Oh FFS.

If i understand tfa correctly, upon being told the prism was too gay, whoever designed that re-selected each shade "to match the colors on the state flag"

Tbqh, its brilliant in its malicious compliance

So they weren't refractive to changing it?

This would be quite embarrassing, if Montana were a real place.  I wonder what kind of logo the library has at Narnia State University.
 
2022-10-06 10:19:28 PM  
I don't get it.

The first logo was gay?

Umm, you may say so, but whatever.

$300,000 in design fees.

I guess the design firm is owned by the Governor's sister?

I mean, does NBC have to change their logo, too?
 
2022-10-06 10:21:12 PM  
And clearly they should have used a pair of zircon-encrusted tweezers for a logo.
 
2022-10-06 10:21:17 PM  
$300,000? Montana could have gotten a second stop light with that.

Yes, if there's one thing that loud homophobes are known for, it's their incredible attenuation to subtlety.

I was going to read tfa, but my eyes fixed on those fabulous colors and I instantly turned so gay I just had to go out looking for a dick to suck. Oh well!
 
2022-10-06 10:24:26 PM  
So a rainbow of colours is seen as too gay?

Does it rain in Montana?

Yes, but you need to drive 300 miles to get to it.

Somehow I suspect my local Goodwill has more books than Montana.

"...think that an organization that stores Montana's GIS information is secretly sending subliminal support to the LGBTQ community"

Well duh.  It's not a secret.  Re-doing the logo was a waste of money.  I mean, it's right there in the name: Gay Information System.  You would think they would have changed that instead of the color, but I guess I'm not a level 5 bigot or whatever you need to be to see when the gays are hiding their agenda in plain sight.

Step 1) Start a "Patriotic" graphics design firm
Step 2) Start a controversy about a logo being "gay woke"
Step 3) Submit a new "Patriotic Christian" design, which is the same design with one color being a lighter shade
Step 4) $Profit$

Yeah, good point.  I thought Montana only had 5 people with 20 guns apiece living there.

Montana has more bookstores per capita than any other state.

They aren't going in a library, and they sure as hell  aren't going in a gay library.

I put this shirt on, and  I turned gay.  I had to take it off, because it was so confusing.

Say it right.

They should have included this quote in the article in response to the first designrejection:

Kevin Hamm, president of Montana Pride responded to the commission's rejection and suggested their reaction reflects a greater issue:
"If you're going to have a problem with a logo and the first thing that you think is 'Oh, it's got bright colors and that's a little too queer for me,' you're a bigot and you have issues," Hamm told the AP. "Don't throw my community under the bus just because all of a sudden rainbows make you think everything's gay."

Alright. Well.....

Unfortunately today, every color has a meaning and all the meanings are decisive.

If you make it red its MAGA, if you make it blue its liberal, if you make it a rainbow its gay, you make it green you're an idiot.
 
2022-10-06 10:44:34 PM  
Must have been a real hard day for that graphic designer.

"They want different colors, they say the rainbow is too gay."

"OK, fine. I flip a coin for each new rainbow color. Heads I move 2 Pantone colors back. Tails I move 2 Pantone colors forward."

"Brilliant!"

I love that christians are rejecting rainbows, god's covenant symbol.

uh, they're exactly the same picture?
 
2022-10-06 10:53:12 PM  
The reason for the $300,000 design fees is probably entirely legitimate. No doubt the client demanded endless "meetings with the manager" to give their "input".

Don't blame the design firm for charging their hourly rate.

Some people wake up in the morning with their first thought being what the absolute dumbest shiat they could involve themselves in.

I feel like the new one as a bit more of an edgey kink to it.  And that's ok.

I popped in to make a similar comment. I'll just ride out on my horse that's about this big.

Montana will make an excellent National Park, no senators, no congressmen, no say. Just beautiful landscape with access at several Ranger Stations with limited parking.
