Companies like Disney (Ford, Wall-Mart Ect) don’t fear Boycotts.. What they fear is the press and elite opinion. Focus on the Family can boycott anything they want and no one will really notice. But GLAAD or some other interest group on the left launches a charge that X or Y company is “discriminatory” and the whole media lights up.

These companies aren’t exactly eager to give away prohibitively expensive “partner benefits” even to legitimately married men & woman. Yet years back most of them bent over backwards to offer them to homosexual couples. The “why exactly” of that story is one you wont be seeing on 60 minutes.

As far as Walkers “impeccably Hayekian fashion, as folkways appear on the ground and are gradually ratified by imitation”– well, if Yale University and the NYT are ground up folkways…then what is this….
57-43 = Oregon, 59-41 = Michigan, 62-38 = California, 62-38 = Ohio, 66-34 = Utah, 67-33 = Montana, 71-29 = Kansas, 71-29 = Missouri, 73-27 = North Dakota, 75-25 = Arkansas, 75-25 = Kentucky, 76-24 = Georgia, 76-24 = Oklahoma, 78-22 = Louisiana, 86-14 = Mississippi, 56-44 = Colorado, 63–37 = Idaho, 74-26 = South Carolina, 52-49 = South Dakota, 82-19 = Tennessee, 57-43 = Virginia, 60-40 = Wisconsin..

How does that fit in???

Dr. Robert Spitzer, a renowned psychiatrist who helped remove homosexuality as a disorder from the medical manual, is sympathetic to gay rights and maintains that some gays can change their sexual preference -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qdeoh_ruI0 Gay rights also includes the right of gays who want to explore their heterosexual potential. . ."
