If you really take issue with them using different colored ink on the box their fries come in, just don't go. I'd say grow up, too, but it's probably not worth it.

The rest of us will carry on with our lives.


I have a better solution for the OP: purchase stock in McDonalds, then you may attend the annual shareholder's meeting and voice your concerns. One share will do (it is now $151 per share).

First of all, if I was an investor in McDonalds, I would be pissed. Mcdonalds could be looking at some boycotts over their rainbow fries. Why do these companies feel the need to have a position on social issues? You make fast food. No one wants to go to Mcdonalds to hear or see a message about gay pride. They just want the food that they are used to. Such a move serves no benefit business wise as people like Christians may choose to no longer do business there. It just shows there is a liberal agenda at play here even at the cost of making money.

I don't want to go to Mcdonalds and see some barrier that says, "check out our gay fries in fun rainbow colors because being gay is fun and cool!" Of course, they will say they are only showing support for the gay community, but I see it as marking a specific message especially to kids.

Most Christians including myself don't care how someone wants to live their life as long as they are not causing harm to others. But these marketing ploy is just another growing instance of the LGBT community forcing a pro-gay message onto the public. Just give me fries.
So what about christians who want to force their views on everyone and try to pass laws that do harm to other individuals that don't follow Christian values? How hypocritical!

If you don't like something dont give them your business.

First of all, "the left" did not boycott Chic-fil-A. Some people did. I know Democrats who like Chic-fil-a. I personally think it's a little overpriced. Tastes fine but unless someone else is buying, it's not worth it as far as I'm concerned.

That said, using different colored ink and donating to organizations whom many felt was a threat to LGBT rights. Rather or not you support the boycott, becasue I don't give a ****, but they really aren't the same. Unless McDonalds is donating, which they might, but I don't know.

Corporate pandering to appeal to a rising demographic. It's transparent and unctuous. But my solution is simple: I have no interest in buying these fries, so I won't. End of story.

This is easy for me, though, since I haven't stepped foot in a McDonald's since the early 90s and have fast food only once or twice per year at most.
-------------------------------
It's none of my business who somebody else hangs out with or loves, or what people do in their bedrooms. Tolerance doesn't equal nurturance, however.

Why do some want to promote their sexual preference? Meanwhile crying "stay out of our bedrooms"... mixed up folks.

McDonald's getting in on the Pink Dollar? Shocking!

I am surprised gay people don't think corporate America using them as a marketing ploy is gimmicky.
