pink/white/blue represents the gender binary and white people(?)

“Modern” rainbow flag: black and brown stripes with the rainbow. Is it that the rainbow did not include black and brown people?also why is race confounded with gay activism? I’m very supportive of black activism and gay rights, but they are by no means equivalent..

The black/brown/pink/blue/white arrow penetrating the rainbow. TRAs invading gay spaces using gender and claiming to speak for minorities.

Edit: I didn’t get into all of the other derivative flags, but of course they annoy me too. I don’t personally support anything other than the rainbow flag, which is supposed to be inclusive

I support the flags that actually mean something and/or have historical significance. Not the ones some incel posted on Tumblr.

This happens when we mix unrelated things together First: sexuality and gender identity.

Now sexuality, gender identity and "race"(in quotes because it's purely an American thing).

I like the rainbow flag without the extras and that's a great way of interpreting this newer arrow flag penetrating the rainbow. People of color are included in the rainbow flag and I thought it also included T. Lgbt?

The new flags irritate me, particularly the arrow one. I don't like seeing the pink, white and blue flag in general, so I'm definitely not impressed with this modified flag.

Maybe the latest flag will be primarily blue, white and pink with the rainbow on a small strip at the bottom. Nothing will surprise me at this point.

The flags are so fucking childish. That's what annoys me most. Come up with a new special identity, receive your new special flag! Tee hee. /s

A friend of mine got really excited about some transflag items before I really knew what a TRA she was. I had to ask her what she was talking about with a flag. She excitedly googled all the flags for me. I was so second hand embarrassed, OMG. This was a woman my age... She's mid thirties.

TRA ideoligy is made so obvious with their flag. You have a (blue) man in the top becoming a (pink) woman and then in the bottom you got a pink woman becoming a blue man. But the feminist are the ones perpetuating gender steriotypes.

The hilarious thing about the black and brown stripes being added was that black people added them in Philadelphia to have people pay attention to race-based discrimination happening. And then. They took it and made it mainstream. "The black and brown stripes don't represent skin color" they claim, and yet the origins say otherwise.

Also people want to be credited with being the creators of a widely used flag so bad they forgot why they were made in the first place.

The trans flag makes me feel nauseous, like walking down an aisle of 'new baby!' cards or something

The black/brown stripes say “POC aren’t included in the rainbow”.

How very progressive. 🙄

When you go outside and look at a rainbow, there is no black and brown.

Then again, this requires you to go outside, and most TRAs do not do this 😂

Oh hot diggity, I hadn't looked at that one but you described it perfectly! Whoa that is one offensive flag, wtf?!? Oh, of course they think they're doing everyone a favor. I want a few colors redacted, where do I complain?

I've read on the most annoying people's twitter feeds that the white is for non-binary. I'll take that explanation, as I doubt this crowd would ever include white people willingly. Shrug emoji
