Wait a second, when did the bisexual flag start creeping in? I mean, good on you guys for getting some recognition I guess but like, the whole point of the rainbow was that it included everyone.

Its like catcalling. Its not about sex, its about power, and reminding who has the power. Its a huge flex on the real gays, who oppose all this. Its a testament of "we can colonise your spaces, we can perverse everything that is yours" sort of thing.

Am I the only one that thinks all these flags are honestly stupid? Yes, I mean the bisexual, gay male...etc flags too, all flags except the original rainbow one honestly seem pointless to me.

What purpose do they even serve? I thought that the original rainbow one was already inclusive of all the sexualities and races, so why are there all these mini-flags? Just saying because I find them all stupid, I find it weird that people are getting obsessed over creating flags, anybody now creates a gender or sexuality and makes a flag for it, I wish we just get rid of them all.

Same. I never understood the need for more flags as the original meaning of the rainbow was that it includes everyone. You see how ridiculous it gets when pride flags became like sort of Sonic OCs - every 13 year old Twitter user keeps inventing a new one for every new gender invented.

This is pretty much how I feel, with the exception of the labrys lesbian flag because I know a lot of lesbians are attached to it and it represents our unique struggles. Lesbophobia is at the intersection of homophobia and misogyny, so it sets us apart from homosexual men AND bi-het women in a way that makes it important for us to have our own spaces and community that only focuses on Lesbian issues, if we don't speak up and proudly carve out space for ourselves, we are forgotten and subsumed by the GB. The Trans movement and "cotton ceiling" have shown me the necessity of Lesbian specific spaces. We were ignored and demonized by GBT over our concerns with T UNTIL gay men started getting the same shit from cocky females with gender delusions.

Eta: I use the labrys flag here for similar reasons, I want it to be known I'm a lesbian. Though in my personal life, I prefer the OG Pride flag and it's the one I have hanging in my bedroom and take to Pride events. I think it represents the spirit of the LGB movement best, same-sex attracted people fighting for the right to live openly as our whole selves and not have to hide who we love in the shadows.

Just put a pantone color bridge as a flag at this point

Oh the cancer flag has gotten more cancerous. Wonderful.

Cancer unfortunately spreads like that if left untreated...

Just use multiple flags. This is an eyesore.

I only saw this version of the progress flag once on ovarit, and I assumed it was a shitpost (can't find it rn). Guess it's not.

Who honestly asked for the bi flag to invade the rainbow flag from the other end? I don't remember a single bisexual asking for this, even the ones who fight the hardest for bi representation. It's honestly embarrassing, and now we're going to be accused of invading the rainbow into yet another design disaster. Especially since I think we are already represented under the original rainbow anyways, plus the Michael Page flag. Is this going to be the new pride flag for 2022? god.

Yes. Not liking this, especially the way observers take the bait and start showing off some biphobia they otherwise pretend not to have. OBVIOUSLY, this is narcissistic misappropriation yet again.

We have to make sure that the progress of the past decades isn't reversed.

Unless the progress is deemed transphobic...

All these flags being added and yet still no lesbian flag included lmao. It's better than the intersex addition (not much of a compliment), that one almost gave me a stroke

I think I've seen this version before. Never though they'd be stupid(woke) enough to use it though..

edit: What remains of the rainbow kinda reminds me of an hourglass. It's like it's counting down the seconds before the whole thing just up and implodes from the strain of revisionism, narcissism, and virtue signaling.

I see, everything's gone to shit and we get added last so we get blamed. Why does everyone hate the B?

My neighbors put up the "brown streak" flag and I want to get the biggest possible CORRECT pride flag and fly it longer than they do... Assholes.

I need to stock up on rainbow stickers and maybe put a slogan on them... LGB Pride or just be a dick and put a bunch of T's or other made up genders on them but cross them out lol 🚫🚫🚫

I will let yall know if I get arrested 🤣

Gotta dig mine out, come to think of it. Amazon has a bunch if you don't mind giving them business. I see at least up to 4' x 6' sizes.

It makes zero sense that any LGB flag (we didn't need those, the rainbow is already ours collectively) would then appear on the rainbow flag.

That's like putting more water in your glass of water and acting like something new has been introduced.

Whoever thought that up isn't a genuine bisexual person, clearly. We all know what the rainbow flag is for already.

I don't mind the different flags but I really don't think they should all be crowded into one. It looks way to crowded and aesthetically unappealing.

AHAHAHAHA It's repulsive. It's garbage. It's trash. I hate it. I love it!

Seriously this is hilarious yet grotesque at the same time chef kiss 💋
