I’m so sorry for taking so long to respond. I read your reply a few times and I wanted to respond once I had a moment away from all the “noise” of the world.
Well, I don’t necessarily see it as something to be earned, but I understand why you’d feel that way. It’s really about being supportive and making an effort to understand. Unfortunately, not everyone is equipped with open-mindedness, so we can only hope that they’ll at least coexist. Those who support the LGBTQ+ community most certainly have the right to be apart of the discussion(s).
Regarding the LGBTQ+ Pride flag(s) (there’s actually more than one version), the colors and what they represent basically coincide with each other. Blue/Indigo symbolizes Harmony/Serenity; so, for anyone to deem an ally unworthy of participating in LGBTQ+ discussions/events, is to go against what they claim to stand for.
I appreciate your consideration, but you don’t need to feel upset. What matters is that your support exists, regardless of whether or not you were/are vocal about it.
