Pride Flag Codes
« on: September 04, 2016, 11:03:38 am »
Hello! We are excited to announce a new feature: Pride Flags for your signatures!

This field (found in your Forum Profile settings) allows you to display a pride flag of your choice, next to the pronouns field. The use is simple: find the code for the flag you'd like in the list below, and enter that code in the field.

Right now, we only allow for one at a time, though we realize you may want to display several flags. This is still a work in progress, so suggestions are welcome, and keep in mind things may change a bit! Thank you, and enjoy the new field  :lol-fox: Special thanks to MysticSolstice for the icons, and everyone who discussed this idea a year ago <3

Please note: This is meant to be a celebration of your identity, and not an invitation for anything else. Our "not a dating site" policy still stands firm, so please do not abuse this field.

There's not really a need to point out that you're straight, since our society assume that's the default for everyone. Heterosexuals are not oppressed. "Straight pride" is usually used for derogatory purposes. You can be proud to be straight, but there's no need for a straight pride movement since that's what society caters to anyways.

You don't need to be oppressed to be proud, nor do you need to be oppressed to show the world who you are.
Who cares about social norms, we're goddamn furries.
There's no harm to adding the flag, and it'll only make people happy.

I said you can be proud  :fox-:P: I'm just explaining why we won't be adding a flag.
If anyone is seriously offended by this, they can feel free to PM me. I'm not looking for an argument about the logistics of it. FT has always been an even playing field for lgbt people, that is nothing new.

maybe they could just have a normal gender symbol for straight people or they could have flags for more types of identity beyond gender/sexuality I dunno
I don't think there is such thing as a straight pride flag though well the one that comes to mind is the Russian one
(edit: or wait its the black and white straight ally then)

I'd personally like a pangender or androygyne one but non-binary works too of course as I'm not sure if others also identify as such

I can see the flags now : 3

We won't be adding male/female gender symbols (other genders are already covered under the pride flags) for similar reasons as to why we're not adding a straight pride flag and why we disabled the gender field. Cisgender people are not oppressed and having multiple places to look for gender is confusing

These flags are meant to represent LGBT+ pride but we may consider other types of flags if you have any specific ideas?

As for Pangender and Androgyne flags those should definitely be possible to add c: if you wouldn't mind sending me images of the flags via pm that would be super helpful!

As Panda said before you can be straight and/or cis and proud. We're just explaining why these symbols won't be added into this feature

No, you're not satan. And nobody is saying you are.
It will hurt minorities. Look at it this way: not having a straight pride flag is going to offend maybe a small group of people. But allowing people to boast about being straight (which is what displaying a straight pride flag does, whether you agree with me or not) will harm most of our users here.

Like I said in my PM, I'm not really sure what to tell you beyond that. If enough people actually find it necessary, we'll discuss the option. Otherwise, this is our stance.

Offend people, upset people, whatever you want to call it. Its impossible to have a safe space if people are reminding you of their privilege constantly.

THIS IS MY OPINION, PLEASE DO NOT GET YOUR NICKERS IN A TWIST
Im pretty sure these are used as a form of pride, not just a form of identification,
LGBT Pride was not born from a need to celebrate being LGBT, but from our right to live our lives free from persecution. Unfortionaltey straight people arent persecuted as much as LGBT people because it is considered normal, where as many poeple consider members of the LGBT community to be "abnormal" (luckily this isnt a BIG BIG issue anymore, but it still is an issue), and as such don't need any form of pride because they arent persecuted or oppressed, now im not saying that straight people should be proud of being straight, but they don't need a straight pride movement, and as such that is why there isnt a straight pride  or cis pride badge on the forum.
