Insight of a 14 year-old girl
Imagine this scene of a homophobe during the Chick-fil-A controversy. This homophobe (we'll call him Bob) hops onto Facebook where he reads a post about Chick-fil-A's stance on gay marriage. He immediately becomes interested, so he goes onto Google. After Bob reads some comments about people who are going to boycott Chick-fil-A, he reads about Chick-fil-A appreciation day. He makes the decision to participate. The next day, his iPhone wakes him up at 8 a.m. He puts on his Nike shoes along with his Levi's jeans and a shirt from American Apparel. After waking his family up to go with him, he hops in his Ford Focus and drives off.
The place is crowded. He waits for about thirty minutes, but once he's at the counter, he orders five chicken sandwiches, three cookies and cream milkshakes for his kids, and two Coca-Colas for him and his wife. Satisfied with his purchase, Bob asks a kind stranger to snap a picture of his family holding their Chick-fil-A items with his new Sony camera. Bob then leaves for home with his family. Later that day, Bob logs onto his new computer which is updated with the latest version of Microsoft. He uploads the photo from Chick-fil-A and types in the description for the photo, "Standing up for traditional marriage like every good American citizen should."
Bob then leans back while taking a sip from his Starbuck's coffee while reflecting on his day. He is proud to stand up against gay rights, and sincerely believes that he has done good for the traditional marriage cause.
(Little does Bob know...)
He has actually supported several companies that support gay rights while trying to show his support against them. Apple, Facebook, Google, Coca-Cola, Ford, Nike, Starbuck's, Levi's, American Apparel, Microsoft, Nabisco, and Sony all support gay rights. Not to mention that Bob probably would have never found out about Chick-fil-A appreciation day if it wasn't for Alan Turing, a well-known scientist that was very influential in the field of computer science, who was...
(Wait for it.)
... a homosexual.
