Have you ever felt threatened by a chicken sandwich? Fordham University clearly thinks some LGBT students might be and has decided to bar Chick-fil-A from selling sandwiches on their campus.

Fordham University Rejects Chick-fil-A After LGBT Student Concerns
Chick-fil-A has long dealt with a tough dichotomy: The chicken sandwich specialist’s food is generally accepted to be pretty damn good; meanwhile, its politics — which have infamously included support for anti-LGBT groups — are cited by many as being pretty damn poor. The fast food chain still does solid business, so we can safely assume that some people probably choose their stomachs over their conscience.
But on college campuses, where student activism often takes center stage, Chick-fil-A has been having a tough time recently. Fordham University is the second college where the chain has elicited a negative attention this month – with the NYC-based university axing its plan to add a Chick-fil-A altogether.
According to student newspaper the Fordham Observer, Fordham has rejected a proposal from food service company Aramark to add a Chick-fil-A outpost in the Ram Café on the university’s Lincoln Center campus following “push back from clubs and independent students over LGBTQ issues and menu offerings.”
There are plenty of colleges which have progressive politics and say so quite openly.
Have you noticed that conservative students don’t complain about them?
