    I agree with this column whole heartedly. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t able to read anything on ComicMix.

    It’s telling me i have to sign up on Facebook to reply directly to some comments, so i can’t. However, my eye was caught by this:

    Vinnie Bartilucci · Wossamatta U
    I wrote an piece about Chick-Fil-A some time back that covered the same area – eating a chicken sandwich should not be a political statement

    I might have decided to boycott Chick-Fil-A over its founders opinions, but probably not.

    I would have decided to boycott Chick-Fil-A if it actively attempted to avoid serving gays.

    But it would have been 100% irrelevant, because i never eat their nasty sanmdwiches, anyway.

      Let me clarify that “I can’t” – i AM actively “boycotting” Facebook, and Twitter, too.

    I have done this for years and years–the separation. But this week is the first time I ever threw away a piece of art that I used to love because of the artist themselves–Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. I guess I draw the line at pedophiles, child abusers and pedophile/child abuse enablers.
