...exactly what message is it sending?
"I like to make life more difficult for overworked, minimum-wage book store clerks," apparently.
This is what some people say about the Chik-Fil-A franchisees.
Bad comparison. At least with Chick-Fil-A, they actually own the individual restaurants. By contrast, so far as I know, Simon & Schuster do not own any book stores of their own. It's literally messing with someone's store for something a completely different company did.

(And, no, harassing Chick-Fil-A workers isn't going to accomplish anything, either, except abuse people who are already by definition powerless -- no one works at a fast food restaurant if they can find a better job, and there's no way in hell the corporate office listens to or cares what their restaurant workers think. Someone angry at Chick-Fil-A would do a lot better to refuse to patronize the business and to organize petitions, not harass people who are just as powerless over Dan Cathy's disgusting heterosexism as they are.)
