Gay? You can't stay at this hotel

Another unfortunate business blunder. A couple was refused from a hotel because they were gay. Just more inconsiderate people. From the article:
"We were inquiring about the price, deposits, extra person fee, and she asked who the room was going to be for, and I said for my partner and I," Pickel said. “She said, 'Oh we don't rent to multiple people of the same sex.' I said, so you don't rent to gay couples? She said, 'No, we don't rent to gay people at all.'"
It is ridiculous that people think that it is alright to do such a thing. They are not allowed to discriminate based on sex, race, or many other criteria, but how is being gay any different? A little tolerance would be nice.
