That's a pretty sad read. Even though people have differing opinions on if people can change their gender I think most people can agree that they should be treated like everyone else. A bad proposal imo.

It's pretty mind blowing that some people want to openly mitigate, disparage, harm, oppress, etc...someone else for simply existing.  I just don't understand that.

Trump seems to think that the only thing you need to do to win over a demographic is to print a shirt proclaiming how much they love you:

Yeah, I'm sure a shirt with a rainbow on it will make up for all of the times you rolled back rights and protections for LGBTQ individuals... Brilliant move.

What move would you want them to take in order to appease you?

A shirt with rainbows on it does not make up for the offense you took, but it is surely better than nothing i assume.

It's worse than nothing.  

At least doing nothing would have been honest.  Pretending you support someone, and then doing everything in your power to go against them, makes it that much worse.

You make it sound like asking the Trump administration to not dismantle protections/rights for LGBTQ individuals is some big ask. All the Trump administration had to do was literally nothing on this front, but unfortunately, they didn't.

And no, this shirt is worse than nothing.



You guys don't like the shirt because it embodies white pride. You'd have different opinions of it if only the shirt was black.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Trump administration to LGBTQ+: Remember those legal protections you gained under the last administration?  The ones that made you legally equal in the eyes of the law for protection against emergency services discrimination, homelessness discrimination, and government health services discrimination?  Yeah, we're going to actively take that all back.  But hey, buy our cool $24 T-shirt showing how much you support Trump.

Ever notice that Trump leaves the country anytime there is a military or veteran related holiday and doesn't celebrate it but will use the military and veterans ostentatiously when it suits his agenda?

Memorial Day was today in the US. A day where we honor the soldiers who lost their lives in service. Trump was in Japan playing golf.
