A friend wrote to me by email yesterday:
[So-and-so] was walking across campus the other day after CFA announced their cowardice publicly, spicy chicken sandwich in his hand, and someone shouted, “Does the homophobia in your sandwich taste good.”
Note that this is after the announcement of their change. Thinking of @FaithAlone’s comment about sharks, I replied:
I don’t know what they were thinking by caving. Did they really expect it to get them goodwill? Like a swimmer cutting off a bit of his arm as a goodwill gesture to the circling sharks.
And I think that’s a lot more like it. They’ve brought the public’s attention back to themselves, by hurting themselves. Still so saddened by this.
