Religious "pride flags"?
« on: December 20, 2017, 04:15:10 pm »
Would it be possible to add little symbols we could add to express our faith, somewhat similar to the gender/orientation pride flags.
Christians could have a cross, Jews could have the star of David, Hindus would have an Aum, wiccans could get a pentacle, etc.

Seriously, wolverines are super uncommon fursonas.

German thingy of the day:
Did you know that the German word for girl is neuter? The word is Mädchen. Let's break it apart. -chen is the diminutive(little) suffix, which automatically makes it neuter. Mäd is not a word (mädchen is a really old word that fossilized), but it derives from magd, which mean ... maid. Little maid. Ouch. But wait! When Magdchen (mädchen) became a word, Magd meant girl. So when it came about, Mädchen meant little girl. It became one morphological unit and now it just means girl. It's actually cognates with maiden!

We've considered it before but there's several issues which is why it's never been executed. Largely the fact that there's no "official" flags for religions unlike countries or even orientations/genders. So while we could technically make them up it wouldn't necessarily be clear to those who new to the forum etc what they mean. There's also an issue of religious sectors, there's so many types of Christianity, paganism etc and without official flags it's incredibly hard to differentiate them. Plus many religious symbols would not be recognizable in pixel format, I had this issue with the country flags (eg Mexico) but since they're internationally known already it wasn't a "huge" issue with them but since these are flags we'd essentially have to create ourselves it becomes a bigger issue that symbols aren't recognizable
