Basically if you’re losing sleep over the fact you don’t like a Q* or you think there are too many groups represented on a flag then I’d like to congratulate you on your comfortable life and suggest you put the energy you have for arguing against representation into something more useful. If it doesn’t hurt anyone beyond making you personally uncomfortable that is decidedly a YOU problem. *I am aware of the “queer was used as a slur against me and thus it’s painful for me to see” but your discomfort can be healed through reclamation of language and community support, rather than force others to be uncomfortable and disincluded because you don’t like the way they refer to themself. I am not aware of any valid arguments on why we should not add black, brown, trans, intersex and whatever future styleguide updates come to the progress flag.
