Woman Sues Chick-Fil-A After Being Fired To Be A 'Stay Home Mother'

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersBusiness Blitz

Chick-fil-A is not only anti-gay, but doesn't want women with children working there either.

The fast food company, which has come under fire since president Dan Cathy openly stated his opposition to same-sex marriage, is now facing a gender discrimination lawsuit.

Brenda Honeycut alleges that the owner and operator of Duluth, Georgia's Chick-fil-A fired her so she could be a "stay home mother." Despite her "satisfactory-to-above-satisfactory" employment history with the company, owner Jeff Howard "routinely made comments to the plaintiff suggesting that as a mother she should stay home with her children."

It sounds like the people running Chick-fil-A think that everyone should live their life the way that the company sees fit.

Since she was working at a fast food restaurant, we're going to assume she needed the job. If money wasn't an issue, we're sure Honeycut would have LOVED to stay at home with her children, but they have to eat!

To top it off, the plaintiff was replaced by a man — a proven pattern of discrimination against female employees at other Northern Georgia Chick-fil-A joints. Disgusting.

    You're pathetic, Mario. We get that your militant gay makes you obligated to persecute and bully the company because that's how you gays behave when someone stands up to you and basically tells you to fuck off. But no one with a single brain cell is going to buy into your hate-drive propaganda, pansy. You are totally transparent, and not in a good way. I support Chick-fil-A's right to set its own policy about gay marriage. You're free to disagree with that policy. But you can't scream about bullying gays if you're bullying because someone disagrees with you and won't let a very small minority force them into a position they don't believe in. So STFU, suck it up, and stop bullying this company. They have rights too, whether you like it or not. And you can bet that I'll be going there to dine next Wednesday to show my support for their rights. Now post this, sissy, even though you don't like what I say.

    This would fall in line with Cathay's belief system. But we need to remember that this is (apparently) a franchisee who made his own personnel decisions. Just have to see how the case goes

    This is so hilarious, because out of the thousands of Chick fil a's out there, I figure uneducated single motherhood is a pretty awesome pool they pull from. I am 100% for gay rights, but your stories are ridiculous…you don't even try.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – YOU BORE ME is obviously a pathetic POS who has nothing better to do then made nasty comments. IT IS A GAY-THEMED site you moron. If you don't like that then leave. You are the pathetic one here. Every time you write a comment your stupidity just flows out for everyone to see. You suck AND you bore me. Go eat Chick-fil-A, it's probably the only kind of social interaction you are capable of. STFU!

    Probably never going to spend my money there again

    Re: Yes You Bore Me

    First of all, have fun gaining weight and probably cancer while you're eating at that fast food dump.

    2. "that's how you gays behave when someone stands up to you and basically tells you to fuck off." This blog post isn't even about their homophobic ways. The subject matter is about the prejudice against women and Perez is clearly NOT a woman, so where's his agenda with that specifically?

    3. "no one with a single brain cell is going to buy into your hate-drive propaganda, pansy." Didn't you just call Perez a bully before you said this? Guess you don't understand that name calling is a form of bullying, so don't be a hypocrite. I'll handle this without any name calling myself, thank you.

    4. You should also research what EQUALITY is all about since you very clearly don't understand how it's a positive thing for our world.

    5. Gays aren't that small of a minority. Have you ever read up on the ancient Greeks or is homosexuality a new thing to you?

    And for someone like yourself that seems to have such homophobic views, you do understand that by being on Perez's site, you're supporting him, right? He needs the site stats and you're just helping him. I guess that's the one thing you've offered toward the equality of gays, so thanks for that!

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – It's basic human rights you dumb fuck! Discriminating against who can marry and who can not. Sure they can have the right to their policies and their beliefs EXCEPT when it comes to DISCRIMINATION!!!

  8. Baseless... says – reply to this

    Having been an actual female employee at Chick-fil-a, I can honestly say that I was never discriminated against because of my gender or my beliefs. Back off the hate train Perez, especially when the facts you are using for your stories are few and far between. Maybe try running this story again if this woman even gets past the first judge she presents her case to. You spew more hate and venom than Dan Cathy could begin to even imagine saying in a lifetime. You are quite possibly the least tolerant human being that has ever been given a mouth piece for their opinions.



  9. 9

    That's not actually the reason she was fired. Look up the case online, they were justified in doing so. Looks like the comments were made because of her repeated lateness and taking time off, which is why she was fired. Like with most fast food places, they probably have a very strict policy about being late or calling off. Maybe the comment was inappropriate, but if someone is constantly missing work or late because of their children and that puts the company in a bind because of it, I can see how someone might get frustrated and say it. You really should just do a teeny tiny bit of research before you jump the gun and post something.

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – They have the right to discriminate?. Thats really backwards. What people would do then if restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. had again that 1910-20s policy that didnt allow black people to enter or be sat down next to white people?. How do you think people would react now at days?.
    Im pretty sure the guy who runs this place is a fundamentalist. Theres no other explanation why he wants a woman not working but taking care of her children at home only and doesnt allow gay couples to have anything to do with the place. Awfaul.

