Did Microsoft p*ssy out?

by Jeremy Hooper

  The Stranger newspaper in Seattle is reporting that the Microsoft Corporation has quietly withdrawn support for an anti-gay-discrimination bill, after being pressured by local pastor Ken Hutcherson (pic.).

   According to reports from a Microsoft employee, Hutcherson threatened to organize a national boycott of Microsoft products, unless the company cowered to the evangelical's anti-gay wishes. Despite the fact that the company pretty much controls the free world, they seem to have submitted to Hutcherson's demands and have now changed to a "neutral" stance on the 'mo-friendly bill.

Disheartening.

Feeling emboldened by his bigoted triumph, we're hearing that Hutcherson has now demanded that Microsoft head honcho Bill Gates change his name to the more "pro-family" friendly moniker, Bill Ex-Gaytes.

Bullies.

Ya know, Macs are both pretty and powerful...
