  • What Is Being Gay Taboo

    they were supportive of LGBT+ causes, and had colored rainbow Doritos to show their pride/support. The thing is, before gay marriage was legalized in June 2015 and it became a mainstream thing to make everything rainbow colored to support and celebrate the ruling, Doritos had no history of being supportive of the LGBT+ community.

Sounds like a smart business plan to me. As well, because making everything rainbow colored became mainstream because of the Supreme Court ruling, you have to wonder if the company was making the rainbow Doritos simply because it was the thing to do, and because if they didn’t find some way to show their support of the movement, they would be heavily criticized. This is similar to what the churches who claim to support the LGBT+ community. The…
