Yay Gay! Boo Chick-Fil-A!

Be cocky and wear your uniform to pride! But stay out of Chick-Fil-A.

Well, it's a good day to be gay, unless you are craving some Chick-Fil-A.
The U.S. Department of Defense has authorized all service members to wear their uniforms during Pride parades-the San Diego one is this weekend. San Diego LGBT Pride Executive Director Dwayne Crenshaw issued a statement saying "Today is a great day of Pride! San Diego Pride is honored to have the privilege of celebrating our country and our servicemembers with dignity and respect. The fight for equality is not over and it is not easy, but this is a giant leap in the right direction.”
And he is right, the fight for equality continues to be a constant tug of war.
Another nugget in the news this week, the president of Chick-Fil-A, Dan Cathy, cracked the egg of knowledge on our heads that his company was "guilty as charged" in response to a question about whether it opposed the concept of same-sex marriage. The bible thumper also clucked about his poultry enterprise, "We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit."
All fine, feathered friends will show their pride and eat less chickn'.
