Lesbian Dons Cow Costume to Keep the 'Moooovement' Alive Against Chick-fil-A
Texas-based lesbian activist (and former Chick-Fil-A customer) Just Kusko started a simple protest that has become a Facebook viral hit by spending the day in a cow suit outside her local Chick-Fil-A.
"These pictures have really taken off," Just told the Advocate. "And whats funny is, it all started as a simple Facebook status. I was just sick and tired of hearing about how Chick-Fil-A could promote such hate, denouncing me as a human being. Seeing all of my friends comments on Facebook just broke my heart. And to think, of all those chicken sandwiches I ate. I actually was paying for my own demise."

So Kusko posted a her vent-style status that read "My Protest Plan: I will stand in front of Chik Fil A in a cow costume, wearing a sign: 'I changed my mind, EAT ME!' (pictures to come.)" Her wife Laura Gorman and her friends encouraged her so Kusko "documented the journey, and posted along the way. I just decided, there are a lot of mean and hateful people out there, that, feel if you are not like them, you must be less than. They can choose to be hateful. I choose not to be. I love life and everyone in it. And I am lucky enough to have a wife that supports my crazy-ass ideas — that always helps."
Gorman's photos show Kusko in her suit, with the background photoshopped to read "Gays Not Welcome," all in an effort to, as she says, "Keep the Mooooovement alive."
