Boycotts

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006 at 10:24 am

Many people have joined boycotts on Ford and more recently Wal-mart because of the support those companies give to queer groups. If you do so, you’ll have to add a few more companies to your list. One queer group, the Human Rights Campaign, ranks companies based on their friendliness, acceptance, and promotion of the queer lifestyle. Here’s a few more companies that they scored highly:

  • Raytheon
  • Boeing
  • Honeywell International
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Gap
  • Levi Strauss
  • Liz Claiborne
  • Nike
  • Nordstrom
  • DaimlerChrysler
  • GM
  • Volkswagen
  • Apple
  • Dell
  • Hewlett-Packard
  • Lexmark
  • NCR
  • Sun Microsystems
  • Tech Data
  • Xerox

In all, there were 138 companies that received a perfect score.

On the other hand, if you are boycotting the queer-friendly companies, then you should support these companies that were ranked very low by the HRC:

  • ExxonMobil
  • Meijer Inc.
  • Perot Systems
  • Reebok
  • Northwest Airlines
  • The Men’s Wearhouse
  • J.C. Penney
  • Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Nissan
  • Dun & Bradstreet
  • Gallup
  • Ben & Jerry’s
  • Kroger
  • Progressive
  • Ball Corp.
  • Cooper Tire
  • Dow Jones
  • Circuit City
  • Radio Shack
  • Toys ‘R’ Us
