Has anyone ever boycotted a company for being anti-gay?

    Some gay people boycott Chick-fil-a and (in the past) Target. Does anyone here do this?

    But now Target has Ellen as their spokesperson or something, wasn't it?

    I'd also like to wonder if any companies who have supported gay rights rose in sales icon_razz.gif

    I have, and still do. I've not set foot inside an Urban Outfitters or Target in a long time, and have no particular need to do so ever again. There is no Chik-fil-a around here that I know of, but even if there were, I wouldn't go... the food ain't THAT good (coughcoughMikecoughcough).

    I try to avoid buying Georgia Pacific products (Brawny, Angel Soft, Quilted Northern, etc.) because I loathe the Koch Brothers. But Koch Industries is so large, it would be nearly impossible to avoid them entirely.

    It's a shame too because I love me the Brawny man.

    I do. I boycott Chic F Lay or however you spell it. Urban Outfitters, the state of Utah and some local joints here in LA that contributed to Yes On 8.

    Isn't Ellen with J.C. Penny?

    I used to make my family avoid Cracker Barrel - my father's favorite restaurant - until that whole debacle was dealt with.

    I haven't. I was on a chic-fil-a and energy drink diet at the end of my last semester of college. =/ That shit's too good.

    I drive by a Chik-Fil-A. The revulsion of stuffing that crap in my mouth is what makes me avoid the place, and my disdain was merely confirmed by hearing of their anti-gay policy.

    However, I've never picketed a business/state/church. I think that step is more active than merely avoiding them. I mean, how do they know how I feel? Do they follow me on Facebook for my status update? Boycotting is for pussies.

    Sort of... they always tend to be companies that sell the sort of products that I wouldn't ever buy for any reason in the first place.

    no, never will either.

    Whether its chik-fil-a or another company, if i wanna eat there and im in the mood for it. I will eat there.

    A company will not stop me from what I want in my life. I dont care what their political leansings are, I dont care what their morals are, or religion, I will get a crispy chicken sandwich and waffle fries from there if it convenient and im in the mood. that's it.

    Yes they will. That's the whole point. They donate mega-bucks to anti-gay programs designed to take away your rights, hence stopping you from what you want to do.

    Good to know that a crappy fast food chicken sandwich is more important to you than giving your money to known hatemongers. Classy. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Anyway, I will shy away from the clearest cases, like Chick-Fil-A.
