Tomorrow is GLBT "public display" day at Chick-fil-a


In response to Cathy's remarks -- and the fact Chick-Fil-A has donated millions to organizations that fight gay rights -- the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is organizing a same-sex kiss-in to be held at Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country Friday. I'm not sure if Rahm and the others are free that day, but unlike their talk of banning the franchise, their participation in the lip lock is totally legal.

1. If you believe Facebook

It is being started at Chik Fil A's headquarters in Atlanta. I read that CNN is going to be filming there. Is enough of the word out for demonstrations across the country (Friday)? I don't know.

2. I wonder how many arrests there'll be for PDA . . .

And you're not laughing because you know there will be.

3. The S.O. has to work tomorrow, but I'm willing to take one for the team...

 

and suck face with whatever cute guys who might show up.

That's how I roll. He'll understand - it's political. I'll be demonstrating all day and night.

How many RFID key cards can you get from the front desk at one time?

1. Don't make an ass out of yourself. Be classy, else you dilute the message. Leave the ego at home and put on your game face. This isn't about you personally, it's about equality for everyone.

2. Be respectful, but get your point across. Even when people agree with your message, if you offend their sensibilities they will not stand with you. Be respectful.

3. Remember, individual employees are not the ones being protested, be friendly! : )

4. Obey all commands from law enforcement if confronted. If possible, make sure all LEO contact is documented on video/audio recording. Remember you are on private property, if you are asked to leave by whoever is in charge of the premises: you have to go. Else, you will be charged with criminal trespassing.

5. If someone makes bigoted comments to you, do not give in to their efforts. They want you to react negatively so they can show others how "bad" you are. They're trolling you. Don't react, smile and go about your business.
