[QUOTE=J!NX;48708525]At least they are being supportive of those that need it[/QUOTE] Blue and purple chips on the bag look weird as hell. Multicolored chip dust on the controllers!
Here's a thing I don't get - why do homosexuals get colours for a symbol? It makes no sense.
[QUOTE=cheetahben;48708572]I'm gay and I think this is stupid Tired of big corporations trying to look socially progressive for the sake of selling shit[/QUOTE] They're only available if you donate $10 to the itgetsbetter foundation. Its in the article. Its still silly but jesus its $10 for a bag of chips, based on donations. They all sold out already so thats a fuckload of donations. Why is this is an issue? And is reading the article or pasting the relevant portion in the op really [I]that[/I] much work?

To those of you saying "ew gross!!!" Its pretty much just another take on rainbow goldfish [IMG]http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/18200000/color-rainbow-goldfish-crackers-18283139-500-500.jpg[/IMG]
is this seriously just a organization dedicated to telling people "hey you gay/trans? dont worry bout bad people it gets better. heres some doritos" [url]http://www.itgetsbetter.org/pages/about-it-gets-better-project/[/url] No Suicide prevention plans??? No Community Help??? Just telling people stories and telling them it gets better???? for what purpose?????? edit: read up on their TOS, they basically own your stories if you tell them through this site. The "Get help" tab is just stuff you can easily google in your local area and some various suicide hotlines that are already established before this orgs existence this whole org just seems wrong for some reason.

There are some good organizations and if this is the group that is needed to extend reach of LGBT support then that's okay if [I]they're[/I] not the best.

Am I doing this right? What was your intended context?
[QUOTE=cheetahben;48708572]I'm gay and I think this is stupid Tired of big corporations trying to look socially progressive for the sake of selling shit[/QUOTE] its literally in the first line of the quote are people skipping the entire OP now? [quote]Starting today, rainbow-colored Doritos inspired by the LGBT Pride flag will be available [b]to donors of the It Gets Better Campaign[/b], a nonprofit that seeks to provide hope to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, snack maker Frito-Lay announced today in a news release.[/quote]
[QUOTE=paindoc;48710216]Clever retorts, lack of capitilization, very facepunch? Am I doing this right? What was your intended context?[/QUOTE] discontent with the short sightedness of the supply, similar to gripes with Nintendo of America's first-hour out-of-stock-forever preorders of course they don't owe me anything but that doesn't mean i can't criticize it, and you are ridiculous for over-analysing that how many people would be donating to the charity had supplies not run out the first day?
why is the fact that they're cool ranch way at the bottom of the bag where most people won't see??
I wanna try these just because.
[QUOTE=cheetahben;48708572]I'm gay and I think this is stupid Tired of big corporations trying to look socially progressive for the sake of selling shit[/QUOTE] this it feels like slapping a rainbow on anything is an 'insta-humanitarian' card to a lot of these companies
[QUOTE=geogzm;48710638]this it feels like slapping a rainbow on anything is an 'insta-humanitarian' card to a lot of these companies[/QUOTE] It's probably more along the lines of cashing in on a movement. LGBT supporters are more likely to buy LGBT themed stuff and that's a potential market.
[QUOTE=Untouch;48710321]why is the fact that they're cool ranch way at the bottom of the bag where most people won't see??[/QUOTE] So uninformed/non observant people think its a new flavor or some kind of variety pack(because its multi colored), maybe?
Ah, the shit we consume.
Thanks to this the coworker who formerly hated me for being gay now accepts me as a person. Every time a bag is sold, another homophobe changes his ways. This is truly inspiring.

It was late. Whatever. pretty sure we bicker like old people but you're still cool
don't be so grumpy y'all
[QUOTE=SteakStyles;48710742]So uninformed/non observant people think its a new flavor or some kind of variety pack(because its multi colored), maybe?[/QUOTE] given you can only get them by ordering online, and the profits are going to charity, I don't see an iota of a problem with how this is

[QUOTE=Mingebox;48711440]Rainbow goldfish taste pretty bad, actually.[/QUOTE] They taste the same as regular goldfish. I literally have a bag of rainbow goldfish and regular goldfish in my room right now. The rainbow ones just have food colouring added.
[QUOTE=Lium;48710067]Here's a thing I don't get - why do homosexuals get colours for a symbol? It makes no sense.[/QUOTE] it's not 'for homosexuals'. it has many colours to represent the many sexual orientations and genders out there not that you would listen to that anyways [editline]18th September 2015[/editline] the same way the ~beloved union~ has a flag with many saltires and crosses. it represents the land within
[QUOTE=Mr Nagasaki;48711483]They taste the same as regular goldfish. I literally have a bag of rainbow goldfish and regular goldfish in my room right now. The rainbow ones just have food colouring added.[/QUOTE] I got some rainbow ones recently, and they tasted distinctly different. Had an almost vegetable-y taste to them.
[QUOTE=cheetahben;48708572]I'm gay and I think this is stupid Tired of big corporations trying to look socially progressive for the sake of selling shit[/QUOTE] Frito-Lay has been doing LGBT positive stuff for many years. These aren't even for sale, either. You get them for donating $10 or more to It Gets Better.

[QUOTE=Mingebox;48711553]I got some rainbow ones recently, and they tasted distinctly different. Had an almost vegetable-y taste to them.[/QUOTE] when I was in fifth grade, there was a thing where we're were all given a piece of edible paper that had a (benign) chemical on it, some of us just tasted paper, and some of us tasted the most bitter thing on the planet. they all had the same chemical on it. maybe it's the same kind of shit with rainbow goldfish and their food coloring
