YSU Snowflakes Outraged: Late-Night Chicken Is Homophobic

Authored by Mitchell Gunter via CampusReform.org,

A petition is demanding that Youngstown State University the Chick-fil-A on campus, saying access to late-night chicken “adds to the negative experience of LGBT students.”

Noting that the Chick-fil-A is “the only place to get food in the evenings,” the Change.org petition complains that while the restaurant chain has apologized for “statements by its founders regarding members of the LGBT community,” the business “is still donating money to anti-LGBT organizations.”

“Youngstown State has a very low campus pride rating as it is,” the petition notes, observing that Youngstown State has a three star rating.

The Campus Pride Index (CPI), a metric that purports to rate LGBTQ campus life, describes itself on its website as “a vital tool for assisting campuses in learning ways to improve their LGBTQ campus life and ultimately shape the educational experience to be more inclusive, welcoming and respectful of LGBTQ and ally people.”

According to the petition, the university offers “little [sic] accommodations for transgender students when it comes to getting their names changed in the system or living in appropriate dorms, and the only LGBT group on campus gets almost no visibility.”

Worse still, from the petitioner’s perspective, is the fact that administrators have in the past “allowed anti-LGBT speakers on campus and did nothing about it when students complained,” though the petition does not specify what the school should have done to mollify its LGBT community in those cases.

“The fact that the only restaurant they have open during the evenings is a notoriously anti-LGBT restaurant only adds to the negative experience of LGBT students on campus,” the petition concludes.


“Obviously, replacing Chick-fil-A would not change the company’s views or anything, but it would be an act of solidarity for the campus's LGBT students.”

Emmett Ray, the petition’s author, explained that the anti-LGBT speakers referenced in the petition were “preachers with big signs condemning LGBT people,” and that he wished the university would “actually have security kick them out when people report them.”

Ray told Campus Reform that he wants Chick-Fil-A to be replaced “because Chick-fil-A is notoriously run by homophobes,” adding, “my goal with the petition was more to start a discussion than actually get Chick-fil-A closed.”

Several individuals voiced their support in comments, including at least one faculty member.

“Time for these people grow up and accept what is and move forward living life and stop hating and spread more love,” one said, while another asserted that, “The choice of Chick-fil-a by Pres. Tressel to come to YSU with Chartwells is symbolic of a culture of indifference towards minority communities.”

Heather Lorimer, an Associate Professor in Genetics at YSU, voiced her support, as well.

“I am a professor at YSU. I have not set foot up there since they became Chick-fil-A,” Lorimer stated, lamenting that, “A long time ago it used to be a respectable place where you could take an invited speaker out to lunch and even have table service. We now have no such place and I will not support Fried Food for Homophobes, which is what I think of Chick-fil-A.”


“Chick-fil-a is well known for its CEO's bigotry,” Professor Lorimer told Campus Reform, reiterating that “Since it has been Chick-fil-A I have not set a foot in it.”

Other professed students mocked the petition via Twitter.

One user scoffed that the “YSU Chick-fil-A petition has to be the worst thing I've ever read,” while another tweeted, “So there's a petition rn to get rid the chic-fil-a on ysu campus bc the owners dont like gay people. They just want to ruin it for everyone.”

“Im gonna start a petition to close every Whole Foods if i lose the YSU Chick-fil-a,” a third user declared.

“You might be woke,” YSU alum Chelsea Marrie  mockingly tweeted, “but are you ‘having a chick fil a on campus is literally homophobic so I’m starting a petition to remove it,’ woke?”

UPDATE: A spokesperson for YSU provided a statement to Campus Reform indicating that the school has no plans to remove Chick-fil-A, but is willing to engage in a dialogue on the issue.

"The Chick-fil-A brand is pervasive on college and university campuses throughout the nation and is an extremely popular choice for our students at YSU, as well," the statement began, adding, "As part of the YSU Culture of Community initiative, the university recently formed a new Inclusion and Awareness Committee to help us better appreciate our diversity and to help us work together to overcome and prevent societal divisions. We invite those with concerns about Chick-fil-A to join in Committee discussions and participate in efforts to promote and nurture respect and to develop a campus community where everyone feels safe and secure."

"Close YSU's Chik Fil A and replace it with SOMEWHERE less homophobic."

