Starbucks New “Third Place Policy” Is Discriminatory, Offensive And Non Inclusive
Starbucks has named their new progressive open borders store policy the “Third Place Policy” saying “We want our stores to be the third place, a warm and welcoming environment where customers can gather and connect“. Well the fact is, that third place is not a warm and welcoming place. A progressive establishment like Starbucks should realize that the term third place triggers ptsd in everyone who has participated and lost in testosterone driven competitions in which the victor is celebrated and everyone else is left to wallow in their own failure and emotional distress. If they truly want to be inclusive, Starbucks should name their new policy “The Participation Policy”.
