Eight Dollars + Shipping To Show You Just Don't Get It.
Online retail giant, Amazon, is currently selling a gold plated “Straight Pride” flag pin and you can guess that people are not exactly thrilled by it. Oh, at all.
Available on Amazon for $8.00, the “Straight Pride” flag pin is described on the site as hard enamel on a metal pin badge with butterfly clasp fixing. The flag colors range from black to white with an assortment of varying shades of beige in-between.
The item has also accumulated four overwhelmingly-negative reviews since the sell of the item went live earlier this week including one review that gave the item “One Star” and simply described the item as “terrible.”
The flag is being sold on behalf of 1000 Flags, which has over 20,000 items for sale on the popular online retailer. In sharp contrast, some of the other items that 1000 Flags currently sell in their online catalog include Pride rainbow flags, LGBT banners, badges, and more.
And Twitter, of course, is having a field day.
‘Straight Pride is seemingly as beige as most straight people’s personalities,’ Danny, a Twitter user said.
‘The irony of a straight pride flag being an eye shadow palette,’ Ken, another Twitter user said. ‘Why does the straight pride flag look like a Sephora ‘eye shadow for beginners’ sampler?’
Another said: ‘If I saw someone wearing that I’d assume they really like bacon or something."
