PC ALERT! Woman files complaint over "Albino Rhino" beer.

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse.

‘Albino Rhino’ beer at Earls Restaurants target of human rights complaint


Ordering the house beer at an Earls restaurant just became a human rights issue.


The popular restaurant chain, with outlets across Western Canada and Ontario, is the target of a complaint over the name of its brew: Albino Rhino.


Ikponwosa (I.K.) Ero of Vancouver has alleged to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal that the name singles out people like her who suffer from albinism, the absence of pigment from the skin, hair and eyes.


In her complaint - which also takes aim at Earls' Albino Wings Wednesdays - Eros alleges the name demeans her and other albinos by deliberately evoking a sense of oddness about the condition, CBC News reports.


It's a medical condition, not a taste treat, Ero argues.


I'm offended that everyone always has to be offended about something.

You know, as a lesbian, pro-choice, feminist, black, albino, dwarf, adult-survivor of alcoholic divorced parents who voted for Reagan and were members of a Christian church, I cannot even walk outside my own house without being offended by something.

You damn Conservatives!
