JHU Student Govt: Chick-fil-A on Campus Would Be 'Microaggression'

By    |   Friday, 24 Apr 2015 06:23 PM

The Johns Hopkins University student government said this week that it does not want a Chick-fil-A on its campus because of its traditional view on marriage.

The university's Student Government Association adopted a resolution telling the administration that it wants any discussions about bringing Chick-fil-A to campus to come to a stop, The College Fix reports.

The student government cited the fact that the company supports traditional marriage, and said that if the restaurant were allowed on campus it would be a form of "microaggression."

The resolution is in response to the recent construction of a building where many students were requesting that a Chick-fil-A be added, but a majority of the members of the student government oppose the move.

"The SGA does not 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 resolution says.

It argues that "visiting prospective and current students, staff, faculty, and other visitors who are members of the LGBTQ+ community or are allies would be subjected to the microaggression of supporting current or future Chick-fil-A development plans."

One student said the student government's vote is the "nail in the coffin."

But the student government said the purpose of the resolution is "to encourage the administration to seek alternative chicken vendors before Chick-fil-A in the best interest of a cohesive campus environment in which all students feel accepted."

It added that the resolution is not a ban "but rather the SGA's opinion on future developments."
