A gay couple were turned away from a Berkshire guest house by the owner who said it was "against her convictions" for two men to share a bed.
Is it possible to be annoyed that these guys got turned away and yet kind of agree that, no matter how bigoted her opinion might be, as a PRIVATE guest house, the owner should have the right to not take gay couples into her home if it makes her uncomfortable?
If I was running a B&B and some staunch religious zealot would book a room (let's assume I knew he was a religious zealot!), I would be uncomfortable about renting a room to someone who so clearly disapproves of me and my 'life style'. So I would probably refuse him. That makes me a bigot too I suspect. Well, so be it.
A B&B is MUCH more personal than a hotel as you really are staying in someone's house. When I book a B&B, I always check they are gay friendly, either by asking or by checking with gay websites or guide books. It is just not worth the trouble. Most of the time, people say: No problem, I don't know why you even ask. But better to ask than to be turned away, right?
Instead of going to the police to report her, we should work on educating people like her so she's no longer uncomfortable. Otherwise people like her will only feel pushed into a corner against their will. This will only strengthen her beliefs and the fear they are under threat. *Puts on flame-proof trousers*.
