Single sex clubs banned

Wendy McElroy reports:
Last week, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing filed a lawsuit against the Santa Rosa health club Body Central.

According to the agency, which enforces California's civil rights and anti-discrimination laws, the club's women-only policy violates the civil rights of men.

In 1995, the California Supreme Court decided a case in which a woman demanded entry into an exclusive men-only golf club. The court ruled that private clubs operating as businesses were required to follow state laws against discrimination.
I think that California should allow single-sex clubs. It is a little strange how liberals promote same-sex marriage but want to outlaw same-sex clubs.
