Gay cupcakes are SO gay.

by Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] on September 28, 2010

in In the News,That's So Gay

This is a true story adapted for you by my imagination:

Scene
College boy walks into his neighborhood bakery. Small Town/Big City, USA

College Boy
“Hello, fine bakery establishment owner! I’d like to order a whole bunch of cupcakes from you, my local bakery, because I like to support small local businesses”

Man Bakery Owner
“Say, fine young College Boy, I’d be happy to help you celebrate your celebration! What, pray tel, would you like your amazingly tasty cupcakes to look like?”

College Boy
“Well, Fine Establishment Owner, I’d love to purchase cupcakes decorated with RAINBOW colors. Don’t you just LOVE rainbows? Double rainbows are EPIC, so I can’t wait to see all of your delicious rainbow cupcakes at my celebration. The epicness will be EPIC.”

Bakery Owner
“Well, College Boy, that sounds like a good idea for a celebration! Rainbows are happy! And colorful! And bring joy to people! Are you having a birthday celebration for a little girl? Little girls LOVE rainbows, you know!”

College Boy
“You’re so right, Bakery Owner! Rainbows ARE colorful and joyful and full of the happy! But these yummy rainbow cupcakes won’t be for my little sister’s birthday party; they’re going to be for my celebration of National Coming Out Day on October 11th. Ins’t that fantastic?!”

Bakery Owner
“Uhhhhh…”

College Boy
“I’m sorry, sir. Is there a problem with my rainbow cupcakes? Or have you thought of an even MORE epic way to celebrate an important, positive day of recognition?”

Bakery Owner
“No cupcakes for you.”

College Boy
“Excuse me. I’m sorry. I think I heard you say, “No cupcakes for you,” but you must be mistaken.”

Bakery Owner
“NO. NO CUPCAKES FOR YOU. I have little girls whom I don’t want to be influenced by rainbows.”

College Boy
“I’m sorry. I don’t quite understand what you’re saying. Every little girl loves rainbows. Rainbow Brite, rainbow shirts, rainbow socks, drawing rainbows. I’m quite confused by your assertion that your little girls could be negatively influenced by rainbows on my cupcakes. You’re confusing me.”

Lady Bakery Owner
“NO CUPCAKES FOR YOU. WE DON’T HAVE RAINBOW COLORS FOR EPIC RAINBOW CUPCAKES. I know we are a bakery that makes thousands of delicious and colorful cupcakes every week, but it just so happens that we don’t have rainbow colors for your cupcakes.”

College Boy & the Rest of the Sane World (shaking head in disgust)
“Uhhhhhhhh……???????”

I’m sorry but did that moron just equate an “obscenity” with being gay? I’m speechless. And that never happens. I hope that idiot loses some serious business.

First as soon as you said “No Cupcakes for You!” I immediately flashed back to the soup nazi episode of Seinfeld.. I miss that show.

Back to the topic at hand. While I’d like to give you all my outrage on behalf of the college kids and gay rights all around, when I read that it was in my neck of the woods I have to say I’m not surprised. We don’t have the most enlightened group around here. I’m with Aunt Becky- Asshats!!

That story was really well written, the content was a bit rubbish though, refusing cupcakes because the guy was gay? rubbish!

A dumb attitude but a smart business move. After all, look at all the free advertising he’s getting. Although it may serve to polarize his customer base. But Hey. The Christian Right needs cupcakes too, right?

I want you to know that I’m kinda excited to know that National Coming out day is on my birthday and I may go celebrate both things at once. I know that the gays will treat a straight gal a lot better than the straights have been treating them.

Also? What a bunch of jackasses.

Wow – he has values and he doesn’t want his daughter to be affected by his COMPANY making rainbow cupcakes. Good thing my daughter’s KINERGARTEN class didn’t react that way when she told them that she had two mommies and even passes around a picture of her family.

Five year olds understand that family is family and its not who makes up your family but that you HAVE a family.

Way to go Just Cookies guy.
