When people freely associate, they are engaging in discrimination and unprofitable group work.
The always quotable Joshua Charles said:
“Groups are formed in order to advance causes, ideals, or something of the sort. But if the integrity of that group cannot be maintained, then neither can the causes or ideals for which it was founded in the first place.”
“Freedom of association — the ability to mingle with those you wish to mingle with, to connect with those you wish to connect with, and to join in common cause with them, is a fundamental liberty”

It is a fundamental liberty if we grant it. We must take the lead in banning discrimination in whatever form it appears. Even the appearance of discrimination must be eliminated.
