Amazon shoppers just learned they could buy a “Straight Heterosexual Pride Wavy Gold Plated Flag Pin Badge” on the website, courtesy of the seller 1000 Flags, for $8—and the reactions spanned from mockery to disgust. The response caused the U.K. – based seller to end the sales of this item from his website and from Amazon.
Some people left 1-star reviews describing the product as “homophobic” and “anti-LGBT,” amongst other remarks. One user asked , “Does this come with a KKK membership?”
I first thought the Straight Pride pin was a stack of insipid baloneys and pseudo-cheeses.

So there's a #StraightPride flag is there? Not only does it look a bit like a stool health colour chart, but it also has non-straight lines, which the rainbow flag doesn't. It has to be irony doesn't it? pic.twitter.com/sev8SRDVRv
