Activism

I’m not gay, but I do support many of the things that gay activists are striving for, such as equality under the law. This is one of those things. It was posted to a list I’m on, and I’m reposting it here.

“If you, reading this, are so inclined to make one phone call, you will nullify a phone call from an anti-gay nutjob. Oh, excuse me, an anti-gay crusader. Kraft Foods is a major sponsor of the 2006 Gay Games. The nutjobs/crusaders have targeted them and are flooding their phone bank. Want to do something about that? Here’s their phone # 1-800-323-0768. Toll free. It only takes a couple of minutes to call them and voice your support for their sponsorship. One call to nullify. Please pass the word to your friends, email addy book, relatives, whomever.

Latest word this morning is that the Kraft phone folks are initially wary when told the call is about their sponsorship, then immensely relieved upon hearing the support, and are still asking people to spread the word because the nutjobs are winning. This entire thing is ridiculous on some level, but it’s what we’re all reduced to.”

Edit: I just called and the young lady I spoke to was *thrilled* to hear from someone supporting it. SHe was amazingly sweet and all but begged my permission to forward my comments on to the marketing/advertising department.

Please seriously consider calling and making a difference.
