Masks & Stores

Him: “What is the difference between a store that won’t allow people to come in without masks or limiting how many can come in and refusing to bake a cake for somebody?”

Me: “One is a store setting limits on people based on what they consider safety standards, and if customers don’t, they can be asked to leave, and if they don’t, they’re trespassing. The cake incident was a violation of the state’s anti-discrimination laws, people not wearing masks or wanting to have more people in a shop are not a recognized minority or group protected from discrimination.”
