So the other day, Indiana’s governor signed a bill into law that the Republican controlled legislature passed called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The reality of this bill is it has nothing to do with freedom of religion and everything to do with legalizing discrimination.
Anyways, to the point, I hate to open a can of worms but when I heard this news I thought back to this same time last year and remembered how gung ho OkCupid was over Mozilla’s appointment of Brendan Eich because of his personal beliefs and that they ultimately decided to block all Firefox users.
I don’t really think OkCupid should block Indiana but their lack of even a public tweet or statement in opposition of this legislation leads me back to my original conclusion that they were just riding the media train for their own benefit and not because they support the LGBT community.
If you are going to be about supporting the LGBT community, try to at least be consistent in that support and not just do it when it will make you look good in the media!
