Or you could not be an ass bag.
@Dongo, *rainbow colored a$$ bag*
@Dongo, well I don't like companies doing these types of things either. More often than not they provide no real benefit to the community they are coming out to support amounting to nothing more than a cynical publicity stunt.
@Hagasay, yeah but you know that’s not what he’s saying.
@killer memestar, well we don't know that for sure. We just know he doesn't like this agenda push for one reason or another. This is another thing I hate about this topic. Alot of times when diversity and other such topics come up the opposed side is labeled bigots almost immediately when they aren't (I will admit there are alot of bigots out there). More often than not people don't like what's happening but cant tell you why but if you really dig down it's actually if not a good reason an understandable one. I can't tell you how many years it was before I was able to organize me thoughts enough to understand what rubbed me wrong about these type of ad campaigns in particular. We shut people down and kick them out before they even understand their own thoughts much less speak them out.
@Hagasay, I agree with you. These campaigns are a turn off to me too. They don't care.
On the flip side though, I hate the overuse of the word homophobe. People who are against homosexuality on whatever grounds they claim aren't afraid of them. There is no phobia there. For some reason, it just irritates me.
@RogueKnight, phobic when used as a suffix doesn’t always mean afraid of. It can just mean to be repelled from something. As in homophobes want to distance themselves from, and avoid, homosexuals.
And I don’t really have a problem with businesses supporting the LGBTQ community considering just how homophobic the United States is. For us it’s an empty sentiment, but for people in that community it probably feels nice to know you have people on your side.
@Fuggles, on the one hand I feel like a lot of these companies are just doing it as a way to market more especially when it’s done by companies that donate millions to homophobic/antigay organisations, but there are quite a few that actually donate a portion of the proceeds from pride month products to LGBTQ+ organisations so you just have to look. But also it does have the added benefit of getting all the homophobes to come out and get all loud and salty about it which makes it easy for me and my other LGBTQ+ friends to avoid them so there’s that
@Beede, they just spend all the money on flags, so it's futile. (Joke)
@RogueKnight, It's like the word hydrophobic. Hydrophobic describes a substance that doesn't mix with water. Like you said It's not that we're scared of gays, we just have an aversion to them (or, in my case, an aversion to their actions while the people themselves may or may not be acceptable)
@Hagasay, Pride month: just a bunch of corporate pandering, no ifs, ands, or buts.
This fvckin Guy: probably not a homophobe. We don’t know. Give him the benefit of the doubt.
Best suicide prevention cause suicide is hella gay
I like rainbows with a pot of gold at the end.
Can’t escape the gay train!
Good thing dogs can’t see color. *goesto Mexico*
