“1,000 years from now there will be no guys and no girls, just wankers. Sounds great to me.”
-Mark “Rent-boy” Renton, Trainspotting

A barbershop in Pennsylvania has been fined $750 for refusing to cut a woman’s hair.

Barbiere of Washington County is aimed at the upscale gentleman’s market, offering clients a complimentary cocktail or a cold beer with their haircut.

But owner John Interval ran into trouble with authorities when staff refused to cut a woman’s hair in his establishment.

Diamond Pecjak filed an action with the state’s Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs after the incident.

No barbershops for men, no beauty salons for women. Little boys and little girls in identical jumpers playing identical gender-free games with gender-free toys. A round hole for every peg.

No men, no women, only wankers — Human-Units with no individuality beyond the happy chores of a life where everything not compulsory is forbidden.
