Last week I wrote about how people are like, so tired and stuff of the Chick-Fil-A stories going around and how people are reacting to it. I must say that I am getting tired, too, but not of the activism and the wonderful support that the gay community is receiving.
I am tired of the laziness; it’s almost as if people have never even heard of a boycott. I guess they have very short memories. I am tired of the hate; but aren’t we all tired of that—at least those of us who want it to stop, anyway? But right now, in this moment, I am just so sick and tired of the same “free speech” argument, which is what I’ve been seeing over and over again, especially by my own so-called open-minded friends.
“He’s just expressing his mind!” they will wail over the CEO’s words. No, he is not, actually, if you bothered to spend more than two seconds on this issue and any other. They are not just funding anti-marriage campaigns (which is heinous enough) and the denial of 1,400+ rights that gay couples are denied, but they are also providing funding for vile so-called studies that say that lesbians and gays can be “cured,” that gays are pedophiles, that countries like Uganda who want to kill people just for being LGBT should have no problem doing so... And people are OK with this “free speech.”
