I'm a straight man and I like rainbows. There I said it. The thread title says it all. Ever since the gay community has adopted the rainbow as their signature banner things have changed. A person can no longer have a rainbow bumper sticker or flag, or wear any rainbow type like clothing without some assuming that they are gay. Now there are a couple exceptions most people know: The Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon" album and the Grateful Dead rainbow bears are pretty well known. Now I'm not saying anything is wrong with being gay. So let's not go there. I just hate the idea that now because the gay community uses the rainbow as a sort of identification code anyone that is not gay either can't display the rainbow, or they might be forced to explain that they are not gay. Rainbows are damn beautiful naturally occurring phenomenon and should be able to be appreciated by everyone. Why couldn't the LGBT have used another symbol? How about the hot dog? It's not like people are going to quit wearing hot dog shirts or ordering them at the ballgame just because of it. Anything else for goodness sakes. Why did they have to steal the rainbow?
