No, you calm down little....tanker...
This conversation wasn't about the shirt per se, but about the company it represented. And I have a feeling the OP was a tad bias. It wasn't him talking with the stranger, but TO to the stranger.
Once again, I'm sure the guy meant no harm in wearing the shirt besides showing his support to delicious chicken. Whether or not he hates gays nobody can tell just by wearing a t-shirt like that.
And I have a feeling most people are jumping on the No H8 bandwagon not to show their support of marriage equality, but to get a cute picture to put on their Facebook. Much more could be accomplished if people actually organized and rallied around getting shit done. Taking pretty pictures is only preaching to the choir. The less glamourous work is mostly ignored.
Ever heard the saying, "You can get 500 people to show up to a party, but can't even get 5 people to help organize it"???
I'm seeing this weird pattern.
In one hand your saying that this guy wearing a tshirt that advertises a brand of fast food and has owners and supporters who support hate and degradation of others was probably very innocent and wearing that tshirt unintentionally without any understanding of whats been going on.
YET, you get all pissed off about these people who are joining an idea to symbolise that bullying others is wrong and start calling them "fad followers" and that they really don't understand anything and are only doing it for "cute photos"
Bit of a fucking double standard don't you think? going around making all these assumptions like your somehow right.
The guy was wearing a tshirt with a brand that encourages hate. simple as that. It's out in the open, the company owner/s can't deny it, they've come out public about it. It's been all over the news (including Australian news) If that guy didn't know what that brand symbolised to a lot of people I would seriously die of shock at how blind and stupid Americans can be! (Although they elected bush.. so.. bit of a difficult position to put my self in there)
with the No H8.. wow, some people try to do the right thing and you start falling it a fad.. You sound like one of those people who hate everything thats popular and go for what isn't purely so you can appear "different" I mean come on, who gives a shit if a few people do take a "cute photo for facebook" ya know what, it gets the message out there because others are going to see it, others are going to question it and it's a far better message to have a message about not hating people then it is to have a message out there about hating people because they aren't like you.
And I'm not even upset. Have you seen the way I talk to some numbnuts on here? This is as calm as I get, I didn't even call the OP a name. Though I bet he is SOOOOO much fun to have around at parties....
You need to simmer down....
noo.. can't say that I've seen much of your posts.
