Just Who are the Haters?

Hubby and I spent the afternoon yesterday in the town of Port Townsend, on the Olympic Peninsula, collecting on the last of the Jazz package we bought at an auction (dinner at the Hanazono Asian Noodle House).  Before dinner, we walked up what seemed like 1,000 steps to check out the Uptown neighborhood.  Walking down Washington Street, we came across a little Cafe.  This sign was in its front window, for passersby to see.

So, is this the way an eatery should welcome prospective customers?  This sign is asking people to check their biases, and move on if any of the above describes their point of view.  This sign is winnowing down the universe of people who might like the food and beverages they serve.  And which part of this sign jumps out at the casual passer-by?  How about You’re NOT Welcome Here.  Well, if I’m not welcome here, I’ll just walk on by. And I’ll spread the word to all my friends and acquaintances that they are not welcome here either.  The people who post this kind of sign in their front window are the ones who have the bumper-stickers on their car which say “Coexist”, and “Teach Tolerance”.  Not terribly tolerant, are they?

I’m not much into the vandalism thing, but this made me want to throw a brick through that window.

  1. Especially when you know that there’s a good chance that a guy will defend it by lecturing you on how his feelings on what women think are more valid that you, a woman, actually thinking.

    That’s before “racism” has come to mean “don’t properly define people by their race,” rather than “defines people by their race.”
