Johns Hopkins Bans Chick-fil-A From Campus: ‘Microaggression’ Against LGBT Students

The Student Government Association (SGA) at Johns Hopkins University has banned Chick-fil-A from its campus, claiming the restaurant chain is a “microaggression” against its students.

Pundit Press reports the SGA voted 18-8 not to “support the proposal of a Chick-fil-A, in a current or future sense, particularly on any location that is central to student life.”

The SGA’s resolution maintained that the body “aims to provide a safe, supportive environment for all university affiliates now and in the future,” and noted that “Chick-Fil-A’s former CEO Dan Cathy has publicly stated divisive statements against the LGBTQ+ community,” and that Cathy was “disappointed after the supreme court’s decision on same sex marriage.”

Additionally, the SGA fears members of the “LGBTQ+ community or our allies would be subjected to the microaggression of supporting current or future Chick-fil-A development plans.”

Observing that North Carolina State University and Indiana University “have already launched efforts to ban already established Chick-fil-A’s,” the SGA said that it should look for “non-discriminatory alternatives” in new fast food chains on campus.

The resolution was sponsored by Charlotte Green and co-sponsored by Amy Sun, Jason Plush, Adelaide Morphett, and Janice M. Bonsu.
