    Re: The Rant Thread (v 1.2)

    Ok another rant time. I post a thread on an RPG forum called I'm planning to play my first LGBT character. So the character that I make was designed for D&D 3.5 game. The character name is Robert Rainbow, a Chaotic Good Male Human Bard. I explained the backstory of my character. Everything went well until a few people took offense to my character name. Which basically consider Rainbow was offensive and also a blatant stereotype to the LGBT community. The administrator of the forum explain that I should changed the whole character name and he locked my thread. Are you ******* kidding me?! I mean this country got the rainbow flag that represent the LGBT community and nobody don't have a problem with that but when it comes to my character name people get all butthurt about it. Like there was nothing offensive and stereotypical about my character name. I even asked people at my job and social media about if they find the word Rainbow offensive and so many people weren't offended with the word Rainbow. People get so easily offended for the most stupidest reason which makes no logical sense at all. What's the deal with that?! I don't know. It is what it is

    Sorry to hear this,would be almost as weird if you had a black character named "Blackjack" or maybe whity for a white one(whity bolger) so stupid to get upset I think.

    not like you named your cher "Sir Faggot" or something blatant I see nothing bad about rainbow at all.

    I know right. This is 2018. It doesn't make no sense that represent a harmless non-offensive word that represent the LGBT community.

    If I remember the chant by the LGBTQ groups was "We are here,and we are queer,get used to it"
    So the LGBTQ embraces the term QUEER as a positive label.

    the whole rainbow flag and such was a symbol of inclusion.

    see here about how the rainbow flag came about.

    also consider this.

    The Rainbow Coalition was a coalition active in the late 1960s and early 1970s, founded in Chicago, Illinois by Fred Hampton of the activist Black Panther Party, along with William "Preacherman" Fesperman, Jack (Junebug) Boykin, Bobby Joe Mcginnis and Hy Thurman of the Young Patriots Organization and the founder of the Young Lords as a civil and human rights movement Jose Cha Cha Jimenez.[1] It later expanded to include various radical socialist groups and community groups like the Lincoln Park Poor People's Coalition.[2] It was associated with the rising Black Power movement,

    Thanks Anunitu. I did a tarot reading for on how my thread will turned out a few weeks ago. It turned out good at first but later on it was a disaster. The accuracy of this reading was so accurate it not even funny.

    Wow interesting. I have to change a few LGBT character names because people will make a huge deal out of it.

    I was born in the mid 80s. I don't think that I was around in your era back then.
