In economic downturns, anti-gay wrath seems to be the one sure bet

by Jeremy Hooper

The American Family Association officially announced their anti-gay boycott of Pepsico at the beginning of January:

This is how Pepsi's stock looks today:

Wow, good work, AFA! You condemn a company for merely acknowledging gay existences, and America responds by dousing carbonated sugar water on your never-dying anti-gay fires. Response capitalism at its finest!

But that's not all. We hear that in order to drive up the stock even further, Pepsi will add a "y" to their Gatorade line by month's end.

Your thoughts

I've personally been intentionally buying Pepsi products - in spite of the fact I'm not a big fan or Pepsi cola. Love this glimpse at AFA boycotts. I wonder, what about those companies LGBT people are boycotting - similar results?

Unlike jaysays, I love Pepsi and have been quite pleased that they refuse to back down to AFA. It also seems that the company will probably keep on donating to LGBT organizations (knock on wood). I'm glad to know Pepsi is doing well.
