Chick-Fil-A Bigot Day Open Thread

[Content Note: Violent homophobia.]

Well, if you're like me, you've spent at least half your day barfing at straight conservatives posting obnoxious shit about eating at Chick-Fil-A to "support free speech" and whining pitiably about intolerance for Christians if you have the unmitigated temerity to suggest that there is a material difference between: 1) Using corporate profits to fund organizations which lobby for legislation to codify LGBTQI inequality in the US and to criminalize homosexuality and make it punishable by death abroad; and 2) Merely voicing an opinion about same-sex marriage—the latter of which is how this entire debacle is being (mis)characterized in the media.

And then there are the (mostly) straight progressives posting obnoxious shit about how they know it's wrong to support Chick-Fil-A but, gee, oh boy, those chicken sandwiches are just so darn tasty! Jesus Jones. If your palate trumps your principles, your principles are garbage.

I know a lot of contributors/mods and Shakers are dealing with the same shit, so I thought it might be good if we had a safe space in which to talk about it.

Chick-Fil-A can kiss my ass. Now and forever.
