Not that I've ever done much shopping at Hobby Lobby, anyway. Maybe once or twice a year.
But I have occasionally made a stop if I was looking for, say, both upholstery and craft item for the same project. Less driving around, less wasted gas and time, blah, blah.
But no more.
I don't really give a shit how my boycott affects hobby lobby (though a good hurtin' on them would be most satisfying). Seems hobby lobby doesn't care as much about profits (as evidenced by having their stores closed on busy Sunday shopping days) as much as they care imposing their conservative fundie ideology on women who are at their mercy.
Well, this is one woman who's had it with them and their ilk. Time to take a stand.
What I care more about is sending a message to those companies that might even consider following hobby lobby's example - you take this course of action, you discriminate against women, you play these games, then be warned and prepared, because.you.will.pay.
Who's with me?
It's been suggested that I post of list of the other companies that were also challenging ACA's mandatory contraception mandate in court
