More Governent Stupidiy

From Fox News: There aren’t too many places left in America where a guy can just be a guy and do guy things — like talk about sports and tell a few jokes and hoist back a root beer — or two.
But the barbershop is still one of those places — a sanctuary for manliness. Except — that is – in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
John Interval owns Barbiere – a high end gentleman’s barber shop in the town of Washington. The shop features leather chairs, beer on tap and Sinatra on the stereo.
The other day Mr. Interval was slapped with a big fine after he refused to cut a lady’s hair – $750.
The state’s Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs said he was guilty of gender discrimination.
But Mr. Interval says it’s got nothing to do with discrimination.
“I didn’t really consider it so much a discrimination thing as — it’s a barber shop — for guys,” he told television station KDKA. 
Seems a lot of folks agree with Mr. Interval. Nearly 100 have signed a petition opposing the board’s ruling.
“I think it’s ridiculous,” customer Jeff Andrewson,” told The Observer-Reporter. “You can clearly see no women come here to get their hair cut.”
But the state says the law is the law — which makes about as much sense as a guy going to a gynecologist for a prostate exam.
I go to barbershops-not beauty salons:
Bu there is a solution to the problems barber has.
Next me a woman  comes in demanding a haircut, give them this kind of haircut:
