Go To Starbucks Tomorrow! Important!
I never thought I'd say that--I detest overpriced lattes consumed by slacking hipsters--but the pro-Starbucks day planned for tomorrow is intended as a show of support for a chain store that's backed same-sex marital rights.
Gay activists have cooked this up as a counter assault on the Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day, which brought out swarms of rabid conservatives hiding behind their "patriotism" and "freedom of speech" as they loudly endorsed the right of an establishment to back anti-gay rhetoric.
Tomorrow, we will all be swallowing our pride--and our mocha choca lata yayas--and it might be gross, but not as gross as the shit at Chick-Fil-A.
Besides, we'll be toasting to equality and all the trimmings, so cheers.
