      “We felt that [the Proud Whopper] could bring to life a message of equality, self-expression, authenticity and just being who you are.”?!

      I think that may be reading a little too much into a saturated fat cholesterol bomb.

      This is genuinely brilliant MARKETING.

      It’s “All the same inside”?

      You mean, grease, and fat and gristle? And an occasional bone?

      Yeah, I’ve dated a few guys like that.

      While I appreciate that Burger King is showing support for gay rights in an attempt to increase their sales, I find their “food” to be difficult to swallow. But, I feel that way about most fast food.

      While I agree that fast food is completely unhealthy, lots of people continue to eat it. I think this is a terrific corporate gesture on their part.

      A company promoting equality in a really good way that makes people actually think and some people bitch & moan about that ?!?
      I don´t get why some people can´t accept this for what it is: A company seriously taking a stand\voicing its opinion.
      You can´t really believe that they are planning to sell a ton of extra burgers or getting a big push in sales out of it. And about the whining about the choice of product: They took their signature/most sold burger to deliver the message, not some side-product. I, for one, think that it´s a really big and very nice thing they did.
      How jaded is it to take a good thing and right away try to find something ugly about it ?

      My wife and I rarely buy fast food, but if we’d been in San Francisco this week, we would have bought a couple. I think it’s a lovely gesture. After all it’s only one Burger King, in one city, for one week. Kind of hoping it expands, though. Go, Proud Whopper!
