according to the trans flags creator the white stripe actually represented "intersex, those transitioning, neutral or undefined".

She also created the flag because she had just finished serving in the US Navy and felt such a strong national affinity and respect to the US flag that she wanted trans people to feel that same feeling.

all in all the reasons behind the trans flag are not great, and she most definitely chose baby colours because she liked baby colours for reasons.

personally i wish she'd gone for a pastel lilac that complimented the blue and pink, rather than the white.


@mxsiege I can see why white is a problem, but basing the color that includes non-binary people on the binary colors is a different problem

@tekniklr i mean basis the two other colours on baby pink and baby blue is also a problem, they're all problems.
