Here's a very well-reasoned explanation as to why some people are very upset about the Starbucks cup:
Just kidding, it’s garbage.
Although we appreciate the very clear call to action at the end of the tweet.
“Ban!” There’s just no misinterpreting that message.
While some people are freaking out about the "gay" cups, the rest of us are like:
Come on, dudes. Leave Starbucks alone.
They’re not attacking Christmas, and they’re not “pushing the gay agenda.”
They’re selling overpriced, over-roasted coffee. Ban them for that, if anything.
This whole thing has just become exhausting. Are we seriously complaining about mittened hands on coffee cups now?
For real? Like, for real? That’s a thing we’re doing?
But we’re gonna complain about mittens. Cool.
Also? There is no gay agenda.
Let’s say for a second that those two hands on the Starbucks cups belong to two people of the same sex.
That’s a message of inclusion. Nothing more, and nothing less. And if you can’t behind that, you’re on the wrong side of history, friend.
Anyway, we're all looking forward to Starbucks' 2018 holiday cup, which we can only assume will look something like this:
It’s boring and completely devoid of any meaning whatsoever.
It’s the coffee cup this world deserves.
