    Didn’t see the reason behind the anecdote til after. Great work Jon. I see it. ┬áIn the end half the people won’t even remember what we were fighting about to begin with. Cycle continues.

    This is the best thing I’ve read in a very long time, and I read a lot.

    Wait this doesn’t really characterize the Chick fila(w/e I’ll never eat fast food so fuck the name) movement.The majority of these idiots just had a sit in where they kissed as if that were going to do anything.

      LOL, Kissing, I’m afraid, generally leads to a whole separate set of problems. Now, I’m fully aware that once I reached the protests turned riots, the events described in my article do not parallel the reality of the homophobic chicken movement. I simply took things a few steps farther via throwing in violence and absurdist humor, to both A) Help demonstrate the sheer ridiculousness of it all, and B) Allude to my contention that, in the end, humanity will probably wind up wiping itself out as a result of letting something equally fucking stupid escalate to the point of no return.
