In a blog post yesterday Jon Keller from CBS News insinuates that there is merit in boycotting lobster because same sex marriage got defeated in Maine.
Hey Dopey- do you realize that there are lobster industries in other states than Maine you fucking idiot! States like Massachusetts. Having nothing to do with gay rights or same sex marriages which I support BTW, why the hell would you punish the men and women that have no stake in the battle- lobstermen?
You can read the idiotic premise here-
Posted by Jon_Keller cbs news-
After last night’s defeat in Maine, same-sex marriage is 0-for-31 when it’s gone before voters.
Some gay-marriage supporters are talking about a lobster boycott in response, and I think there may be some merit to the notion of moving away from civil rights arguments which (however well-founded) open the door to pushback from anti-marriage forces who contend their rights are threatened by legalization, and instead emphasizing the economic clout of gay consumers and their sympathizers. Don’t forget, Rosa Parks was part of a boycott of the local bus company that succeeded where protest marches had not.
So I ask you: would you honor a lobster boycott in protest over the Maine vote? And would you advocate a tactical change to economic pressure by the gay-marriage movement?
