More and more companies are going “gay” while at the same time denigrating anybody who has an issue with same-sex, alternate sex, slice and dice sex (transgenderism), and take-your-pick sex.
When it was found out that Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich opposed same-sex marriage, so much pressure was put on him because of his anti-same sex marriage views (he donated to Proposition 8) that he believed that he couldn’t do anything but resign. The Gaystapo would have made it unbearable for him and the company for Eich if he had remain as CEO.
There is a long trail of persecution from the same-sex community for anybody who disagrees with the LGBT agenda.
At the same time, there is an increasing mainstreaming of LGBT views. We saw it with J. C. Penney, General Mills, and recently with Apple.
Now it’s Starbucks.
Starbucks released what is reportedly its very first lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)-themed commercial this week starring the top two contestants from ‘Drag Race’ season six: Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio. The commercial is cheeky, fun and a little bit silly, but it’s nice to see these two gaining some more mainstream traction.
Starbucks has long been an ally to the queer community. Not only did the organization raise a Pride flag over its Seattle headquarters earlier this year, but the company’s CEO famously told an anti-gay shareholder that he was free to ‘sell [his] shares of Starbucks and buy shares in another company if he had a problem with the company’s pro-gay values.’
Fortunately for me I don’t have to make the decision not to purchase coffee from Starbucks because of their pro-homosexual agenda since I’ve only had one cup of coffee in my entire life. I don’t drink the stuff because of a singular bad experience as a child.
I was at my grandparents’ house for some get together. Unbeknownst to me, someone had put out his cigarette in a cold cup of coffee. I picked it up and took a swig. I can still taste it.
The ever-present aftertaste reminds me of what we are seeing with the promotion of all things “gay.”
