Some may criticize actions where one’s opinions end up costing that person his job. I disagree. Freedom of speech does not imply that we must pretend to accept what are backward views. Similarly, while the government is (and should be) limited in actions they can take against people based on their views, private companies and their customers are not. In fact, voicing disapproval is one of the strongest forms of speech we have.
If you hold unpopular views, you yourself may end up being unpopular. And frankly, as un-PC as it is, the ability to quash outmoded views like this help keep us moving forward. You aren’t entitled to be a bigot.
