  1. The Rainbow flag is not a flag of race so no, black and brown stripes should not be added. But if they are, then a white stripe should also be added.

      1. Yes, why not?
        Have a straight pride parade for sure.
        Nothing to stop that at all. Somewhat suspect it would be a bit boring though. :)

        bran is 100% correct and adding black, brown any colour stripes to promote or appease any particular race is in fact racist.

          1. Keeping to the exact point of only the rainbow flag.
            I haven’t ever been aware that it represented anything other than all gay people worldwide and always considered the flag had no racial bias at all. I’ve seen it flown across the world by all sorts of people. I’ve never thought of it having meaning other than Gay.

            So, now changing the flag to specially note any single group seems illogical. Graspingly selfish perhaps.

            Anyway, this nonsense is part and parcel of social thought these days. Very much like Twitter poisoned by strangers showing virulent offence on behalf of people they don’t know and will never meet.

            Strange.

  2. I must be an “old queer people” because I don’t see the need for a new cyan stripe on the rainbow flag. I’d rather have it upgraded to Isaac Newton rainbow’s official seven colors as opposed to the LGBT rainbow’s six.
    Joke apart, I am OK with the new stripes, if it’s to fight off racism. Maybe the cyan stripe could symbolize the anti-discrimination against drag queens among gays? ;)

    I hope these immigrant toddlers are getting a pro bono nanny too.

    And the Thai kids are out and well!

      1. I was referring to the new stripes of the proposed rainbow, which also has cyan, pink and white, not just black and brown.

  3. HIV vaccine: Hope it works out positively.

    Istanbul pride: All social justice activists should spend more time criticizing the treatment of the LGBT

    Black and brown stripes: The flag belongs to ALL members of the LGBT community of all races. Adding stripes for the purpose of “Stamping out prejudice”–all gays were oppressed once upon a time: White, Latino, Asian, black, LGBT+. One thing no one really talks about are the intersectional divisions within the gay community. In my city, for example, there is the gay pride parade, but there’s also a black pride, AND a “dyke march”. What ever happened to having one united community?

    US Healthcare: I disagree. It’s the best healthcare with the worst system and regulations behind it. There are countless Canadians and Europeans who travel here to use our world-class facilities, nationwide. Furthermore, the United States spends more money on medical research, on developing new products and equipment than any other country in the world. We also have the highest cancer survival rates worldwide; my mother is living proof of this.

    Unfortunately, healthcare is heavily regulated here (i.e. Obamacare), which drives costs up, and has little to no competition. To put into perspective, ask your doctor stateside how much something will cost, they won’t be able to tell you. If you look on any doctor’s bill, smaller components (i.e. baby formula, ibuprofen) are marked up obnoxiously to compensate for other costs, or even costs of other people who don’t pay their hospital bills (by law, you cannot turn people away at emergency rooms).

    There are doctors practices out there who actually refuse to work with insurance companies for payment and are able to offer quality care with price transparency, for a fraction of the cost, with all items you will need included, from casts or splints to follow-up appointments. Financing or paying on credit can be secured (like any big-ticket item)

    It’s not our healthcare, it’s the system of red tape and other complicated factors. Making healthcare a “right” and not a “commodity” or proposing universal healthcare will just make things even worse; as of now, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid account for over half of the US budget. Universal healthcare will balloon the country’s debt even more while making the quality of care worse.

    1. Someone is having a big mouth…
      Your ultra-conservative links also deny climate change and generally don’t report objectively on these political matters. Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire can’t even be called a fake news site, because it is an opinion site, or it would also have included in the “7” reasons the outrageous prices charged at hospitals, or the insane costs and constant price hikes of drugs. Even Trump had to intervene to delay Pfizer’s recent unjustified price hike. We have seen price hikes reach several hundreds per cent in many cases, upping the yearly drug bill for several chronic diseases from a couple hundred bucks to several thousands. Obamacare has no play in that, only the cupidity of drug manufacturers.

  4. HIV vaccine: Hope it works out positively.

    Istanbul pride: All social justice activists should spend more time criticizing the treatment of the LGBT persons in countries like Turkey, protesting, etc.

  5. HIV VACCINE > Hope it works. After over half a century of delightfully outrageous promiscuity, I’ve probably taken in and absorbed a bathtub full of bodily fluids, and I’ve been lucky. Never caught anything. But I know guys who weren’t so lucky … caught it … and died.

    ISTANBUL PRIDE > The religion of peace strikes again.

    DEATH SENTENCE > When a defendant is convicted of first degree murder, I don’t care what criteria they use to decide the sentence. I’m with the jury on this one – but not because the accused is gay. I wouldn’t sentence him to prison because he might have a good day. he might enjoy a meal, hear a funny joke, smell a flower or bread baking, hear music, share a smile, or read a book. He might be visited by a friend or family member, hear some good news, or receive a gift. In short he might participate in anything his victim can’t.
    The death penalty is the only moral punishment for a capital crime – anything less elevates the life of the murderer above that of his victim. The death penalty is recognized and accepted in both religious and political Scripture (Holy Bible and U. S. Constitution).

    OHIO OUTING > Tough call. If my son thought he was a babe, or my daughter thought she was a dude, and the school or their doc knew and I didn’t, I’d want to be informed. My parental rights exceed my minor children’s privacy until they reach the lawful age of consent – which in most jurisdictions is usually a few years before they turn 18. And there’s no way a pre-pubescent kidlet should receive treatment for gender dysphoria or any other serious, life changing mental condition without parental involvement unless it is determined by a competent court that the parents might be dangerous under the circumstances.

    RAINBOW FLAG > Leave the thing alone. Innocence and purity are delicate virtues, easily destroyed by gratuitous politicization.

    US HEALTHCARE > Once we get The Wall funded, we can move on to solving issues with healthcare. First things first.

    RUSSIAN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE > Barbarians. Oh well, better there than here. A guy throwing a punch at my daughter risks much – she might just shoot him. She’s damn good with her carry gun. (I taught her well.)

    IMMIGRANT CHILDREN > Let’s be clear here – ILLEGAL immigrant children, suspected of gang activity. I couldn’t care less. I’m for anything that bedevils illegal aliens with fear, discomfort, inconvenience, uncertainty, frustration, and anxiety. Build the fucking Wall and the issue will either go away or be reduced to manageable levels.

    IMMIGRANT TODDLERS IN COURT > An obvious unintended consequence of their parent’s wanton criminality. Nevertheless, the fate of any illegal alien, of whatever age or gender, however ridiculous or impossible, could not possibly be of interest to me. Hint: Build The Wall!

    SAMSUNG SMART-ASS PHONES > LMAO – my antiquated flip-phone, which is without internet connection (fuckers at T-Mobile wanted five bucks more a month for that!) is looking better and better all the time.

    APPENDIX > Congratulations America on the nomination of The Honorable Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the D.C. Circuit to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Now, if Ginsberg or Breyer would go to their reward or just retire, The Donald could drive a stake through the heart of the progressive agenda and safeguard Constitutional government for the next generation.

    1. “Congratulations America on the nomination of The Honorable Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the D.C. Circuit to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Now, if Ginsberg or Breyer would go to their reward or just retire, The Donald could drive a stake through the heart of the progressive agenda and safeguard Constitutional government for the next generation.”

      You just proved to all of us just how mentally ill you really are (not to mention how stupid you are about politics — and religion).

  6. Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain.

    Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.

    So you’re right Penboy. It is Indigo, not Cyan.
