A second day of the mandatory rainbow flag on my WordPress editor. At first, the status signaling was mildly amusing; the longer it lasts, the more awkward and funny it will get. Lots of companies are showing their gay pride, and no doubt feeling warmly sanctimonious about it. But life goes on. Still, you know the old joke about nobody wanting to be the first one to stop applauding at the end of one of Stalin’s speeches?
Listen up, WordPress. If you really care about gay rights, I’d better see that rainbow flag tomorrow. I mean, of course everybody expected it yesterday. If you’d just had it for one day, people might have thought you were just doing the bare minimum to keep the SJWs off your back. Which means that really having it up two days is the bare minimum to avoid people thinking you don’t really care about gay rights. So if you really care about gay rights, you’ll go above the bare minimum and have it tomorrow. But now that I’ve pointed this out to you, I think tomorrow is the bare minimum, and you’d better exceed that. Most important of all, though, you’d better keep an eye on other companies’ websites and keep rainbowing at least as long as they do, because if you don’t, we’ll know that you don’t really care about gay rights as much as those other companies do, and you’ll be scheduled to be eaten.
