Buthurt definitely sounds like a gay slur.

Homosexuals have already commandeered the word 'gay'. Now they have co-opted a delicious holiday treat?

Guys, calm down, the word "fruitcake" is actually slang for "cigarettes" in some parts of the UK. I'm sure that's what they meant.

They do make some damn tasty fruitcake. I usually order 3 or 4 slabs of it at least once a year.

/Chick-File should just sell a sandwich called "Show How Much You Hate Homogays By Buying Our Food" and be done with it.

RealDisagreer: What's funny is, there is outrage for using a derogatory name for gay, but as soon as it is pointed out that fruitcake means retarded crazy person, the outrage goes away.

Yeah, that seems to be the case.

You've really heard fruitcake used as am anti-gay term?


Yes, I have, as have many other people. Your insistence that we must all be confused or making it up is crazy. It's like you're some kind of fruitcake.

shotglasss: From the comments to TFA:

This isn't stupid. It isn't anything. It's a play on words - people sometimes (poorly) bring fruitcakes as gifts to parties. They are trying to make a joke about the fruitcake being upset someone chose something better. The fact that we have to explain this to people looking to find offense to gays everywhere is pathetic.


So by "only a fruitcake wouldn't love it" they mean "only a fruitcake is worse than this shiat?"

Wow, I didn't know so many people could be so clueless.

Of COURSE this is a plausible-deniability slur against gay people. "Fruitcake" was a VERY common slur against gay people 30-40 years ago, deriving from the even-more common slur "fruit".

This is being dog-whistle marketed toward those who, a generation or two ago, would have been very familiar with calling gays "fruits" and "fruitcakes".

And when called on it, Chick Fil-A can always claim they just meant holiday fruitcakes. However, the advertisement really doesn't make any sense EXCEPT as an anti-gay dog-whistle.
