If the gays get cake, it's over folks.
It's days like this when I almost want to go Stephen Colbert on an article and pretend to support something absolutely ridiculous and make an equally ridiculous extremist case for my alleged view. To be entirely frank, I could do it with both sides in this case. I am speaking, of course, of the Indiana law which, amongst other things, has brought back the unfortunate saying that historically never was "Let them eat cake". The gays, of course. Because people are trying to keep the gays from eating cake? Well, not exactly. Because the gays are trying to turn bakers gay? No, not that either. The problem? We have businesses that want to act like 6 year olds and unfortunately, the gays are 5 1/2.
Yes. It is a cult. And I joined.
Up until yesterday, I had never in my life had a Chick-Fil-A. Yes, I know. Shocking, right? No, I haven't been a part of some type of gay rights boycott... or girlcott for that matter. I just haven't ever gone to a Chick-Fil-A. I have had people tell me how good they are, and express shock that I have never had one. I have repeatedly made notes to myself that I need to stop by and have a sandwich, but it just hadn't happened until yesterday. I stopped at the Pilot in Russelville Arkansas and went to the shopping plaza across the street, and there it was. So I went in to see what I had been missing all of these years.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
There is no better example of how the left can hijack a language than the word gay. This word, which now carries a far different meaning than it's original usage implied, is a case study in understanding how the act of redefining a word can play out. The grammatical manipulation of this word has been executed to such a flawless degree that many homosexuals would likely be offended if they understood what they were actually saying about themselves when they take on the name. Recent ad campaigns against usage of the word in other ways show the disingenuousness of the LGBT community as well. It is for this reason that I decided to include this word in our liberal lexicon. It doesn't really fit in otherwise, as you either know the liberal meaning of the word or you live under a rock.
