I wouldn't want to join any club that didn't want me as a member. The entire purpose of having a private "club" in the first place is so that people, who pay THEIR OWN MONEY to be there, can consort with other people that they want to be around. That's why it's a private club and that's why it costs money to join.
Yeah... those standards exist to keep the riff-raff out. The rules are prejudiced and unfair. People who join such clubs can be real assholes.
If that's true, why would you sue to get into the place?
B. Birgit Koebke golfs alone because no one at her country club will play with her. She hits the links late in the day to avoid running into hostile club members. If a group of golfers happens to be ahead of her, they don't let her play through. "I just sit there and wait," she says. "They've made it impossible for me to enjoy the club."
Does she resign from the club and tell the members to kiss her ass? NO! Of course not! She sues to gain membership privileges for her lesbian partner.
I don't understand this kind of thinking. It seems to go like this: I knew the rules when I joined. Now I don't like the rules. Nobody in the club will change the rules to suit ME. Therefore, I must sue to FORCE them to change to suit ME.
Why don't the loving lesbians just try THIS?
At Bernardo Heights, Judy Stillman says she and her husband enjoyed golfing with Koebke when they joined about three years ago, not knowing about the conflict.
She and her husband quit the club. Imagine that. She and her husband didn't like the way people acted at the club, so they took their money and went elsewhere. That's... that's OUTRAGEOUS! Why quit the club when a hissy-fit and a lawsuit would have been much more appropriate? Man, a good hissy-fit and a lawsuit can bend EVERY MEMBER OF THAT CLUB to YOUR will, if you get the case in front of the right judge.
That's the entire point of this affair, isn't it? I am going to MAKE YOU do it MY WAY!!! Self-important butt-rags. Who died and told those two that the sun rose and set in their asses?
I hope they win. The club certainly will welcome them with open arms after that.