    Ahhhhh, are you not just tired Perez? We by gas from ppl that believe gays should die. But you don't believe a clean fast food chain should speak his mind about a marriage that is under a God that claims you're sinning????? Does anyone not see what a crazy fake u are? You have more hate and mental problems than a bully from any school I've heard of. You're mad BC chicken guy is winning. They have their God, their religion and most ppl feel the same way about gay marriage. But nobody needs to stop buying gas from muslims???? FREEDOM of religion , sorry it's not your moral code…but it seems to be the rest of America…BC chick fil sales are not hurting. Hell, I think you're giving them free advertising!!!!!! LMAO :)

    Re: FrankieLA – chick fil a said " thank you for the free advertisement!" Hahahaha I bought a chicken sandwich today! Mmmmm it was GOOD! I bought two more to heat up for later. I got to go run now… Burn off all that quality cooked chicken:p

    Re: kandycane – um… i don't think anyone representing this restaurant ever said that they wouldn't allow gay people to eat their food.



  15. 15

    One supposedly discriminatory act at a random Chick-Fil-A and you run with it because it ties in with your agenda. "She alleges" means she has no solid proof. "A proven fact" with no solid proof means you're making it up. Smart people know your motive. Just another fabricated story to get the gays in here all riled up again.

    censoring again cocksucker, can't handle the truth?

    I still love their wonderful chicken



  18. 18

    This is a horrible company to work for. I worked here for two years and was judged immediately in my interview based on whether or not I attended church. And then when I had to get a second job to try to support myself, they treated me unprofessionally and were outright rude, saying I couldn't do both. Dan Cathy's political agenda and beliefs should have NEVER been released to the public. They are unprofessional and deserve the hate they are getting.

  19. blah blah says – reply to this


    19

    chick-fil-a has just as much of a right to oppose gay marriage as the LGBT community has to promote it. so if you get hungry the next time you're struggling through the apparent complexity of the first amendment, i recommend trying a spicy chicken sandwich and waffle fries.



  20. 20

    fucking hypocrit why wont you post the truth about accepting ad revenue?

  21. Staci says – reply to this


    21

    ok so really? anyone is surprised with chick fil a?? I mean they are a "christian" company that closes on sunday.. HELLO everything that they do corresponds with their "belief's" so I don't get why everyone is so shocked and outraged.. and furthermore.. I am sure they didn't fire to to stay at home and if they did it was the manager at her restaurant.. the one by me is almost all women.. oh wait does that mean they are discriminating against the men????? geez



  22. 22

    Re: Staci – people are not outraged at the company until they saw which organizations they were donating huge amounts of money to. One of which was Exodus International, which was sending money to Uganda to pass the Kill The gays bill.

    Considering that Georgia is an "at-will" state, an employer can fire an employee without a reason. So it is just another case of a public defender being paid by tax-payers money for a bogus lawsuit that will only bring shame to the plaintiff when she looses this court case.

    And they tried to have a woman in San Diego deported for filing a sexual harassment suit.

  25. just me here says – reply to this


    25

    Ok, first of all, chic fil a's views on gay marriage isnt the hot topic. Its the fact that they give money to hate groups such as the Westbouro church. This instance with this woman happened in GA. GA is an AT WILL state. They can fire anyone for no reason. So the point is moot. nothing can be done about it really. I am not sure how she was able to get an attourney. I hope she wins but I doubt it.
    And as far as knocking people who work in the fast food industry… Its a hard job and yes thre are dumb people who work in it but there are people who work in it and have made a career out of it because that is what they had to do. I know alot of people who work fast food and get paid WAY better than some medical professionals. So dont slam on the fast food industry just because you think its a job that is beneath you.

    Re: badnfluenz – I don't know where discrimination has come into this debate over the Chick-fil-A CEO's statement of his beliefs. It was not stated that Chick-fil-A would not serve the GLBT, or that they would be forced to eat in the back of the store, or any sort of discriminatory practice. It was stated that he "believed" that marriage was between a man and a woman as per his biblical understanding. Whether or not you agree with his interpretation of marriage he is entitled to that belief and should not be targeted by any government officials to disapprove applications for new franchise locations because of those beliefs.

    I can understand why members of the GLBT community would want to be able to get married and I can also understand why true believers of the Christian faith would find that unsavory in the eyes of their belief system. Let's just disarm the crazies on both sides — change a marriage license to a Civil Union License and give Civil Unions all the same privileges. Allow marriages to be a Civil Union so that the religious can maintain their belief about marriage being only between a man and a woman and the GLBT community would not be denied any rights or privileges — there would essentially be no more reason to argue over this stupid issue.

    Perhaps if we changed the government recognized contract to Civil Union we could all learn to be a bit more civil with each other.

    Re: blah blah

    REALLY? wow I believe you cause you share the thoughts of ALL the workers there. NOT
    If you were working at another fast food joint its called moonlighting and a company CAN refuse that. I have NEVER seen a pissed person at a chick fil a ive been to all were nice and polite, I dont believe you. just like this girl lied so have you

    Re: disillusioned

    Wont happen because these type of people are miserable people. They dont want equality they want to ruin Christianity one step at a time. The Bible warns this will happen and now we are being persecuted because of our Christian beliefs. They dont argue over civil rights they want it to be called marriage.
