And just like any flavor of the week, it was rammed down people's throats.

The Disco Sucks movement was a backlash against a non-inclusive scene that many people didn't fit into. There's some irony in the fact that it's being protested for being non-inclusive.

It also is reinforcing the fact that we are living in a time where people look to be victimized by anything they can think of.

I guarantee that those protesting know nothing of the history of it, or Steve Dahl's motivations behind it. It wasn't anti-gay or racist.

Social media is going to be the downfall of society. If the Sox cancel this promotion, I'm done with them.
His parody song supports what you're saying.
