Double (Sized) Standards?

Thanks for the Memory to Lars Larson.

Ore. court rules Eagles must allow women members

SALEM -- A state anti-discrimination law requires that Eagles clubs allow women to join, the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday in a decision with little practical impact now that the organization permits membership by both sexes.

The rest can be read at the link. The quote that caught my eye was this one:

In 2-1 ruling, an appeals court panel said the law against sex discrimination in public accommodations applies to the Fraternal Order of Eagles because it operates as a business and basically offers services to the public.
So my question is, what are the odds they'll apply the same standard to Women Only businesses like Curves?
