Yes, they should be allowed to refuse anyone for any reason
The should be allowed to refuse if it violates their religious beliefs
They should be fined for discriminating against gays
They should lose their B&B license for discriminating against gays
Other, please explain
That seems like thought-crime to me. Shouldn't a person be allowed to think and say what they please, regardless of how other's may feel about it? What forms of discrimination are acceptable in your mind? Suppose the person selling the land said "no poor people", would that be an acceptable form of discrimination in your opinion?Yes, as a seller I want to have that right.
Thing is, I do. I just don't have the right to insult people and encourage discrimination at the same time.
If there is more than one person interested in buying then they do the blind bidding to get as high a price as possible.
The next most usual is fixed price. In normal times this happens when someone wants to sell but has had no offers.
In today's climate a lot of the time people just make the lowest possible offer and then wriggle up if necessary.
People don't make any 'no anybodies' when selling and I don't know of this happening even when racism and homophobia were quite widespread.
I think the only kind of discrimination I can think of is 'no one who does not have sufficient money to pay'.
That makes sense.
George Monboit "Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite."
