…and Chick Fil-A provides that space for them too!
Oh, Okay: College Students
Chick-fil-A Would Make
Students at Duquesne University, a Catholic school in Pittsburgh, are raising concerns that an on-campus location of the fast food chain Chick-fil-A could somehow make things “unsafe” for LGBT students of the university. Student government representatives argued that the presence of the Chick-fil-A as a dining option would “marginalize” students and could make them feel as though the food court is no longer a “safe place.”
From Campus Reform:
“Chick-fil-A has a questionable history on civil rights and human rights,” Martini remarked in a statement to The Duquesne Duke. “I think it’s imperative [that] the university chooses to do business with organizations that coincide with the [university’s] mission and expectations they give students regarding diversity and inclusion.”
“I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ community. So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A being in Options [an on-campus food court] that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk,” Rachel Coury explained, adding that at the very least her organization would like “someone” to “make a statement” on the issue.
“It would be a really big deal for Lambda [Gay-Straight Alliance] and the whole LGBTQ community on campus if someone could make a statement to eliminate the fear of being marginalized by having this business on campus,” she said.
Chick-fil-A has locations on nearly 250 college campuses throughout the country, never mind its near-ubiquitous presence at airports and other public locations. As far as I’m aware, there have not been any anti-gay assaults or crimes at any of these locations (unless one considers the inevitable heart disease triggered by frequent consumption of Chick-fil-A’s fried products to be a slow-moving assault). The company no longer donates to controversial causes. If students at other campuses are able to both enjoy Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries and support their LGBT friends, there’s no reason why Duquesne students can’t either. This whole thing is insane.
Straight people desire safe spaces also; poufers aren’t a special class far from it. It is this disgusting idea that I and millions of others have to accommodate having to eat breakfast while having the stomach to watch some individual who did God know what with his mouth last night eat tapioca pudding or eat bananas.
All this is so crazy since all had a safe space, one very safe: the closet.
This POLITICALLY CORRECT nonsense that certain people are entitles to special treatment because they claim some load of Communist/Marxist crap. That is all that it is!
All it takes to clean up this absurdity is to treat it as rebarbative tripe. Cut the Federal funding to the College Education Fund except for hard science, Western Civics and Friedman Economics. Get rid of the grants and courses that deal in bombast and balderdash. Let those Professors find honest work driving taxis or slinging hash in diners.

One might ask Governor Scott just what oath he took when he was sworn into office. It seems to us here at Loon Watch, that oaths taken by public officials usually contain such words as uphold the law, follow the Constitution and other niceties like not breach the public trust and not commit misdemeanors.
We haven’t found any wording allowing for upholding only those laws found in favor. Strange that the people writing the Constitutions both State(s) and US didn’t put in that wording. Guess they weren’t Progressives.
From Vermont Watchdog:
Speaking at a press conference Thursday, Republican Gov. Phil Scott said he would consider deporting some criminal aliens residing in Vermont illegally.
The statement represents a modest change in the governor’s approach to illegal immigration, which has been at odds with the Trump administration’s policy and executive orders.
HERE is the full posting from:
More excerpts from the article follow:
On March 28, Scott signed into law S.79 , a bill crafted to shield illegal immigrants from “compulsory collection of personally identifying information, or dissemination of that information for purposes of establishing a mandatory federal registry or database.”
Immigration experts have told Watchdog that concealing data about illegal immigrants could cause Vermont to lose federal dollars it receives to support a variety of programs, including law enforcement. [snip]
Vermont Watchdog has reported that among the characteristics the state wants hidden from federal immigration enforcement officers are immigration status, national origin, religion, race and color. But, following Scott’s statement on Thursday, it is uncertain how deportation in Vermont can occur without some state officials revealing the status of criminal immigrants in contradiction to the spirit of S.79.
