No fatties or fags need apply.

Seriously, how is this any different? I see it all the time. In Southern California.

We fostered a sweet, raggedy old Golden Retriever last year who nobody wanted and came into our home with the ubiquitous kennel cough that every shelter dog we’ve ever adopted came with. We took her to the rescue org’s vet, and this medical professional detected cigarette smoke. They decided they’d rather let the animal sit indefinitely in a cage than let her live to the 15 years or so that our last Golden and German Shepard enjoyed with a couple filthy junkies.

Denying jobs, housing, tell me this is anything less than discrimination. Is tobacco really more dangerous than our addiction to scapegoating?
