Today we congratulate and celebrate a bastion of true masculinity. Caterpillar – known for heavy machinery and long lasting work clothes, Act of Gay salutes you. Caterpillar truly understanding what it means to be a man’s man, has withdrawn their financial support for the Boy Scouts. And only true Men’s Men would be so comfortable in their masculinity as to have a female speak for them.
Caterpillar spokeswoman, Rachel Potts said:
“We have inclusive policies here at Caterpillar Inc., and the foundation abides by those,” she said. “We just don’t feel that our two organizations align.”
“However,” she added, “if there’s a change in the Boy Scouts’ policies, we would certainly consider a change in the future grants — if there was a change that aligned with what our non-discrimination policies are.”
So, in true Act of Gay tradition, we are delighted to announce that Caterpillar have increased their dividends to investors by 15%. In this economic climate, that can’t be anything but an Act of Gay.
Caterpillar, we, at Act of Gay, love you – in a platonic way. Nothing creepy or gropey – unless you wear some of those sexy work boots, then it might get hard.
