So Mcdonald's is going to release gay theme fries. Coming soon! Your fries will come in a cool rainbow colored box in order of gay pride month!

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.

Yes, it is totally rational to boycott a fast food chain due to the color of the box the fries come in .


I can't believe how much some people hate gay people, it is like a form of mental illness.

Remember when the left boycotted Chick-fil-A? Was that a form of mental illness?

I'm Christian also, but this doesn't bother me.

Why are you so triggered by this?

I went to Target the other day and they have a Pride clothing section for June.

I wasn't like "OH MAH GAWDDD!!!!!!", I was just like...k.
