Staying Ford tough: 95% of shareholders reject anti-gay proposal

by Jeremy Hooper

   At its annual shareholders meeting in Dearborn, the Ford Motor Company overwhelmingly voted against a proposal requesting the company drop sexual orientation protection from its non-discrimination policy.

In a related story, today the person with whom your humble scribe shares a toothbrush holder asked me, "Baby, do you like bull sh*t?" to which I overwhelmingly replied, "Ugh, no! Especially when people throw it around in an attempt to stink up companies, states, or society in general. So many people are tossing various forms of bull poop at gays and progressives these days, and I'm frankly sick of it. So to make a long story short, baby -- I deeply despise bull caca."

Today's vote comes at a time when "pro-family" groups are throwing bull dung at Ford whenever they so much as say the word "gay." That being the case, we'd like to thank Ford for continuing to try and cover the stench with air freshener.

*UPDATE: Don Wildmon of the American Family Association (the group who has initiated a boycott against Ford) is calling the vote a victory:

"The mere fact that five percent voted for this proposal came as a shock. I think it sends a loud message," says the AFA leader. "And we're very grateful that we got that five percent and that this issue can come back up again next year. We have a lot of time to work on it."

And we have a lot of time to expose the true nature of your antipathy. Discrimination -- never has it won out in the end.
