    Sexual Discrimination

    Please Visit dailyopinioninternational.com for more stories like this

    There was a waiter by the name of Dayna Morales served a seeming normal table of four expecting a big tip with a bill of over ninety dollars. Instead of the big tip, there was a hateful note outlining the reasons for the absence of a tip. On the bill, it said,Im sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and the way you live your life." Like the incident a few years ago at Applebees about a pastor not paying a waiter a tip, Ms. Morales posted her reciept on a Facebook page of a LGBT Support group where it stormed across the internet and major news sources around the world.

    Morales picked up on the hate when the mother of the family of four commented on her appearance by saying, "I thought your name was going to be Dan." But there was no further discussion of her sexuality during the meal, and Morales says she never even told them that she's a lesbian. But she acted professionally and continued to serve them. No words were given back and forth. She found the note after the customers had already left the restaurant. Morales isn't the only server suffering with this problem, when a waiter at a restaurant chain in Kansas received a note from the diners he served condemning his perceived homosexual lifestyle instead of a tip.

    A former Marine, Ms. Morales is a proud lesbian and roused the support of people acroos the globe and everyone offering donations to her for the lack of a 10 dollar tip. She did not accept the money for herself, and donated some of the money she's received to the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides aid to wounded servicemen and women as they transition from military to civilian life. She would donate the rest of the money to a LGBT community.

    Donations and LGBT supporters have supported Ms. Morales from South Africa and Germany. The restaurant she worked at actually paid her 15% of the 92 dollar bill, and agreed to match the amount she donates to charity. Morales says she has intermittently worked as a server for about a decade, and that in all her years waiting tables she's never faced discrimination on account of her sexuality. And while she initially posted the photo of the receipt on Facebook just to vent her feelings to friends and family, she now hopes that her experience will remind people that gay discrimination still exists and shouldn't be tolerated.

    It's an issue that needs to be figured out. It's not okay to label people and treat them with disrespect, and this is still happening. Gay people should be openly accepted into the society where people can keep their opinions to themselves. HATERS GONNA HATE!

    People who behave this way are, to put it simply, just very sad individuals. They have a deep seeded need to put someone else down simply because they are not very secure in who they themselves are. If there were not others that they could point to in order to belittle them in some way they would have no way to feel good about themselves. Although it is sad that the waitress was treated unfairly the real travesty is that somewhere, somehow, someone failed miserably in raising a psychologically sound and mentally healthy individual... and behaviors like this are the unfortunate result of their failure.

    If this is true this young lady has a lot of explaining to do. This just hurts her cause not helps. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