I'll go out on a limb and guess this miffed academician is a 'person of color.'

Yeah, late night Chick Fil-a is homophobic.

Instead, all students shoudl receive free Fruit Loops in the evenings.

They plan to open a Burger Fairy® franchise next to it. Not in the mood for chicken? Prance on over to Burger Fairy® for a Flamer, their famous charcoal-broiled burger. This week's lunch special is a GBLT with cheese...

Heather Lorimer associate professor of genetics at YSU voiced her support of petition to remove CFA known for its CEO's bigotry. POC and others of interest come together to oppose bigotry wherever found. Non-binarys in Sweden have found a balance.


have to come on board with the 21st cent!

Fragile millenials can't handle capitalism? Omg.


"I can't act like my body's hormones are telling me ... I need to bag on Chick fil-a!"


Fuck I hate the restaurant, but pussies are being pussies.

They have Fruit Loops for professors ....

Chick fil a doesn't like nogs much either, which is interesting for a fried chicken restaurant.  I don't have one in my town (a Chick fil a) but I seek them out whenever I travel.  The chicken is great and the company has great moral values.

and alot of hot 20 year old chicks.in those tight gray pants.

i guess they haven't been re-educated yet

not to work for such an evil company

Lol.... you think? It's CHICKEN. Must be a dilemma for him, then....like "free ham" for a Jew....

Instead of Chik-Fil-A the fags should eat a bag of dicks

Maltese Beagle's picture

You can get a bag of Dicks (tm) in Seattle. They have an excellent scholarship program too. Go to college while you make burgers; get major assistance.

Squid Viscous's picture

at least they're closed on Sundays so the perverts can have a smelly ass fisting orgy

in the parking lot, maybe even some felching

totenkopf88's picture

Hobby Lobby is another business the fairies have a stick up their ass for(pun intended)

Captain Benny's picture

If I sell fries as "dicks" ... I bet I can appeal to the gender confused.  Maybe the jumbo taters be called cocks.


Stuff the cocks with cream and burn the shit out of them till they're black and we'll call them Mandingo!  They'll taste like shit but Trannys dont care.  I've never met a tranny with a real pallette for good tasting food.

Everywhere I go I see lines at Chick-fil-A. Just one subtle way the citizens are telling the elites that we do not back the Gaystapo - including the tolerant folks.

If people supported the sexual degenerate agenda they would boycott chik-fil-a and it would go out of business. The fact that it is thriving is proof that most real Americans don't support the sexual degenerate agenda.

personally, i hate CFA.  greasy processed chicken floor sweepings.  ugh.  run by bible thumpers.  double-ugh.

nevertheless, if i visit that campus, i will be sure to go in and buy a yuuuuuge box of the shit.  (perhaps i can find a dog to feed it to.)


NoDebt's picture

It's a whole fucking chicken breast, AC.  Other than the fact that those chickens are juiced to the moon with steroids and antibiotics and fried in GMO tofu, there's not much they can do to alter the product.  If you want floor sweepings-chicken you need to check out McDonalds chicken McNuggets.

It's not only thriving, it is, in fact, the most proftiable chain and expanding like crazy.


How deplorable!

They used to call Youngstown State  U.C.L.A. ......... University Corner of Lincoln Avenue.

It was good to take calculus there during high school.

I thought chicken was racist?  They don't call this cultural Marxism for nothing and it's lethal.  People who are stuck in inelastic thinking and lack of imagination think that Marxism never changed due to necessity.  They think of the slightly modification that Lenin and Stalin made to Marxism but the reality is that Marxist socialism was discredited in the past due to it being such a catastrophic failure in every country that it touched and of course they had to shine up the turd.

It's continued to be modified all along.  Now instead of pitting the worker against the Bourgeosie they are pitting the downtrodden "minorities" and "progressives" against what's left of our culture and economic backbone, to accrue power for the third party who are Bolsheviks.  Once our ability to create jobs and a middle class is gone it wont just come back.  Socialists don't create these things they just redistribute until it's gone. They just rebranded themselves and the morons are swallowing the hook because they can't see that it's the same old thing that's been pathetically rebranded.

The Bolsheviks are here.

