stop falling for corporations’ exploitation of the queer rights movement….burger king isn’t wrapping burgers in rainbow paper to show support for us they’re doing it to make money. don’t let our movement turn into another part of capitalism
Ok, wait. With all due respect, I don’t fully agree with this demonization of these corporations’ support of queer rights. First of all, Burger King is donating sales of their “Pride Whopper” to the McLamore Foundation for LGBT scholarships. Sure, BK wants to increase profits (as does any business) but that means an x amount of dollars that the Family Equality Council didn’t have before. OH yeah, did I mention that they are donating ALL proceeds from the sale of this burger?
Also, the wrapping for the whopper says “We are all the same inside,” which I think is a good visual point for those who may not be all for queer rights.
And seriously, at least these corporations aren’t going the Chick Fil A route. I’m sorry, but I’ll accept any kind of support, even if it is the company just trying to buff their profits.
