The way things are changing rapidly in society the tables can easily turn the other way, and I would actually find it offensive to basically read "straight people are welcome too" if I had to find somewhere to stay, eat, etc.....

This is how you draw attention and single out groups instead of just letting them be themselves.

If everyone were perfect, just like all of us here at Zihuatanejo.net, then we would never have to worry about the reverse situation you fear occurring. Alas, people are not rational. Some can be very mean-spirited, petty, and looking to exact revenge for past grievances, real and imagined. The scenario you describe has already played itself out and will continue to do so, albeit in tiny oases where individuals feel comfortable enough to exert their own toxic brand of reverse discrimination. On the 100th anniversary of the birth of the famed novelist Kurt Vonnegut, let us end this observation of human nature by lamenting, "So it goes."

Note: If you have never read anything by Kurt Vonnegut and it is unlikely you will ever pick up a copy of Slaughterhouse-Five or Cat's Cradle because you just don't ever read any novels, enjoy this extremely short but terrifying dystopian short story, Harrison Bergeron. It will take you less than 5 minutes and you will never again wish that we were all equal.
