    I wouldn't go back.
    If I were to go back and not say anything then I am almost complicit in what they're saying. It's like passive support. I'd hate anyone thinking I agreed with that vile crap.
    At the time I would probably respectfully ask them not to say things like that again as I find it offensive. I've done that before. What do they say all it takes is a few good people to stand by...
    DH and I have very close friends who are gay and I have heard awful stories of them getting abused in public by homophobes. One of our dear friends (a 50 year old woman) keeps her 10 year relationship secret in her workplace due to homophobic attitudes.
    I could never on my conscience knowingly associate with people like that as I would feel so disrespectful to my friends

    I would not return. She has the right to express her own opinion and I can express my lack of support for her being vocal about her views (you can't offend someone with as thought but you can when you turn those thoughts into words or actions) by spending my money elsewhere.

    Like PP, I would feel that by not calling out those attitudes it implies support of those views.

    I probably wouldn't go back. Yes people are entitled to their own opinion, that doesn't mean they have to express it, particularly to paying customers. If I were a business owner there is no way I would enter into discussion on religion or politics for fear of upsetting them. Particularly if those discussions include bigoted, offensive views like these.

    I would try and find someone else.

    Some people's differing opinions I can handle - that to me is an outright awful thing to share with a client.

    That's actually very true. Which is why she should of stuck with the beauty services and not expressed those sort of opinions to begin with. The OP wanted her eye brows waxed. Not to be subjected to her vitriol.

    You can't educate an ignorant fool but you can choose where your money goes. No way would I financially or otherwise be supporting a homophobe.

    In business it's about being professional. How does she not know you're gay, a close relation isn't etcetera. Same if she sprouted off about religion. People can have personal opinions like that, but to be bringing them up during a business service is unprofessional and unethical. I wouldn't be returning and no matter her clientele or how great she is, unprofessional conduct (which is what it is) shouldn't be tolerated or paid for.

    That's what got me wondering.
    Does she do this to weed out the gay/lesbian clients and those who support them? Like 6-12 sessions and she'll drop the bombshell to gauge where you stand?

    I'm a sucker for good eyebrows, but I wouldn't return.
    Making opinions like that known outside of work would probably be enough for me as it is... Voicing those opinions in a professional setting would be a definite no.
