COUGAR TOWN’s Busy Philipps: Gaying It Forward

Busy Philipps

We try to stay away from fast food, but my daughter loves Chick-fil-A. One day she overheard me talking to my mother about the whole antigay debacle. Days later, my husband was with her in the car — she was almost 4 at the time — and she said, ‘Daddy, we can’t eat Chick-fil-A anymore. The guy who owns it is so weird. He thinks a guy can’t marry a guy and a girl can’t marry a girl. But we know better!’ She doesn’t get that she’s making a statement. She just thinks the Chick-fil-A man is confused or crazy.”

Underrated gay icon Busy Philipps discusses raising her daughter Birdie by the Golden Rule in The Advocate.

      I wish her daughter could be our spokeswoman. Brilliant and so young. If only the world would raise their children to think this way.

      I love Cougartown & Busy Phillips and the whole gang… The show will begin again
      tomorrow (Tues) at 9:30pm on cable, which means we’ll get a lot better jokes.

      Can’t wait!
