Of all of the legitimate reasons to boycott McDonalds, their decision to join the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce should not be one of them. Let me see if I can figure this out. We should not get upset because when they open restaurants in different countries they don't use local produce....no that isn't a problem. Hmmm, how about the fact that most nutritionists recommend that you rarely, to never consume their food because of the high level of fat and cholesterol (supersize me anyone?)...mmm nope again. Perhaps their position on the unionization of their employees could be slightly problematic...nope not that either. What about those little toys in the Happy Meals that are made by exploited labour in China.... nope guess again...horror, oh horror McDonalds won't discriminate against gay people.
According to TwincCities.com, "Hatred has no place in our culture," McDonald's USA spokesman Bill Whitman said. "That includes McDonald's, and we stand by and support our people to live and work in a society free of discrimination and harassment."
How can anyone possibly chug down an artery clogging Big Mac with the knowledge that corporate executives actually believe that what other people do with their genitals is their own business. Just imagine a society where what people do in the privacy of their bedroom is not strictly controlled and disciplined . This is not the way Orwell promised us the world would be. Didn't anyone else read 1984? Damn it, how can we call this a safe, "family" environment if the company won't get on board with hate. Children can never reach their true potential unless we teach them what to be bigoted about, after all the opportunity to close a mind to human rights should never be wasted. Our precious little ones might grow up and decide that they have the right to love, whoever and however they want, thus bringing an end to civilization as we know it. That is simply not worth the risk, so get onboard and boycott people.
It is your God given right to hate damn it. You are just trying to protect truth, freedom and the American way, values that society was founded on. What good did a queer ever contribute huh? It's not like they serve in the military, work as lawyers, judges, social workers, scientists, teachers etc....No they couldn't possibly contribute anything to our growth, it's all just a vicious conspiracy meant to undermine the patriarchal family. Adam and Eve dear, not Adam and Steve. So remember to do your part and boycott, boycott. Use the power of your consumer dollars to let this corporation know that it can exploit on a global scale, contribute to obesity and heart disease, but showing tolerance, and acceptance towards gay people is just wrong.
