Chick-Fil-A = Girl on Girl Sex?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I have to give credit to Leslie Fleisher for busting out this bucket of Santorum when the latest news on Chick-Fil-A hit social media. Go Facebook … I think the fan page will be up soon. It could be a thing. She specifically references to tribadism. Yes, if you don’t know what that is … you […]
