New York Daily News reports that a “gay” New Mexico hairdresser is refusing to serve Gov. Susana Martinez again unless she abandons the actual definition of marriage and capitulates to the left’s demands. He insists that she recognize the silly, postmodern and oxymoronic redefinition of the timeless marriage institution. This is the hairdresser’s constitutional right and, at BarbWire, we support him 100 percent. That said, his anti-Christian bigotry is a fabulous example of the painfully apparent hypocrisy inherent within the “progressive” worldview. What’s good for the goose is good for the “gay” gander. Double standard much?
Reports the Daily News:
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez needs a new hairdresser — or a new stance on gay marriage.
Martinez was recently dropped by her hair stylist, Antonio Darden, who is gay.
Darden told a local news station that he cut the governor’s hair three times, but won’t do it again as long as she continues to oppose gay marriage.
“The governor’s aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in,” he told KOB-TV. “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.”
Martinez has said she believes marriage should be between a man and woman.
Darden, a popular stylist in Santa Fe and the owner of Antonio’s Hair Studio, has been with his partner for 15 years.
“It’s just equality, dignity for everyone,” he said. “Everybody should be allowed the right to be together.”
Gay marriage is not recognized in New Mexico.
