Somebody to Love, Somebody to Hate


When Grace Slick was approached about the use of one of her songs for a Chick-fil-A commercial, she initially balked. But then she had a great idea.
Chick-fil-A pisses me off. The Georgia-based company has a well-documented history of funding organizations, through their philanthropic foundation WinShape, that are against gay marriage. In interviews, CEO Dan T. Cathy has critiqued gay-rights supporters who “have the audacity to define marriage” and said they are bringing “God’s judgment” upon the nation.
I firmly believe that men should be able to marry men, and women women. I am passionately against anyone who would try to suppress this basic human right. So my first thought when "Check"-fil-A came to me was, “F**k no!”
But then I decided, “F**k yes.”
So that was my voice you heard on the Chick-fil-A commercial during the Grammy Awards telecast. I am donating every dime that I make from that ad to Lambda Legal, the largest national legal organization working to advance the civil rights of LGBTQ people, and everyone living with HIV. Admittedly it’s not the millions that WinShape has given to organizations that define marriage as heterosexual. But instead of them replacing my song with someone else's and losing this opportunity to strike back at anti-LGBTQ forces, I decided to spend the cash in direct opposition to "Check"-fil-A’s causes – and to make a public example of them, too. We’re going to take some of their money, and pay it back.
Now all that Chick Anti-Gay money is going towards equality! Great, right??? Not according to this asswipe Franklin Graham. 
“Jefferson Airplane band’s now 77 year-old lead singer Grace Slick has announced that the money she receives from the use of her song in a Chick-fil-A ad (bought by an ad agency) will go to fund LGBTQ causes. What I want Grace and others to know is that Almighty God created and defined marriage in His Word. Any sexual relationship outside of marriage between a man and a woman is sin, and all sin carries a death sentence. 
What a fucktard. All sin carries a death sentence? So no sin and you live forever? When the truth is found to be lies, indeed.

Hey Graham, I've got a sandpaper dildo in my dungeon with your name on it. Hurts so good.

  1. I've always loved Grace Slick for her harmonies and background vocals on Jefferson Starship's "Mircales" (an excellent song to listen to loudly with headphones). Now I love her even more.

  2. I love the video from that early 80s German TV show where Grace went off the rails on stage, she's always been cool in my book.

  3. I saw her at the Sunrise Theater in 1982 I think. I remember it was an amazing show. I think this lawyer friend of mine was there too, but I'm not sure.
