Chick-fil-a-o-phobia

Phobia: A persistent, abnormal, and irrational fear of a specific thing or situation that compels one to avoid it, despite the awareness and reassurance that it is not dangerous.
I think that pretty well sums up the hysterical over-reaction of liberal students at the University of New Mexico who tried their best to get Chick-fil-A kicked off campus because they claimed the eatery made them feel "unsafe."’  The hysteria included ‘crying and hyperventilating, before a vote was held on whether the restaurant could stay or not’, as well as:
Gay students claimed that they even felt threatened by the mere sight of students and faculty carrying bags with the Chick-fil-A logo on them.
That’s right, folks – a white paper bag with this on it…

… is threatening.

Want to see something that ought to be considered a real threat to homosexuals?  Here:


Are these little Albert Goldmans even aware of the original significance of the Pink Triangle?  Probably not, since it’s been co-opted into ‘an international symbol of gay pride and the gay rights movement, and is second in popularity only to the rainbow flag’ – they likely don’t realize it was used by the Nazi’s to tag homosexuals for the concentration and death camps, and therefore was a lot more terrifying than a fast-food-chain logo.

Here’s a suggestion: instead of being like Albert Goldman, folks, you ought to try being more like Armand.  Maybe then we could take you seriously.
