To be fair, Twister is a good way to discover your sexual orientation.

last minute cheap-out or well intentioned ingenuity?  the comments suggest that Brighton is in itself context, which makes me curious about Brighton.

It could be their first attempt at such a thing.  Maybe they've been a homophobe their whole life, but have finally joined the rest of us and they're making an attempt.  Maybe they met their first gay person recently.  (At least the first gay person they actually knew was gay). Maybe a son or daughter came out to them recently.   It's a major adjustment in thought and life for some people, parents especially.   You have to love them for their moves in the right direction, even when they're a little off-base.  I'd give this guy the benefit of a doubt.

Someone could be a good gay neighbor and give them an actual flag.  :D

OK, this made me guffaw, then immediately go "Hmm."

Strip Twister (if you fall you have to remove an article of clothing and take another drink, winner is the last one with any clothing left) was always one of my favorite games. Best played with 2-3 very drunk couples.

Notable quotes during my last Strip Twister game,

"Your boob is in my face!"
"Get your nuts off my back"
"When was the last time you shaved your balls?"

Good times.

Brighton, a seaside resort on the south coast of England, is generally agreed to be the unofficial "gay capital" of the UK, with records pertaining to LGBT history dating back to the early 19th century.

I've got three gay daughters out of five.  I also have a HUGE American flag.  Perhaps I should put up a pride flag, they might like it.  Huh, never even crossed my mind before now.

Makes me wonder why the owners of Twister haven't made a Rainbow Twister Pride Editiontm. It would piss of the Trumphumpers, but I don't imagine they buy many Twister games, anyway.

A version with more colors and smaller dots should have been a thing by now. The 90s would have been a perfect time when everything went extreme.

As a gay kid (or even as a gay adult), knowing your parents love you and have your back is one of the most empowering feelings in the world!

Scene: Office Supply Store

Store Owner: "Crap, its pride month and we have nothing to show our support"

Store Worker:  "How about these?"

Store Owner: "Close enough. Put a bunch on the front door."

I hope that during all the hulabaloo and commotion over man on man ass sex, which im sure is great, we dont lose sight of the original gangster dick hole, the female pussy. I think its tops.

It's easy to laugh at displays like this but remember for every business that displays a gay pride flag in "support" of the LGBTQ community that there are many businesses that would never fly one because they are afraid they'd offend and lose customers from the religious hate groups.

As such, I won't hate on the businesses flying the pride flag because they think it'll increase their businesses because its better than the ones that refuse to pick a side because they don't want to offend anyone.

I would say this is deliberate, even if it wasn't in Brighton.

Right? They hung something with a lot of color on it. That's support, just not to the level of actually buying a pride flag. Which, who gets that money?

Half-assed participation is a kind of participantion.

I'm not going to fault people for trying. We're still in a pandemic and someone may be trying to show their support only when the mother-in-law is out at her Klan meetings.

Both daughters and the wife are gay. I'm regretting now getting rid of Twister.

Out of curiosity, is it randomly distributed by age, or is it the three youngest or three oldest?

Not that I think that means anything, I just have a buddy who's one of 7 and he and his two youngest brothers are gay, but their 4 older brothers are all (AFAIK) straight.

You know, I think there is a very real risk of that. I mean, only like 85-90% of people are straight, so its pretty easy to see how they'd be ignored by society.

Thanks everybody. I have laughed my ass off at this thread and I really needed to. Now I can go about my day.

Happy Pride!
The Twister people should be taking notes. Really.
