I honestly don't see why this is an issue and I think it's stupid that people are making a big deal.
Some background -
-I honestly forgot it was pride month and don't really care.
-I've also eaten chick-fil-a in the past week. Their spicy chicken sandwich is pretty good.
-I still think Jack Dorsey is an asshole.
Some people have better things to do then play the victim all the time, y'know? Too many lemon bars to bake to give a shit who the twitter CEO promotes or what a sandwich chain CEO thinks the definition of a family unit is.
Not really - I'm not doing a charity by purchasing a chicken sandwich - I'm just exchanging money for goods and services and consciously choosing not to do so isn't going to change his opinion or put his company out of business. Shit was seven years ago - if it was going to bend the needle either way it would have happened by now.
It's not worth the effort anyway - I'm sure that whoever-he-is CEO-guy does alright regardless of how I feel about his opinions, and if anything he probably finds it amusing how angry people got and it probably only strengthen his conviction that he was right. And I have better things to do than keep a checklist of every corporation I'm supposed to hate and boycott because their CEO or executive board doesn't like me.
This ideological battleground stuff is just tiresome at this point. The last few years have been a profound reminder how truly worthless it is to let yourself get angry over things that don't actually amount to anything.
Every choice is of the same moral value as every other choice.
Certainly not. If you're on the path where you're starting to think that this is what everyone who disagrees with you believes this, you might want to be careful about where your headspace is at - you're clearly arguing against someone here, but from what I can tell it isn't me.
I think by leaving it up it's possible more people are aware of the background. However, I also think leaving it up potentially allows a platform for people to spout bigotry - as so often appears to be the case with these types of social media posts.
Because their political stance on this issue is not exactly a secret. It's not a matter of much moral calculus to say 'Nah, I'll get not bigoted chicken instead' and then decide to never eat Chick-fil-A again.
Yeah, I was referencing a person eating a chicken sandwich and then after the fact finding out that the place where he got the sandwich was founded by a bigot and then agreeing that he shouldn’t have eaten there.
This, to me, is not a story worth sharing or propagating.
However, Twitters effed up policy’s should be examined. I see the two as completely separate.
