The social justice warrior vibe is all over this story from Metro News.
A bakery has been bombarded with homophobic abuse after creating a cake with a transgender Ken doll, wearing a dress.
The custom-made birthday cake shows Ken wearing a pink dress, floral sash and jewellery made completely from icing.
But after Freeport Bakery in California posted the image on their Facebook page, the staff received an onslaught of homophobic messages from people who saw the cake as a political statement.
One customer wrote: ‘I will never call you for a cake ever, again, and I am throwing your cards to the garbage.’
Another said: ‘You can dress up a plastic doll but sorry to burst your bubble. A person’s DNA determines their sex.’
Co-owner of the bakery in Sacramento, Marlene Goetzeler, told the Huffington Post she was shocked by the level of abuse.
She said: ‘I don’t ask people why they’re buying a cake. I don’t say, “Are you gay? Are you transgender?” It’s not something that comes up.
‘We’ve done a lot of same-sex marriage cakes ― we’ve done them for years. We’ve done these Ken cakes before, but it’s the first time I posted it.’
The vile comments have since been removed and in a pleasant turn of events, the bakery has been sent messages of support from across the globe.
Marlene said despite the social media frenzy, the bakery will not change the way it does business.
‘We’re in the business of spreading joy ― that’s what we do. We make cakes that people love, and that’s what we’ll continue to do,’ she added.
Christians in Sacramento should go to the bakery and order a “Jesus hates fags” cake. If the bakery refuses, then sue for discrimination.
