Apparently fast food chains can now violate students’ safe spaces.
A group of students at Duquesne University are protesting the presence of Chick Fil A on their campus because they claim that it violates the LGBT community sense of inclusion and safety.
The Lambda Gay Straight Alliance at the university has vocally protested the presence of Chick Fil A on the Catholic campus.
The president of the student organization released the following statement:
“I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ+ community. So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A being in Options that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk.”
The critics on Duquesne’s campus cite Chick Fil A’s CEO’s traditional stance on marriage — which has caused controversy in the past.
A Student Government member and Lambda club executive stated at an SGA meeting:
“I think it’s imperative the university chooses to do business with organizations that coincide with the [university’s] mission and expectations they give students regarding diversity and inclusion.”
What liberal college students don’t understand is that they are suggesting a fascist way of thinking. Simply because a company’s executives do not ideologically align with a small sect of the student body does not implore the university to completely divest business with them.
If that were the case, no college campus should do business with Starbucks because the CEO’s progressive viewpoints oppose the viewpoints of some members of the student body — and who can live without Starbs?
