We all know about Gilette's commercial, and how their razors are great for transgendered women. I've got another one:

MACY's. I was shopping there, and their cause of the week is the gay community apparently. Literally every 10 minutes, a recording came on the PA system about donating to the LBGTQR community. (I find these constant PA announcements annoying anyway.....like "attention Kmart shoppers.") Then, at checkout, I was asked if I would like to donate to help gay people.

And it's not just MACYs.If I have four errands to run, I will have been asked to donate to a special cause four times. Five errands, five times. It's a very annoying pattern that seems to be the Modus Operandi these days, and I wish it would stop. I give generously to charities of my own choosing and don't like being badgered for money at every turn.

I also wonder if these stores deduct the money they collect as a charitable deduction off their profits. Anyone know?

I have seen several companies actually using a rainbow colored logo this month. It's pathetic.

Gay people get special treatment for some very bizarre reason, like they are the Left's pet dogs or something. Ooh ooh look at my cute dog, give him a treat.

I guess I got lucky. I ran into Macy's real quick last week to buy some cologne. I didn't see anything like that in there. The store was pretty much dead in an otherwise thriving mall though.

Check out United Mileage Plus unique experiences.
A drag queen show and march with United Airlines at a gay pride parade. Does not bother me excepting that all the political events are left of center.

But it doesn't bother you when corporations take on the right social issues (birth control being denied through their health care, donating funds to anti-LGBTQ activisits, etc.)?

I'm just fed up with being panhandled at retail transactions.

So don’t shop there anymore? This is what happens when millennials get promoted ahead of their time. I think this is a phase that will soon pass. After all, what large, everyday companies that embraced gayness and transgenderism went on to be a more successful business? I can’t think of one that didn’t face backlash.

Adding Disney to my list of boycotted companies. Advocating for killing babies? Seriously.

Well if the method of providing information is mostly left leaning... it would be bad business to be on the other side of the equation.

I've never had a corporation ask me for money at check-out to prevent birth control or fight against gays or any other righty issues.

(And nobody is trying to deny anybody birth control. I just shouldn't have to pay for your rubbers.)
