Byron, if they're just trying to escape the bottom dregs of the male element, why bother having a brother guild at all? Why not just combine the two guilds into one big one that operates on strict rules about maturity?The problem is that they have a policy of exclusion based on gender, not merit or character. That's discrimination, and tolerating discrimination in any form absolutely propagates the negative ideas that cause it.As for "Handling this issue with any more precision (less broad discrimination) would be too time consuming for people", tough shit. If this were an issue or race would you even consider making a statement like that? If they didn't admit homosexuals because gays cause all the drama and its easier to just say no gays, would you pass it off as acceptable? Hell no. Discriminating because its easier is one of the main reasons discrimination is so prevalent, and its not a valid excuse.
