I'm telling you what, apparently instead of hooking up online or going to the bars or baths, we just need to eat at Carl Jr's (or Hardees as it's called here!). Maybe it's just the one guy's way of showing that gay men and straight men can be friends... The "Messy Meat Meaty Burger" has to be a gay burger - I'd make a joke about the two meats and being a greasy pig cow bottom, but it just devolves too quickly so I'll let Projectors make the jokes instead.

Let me tell you why politically aware LGBT folks might avoid Carl's Jr. and Hardee's.

Do you remember the "No On 6" campaign featured in the movie "Milk"? In 1978, California voters defeated Proposition 6, which would have kicked LGBT teachers AND their supporters (!) out of the schools.

The single biggest supporter of the anti-gay measure was Carl Karcher, founder of Carl's Jr. (See and He died in 2008, but I haven't spent a cent in any of his restaurants since 1978.
