conscienti1984 saidWTF guys! That didn't sound homophobic at all:
i used "homophobic" to get all ya'll's attention.
from the statement i wouldn't call him exactly
homophobic, but clearly he has made a judgment in his mind about it.
the mcDs ad in france was about showing that anyone could be gay (not "typical" as defined by common misperceptions) and that at mcDs you could "be yourself." simple, warm and fuzzy message. not militant or even the slightest bit offensive. the kid was cute and there he was with his dad having dinner together. aw shucks, family values that the most stalwart baptist could sign on to.
so, no, he may not be psychotically anti-gay, but he is anti-gay and he used his professional position at mcDs as a political bully pulpit. shameless and at very least unprofessional...ESPECIALLY in light of the fact that mcDs official policy is friendly toward gays.
had this been chik-fil-a it would have been entirely different. i expect this kind of "official" policy from those guys....but not from internationally progressive mcDs. i mean really, do they need the baptists that much in this country?
