I agree with the “nuts” on one thing. The gay flag should not be made to resemble the U.S. flag. They are two separate and uniform flags that have two different meanings and represent two different things and therefore should not be intertwined. That is also very “in your face” to some people and we should not impose our beliefs on the people whose beliefs we don’t want forced on us. It’s all about respect on more than one level. Don’t get me wrong. I’m the first one to tell these people to go fuck themselves when they do try to impose their beliefs on me. Just sayin’…
@Mike: Please anything they don’t like will be considered “in your face”. Technically, it’s just the stars which I think it kind of brilliant.
@Mike: I think the flag with the star is fine as it seems to be a reference to the Pledge of Allegiance
“One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”
…at least that’s my interpretation.
@Mike: Walking down the street holding my partner’s hand could be viewed as “in your face” and “imposing beliefs.” Do you advocate against that as well? There’s something self-hating IMO about monitoring one’s behavior because others may be offended.
I’m sure the ones who are crank calling also trek into NYC on weekends and secretly hire escorts. Fun story Queerty.
Cm on guys seriously U r living in NY for christ sake Be a ltl mature thats so childish..now what they gna protest against gay hotels n resorts too!
@Mike: I agree with your point that the two flags should not be intertwined because they mean different things. This may be an unpopular opinion, but I don’t want to bastardize the symbol of LGBTs…the LGBT community (until recently) has historically questioned the cultural fabric of the United States, its institutions, its religion, its morals, etc. I feel like all the things the LGBT community has questioned and criticized are represented by the American flag. And also, although the rainbow flag was a symbol that originated in California, it’s now a symbol used worldwide. I’d rather think of the rainbow flag as an international symbol of unity than one restricted to a national agenda.
