The pride flag has seen numerous iterations, it being the official flag of “current thing”. Expressing support for Ukraine by displaying the colors of its flag is the new “current thing”, so it’s only natural that it be included in the increasingly-inclusive pride flag.
Putting aside, of course, that the Ukraine doesn’t legally recognize same-sex marriages.
How displaying a couple arbitrary colors is supposed to support a country that’s under attack by an imperialist aggressor is not a bad question, but as we all know, virtue signaling takes no effort. Otherwise, we’d be seeing almost no virtue signaling out of anyone.
However, as it is, the current flag doesn’t adequately express the true virtues of the pride community. For one thing, the pride community prides themselves on group action. Thus, their flag would better represent them with a pattern of four similar flags. What’s more, the pride community is about togetherness in embracing superficial differences. Therefore, it’s appropriate that these four similar patterns be arranged in a manner representative of arms encircling.
With these considerations, a more accurate pride flag would look like this:
It’s obvious that this flag is more representative of the virtues of the pride community. Years from now, when the pride movement is looked back upon by historians, they’ll see this flag and have little doubt as to what it was really about.
Rather than be left behind, the pride community feels obliged to update to the most current flag, or risk being seen as not inclusive of current thing. What they do with their old flags, I don’t know. Perhaps there’s some colorful landfill somewhere to which the outdated pride flags are sent when the typical NPCs undergo their updates.
In any case, there’s yet another new flag to replace their old ones. And it will be their current flag until some Tumblrite thinks of yet another color band to add to another revision. Which could mean they’d have another flag as soon as next week.
