"For many members of the LGBT community, the first time they came out, it was to tell the world they were gay. The second time, it was to tell the world they…"
—Go ahead, guess.
It wasn't until a year or so ago that I learned "Chick-fil-A" was not an act you could get arrested for in South Carolina.
Until one employee or customer is discriminated against for their sexual orientation, it's the anti-Chick Fil-A crowd that should retreat to the shadows. Shadows where only McNuggets and those horrible Wendy's Italian chicken sandwiches are served.
@Debussy Fields Or you could eat real chicken, and not reconstituted poultry slurry.
@Debussy Fields And women who want to live with reproductive freedom should keep shopping at Urban Outfitters until a female employee there is punched in the uterus?
I saw Choire's link to this article on twitter and I was going to tweet @ him about it but when I got to this quote my mind erased
You know what? A lot of people are idiots. Luckily, in that article, there are pictures of them.
"It would shock you (how many conservative execs are at the helm of corporations). You wouldn’t be able to step out of your house if you boycotted them all.”
1) It would not shock me, it's almost common knowledge that rich bigots own most huge corporations.
2) It actually is possible to leave your house and not give money to a company owned by a conservative, although yes it's not easy for much of America. But what if everyone made informed decisions as a consumer based on their beliefs? Haha never mind, he's right, you can't fight it so just give in and keep spending money without thinking about who ultimately profits from it or the age/wage of the labor involved. There's nothing you can do, get out your credit card complacent one.
@whizz_dumb: In fact, it surprises me when, occasionally, I learn that a well-known corporation *isn't* run by a sociopath. Most of them are indeed self-styled "conservatives", but even the few that aren't can still be highly obnoxious. In this society, becoming and remaining the chief of a big business practically demands a nearly if not fully psychopathic personality, if only because there are many other such people who will do anything they can get away with to supplant you.
@whizz_dumb There are whole investment funds based on not giving money to jackasses.
