Sweet Meteor of Death, Take Me Now – Pennsylvania Barber Fined For Not Cutting Women’s Hair…

I’m officially saving up money to go live in an abandoned mine and start huffing radon….

barber 1Washington, Pennsylvania – A Pennsylvania barber got slapped with a fine for refusing to give a woman a haircut.

The owner John Interval says his shop is a place for men to relax with a cocktail or a beer. But now, he’s facing legal action from the state’s Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs. Interval says he didn’t know he has to service both genders.

“Paperwork started showing up and I’m like ‘Oh my God,” Interval explained. ‘I didn’t really consider it so much a discrimination thing as it’s a barbershop, you know.’

According to Interval, he will respect the law and pay the $750 fine. (video)

    Why in the world is some woman demanding to have her hair cut at a barbershop!? I’m sure she could get her hair cut at many other places. For goodness’ sake – get a life and leave the barber alone. If they want to have a “he-man woman-haters club” let them have it. It’s as American as “The Little Rascals”! 😉

      I believe it was called “The Gentlemen’s Club” or something like that. That is why he was targeted. He should have cut her hair when she insisted. And, if she ended up looking like a weird man, so what.

          There are tons of “ethnic salons” that cater only to blacks. While I doubt they’d ever explicitly turn away a non-black (for fear of a lawsuit), they make it pretty clear who they WANT as their customers.

              Oh yeah… IF that’s their justification. But my wife and I walked into a “black” salon a few years ago, to ask for directions to another store in the area, and we were given some not-so-nice looks, and a terse “Nope” when we asked if they knew where the other store was. Hopefully our experience was the exception… but I don’t know.

            About 20 years ago, my son was about 7 and we had moved to a town in GA. I was having trouble finding a barber to cut his hair that was going to be in the salon the next month. They seemed to change a lot. So I stopped at an old barbershop off the beaten path. When I opened the door, there were about 8 black faces looking at me and my blond son with straight hair. When I asked if the barber could cut his hair, he apologized and said he could only cut black people’s hair. I just thanked him and that was the end of it. I was not offended.

            This situation was a total set up because it said it was for men. Disgusting.

      What a fool. Barbers only know how to clip hair. They don’t know how to cut longer hair into women’s styles. And if this activist event were to have any traction, she’d end up destroying the opportunity for WOMEN to have any same gender areas. She just must be nuts.

      Feminists fought to get women the right to vote (even to the point of being jailed and force fed on orders from the president), and got a lot of laws changed so that women could stop being second class citizens. I hate that these newer people (who want “trigger warnings” – first wave feminists must be turning over in their graves) give feminists a bad name.

      I have no idea if they consider themselves feminists, but everyone derogatorily calls them that. I wish they had a different name, to distinguish them from the women who did important work, and gave all of us women some of the freedoms we now take for granted and forget that brave, determined feminists fought to get them for us..

    This is a true story. I once had a friend that had no medical insurance. He hurt his elbow and it had formed a pocket of serum. My papa had the same thing happen to him. I took my Papa to the DR and all he did was take out a huge suringe and draw the fluid out. So, I go an idea of what could be done to get it drained. I got his friend to take this guy to a vet. I figured it would be cheaper. They filled out the paper work as one guy, (Matty) being the other guys pet dog. When they were called into the examing room and the vet came in he said, ” where’s your pet dog Matty”? The guy said right here and he pointed to my friend Matty with the elbow fluid. Needless to say the vet was shocked. They showed him the elbow and ask if he would drain it. They explained Matty had no insurance and Matty was in horrible pain. The vet said he could loose his lience for doing such a thing but he pulled out a huge suringe and drained it. He actually patted Matty on the head and gave him a dog biscuit. Then he told them to get out, never come back again and never tell anyone he had helped them out. He didn’t charge them a thing and wadded up the paper work and threw it in the trash. LOL……… Problem solved. No one would be offended except maybe some real dog. They never told me the name of the vet so, they kept their word to him.

    I hope he fights this. It is no different than a customer demanding that a welder build a wooden deck for his house because he’s a fabricator. He could argue that he does not feel comfortable cutting women’s hair because its not his specialty. Just like a welder wouldn’t build a deck unless it was made of metal.

    In the early 1990s, Gordon Logan recognized the huge potential, and relative lack of competition, in the men’s and boys’ haircut market. He wanted to create a place where guys could take care of one of life’s necessities – a haircut – and say “This is my kind of place, I feel comfortable here” when they walked in the door. Assembling a group of passionate industry professionals, Gordon and his team worked together develop the unique Sport Clips Haircuts concept we know today

    Can’t think of why a woman would want her hair cut in a “barbershop” . While I’m sure some barbers can cut/style longer hair I suspect they’re a rare breed these days. FWIW, one of the best haircuts I ever got was done by woman “hair stylist” at her home. I used to get my hair cut at a Stapleton Airport “barbershop” by one or the other of two women while getting my boots shined. It was a thriving business ! None of which is germane to this story !
    One local shop I frequent has a decidedly male atmosphere and I can’t imagine any woman entering for a haircut, unless its for her son and then she’d probably visit the bagel shop next door !

    We know how it began: A female made appts for herself as well as her boyfriend .
    We know how it ended: Owner must pay a $750 fine.
    There is a whole lot of what went on in between that we just don’t know about.

Especially someone who is also an LPN, who doesn’t use drugs, burglarize and steal, and has a good reputation, could do a thriving word-of-mouth business (with people who also don’t steal and rob people who come to their home)

        My hairdresser does visit when one of her older regular customers cannot come to her salon, and sometimes will go to someone if requested, even if they aren’t a regular customer. My previous hairdresser, before I moved, did the same thing.

          In 2002, our town of La Plata was hit with a devastating tornado. The salon my family uses was out of commission for a few months. So, our hairdresser came to our house until the shop was opened again. The look on my then 2yo’s face was priceless. He looked at her like, “What are you doing in my house?”

          In so many ways, big and small, we helped each other out during that time…it was pretty special.

    Place seems a bit frou-frou for my tastes, that’s for sure. To answer the multiple questions, the only other group of women (besides those of the Sapphic persuasion) to get haircuts at a barber are older women who can’t justify (or maybe afford?) getting a salon cut anymore. The barbers usually make special arrangements (first thing in the morning, or on days when he’s app’t only) so that they don’t have to listen to the locker-room language, etc…

    One thing I find interesting: she went to cosmetology school, may have even graduated. So she should know more about the hair cutting business than the average person. To me this stinks of set up. If you read any of the articles, apparently after she complained because they were turning her away they offered to hook her up at a salon and offered to pay for her cut as well. A very generous gesture! i’m tired of these brats. I hope her hair falls out from over-processing.
