Oh. My. God. This is tantamount to genocide! Coming up: The meltdowns. The tantrums. The trauma. The triggering. The therapy. The Twitter rampages. The voluntary psych holds. The suicide threats...

Coming up? They've been doing that for ages now.

Oh yes. I just meant the immediate response to this new transphobic outrage.

Good. That "progress" flag is racist af.

It still amazes me how much popularity the "progress" flag has gained, when it is a copyrighted product that one single trans-identified person makes money off of and refuses to donate to any LGBTQ+ charities.

Best scheme to con corporations out of money that I've seen in ages... make a few adjustments to a social symbol and tell them that they'll be "cancelled" if they don't pay up for it. Usually the corporations are the ones doing something that Machiavellian, lol.

Somehow I had missed that nauseating detail about this flag's origins. So I went to the perpetrator's Twitter timeline as you suggested on your other post:

  1. His site: https://progress.gay/ https://archive.ph/kPbc2

  2. Sample of recent self-promo tweets:

Anyone who cares to add more to this is welcome. Would love to see some verbiage about his refusal to donate any of his profits.

He found a niche in the market and exploited it, I wouldn't think he's obligated to donate any money he's made to anything. He's a douche and a tool, but his customers are the problem, not him. He's straightforward about what he's doing.

The original pride flag was a reworked version of the PACE flag that had been in use since the 60s, itself based on the Cursillo banners first used sometime in the late '40s.

Thank the fucking heavens. No more progress flag that gets re-designed every third day.

So some duchess of something has been peaked? 😜

Jk, but really though... who has the power to effect all of these institutional policy changes so quickly?

All of these changes in the short span of a week don't seem organic, they speak to someone with a lot of power dictating from on high.
