Newsweek presents a ratio-worthy theory why tanning salons are ‘opening in LGBT neighborhoods,’ facepalms ensue
The temperature of the following hot take is incredibly high, so it comes with an oven mitt warning before attempting to handle this:
Tanning salons could be targeting gay men by opening in LGBT neighborhoods, putting them at risk of cancer https://t.co/6hy8hltrKu

Tanning salon chooses not to open a salon in an LGBT neighborhood = discrimination
Tanning salon chooses to cater to LGBT wish for salon close to home = putting them at risk of cancer

When you have no idea how businesses work, you come up with idiotic nonsense like this.
Did it ever occur to you knuckleheads that they're opening in LGBT neighborhoods because LGBT people, especially gay men, might tan more than other people? https://t.co/gQaVO46Ebr
