The story of how Jon and Stephen met.
The job of a CEO is three fold: 1. Set Policy for the company 2. Handle PR situations before they escalate to corporate problems 3. Keep investors happy.
If you’re trying to to defend the actions of Mozilla by equating the support of traditional marriage with slavery…
YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!
If you only support “traditional marriage” (what? trading your daughters for goats? Or rapists buying their victims from their fathers?), you’re doing a lot of things wrong.
Now, I believe that equating anything to slavery except slavery is generally a bad idea, since that’s a really damn hard comparison to make.
But seriously, FUCK “traditional marriage” and all the implied homophobia that goes with it.
Brendan Eich was not CEO for a month and he spectacularly failed at the second two. He refused to address the situation in a meaningful way, his employees started to lose faith in him, and the corporate partners that provided necessary resources started to pull out. Eich’s inability to handle the situation cost him his job, not his political and social beliefs.
Chick Fil A’s CEO donated money to hate groups. HATE GROUPS and was not fired or asked to resign. Why? Chick Fil A BANKED off of it. He turned it into a “reverse persecution” case and made shit loads of money from homophobic people on “Chick Fil A Appreciation Day” and then, after the hard right conservatives had given their time and money, announced that they wouldn’t give those organizations money anymore, getting back a good portion of the more moderate liberal patrons back.
It’s not impossible to be homophobic and a CEO in America, but if you fail to do your job than you will probably be fired.
So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?
That is some DELIBERATELY EVIL data representation. Where is the super villain that designed this fucking graph?
It’s the Y axis.

This ain’t me! Fast forward!
We are just now starting the new Agents of SHIELD because my wife was working on something. Right after I hit play on the DVR, she asked me to pause it “real quick” so she could send an e-mail. Coulson and I made the same face.
It’s a fucking Nick Furry cosplay cat.
I tried to scroll past it.
