Dear everyone who’s tired of the Chick-fil-A posts: Sorry. Tough shit. Put on your big girl panties and deal with it. Things like this will stop when this kind of thing doesn’t matter anymore. Until my family is recognized as a family and treated like every other family, as long as we have politicians and CEOs (though, where is the line drawn?) working against us, as long as the bigotry and hate continues to flow from their shit, things like this will continue.
When the Komen Foundation made their stupid shit happen, I got VERY tired of those posts very early on, but I promoted them because it was important. I will more than likely never use Planned Parenthood, so it meant not one damn thing to me. However, a lot of my female friends DO use PP, and the Komen bullshit affected them. I didn’t say anything about it because it didn’t affect me; I supported people who needed the support.
But you know what? Thanks for the support. I’m sorry we’re inconveniencing you with our desire for equality and to not be treated like second-class citizens.
To quote my friend Michael, who said it much better, more calmly, and with less swearing than I:
FYI: I’m tired of talking about that fast food place too.
I’m also tired of being denied my civil rights, tired of being treated like a second-class citizen, tired of people carving “CUNT” into an innocent woman’s body, tired of people being harassed, bullied, attacked and killed because of who they are, and tired of every last fucking GLBT person who says they are “tired of all this Chick-Fil-A talk”.
