A lesbian requested a manly haircut at a barbershop in Toronto, but was turned down by the Muslim proprietor on religious grounds. Now she has taken her case to — surprise! — the Ontario Human Rights Commission.
The HRC spokesbeing in this news report says that there is no hierarchy of rights, and no one class of right can trump another. But I think she’s wrong: experience has shown that ethnicity trumps women’s rights, gay rights, and all the others. Since Islam has deliberately and deftly converted itself into a “race”, the rights of Muslims trump everything.
