Around 50 sets of traffic lights near busy Trafalgar Square had their “walk” and “green man” images replaced with the new designs in June to coincide with an annual Gay Pride Festival.
Officials said the seven different same-sex symbols were designed to show Transport for London’s “support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans diversity” in the capital.
I just really don’t see the point to this “raising awareness” stuff. Surely, by now, people are generally aware of the existence of gay people. And as for “showing support,” I don’t really get how this supports anyone, it looks more like Municipal Virtue Signaling.
Do you want to know why Britain is no longer a Global Power? This is why Britain is no longer a Global Power.
“If you think of yourselves as helpless and ineffectual, it is certain that you will create a despotic government to be your master. The wise despot, therefore, maintains among his subjects a popular sense that they are helpless and ineffectual.” – Frank Herbert, The Dosadi Experiment
“Liberalism believes people as a group need to take care of each other, because individuals are selfish, greedy and hateful. The arbiter of the collective is none other than government, who “equalizes” everything with wealth redistribution to people who couldn’t (or wouldn’t) fend for themselves.” – Courtney Kirchoff.
“Liberalism depends on a huge number of Americans being losers who can’t support themselves. The party’s very existence depends on there being a pool of serfs desperate for handouts distributed by Democrat overlords. If 90% of Americans were self-sufficient and refused to trade their dignity for a few scraps in the form of various welfare payouts, there would be no modern Democrat Party.” – Kurt Schlichter
