We got a lot of hate speech feedback last time. Some of it encouraging our no-hate-speech policy. Some of it calling us snowflakes. Most of it in incoherent spelling, grammar, and sentence structure.

Let me be clear – we are a successful enough garage that refusing service to the few foul-mouthed assholes who come through will not hurt us. We respect the diversity of our community members, customers and staff enough to respect their comfort and safety over that of prospective clients.

Furthermore – working in a jumpsuit in a garage with dirty fingernails does not preclude me from having an education, a heart, and a general understanding of acceptable behavior.
