LGBT flag triple take

As I walked in I noticed the LGBT rainbow flag flying over the humanities building. My immediate happy reaction was: good!

Instantly this was followed by a second, unhappy thought as I reflected that these days, flying the rainbow flag is about more than just LGBT rights. Equally, it’s a statement of which side you are on, which public figures you approve of and which you disapprove of. How depressing.

And then my thoughts took a third, bitter turn. Who’s to blame for polarising us? It’s Trump and the Republicans.

All this in five seconds upon seeing that rainbow flying in the breeze.
