Seriously you don't see a difference between blue jeans and torches? And you're miffed about rainbows? Who's trying to stop you from wearing your fabulous rainbow **** man? So it is just a symbol but it can mean different things to different people. So it only means hexing OU to you, but its loaded with other meanings to other people, which yeah most of the country was happy to put behind us, until unfortunately white nationalists reminded everyone of with a racist torchlight march on another university's campus. I hope its only temporary and when the white nationalists dog's *** day in the sun is over, we can make it ours again.
