The Shame of Proud Whoppers

The Proud Whopper is fucking gay. LOL. The rainbow flag wrapper says “we are all the same on the inside.” But is that true? If some people have AIDS, and other people don’t, are both groups the same on the inside?

On June 26th, 2014, I participated in Trans March, in a loose sense of the word. I was around trans people. I marched. I helped my friend carry baked goods to Dolores Park and gave and received plenty of sweaty hugs and heard lots of people talk about safety, community, happiness. A sense of belonging.

        I’m again reminded of Sailer’s brilliant “KKKrazy Glue” expression. The only thing that holds them together is their hatred of heterosexual white males.
