    “Hey, you’re a homophonic piece of s*** for eating Chik-Fil-A. Cease to exist. Just cease to exist. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to catch up on the latest episode of Star Wars: Andor on Disney+.”

    It’s the saddest s*** dude, it’s so f***ing annoying.

    It’s essentially amounts to “Your piece of s*** company are pieces of s*** out in the open, while MY company has the good sense and decency to be pieces of s*** behind the scenes, thus making me a better person for supporting them instead of supporting the one that YOU support.”

    Also, the whole “This company is showing ‘solidarity’ with this activist movement, someone link me their site so I can buy a bunch of their s***.” is maddening.

    Liberals dude, they gotta make it all work somehow.

    It’s like consoles wars but even dumber because people use it as a means to evaluate the character of a person and essentially define them by it.

    I mean not wanting to support companies because of their practices / executive support of policies is valid. And it’s pretty tough to avoid problematic financial support (i.e. no ethical consumption). But yea stanning corporations is cringe

    I get that, on a personal level. My problem stems from people using it as moral high ground when they support companies that might ultimately be even more damaging to more people, but just aren’t as out in the open with it.

    It just goes to show how powerless we ultimately are and how entrenched we are in raw consumerism.

    Yeah claiming moral high ground on consumption is a lil silly I’m general. I mean you can certainly be more mindful but at the end of the day u putting gas in your car

  • eh i disagree ngl

    yeah there is no ethical consumption under capitalism but when u support a company that publicly and proudly attaches itself to bigotry and hate, i feel like it’s kinda goofy to use whataboutism to defend yourself

    that’s not to say that i personally care if you eat chic-fil-a but it’s a bit of a false equivalency

    But outside of op n in a general sense, most things you see online are not new phenomenon

    They are just new to you due to the fairly new worldwide interconnectivity of modern mass internet n social media

  • i thought about this too but my conclusion is that we see LESS of this now than ever before

    in the past people would organize actual boycotts of products

    now its just like 5 people on social media no one listens to

    heckin liberals!!

  • Sep 22

    theres no such thing as ethics or morality

  • Crine you mad as s***

  • Yeah we were getting a chick fil a here and these women at work were like “idk if I can eat there”

    This was before I had even turned more marxist with no ethical consumption under capitalism, but I was just like “I want a chicken sandwich got dammit”

    It’s fine not support certain companies but to judge others cause they don’t not support them too is just ridiculous. Some people just have too much time on their hands and it shows.

    I feel like there’s an added cynicism to it all now though given how much more accessible the background of these major corporations are.

    Added alongside that a lot of them literally adopting personalities and interacting with customer bases through social media.

    Now the disingenuousness is interactive.

    OP is right regardless. There is no such thing as “ethical consumption” when even the most PR friendly companies are spending tons of money making sure their workers and their user base are in a precarious position so there is a constant reliance on them
