This editor did a VIP post the other day about his effort to avoid Pride Month (MONTH …) as much as possible. It is impossible, though. Just want to kick back and watch a movie on whatever streaming service you subscribe to? BAM! Here are our selections for “Amplifying LGBTQ Voices.” Our city just recently got its first rainbow crosswalk, though no one dares desecrate it by walking on it.
We missed this the other day before New York City was swallowed up by an orange cloud of smoke from Canadian wildfires, but someone at Rockefeller Center went through and replaced each and every one of the 193 UN member country flags with Pride flags. Some countries are not going to be happy about that.

This is what "oppression" and "marginalization" look like.

Imagine thinking gay people are oppressed in America 🤣💀 GIRL BYE
I’m so beyond sick of this and I’m GAY. Truly can’t even imagine how straight people feel having this shoved down their throats nonstop. pic.twitter.com/6pazl3gBtC

Pride has become a very sad time of year for me. Summer used to be a time to enjoy. Now @HRC has created a nightmare for us. My flag is RED, WHITE and BLUE. We were never asked if we wanted the rainbow flag or if we wanted to celebrate one of the seven deadly sins.

Imagine if straight men that like anal with women had a flag and wanted it to be put up everywhere. And to go to schools to tell the kids about how much they love anal. And you were a bigot for not wanting any of that. I miss when talking to 5 year olds about sex got you arrested

More flags doesn’t equal more acceptance. Being decent people will result in more acceptance. That goes for ALL people of every race, ideology, etc. Just be cool & you won’t have to wave flags in people’s faces constantly.

It's not like they are hiding their agenda. Why is recognizing it even interesting anymore? Even our grandparents are becoming complacent.
Is this the idea of capitulation or watching the Titanic sink?

The level of oppression is overwhelming.

A lot of people are calling the project transphobic since they used the “old” Pride flag which doesn’t have the angled stripes representing transgender people and queer people of color.
