I have two sides: “Oh that’s nice” “FUCK CORPORATIONS! FUCK RAINBOW CAPITALISTS USING OUR MESSAGE AND CAUSE FOR PROFITS!”


jannemannetjens

Indeed. Perhaps a ranking of companies that actually do something and a ranking of companies that are most full of shit would be nice, so waving rainbow flags comes with some responsibilities as well.


Gynther477

Hasn't every mega Corp supported and bribed Republicans, so none of them would be on the positive side.


MightBeAGirlIGuess

I mean the democrats haven't done a ton either. Sure they aren't actively as evil, but I hate the "lesser of two evils" crap that we're stuck in.

Something I saw on Instagram the other day that mildly relates to this, if anyone here plays guitar, or also bass I guess. [Be sure to read the caption.](https://www.instagram.com/p/CQQ_EGBDBNo)


Discordia_Dingle

That’s amazing!


DinoDonkeyDoodle

Fwiw, Microsoft covers 100% of transition related medical care, nose to toes. I’ve heard stories of employees being outright fired on the spot for homophobia. They may not be perfect, but they are way better than, say, Wal Mart.

Linux Gang.

newbiesaster

Jokes on them, I'm gonna refresh my vaccines every year to become the ✨GAY OVERLORD✨


DRAGONBLOOD830

NOT IF I DO IT FIRST STRAIGHTY


newbiesaster

what if we do it all together and OVERRUN THE WORLD AS A GAY OVERLORD ARMY


DRAGONBLOOD830

The Gay Anarchist Initiative, (G.A.I for short)


UknownQuantity

Sash. You're not supposed to being saying this out aloud. The "others" are still reading the "Gay Agenda" pamphlets we about to confuse them ;-)


ronja-666

That's cool! Now give us rights, please.


plushgamR

I want more than some Rareware ruining business location to put a rainbow heart on its building, I want the right to exist please


Gregory_Taito

It is just a rainbow with 8 colors, it's not the pride flag though.


Mlemily69

Location is Israel for anybody that wants to know


GwenorHannah

Oh damn that’s surprising


BloodyJourno

Israel has their performative acceptance down just as well as the U.S. does


Mlemily69

Yea, theres flags everywhere and "love is love" on some stores around my area


Leslie1211

Love is love! (except for Palestinians)

Yeah we know? It's just nice to see it

lapizlazulistar

Its because Microsoft have deep ties to Israel who are currently perpetuating genocide against Palestinians. It was irony


Present_Half_9398

Im a bit behind in the news, what did Palenstine do?


duartes07

exist


Present_Half_9398

Uhhh...? I'm guessing palenstine passed a transphobic/homophobic law?


CleverSpaceWombat

Palestine can't really pass any laws. They basically live in the world's largest concentration camps controlled by Israel (backed and supported by the USA.) That's the reason why Israel has a problem with them existing. They are on land they want.


Present_Half_9398

Ohhhhh.. Thanks for the explanation. I hate how the USA will support literally anyone as long as they bow down to them..


NotBoolean

The comment > Love is love! (except for Palestinians) Is mostly likely aimed at the idea that Israel will support pride and talk about how we should love one and other while launching brutal attacks on Palestine. [Here is a short BBC article on the conflict.](https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-44124396) [This video ](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRYZjOuUnlU&vl=en) goes deeper into the history.


Present_Half_9398

Oh that's fucked up..


jannemannetjens

No they're just existing in a place Israel is colonizing, hence "love is love" doesn't apply to them according to Israel.


ShalamiBoii

ignore the downvotes if you genuinely didn’t know what is happening in palestine, people may think that you were being rude


Present_Half_9398

I genuinely have no clue


TheMoutonDemocrate

The answer is nothing compared to what the us is doing but it may be a bit political


MysteriousMoose4

Call me a hypocrite but in a world where we can still get legally executed for loving someone in several countries and where our existence itself is still illegal in 35% of the world... I'll take *all* the rainbow-coloured capitalism any day, I'll have "love is love" on fucking *everything*. Is it hypocritical? Absolutely. Are there better companies to support? Always (and please do!). But I'm still going to let every little damn rainbow flag in this world brighten my day because places that have to worry about rainbow capitalism are unfortunately still the luckiest 20-30% of the world. It absolutely is important to support LGBTQ businesses and corporations that actually donate to LGBTQ organizations over those that only change their logo to be a rainbow... but man, it will never not make me smile.


StagCodeHoarder

I’m with this. It’s odd to see lgbt attack progress.


Pile00

Sorry but Fuck corporations, especially the GAFAM


chewchewtwain

Rainbow capitalism. They don’t care about us.


Tenshinen

No corporation does. They inherently cannot care about anything except profit. Being marketed to is the closest you're gonna get in terms of acceptance from a corporation.


chewchewtwain

No banks, corporations or cops at pride. The first pride was a riot, not the capitalist cash grab it’s become today. So many people are so easily fooled by rainbow flags being a sign of acceptance. These companies don’t care about you, in fact, most donate MILLIONS of dollars to anti-gay politicians, to block bills that grant us more freedoms and rights. I really wish people weren’t so fucking gullible.


Fandrir

Pride is kinda the easiest, most low effort/risk virtue signalling you can do these days in the west. Maybe they could go for something with a little more risk, like confronting china about comitting a holocaust or something. Companies are rarely the first, but jump on the train when the hardest fights are over, carried out by unruly individuals.


Ashilikia

Microsoft is a huge company. There are thousands of LGBT+ people who work there who are part of the employee LGBT+ group. Often times those groups are responsible for at least some of the showing of pride during pride month. I would wager that, yes, some employees (including folks who are LGBT+ themselves) really do care.


chewchewtwain

Individual employees may care, the corporation as a whole, does not give a fuck, they likely don’t even care about the lgbtq+ people working for them.


kodicraft4

Yes that's how corporations work, glad you figured it out genius


chewchewtwain

What was the point of this comment exactly? I’m curious.


kodicraft4

Congratulating you for pointing out something that absolutely nobody has ever thought about


chewchewtwain

Aaah. To be a sarcastic asshole. Got it.


Confused-Engineer18

I challenge them to keep it up after Prins month


Plant20056

Thats nice... its good to be positive


RoundCat

As long as their money keeps going to anti-lgbt politicians, FUCK EM! Fuck them for appropriating our symbols and our colors. Fuck them feigning support! Fuck them for tricking us out of our money! Fuck them for making bleeding heart liberals think they are being helpful by giving them money. And SINCERELY Fuck them for using that money to restrict our rights and threaten our existence! I hate every single one of these wolves!


user_5554

At leat we don't need to keep track of the start and end of June, we can just look at any major company building/social media acc.


[deleted]

I have nothing against this. But these companies aren’t really allies they’re just doing it for profit.


Anarcho-Biscuit491

They don't actually care


AgitatedPerspective9

Itd be a lot prettier if it wasnt just a marketing strategy


moonyxpadfoot

Okay, now that's commitment.


Judgemental_Aardvark

The amount of pandering they do... I keep getting emails about "DID YOU KNOW THAT WE L O V E LGBTQIA+ PEOPLE? THATS AWESOME BUY OUR STUFF" I am a microsoft fanperson but god the pandering needs to stop


ShalamiBoii

now most companies don’t do that...
