Boycotts called against Oreo cookies
« on: June 27, 2012, 08:38:19 pm »
I'm not sure if this has been discussed yet on this forum, but I found an article from BuzzFeed, that has collected hateful and intolerant comments from anti-gay Facebook posters who condemn gay people and are making a call to boycott Oreo cookies.

Here's the link to the article: How Could ANYONE Boycott A Cookie?

Now I know the ignorant comments collected by Buzzfeed are from intolerant jerks, it still saddens me that there are people who think those thoughts about me and an entire group of people, and how we're still so hated simply for existing. Yeah, and THEY claim that they're the persecuted ones. These people have no idea what it's like to receive real persecution.

Fix link plz.



Lol.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

Funny, it worked fine in preview. Oh, and BTW, I'm sorry that I can't even get a link right anymore. It took me three tries to get that link to parse properly.

I wonder if he knows Neil Patrick Harris is gay. . .
That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)

Don't worry, it was just a post in TPSIFR, not a thread.

Ah, okay. I went into F&B afterward and I couldn't find a thread related to this. I wanted to start some discussion over how religiously intolerant people and groups get all bent out of shape when a company, a private company, supports equal rights, as if such an action is somehow a personal slight against the religious nuts. Seeing all the calls to violence and condemnation of gay people from those comments kinda makes me feel a bit bummed out that there is still so much hate toward us, and that there are still people out there who are bent on wanting to destroy us.

They act like it's a religion, or a political doctrine, or something.

That one has to be a troll no one can be that homophobic to the point where they invent a new word. On a side note who else thinks Gayism would be the greatest name for a gay bar or dance club?

Agreed.

You forgot JCPenneys, we have a gay spokesperson, and have been featuring gay couples in our catalogs.
