    The rainbow flag is our legitimate symbol so NOM can go and kiss all our asses as far as I am concerned. Who gives a shit what NOM demands because they are a right wing, lunatic fringe group that needs to be exposed.

    I don't feel like it's safe to have my rainbow around NOM members. I'm certain that a very high percentage are chromophiles, and I don't want my colors exposed to such perversion. No offense; I'm sure they can't help themselves, but that's no reason to endanger my spectra.

    It's time we put our foot down on the chromosexual agenda.

    Okay, I will give hem their rainbows back. I'll even help them and place the stickers on the back bumpers of their cars out in the parking lot while they are inside at their meetings.

    Next thing you know, Southbeach1500 is going to post somewhere here and spew the usual bile from his conservative gut about this. I think he's a closeted NOMophile.

    Seconded. Only, it's not that I don't like it so much that I don't understand it. Why a rainbow flag, of all graphics?

    That really makes my skin crawl.

    While a lot of color is not my style, I have a hard time being critical of either the rainbow flag or the pink triangle. The Rainbow flag has been with us for 32 years so it has some history. The pink triangle was used in Nazi concentration camps to identify homosexuals, so it is particularly difficult to have any criticism of the symbol. Here is the story behind these symbols and others:

    We could make up a new one, like tie-dyed blue and pink. Boys, girls, and the mixtures in between is what it could stand for.

    NOM is an anti-gay group, that southbeach1500 and other Republicans here support. They want gays outlawed in the US, and stripped of all civil rights.
