a giant, unrepentant homophobe? Back in February she'd been ordered by a Stockholm court to pay her lesbian would-be customer damages for discrimination and harassment, a decision she disagreed with and later appealed. Today came word that her appeal was rejected, meaning she has to fork over 20,000 kronor (a little more than $2,500) for being a hateful jerk.
The weirdest part of the story was the kennel owner's reasoning behind blocking the sale of the puppy: She didn't want to sell a dog to a gay owner because of issues she had with transvestites, who she thought were involved with animal pornography.
