The Worldnutdaily posts their annual list of the nation’s “gayest” companies. Actually, it’s just a reprinting of the list from the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. But while the HRC does this to reward companies that value equality, the WND does it to tell its readers which companies to avoid.
And as I wrote long ago, the list is long — though not as long as it was then because HRC changed their criteria and made it more difficult to get a perfect score. So while more than 300 companies once scored a 100 on their scale, now only 109 do. But I fully agree that the bigots should not buy anything from any company that actually treats gay people like human beings.
They should stop using any medications made by Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer. And any medical instrument made by Medtronics. They should probably stop using the internet completely, since Google and Yahoo both get perfect 100s, as did Apple and Microsoft. And the entire internet uses routers made by Cisco, which means all those emails they forward to each other every day about how Obama eats Christian babies for dinner every night are actually catching The Gay as they pass through those routers.
They even have to give up seemingly wholesome things like Disney movies and Avon. They can’t each anything from General Mills, Kellogg’s or Kraft foods, so they’re gonna have to hope for some of that manna. Hell, they can’t even join the military because major defense contractors like Raytheon and Lockheed Martin score a perfect 100 on the sodomy scale.
