For those who haven't seen it yet or want to comment on it without being ostracized by their peer group . . .
Notice Kansas City LGBT establishments taking a rather "strict" stance toward COVID vaccination requirements. Critics might claim that confronting a vaxx order just to grab a beer seems downright draconian whilst supporters would say the preventative public health measure is performed out of love.
Here's the money line . . .
“This is a decision that we feel is the moral requirement to help safeguard our staff, guests and their families from exposure to the Covid-19 virus,” Woody's KC said in the post.
The post encouraged other businesses to follow suit in order to help slow the spread of the virus.
This begs the question . . .
IS THE KANSAS CITY LGBT COMMUNITY NOW OPENING THE DOOR TO MEDICAL DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS?!?
From an ethical standpoint . . .
There are a whole lot of medical questions proprietors might ask people for access into a quasi-public space (like a pub) and this precedent seems somewhat myopic coming from a community that has been so adversely impacted by horrible, but well-meaning, public health policy over their history.
A peek behind the curtain . . . This story on a slow Sunday is also an easy way to garner "earned media" among a surprising number of folks who might be curious about these places.
