Do rainbow flags increase profit?
Is our nation oppressing the LGBTQ+ population among us? Are we committing injustice against them? Are we failing to treat them as “created equal,” denying them “certain unalienable Rights,” such as “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”?
If not, why would a business feel obliged to flaunt its support of anyone’s sexuality in their storefront? What do the private lives of some people have to do with selling coffee? All things considered, will more or less people be willing to buy the product?
Remove the flag in question, and LGBTQ+ supporters and opponents alike would walk into the coffee house, spend some money, and leave again. Hang the flag, and all the store can possibly achieve is the loss of a few customers, who see the flag, disapprove, and find another place to buy coffee.
