    LGBTQ activists in cities across the country are calling for city officials to create “rainbow crosswalks” to “honor the LGBTQ community.”

    “Rainbow crosswalks” are public crosswalks that have been repainted in rainbow colors, which have been adopted by the LGBTQ community as a symbol of greater acceptance and rights for LGBTQ causes and beliefs.

    Activists are urging local lawmakers to create the crosswalks through the use of petitions. Currently, one of the cities targeted is Chicago. A petition is now circulating there that has garnered more than 4,000 signatures. According to the petition’s text, “Some cities, like San Francisco, have made LGBTQ people feel more at home by creating permanent rainbow crosswalks to honor the LGBTQ community. … This is one small thing that could be done to signal to one of the most marginalized communities in the country that we are here for them, we see them, and we support them

    No, they want us to bend over forward. Get it right.

    And my response to them both online and irl is "I don't care". You would be amazed at how often three words shuts them down.

    I like both ideas. Maybe they can alternate, depending on location.

    If one refused to walk on that, would it be a "hate crime"? Or vice versa? Suppose one could see both sides of that perverse argument.
