Marvel's Gay Marriage/Chik-Fil-A Allegory In Today's Cable And X-Force (SPOILERS)

In today's Cable And X-Force #3, we get a new bad guy. Possibly. One Teresa Peyton. Wannabe world conqueror? Communist terrorist? Al Qaeda cell member?

Or fast food magnate?

Marvel's Gay Marriage/Chik-Fil-A Allegory In Today's Cable And X-Force (SPOILERS)

Yes folks, it's the boss Eat-More and the link between her chain of restaurants and her mutophobic views. Which is clearly an allegory towards Chik-Fil-A's Dan Cathy and his statements and support against against gay marriage.

So what options do Cable And The X-Force have? A boycott that could play into mutophobic concerns? Campaigning on social media? Maybe an ad campaign of their own? Hope, lay out the options.

Marvel's Gay Marriage/Chik-Fil-A Allegory In Today's Cable And X-Force (SPOILERS)

Oh yes because there's some kind of mutant virus involved at the store;s operations? Otherwise known as Glenn Beck. So can we hear from the woman herself?

Marvel's Gay Marriage/Chik-Fil-A Allegory In Today's Cable And X-Force (SPOILERS)

So hang on… now we've moved into gun control? Not so much an anti-marriage bigotry analogy, but now anti-gun control for teenagers analogy?

What's an American liberal or conservative to think? Can you be anti-gay marriage and pro-gun control at the same time? Then Cable And X-Force #3 my be the Marvel comic for you!
