They already get an entire month of the year and endless support from every major corporation and rainbow flags everywhere. Obviously not enough and desperately need a dedicated shelf on twitch too otherwise they will be labelled anti LGBT soon.
Ridiculous things like child poverty, veterans or i dunno CANCER get just a day but Pride somehow went from a day to an entire month. I’d prefer a dedicated Twitch shelf for those instead but I guess the squeaky wheel gets the oil.
I agree. I'm a leftist who thinks identity politics have ravaged whatever leftism remained in the United States after decades of degradation via government agencies, the media, and infighting. If I say anything against it I'm immediately labeled a right-winger and Trump-supporter. Years ago when I was supportive of LGBT in Virginia I was called every anti-left epithet imaginable. Now, I'm considered socially conservative for thinking that a month of publicly celebrating sexuality is excessive.
And if this needs clarification I am not anti-LGBT in the slightest. They're just being used for corporate and political PR at this point and it's ridiculous, considering that the point of pride was celebrating yourselves in spite of the mainstream world wanting you to cease existence. It's an easy way to get brownie points. Just throw up a rainbow flag and you're considered a good entity in our increasingly black and white views of the world.
The world runs on cynicism.
