    How about a bunch of drones dropping plastic Army guys with parachutes with dealer advertising? Is that littering? What if you do it at a parade? What if it's a homo parade and the parachute is rainbow, I bet they let you then.

    Yes and the corporate chicanery and charade with the "rainbowization" of logos will finally stop (more crap).

    Without corporate virtue signaling how will I know that LinkedIn as a company doesn't hate gay people?

    *This deserves it's own thread, sorry for derailing it.

    I like that "corporate virtue signaling." There's much assumption in that I believe. Not everyone agrees with the lifestyle. Corporate shills and political goons putting their fingers in the air to see which way the wind blows, they don't truly give a shit or realize the business they lose because of it. *see Hillary getting smashed in electorals.

    Survey shows 72% of LGBTQ+ community believe their representation is tokenistic

    Interesting article, but the call to action there is, “brands need to do more to make LGBTQ+ members feel more valued.”

    I find myself going the other way. I want companies participating less in those conversations. I don’t want to know that Chick-Fil-A’s corporate values are anti-LGBT (I don’t even know if they are, but Dan Cathy’s controversial comments a few years ago come to mind) when all I need from Chick-Fil-A is a fucking chicken sandwich. Companies are trying to officially contribute to conversations that belong to the general discourse, and it comes off as very disingenuous.

    Can't argue that, you're right.
