NYC Activists End Hunger Strike Because Funding To Keep Them From Eating Ran Out

Alan Bounville, a 34-year-old activist in New York, called off his hunger strike nine days after swearing off food on Nov. 1 because Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand wasn’t filing legislation to add gays to the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Something about a lack of funding for the effort? Ms. Gillibrand has yet to file such a bill.

      Idiots. Threatening suicide by starvation is childish. Grow up. It’s 2010 and the world has changed. Try to find something productive to do.

      I’m sure these quasi-marxists mean well, but threatening self-harm, especially when no one cares, except maybe a few homophobes who are cheering you into self-destruction, and then pulling out short for lack of funding?

      Here’s my advice: Live it up. Go eat some fried tofu at your favorite Thai resturant. Ride the Ferry or take a walk in Central Park while singing Autumn in New York. Wear your fabulous rainbow sash and have fun in the big Apple!
