NYU Says Yes to Chick-fil-A

New York University decided not to ban any businesses because of their political or social stances, which means that Chick-fil-A -- which has donated millions to antigay causes -- will continue to operate on the campus.

The Georgia-based fast food chain currently operates an outlet in an NYU dorm cafeteria. The university's Student Senators Council recently voted to allow non-university businesses regardless of their political beliefs and donations. The Gothamist reports that the council does ban businesses that violate labor and human rights.

"By not acting on this matter, we are essentially supporting heterosexism," student Whitney Coulson said, according to Gothamist. "We live in a predominately heterosexist society, and this attitude is used to justify the mistreatment, discrimination and harassment of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender, queer and questioning individuals."

Chick-fil-A gave nearly $2 million to antigay groups, just in 2009.
