#BoycottIndiana is the Opposite of Helpful

I understand the the outraged reactions to Indiana's new "religious freedom to oppress LGBTQAIP+ people" bill. But if you think the people responsible for this bill are going to be affected by this bill, you're extremely mistaken and sadly naive about the state of the country.

Melissa McEwen of Shakesville, who lives in Indiana, has already explained this.

Boycotting products from Indiana will only hurt the poor, and LGBTQAIP+ persons are disproportionately poor. And NO, not all Indiana citizens supported this bill. In fact, most of them were likely against it. This is worse than the time Dan Savage told everyone to boycott the wrong vodka.

Get it together, liberals.
