eHarmony.com Sued For Anti-Gay Policy
First the facts. eHarmony.com does not accept gay or lesbians on their site which is one of the larger net based dating sites. It was founded by evangelical Christian Dr. Neil Clark Warren.
eHarmony was sued on Thursday for refusing to offer its services to gays and lesbians.
A lawsuit alleging discrimination based on sexual orientation was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of Linda Carlson, who was denied access to eHarmony because she is gay.
Lawyers bringing the action said they believed it was the first lawsuit of its kind against eHarmony, which has long rankled the gay community with its failure to offer a "men seeking men" or "women seeking women" option.
The lawusit looks as if it will be a class action suit. So what do I really think about this? Who cares if the site is only for heteros? I'm no attorney, although I would assume that if this business is operating in California, they must adhere to California law.
But come on now folks. Who really cares? Let them discriminate. There are tons of other dating sites if you must find a mate online. PLUS, then we wouldn't get these funny commericals from eHarmony's competitor Chemistry.com
