Is My Story Discrimination or Not?

By law my story is not considered discrimination. There are no laws protecting against my situation, but my question is should there be laws against this type of housing discrimination?

The word Discrimination is defined by several words such as unfairness, separation, to make distinctions in treatment, show partially or prejudice, tell apart, be a bigot.

I called about a house for rent in Ohio. The man was very nice and kind to me about renting his home until I said my husband was in the military. At this point he stated he could not rent to me due to my husband being in the military. I was appalled by his words. So I asked why? He stated if my husband were to be deployed we wouldnt have to pay him rent and we could get out of our lease without having to pay anything if we wanted to. This was news to me. I spoke to Fair Housing in my area and I was told this was not true. I was told by Fair Housing I would have to pay my rent as I would any other bill. (I am not sure what all is true) However, my local newspaper said they would put in an article about my complaint. The local paper has never called me back when they said they would and they wouldnt return my phone calls. I did get to email the person who was handling this and he was acting as though I was too pushy from what I gathered and that it would be several months before they got an article together. I still havent heard anymore in the progress of this.

I wouldnt complain about this if we didnt pay our bills and we tried to do someone wrong but we are honest people making a living honestly. We have no reason or interest in doing someone that way if we rented off of them. If my husband was deployed I would have to have some place to live. He would make better money deployed than he does where he works full time. However that still isnt enough to rent off of some people. I wouldnt be moving unless my lease was up or my landlord was willing to work with me if I needed to move otherwise a lease is a lease to me. This man also said he supports the men and woman of the military. Can you tell me how?

This is not just because my husband is in the military. This type of discrimination can be done to anyone. For example: if you work for the newspaper someone could say they wont rent to you. You have blue eyes, Sorry I cant rent to you. There are no laws protecting us from these kinds of discriminatory acts. Housing discrimination is illegal by federal law based on your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or disability.

If you feel there should be an addition to the Housing Discrimination Laws Please sign this petition and pass it on for others to sign. Someone who is willing to die for their country and to protect our freedoms should not be treated in this manner. Discrimination is Discrimination. Please sign my petition stating that Housing Discrimination laws needs to be changed to protect us against this type of Discrimination.
