It was only a matter of time: someone was bound to have the brilliant idea to create a straight mock-off of the gay flag. What one can’t help noticing immediately is that the parody is just plain ugly. But, of course, it had to be. If the image of the rainbow, the full spectrum of visible light, is a symbol of natural beauty, an archetype even, its opposite would have to be as drab and hideous as possible. And they’ve done it! Granted, the color range had to be narrow to avoid looking “gay,” but they’ve managed to do the entire thing in various shades of beige! So in one fell swoop they’ve yielded both the entire color spectrum and good taste.
