To be fair, anti-LGBT discrimination, just as anti-discrimination based on race or religion, is something anyone with more than a single brain cell would stand behind. But considering the other problems the city has, this has the appearance -- and note I said appearance -- of going for low-hanging fruit rather than addressing, say, violence, crime, or drugs.

Somehow I think you vastly overestimate how many people would wear flag merch vs. sports merch. But if you feel so strongly about it, why not spearhead a movement?

Also, I don't know what cities you visit, but I've been to Chicago at least 50 times and can count the number of people I saw wearing city flag merch on one hand. Can say the same for several other major cities.
