They should take down the gay flag if they take down the confederate flag because I'm straight and the gay flag offends me?

Hell yea they should! But everyone has a right to fly whatever damn flag they want. That's how America should be. If it offends you don't look at don't buy it and so on. The sex commercials on tv during prime time offend me but I ain't raisin hell to get it removed. Hell if America starts saying oh were gonna remove such and such because it offends a few people we wouldn't have walmart cause there's at least one thing on every isle at walmart that could offend me. I could go on and on. If they wanna be all pissy bout the confederate flag and remove frome everything then hell yea remove the gay flag! I'm a proud southerner own lots of confederate flag stuff have heritage from the war. I ain't taking my flag down. I'm flying her proud. And I proudly support the dukes.4
Only if there is a mass secession of states in order to create a "LBGT nation", similar to how slavery was the issue that caused the southern states to create the Confederate States of America.
Why flaunt the USA's (former) enemy's flag IN the United States, and have the enemy's flag on American government buildings?
If u take a step back and truly ponder that last sentence... you'll realize how idiotic it is to flaunt the Confederate States of America flag in America.
Would u react the same if the USSR flag, or the Nazi Germany flag, was flown on the same pole as the American flag, on American government buildings?
Didn't think so.2
Actually, I do agree with the poster and I am not afraid to say so without the shield of anonymity.
While I support the LGBTQ community, I do not think that a flag that represents a particular group should be flown by official federal agencies. The reason we have separation of church and state is so that our government cannot be seen as supporting one religion over another.
In that same vein, they should not be perceived as supporting any one group over another. In short, it is inappropriate for them to fly ANY flag that does not represent the American public at large.2
I don't really know if you people understand the point she's trying to make here, honestly.
Anything is going to offend somebody. Yup, I understand that. I understand the Confederate flag offends black people, and I understand the reason why too. I understand why the American flag offends people, and again, the reason why too.
Since when did it become our own government's problem to make people who "offend" others quiet? You are the giving the government more power doing that, and that's obviously not a good thing. America was created because of what big government was doing in the first place.
You should have never involved them. They're supposed to be running a nation here.
Here's a thing to think about: Before the Confederacy was even created, the United States was obviously made. So BEFORE THE CONFEDERACY, slavery was a thing. Do you get my point? If you want to take the Confederate down because of slavery, or racism, then you should take the U. S. flag down too. That's just simple logic.
Much more than anything, I see the Confederate flag as southern pride, and as a sign of "If you're going to screw with us, you're going to have blood on your hands," type of thing. Which does make me admit, waving the flag is a bit unpatriotic. But hey, guess what? We have a freedom to say and express what we want... (I'm not implying at all that the south should secede again, so don't even.)
So bottom line, we shouldn't be taking any flags down unless it really is something purely evil and anti-United States (nope, Confederacy was not anti-U. S., so don't even!)0
Basicly political correctness is the new form of oppression and censorship.1
LOL I get your point, but in today's PC society, good luck getting that idea passed. For people who constantly talk about tolerance, homosexuals as a group are about as intolerant of heterosexuals as it's possible to be, and if you offend them you need to run for the hills. Hopefully society will stop putting up with this nonsense, but right now, on the heels of that US Supreme Court decision, it's going to get more shrill before people start coming to their senses and just go on with life and quit bragging about what they do in the sack.2

Nah, pride flags don't wave at government buildings, so where would it be taken down from?
And there's a big difference between the pride flag and the confederate flag,10
people who waved the confederate flag murdered and sodomized people i have provided a picture that even says the confederate flag stands for white supremacy for your viewing enjoyment.

I like rainbows and I'm sure a lot of people do too. Rainbow flag is staying4
👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 I absolutely agree with you.1
YES. so much yes.2
How about if you just move to China then, where people are told who they can be, how to act, where to work, who they'll marry and what to like. Don't like it here? I'll help you pack your bags. Hundreds of thousands of brave soldiers fought for equality for each of us--from sea to shining sea. Don't like that idea? Think your way is the only way? Get out. No one is forcing you to live here. Stop all the damn complaining about how your £€$$¥ hurts because everyone else has the same rights and freedoms that you do.7
i know right...1
