And what about the feelings of racists who would like to have a black-free shopping experience?

You see my point? Not all feelings should be pandered to. If people feel bad because a shop refuses to pander to their sexist demands, that’s tough, as far as I’m concerned!

In any case, my complaint is not really about people’s feeling. It is about right and wrong. I don’t campaign against unfair discrimination because it hurts people’s feelings. I campaign against it because it is wrong.

Furthermore, women and girls do get a single-sex changing space in Primark, if that’s what they want, because all customers get access to individual changing cubicles — as I explained in the article.
