Discriminating based on sexual orientation

Can you believe that it is legal to discriminate based on sexual orientation?

The link above is to the news article reporting that Gay Anti-Discrimination legislation was voted down today in Washington State. Because of this, gays can be fired from any job for being gay, kicked out of any rental housing for being gay, turned away at a restaurant for being gay, or anything else that normally would be protected under this states Discrimination Laws. Washington would've become the 17th state to ban this type of discrimination. There is no national ban.

I really can't believe this. Oh well... only a matter of time before it does get passed.
