On the other hand, I understand that this is a free country and people can say and do whatever they want. Dan Cathy has the freedom to denounce my marriage but I have the same freedom to get on this blog and call the lady at table 17 a big ho for not tipping me. I guess it all boils down to freedom of speech. He has his opinion and I have mine. It's what makes this country, right?
But as for this Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, there are no restaurants here in New York City so I didn't get to see how it went down. Not that I would protest, really. Again, he has the right to run his business the way he wants to just like I can run my blog and Facebook Page the way I want to. One of my Facebook friends in Texas announced on her wall that she was going to Chick-fil-A today. She is no longer a friend of mine. If you want to be my friend, you have to respect my life and if you respect my life, you don't go to Chick-fil-A today. I can understand if you want to go once in a while. I am "guilty as charged" on that count. But to go to today sorta means that you are specifically against gay equality. I have been with my partner for 21 years. We have been officially married for four months. I get a lot more out of my relationship with my husband than I ever could out of a chicken sandwich, so I think I will be fine if I never go to Chick-fil-A again. It just does not seem worth it.
So to Dan Cathy, Mike Huckabee and everyone else who thinks that same-sex marriage is an abomination, I would like to take advantage of the free speech that we have in this country and use my blog to state my opinion about you:
Wake up and smell the fucking processed chicken, you stupid hate-mongering bigoted fools. There will come a time when people will look back at this era in our country and wonder what took so long for people to realize that same-sex marriage is no big deal. It only strengthens our country and it has absolutely no effect on a marriage between a man and woman. If my marriage is hurting your marriage, then you are the one with the problem, not me. The longer you hold on to your antiquated beliefs, the more foolish you will appear. It seems that everyone would want to be on the right side of history, but if you want to stay in the dark ages, you go right ahead. Meanwhile, companies who have embraced diversity like Coca-Cola, JC Penny and McDonald's will reap the financial benefits of encouraging everyone to buy their products instead of just a section of society. Mark my words, someday same-sex marriage will be legal all across the country and when it happens you will see that you should have come to your own decision rather than waiting for the government to do it for you. In the meantime, I embrace the freedom of speech in our country to give you a great big, glitter-coated FUCK YOU.
