    Default Wwyd offensive beauty therapist?

    I wouldn't go back. My ethics and morals are worth more than my eyebrows. The standard we walk past is the standard we accept.

    I wouldn't go back. A hairdresser I'd been going to for years started saying really offensive things like that and constantly bringing up controversial subjects and trying to argue about them.

    Why would I pay good money to listen to that rubbish at a place I want to feel relaxed?

    No way, i wouldnt go back. I would be way too uncomfortable being around someone with such nasty views. Surely there is somebody around who could still give you great brows.

    If I had to turn away every client of mine who had different views I'd be out of business! I also have had staff of mine who are quite religious and do not believe in gay marriage, they know my stance and do not bring it up/argue in the office or let it effect their dealings with our gay clients, but they are great workers and legally I cannot discriminate against hiring someone because of their beliefs and really unless you know a person quite well you wouldn't really know their personal beliefs ( I doubt most people know how their doctors, lawyers, plumbers, school teachers, butchers etc stance on most topics )
    That's exactly why I said I would have issue with her voicing those opinions, not that she has them. I'm sure you would not tolerate one of your employees sprouting about their views to a client.

    I probably wouldn't go back just as a "f-you" to that person but then, I never would have engaged in that conversation to begin with. Especially while getting my lady bits waxed lol

    I'm well aware that people in society have different views and morals to myself, but if they keep it to themselves, I don't mind. However if I found out someone I regularly used their services hated Jews for example, I would feel too uncomfortable going back to use their services. Same thing for any other bigoted opinion, and even more so if they ranted on about it.

    ETA - kind of how I feel about watching Mel Gibson movies now

    This. I'd go back if I was willing to debate everything she said so it was clear I disagree but to be bluntly honest I like my beauty treatments to be relaxing and would just go elsewhere.

    Difference of opinion is something that may come up in conversation naturally is generally not someting that would cause offence eg admitting you don't like seafood when the other person loves it.

    The situation described above is not a difference in opinion and the woman in question does not need any gold stars for being honest. She is subjecting unsuspecting clients to vitriol and hate speeches. They are paying for her professional services not to be forced to listen to her narrow minded bigoted views.

    No way I would be going back. And I'd be telling her why. And then I wouldn't hesitate to let others know what she's like too.
