Skip The Secret Sauce

That mistreated, discriminated and misunderstood segment of society, the one that is totally under reported and ignored by the Hollywood crowd, is getting it’s own Whopper from Burger King, I suspect it will come with fabulous fries;

Burger King has concocted yet another way to have it your way: a gay pride burger.

The Proud Whopper, as it’s called, comes wrapped in a rainbow colored wrapper with this inscription: “We are all the same inside.” It will be sold through Thursday at one Burger King restaurant on San Francisco’s Market Street, that was at the heart of the route for last weekend’s 44th annual San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade.

Since Commerce is my middle name (maybe it’s profits, I forget) I am all for anything that will feed the bottom line. Although if they are smart they will charge double for this “mouthful”, making a political statement should cost you, and gays can afford it, look at how they dress.

I suspect that the sandwich will come pre assembled, so you can insert the meat between the two buns yourself. My mind is all a flutter over the possibilities for straw variants, some could come uncircumcised.

“We are all the same inside”,ummm, some of us have less semen in our butt holes than others, but I guess they are right.

Yes, we can have a little good natured fun with this, but what isn’t so funny is that some companies are threatening their employees with some very classic group think, a little political intimidation to motivate the workers to beliefs more in line with their viewpoint;

A second source has confirmed that JP Morgan Chase has asked each of its employees whether they are “an ally of the LGBT community,” which employees have taken as a veiled threat.
Each year JP Morgan Chase sends its employees a survey asking questions related to management and other non-controversial issues. A longtime Chase employee told Professor Robert George of Princeton that the survey this year included the following questions for the first time:
Are you:
1) A person with disabilities;
2) A person with children with disabilities;
3) A person with a spouse/domestic partner with disabilities;
4) A member of the LGBT community.
5) An ally of the LGBT community, but not personally identifying as LGBT.

Diversity of thought will not be tolerated if it deviates from our ideology.

    I’m going to guess that more than likely there was an option “6) None of the Above” in the survey. I too work for a large bank (at least by Canadian standards), and they push diversity as well. We have these types of surveys and they allow you to opt out of being identified.

    It’s actually a requirement for all managers to take a diversity course. I was very skeptical of this. We were allowed to have some frank discussions in the course, and did some case studies. And in fairness, when they say “diverse”, they actually mean diverse (i.e. opposing views were both accepted). I’m fine with that. Mind you having a diversity course is a little creepy for me.

    I don’t know what ,”An ally of the LGBT community” even means. Since I think Iran’s treatment of gays (hanging them) is a bit harsh, in that respect I guess I am an ally, whoppie. I have always abided by the simple notion that the less my employer knows about me, the better. I get that if I am a drug addict, a thief, have hygiene issues, or a compulsive masturbator in public, my boss would want to know that. And I understand diversity training (that, and sexual harassment training, snore), but as long as I do my job well and treat everyone in the workplace with respect, my political or social proclivities should be off limits and private.