Chick-fil-A should post a sign on their stores:  "Made exclusively with BLACK-feathered chickens!"


Refuse-Resist's picture

I say offer every one two choices: Exile/deporation or free helicopter rides.

formadesika3's picture

as allies of LGBTQ why not? not harmful to anyone to resist. give an inch... CPI metric on YSU deplorable... "little [sic] accomodations for transgender students when it comes to getting their names changed in the system or living in appropriate dorms, and the only LGBT group on campus gets almost no visibility."

completely understandable , only circulating a petition to start a discussion... Heather Lorimer assoc professor in Genetics at YSU, know of her not personally laments that used to be a respectable place where you could get sit-down service not supporting fried food for homophobes

that's what she thinks of Chik-Fil-A, hasn't set foot in it since

YSU could do better, maybe  a petition rally allies bhind a move to replace unwoke on this campus of hatred for LGBTQ?


Are you a ysu student/graduate? Me thinks so. Your literary skills are whats deplorable. All three or four of your posts have been babbling bullshit that makes no sense whatsoever. So bad that i cant even tell if youre for or against it. Im leanning towards peter puffer (against) .

I used to work there. All of the chicken is actual chicken breast, and the oil for the chicken is peanut oil. I can't say anything about where the chicken breast came from, and I've been told the flour had MSG in it.

However, most everything but the buns and "ice dream" (typical frozen yogurt) are made by hand. The lemonade and tea in particular - it's a job to cut up two cases of lemons and juice them all for a day's lemonade.

I can't speak for all restaurants but cleanliness was a priority in the back. Everyone else I knew who worked fast food has horror stories, but I really only have good things to say about how our manager ran the kitchen.

totenkopf88's picture

A friend of my dad's is a county health inspector- he says the cleanliness of a fast-food place or restaurant is usually directly correlated to what part of town it's in- if you catch my drift. I sent an email to McD's corporate that our local one was a little unclean(minor stuff like some tables were not well-wiped) and the owner contacted me personally to apologize.

You sound like you still believe in the archaic market-based system where people still get to make their own choices how to spend their money.  If you persist in this heretical and hysterical belief, we have a cot at a FEMA camp waiting for you.

"We now have no such place and I will not support Fried Food for Homophobes, which is what I think of Chick-fil-A."

Hey, guess what?  Don't go there, then.  I'm sure they'll miss your .00002% revenue contribution.

Chris88's picture

I missed the part where they are forced to patronize that particular enterprise.

NoDebt's picture

Yeah, it's not like Chick Fil-A is Obamacare or something.


devnickle's picture

Don't like It? Vote with your wallet. It's called freedom of choice. That's how the real world works. I like how 99.5% of the campus should suffer frozen burritos after midnight because .5% is offended. Tolerance! 

DollarMenu's picture

You just don't get the point.

These are really, really, delicate sensibilities you're dealing with.

The very sight of a Chick-fil-A sign will send them into spastic fits.

Their togues will swell in their mouths making any attempt at reasonable speech impossible.

If the sign is left too long within their vision, they may die.

Don't expect rational tactics on their behalf - avoidance of the offending sign, non-patronization -

their genetic make-up prohibits such a state of development.

They will remain as permanent fucktards.

how long does it take these fags to microwave the cum dribbling out of their asses.

you would think they were starving,

BidnessMan's picture

Most of the LBTG (is that the right order?) seem to be what used to be called "chubby".

So starving is not their problem.

e_goldstein's picture

Funny, I figured they would have thought it was racist.

formadesika3's picture

shouldn't be intersectional... that's why EEOC not on campus   have to be on alert with hostile tweeting President at war with everyday POC... thank you for your little concern

Why did chick fi a cross the road with an ax

Stupid mother fuckers keep running their cock sucker until they piss off everyone, nice plan faggots.

The one here in Lafayette LA,  they need to move into the Sears store that's closing up..it creates  the biggest traffic congestion. .I personally,  don't see what the rave is all about ...when I do eat chicken,  it's Popeyes.

Homosexuals are perverts. Society can't heal with these pansies, butches, and queens front and center. It will be a great day when they crawl back into their closets.

Have a heart for the LBGT crowd.  Where else are they going to get a job with that liberal arts degree now that the US military is not an option?
