cool, thoughtful people: poignant discussion of whether the trans flag is a good design because of the use of blue and pink to reference gender
me: I Would Just Never Wear Pastels
@myconidiosyncrasy this gave me a fucking crisis over the fact that I mostly wear black OR bizarre prints....and how do I wear black....with a black blazer...can I....
@myconidiosyncrasy what the trans flag lacks in my aesthetic sensibilities the bi flag makes up for and vice versa
@myconidiosyncrasy I love that I know different people who identity as either bi or pan just because they like their flag's colors better or especially dislike the other one's.
@bright_helpings akdhdj yeah same. like there's some other reasons i prefer bi, and i have used pan in the past. but i gotta say the color palette definitely has a bigger influence on my choice than is remotely logical
99% agree except im just sayin. one exception. trans stripe thigh highs in an all black outfit is Good, Actually.
@myconidiosyncrasy I love pastels but I'm a guy and my favourite colour is pink so I guess I'm the first person because it does make me feel weird that my favourite colour is considered a "girl" colour on the flag haha
@CatEntity yeah i don't really have a problem with it as like. A Loose Representation Of Society's Current Gender Roles And Deviation From Them but it's original "blue for boys and pink for girls" is comically Not Good
The instance for extra-concentrated freaks whose interests are too odd or too many for specialty communities. Nazis, techbros, sexpests, and capitalists need not apply.
