So the absolute truth is that this Guyd has never even tried a Chick-fil-A anything … I didn’t even know how to pronounce the retailer’s name until last week! I didn’t give much thought to their hateful rhetoric and pathetic attempts at sharing wack ‘religious’ views through their fast food crap, but then I saw the likes of Sarah Palin (pictured below) and U.S. senate hopeful Ted Cruz showing their support…
Today I got this press release at my office via Senior Editor David Toussaint, and I thought it was totally worth a share with our readers.
TeesWithTude.com, the subtle, smart, and snarky tees & sweats web site, has proclaimed Wednesday, August 1st, to be “Chick-fil-Gay Day” across the United States of America.
The folks at TeesWithTude.com were greatly disturbed by Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s decision to inject his religious beliefs into everyone’s favorite chicken sandwich, but were planning to stay out of the resulting brouhaha. However, when former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee called for a “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” on August 1st, they decided they could no longer stay out of the fray. The company chose to fight back by calling for a “Chick-fil-Gay Day” on the same day to remind everyone that discrimination of any kind is never okay.
“We fully believe in Dan Cathy’s right to run his business as he see fit,” said Larry Peck, founder of TeesWithTude.com. “But we have a right to find their regressive homophobic beliefs extremely offensive, and we also have the right to mock them with our snarky Chick-fil-gay designs. Besides,” he added, “it’s kind of fun. Ok, it’s a lot of fun!”
To show their continued support for the LGBT community, TeesWithTude.com will be donating 10% of all Chick-fil-gay design sales made on August 1st – 3rd to GLSEN: Gay, Lesbian, & Straight Education Network.” (http://www.glsen.org)
All of TeesWithTude.com’s “Chick-fil-gay” designs can be viewed at: http://www.Chick-fil-gay.com
TeesWithTude.com’s artists are inspired daily by postings from Twitter and Facebook, commentary from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, and stories from all areas of the mainstream media. The site allows virtually anyone in the United States to order over 2,500 designs on over 30 products (T-shirts, sweats, hats, tank tops, baby bibs, toddler tees, etc.).
So get yourself a T-shirt and tell your friends, family, co-workers, loved ones, and anyone else you respect to avoid this fast food house of hate.
