If you know anything about me, you know I’m all about equal rights, equal opportunity, equal everything. To be honest, I’m way too passive about most things to really care about what other people are doing with THEIR lives. I make my choices and I don’t want the way I live to be stripped, so why should I care what other people are doing?

If you’re gay, you’re gay. If you want to eat and eat and eat and drink 32 ounce beverages, and be obese, why do I care?

Just like me, you have the freedom to do what you want, as long as it doesn’t effect the people around you. See, I’m pretty passive. In fact, if you want to date a person that doesn’t really exist solely because you need to tell your family “yes mom, I’m dating, and I’m completely happy with them. We’re talking marriage and kids even,” why do I care?

I don’t.

What I do care about, is when basic rights are stripped away from people. Again though, it’s only mild care… I tend to be not that aggressive when it comes to things that don’t effect me. I don’t think it makes me a horrible person. I think it makes me passively supportive of causes around the world.

Chick-Fil-A, oh Chick-Fil-A….why do you have to go against the grain?

The reality is, most young people that eat your food are just like me. They don’t care about your opinions, they care about your chicken. Your good chicken. I have never tasted anything as deliciouis as a Chick-Fil-A sandwich in relation to other fast food chains.

Whomever it was in your business establishment that came up with putting pickles on your sandwiches was a culinary genius. They should be given a high five immediately.

Whomever decided to let the president of the company take a stand on “opposite sex” relations should be fired immediately. No high five out the door for them.

AT THE END OF THE DAY… all people care about is your chicken. So why rock the boat? But you did.

Protestors decided two days after “Chick-Fil-A” appreciation day (yes, it now exists!) to demonstrate a national “kiss in” where people who are part of the LGBT community would enter a Chick-Fil-A and kiss a person of the same sex in opposition to the company’s recent stance against “gay marriage.”

I’m not a fan of PDA in general…unless I’ve had a few adult beverages. Then I’m open for anything, YES anything. But I’m proud of those standing up for their cause. I agree wholeheartedly with what they are doing.

Chick-Fil-A, you brought this on yourself. What’s upsetting now, I just don’t feel like going in to get one of your tasty sandwiches anymore. Not that there are any Chick-Fil-A’s anywhere to be found in NYC. But, if there were, I’d just have to passively walk away. That makes me sad, because your chicken is quite amazing… all because you had to be all up in the world with your opinions.

I hope a lesson is learned, next time… keep yo’ mouff shut!
