3) That legislation would be an effective remedy
4) That the benefit of legislation would outweigh the cost (to say nothing of the infringement on freedom)
This is also ignoring the fact that the "prohibited basis" classes that exist in legislation were put there due to centuries if not millennia of oppression and this is something that was invented in the last couple years (if at all).
