In response to the massacre in Orlando, I'd like to ask everyone here to use a rainbow avatar

Last edited Sun Jun 12, 2016, 05:29 PM - Edit history (2)

for at least the next week, in solidarity with the LGBTQ community and in memory of the dead.

(on edit) to clarify my intent...this is meant as an INITIAL act, not as a suggestion for the entirety of DU's response. It was never my belief that changing our avatars was ALL that should be done.

Make that had the same avatar.

7. Frankly...... NO.

 

Unless we can link to US politicians who say things like "I believe marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman."

Ken Burch: are people who say things like THAT, part of the PROBLEM.... or part of the SOLUTION?

9. I'm sure we can go ahead and link to that.

 

There's no conflict between that and the avatar statement.

12. If you feel what the guy posts is against forum rules, alert on it.

 

HRC could probably put this to rest by apologizing for ever saying that.

13. OH...... YA!!! W/O a DOUBT. And is that a bad thing?

 

Did she *not* SAY it?

Are there REALLY no implications to the STUPID and/or OPPORTUNISTIC things that she says?

Please, please , please: THINK about it.

20. In this context yes

 

Clinton has been a firm supporter of LGBT rights for decades

Even if she did not support gay marriage like most Americans 20 years ago she did support equality in pretty much every other area


And unlike the Republicans she has grown and has changed


Contrast that with Donald Trump's vow to repeal gay marriage

I will say this if anyone does not vote for the Democratic president in the November election they do not support gay rights

14. The avatar will be as helpful as thoughts and prayers.

 

Won't make an iota of difference.

If it makes you feel better, then go ahead.

But telling every single politician who won't support substantive gun control that you will actively campaign against them, that might yield useful results.

19. Good point. I've now re-edited the OP.

 

It was never my intent that changing the avatar was ALL that anyone here should do.

Apologies for somehow conveying the idea that that was what I was saying. My bad on the wording.
