No lesbians allowed at New Jersey bridal boutique

Here comes the boycott -- and rightly so:

Last weekend, Alix Genter found the perfect wedding dress. But on Tuesday, the store's owner called and refused to sell it to her.

"She said she wouldn't work with me because I'm gay," Genter told The Philadelphia Daily News. "She also said that I came from a nice Jewish family, and that it was a shame I was gay. She said, 'There's right, and there's wrong. And this is wrong.'"

Apparently, after Genter left Here Comes the Bride, a Somers Point, New Jersey, wedding boutique, the store's owner, Donna Saber, took a moment to look over Genter's customer-information sheet. That's when she noticed that Genter had crossed out "groom" and written in "partner" and her fiancee's name -- and decided that she wasn't going to do business with her.

In related news, Ms. Saber has splurged on a huge neon sign for the front of her store. It reads:

We're bigots. Please boycott us.
