POLL: Why Do We Still Buy From Anti-Gay Businesses?

See the results of last week's poll here.

Lots of gay folks still buy Cinemark movie tickets, Mobil-Exxon gasoline and Urban Outfitters clothing even though each of those companies have anti-gay policies. But why?

The most notorious offender of late is Chick-Fil-A, the fast food chain which donated $2 million towards anti-gay organizations in 2010 alone. This week, the chain's egg-headed president Dan Cathy said that his restaurant supports “the biblical definition of the family unit," and later boasted about how his comment "really lit up the LGBT community" (a tweet he has since deleted).

But while the drama continues to play out in the news, let's take a second to consider why some of us buy things from anti-gay companies. Vote in the poll below and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
