    Heard about the 'men pay more' cafe in Melbourne, Australia? Progressives loved it. You know Progressives, dontcha? They're those folk who declare themselves emphatically opposed to all forms of discrimination.

    PS: It closed within two years. No one outside of Melbourne was surprised. It's a special place, Melbourne. It's where we send our misfits, to keep them safely enclosed in their own little bubble of unreality :)

    It's 2019. Who's still against gay marriage?

    Deplorable people.

    never ate there, my guess those that did were looking to meet women, more of a dating place - just a guess

    just like here, it's their choice to eat there, I would not

    so it closed? doesn't sound like society loved it so much then....

    This is why it’s best to treat all equally and by the same rules.
    Doing it any other way just seems messy.

    If it bothers you that much, go order a hamburger from a robot that replaced a teenage worker's first job because you demanded the owner pay him/her/alphabet $15/hr.

    Why is alphabet paying fast food workers?

    Figures they would move into that arena, they control everything else.

    It's interesting to me the time and energy that the left spends on appeasing the LGBTQRSTUV community. DC has the most gay households per capita and that is only 2.3%. I honestly didn't know that New England was so gay.
    VT = 1.14%
    RI = 1.1%
    MA = 0.95%
    ME = 0.88%
    NH = 0.81%

    The only state that really stacks up to that is CA with 0.85%

    A poll taken prior to same sex marriage being legalized and less than ten years after sodomy laws were ruled unconstitutional (aka homosexuality was illegal).

    You are joking, right?

    In 2018 (tad more recent), 8.2% of millennials identified as gay or bisexual.
    83% of millennials oppose discrimination against gay people.
    That’s not a small demographic to ignore.

    waiting to see the 'all boys girl scout troup'...

    every troop leader here says they'll quit, take their girls and make a new private club for themselves... they won't share toilets and showers

    The all boys girl scout troop would never happen.

    The whole stunt was to take out masculinity and a place for boys to learn about becoming men.

    Boys effectively become girls when raised in single parent (mother) households as it is.

    i've seen the opposite here in new york, yeah some become pansies but that can be attributed to 'normalcy', 'par for the course' and have no correlation to a single parent household.
    it might very well be different in other towns/cities, i just don't see that here

    It will lose them a good number of Christian customers. I always stopped at a Chic-fil-A when I go on business to the flatlands....no more.

    So a qualification of where you eat is “must donate to anti-gay organizations”...
    Interesting, what brands does that allow you to patronize?

    You tell me? The Salvation Army isn't an anti-gay organization, they serve everyone. You mean Christian organization don't you? If they are Christian, the meme is they must be anti-gay. The intolerance from the left is astounding. The left doesn't want to find common ground and things we can agree on, yet agree to dis-agree on other viewpoints. Everyone must think their way or those folks are the enemy to be destroyed.

    Remove Religious organizations donating and you lose a massive chunk of responsibly run charities. You can trust those doing it because it’s a calling, over the CEOs of certain other “charitable” organizations making millions.

    Then again look at the end goal. Complete subservience to the state. Leftists want everyone taken care of by bureaucrats. And don’t you dare question their motives or policy or they’ll snatch away your goodies. It’s probably the most vindictive and horrible policy leftists have going. It’s like they ignored the Soviet Union, Cuba and Venezuela. /wall

    Militant LGBTQ people are so much more ruthless and evil than any of the people they’re accusing of being hateful.
