Go Buy A Scissors, Guvvy! (How It Works In A Free Market)
A gay hair stylist in Santa Fe has refused to cut the anti-gay-marriage governor’s hair. From MSNBC:
A Santa Fe hairdresser is waging his own boycott of sorts: He is denying service to the governor of New Mexico because she opposes gay marriage.
Antonio Darden, who has been with his partner for 15 years, said he made his views clear the last time Gov. Susana Martinez’s office called to make an appointment.
“The governor’s aides called not too long ago wanting another appointment to come in,” Darden told KOB.com. “Because of her stances and her views on this, I told her aides, ‘no.’ They called the next day asking if I’d changed my mind about taking the governor in, and I said ‘no’ again.”
Martinez has said marriage should be between a man and a woman. Darden, who said he has cut the governor’s hair three times, said he won’t serve her unless she changes her mind about gay marriage.
“If I’m not good enough to be married, I’m not going to cut her hair,” Darden told The New Mexican on Wednesday.
