I’m so glad all this Chik-Fil-A shit is finally coming out. When I was in high school (mid 80’s) a friend of mine was fired from there when a district manager showed up for some reason and perceived him as being gay. They made up some other excuse but apparently he later found out that one of the girls that worked there that was a fucking holy roller said something to the store manager who then passed it along which eventually saw his employment terminated. I have experienced throughout my life, in one way or another, all the shit people are just now starting to notice cause it FINALLY impacts them. The Chik-Fil-A thing, the Occupy movement, police brutality and harassment, all these things are situations I have either taken part in protesting for decades or been victim/privy to personally or indirectly through friends and acquaintances and its nice that people are finally being forced to deal with them in a way that makes them take notice and not just be able to look away and pretend it doesn’t affect them anymore. Too long people have kept their heads in the sand and that is no longer an acceptable reaction to this sort of injustice. I feel validated in a way that the things I had spoken out against and worked to right (while being shouted down by people in power) are finally being acknowledged and finally beginning to be dealt with. I wanna hope this is the beginning of something better, a new dawn, a brighter day, an awakening of sorts…..but I just don’t know. I honestly think most people don’t have the stomach for it and this worries me greatly.
