Genevieve Gluck on the Similarity of the Trans Flag to Paedophile Insignia

This is a very short video of about one and a half minutes. It’s an extract from a longer talk by Genevieve Gluck on the YouTube channel for the feminist organisation, Women’s Declaration International, discussing the trans flag and its similarity to the logos and symbols used by paedophile organisations. The flag was invented by Monica Helms, former Richard Hogge. It has baby blue and pink stripes, symbolising male and female. The same colours are used in the various paedophile symbols uncovered by feminist researchers into these vile organisations. These symbols date from 1997, before Helms’ invention of the trans flag. Gluck states that there’s no evidence to link these symbols with the flag, but their similarity is too close to be coincidental. The video shows the paedophile symbols, all of which misleading suggest that what they stand for is somehow genuinely good and loving, whereas it’s one of the very heinous of crimes.

I think it’s quite possible that the similarity between the trans flag and those of these vile outfits is coincidental. For over a century the established colours representing gender in western culture have been blue for a boy, pink for a girl. It’s therefore entirely reasonable that these would appear on a flag representing gender and gender fluidity. However, that said, there is an issue with using the trans flag because of its similarity to those of the child abusers. My concern is that, whatever Helms’ intentions, paedophile organisations would play on the similarity to confuse people and falsely present themselves as a respectable part of the trans or LGBTQ+ movement, when they are absolutely nothing of the sort.

    Is it true that the Victorians had the colours the other way around; blue for girls and pink for boys? In this case I think it must be an unfortunate coincidence.

      I don’t know, but from what I gather there was some opposition to the current colour scheme. I think someone said that blue was far too violent a colour for baby boys. I’ve also heard that pink and orange were originally associated with masculinity. Apparently it comes from the red coats used by the British army. The dye wasn’t colourfast, so over time they’d fade to pink or orange, which thus became the colours of ferocious fighting men.

        But not to be confused with THE Orange Men! Or more latterly the derogatory American expression for a Socialist or Communist (or anyone with liberal views) a “Pinko Commie bed-wetter”. Then there was singer Donovan’s ‘Mellow Yellow’, not to be confused with cowardice one assumes, and also his “Blue is the colour of the things I do…”, or Bowie’s “Blue, blue, electric blue…”, neither of which presumably have gender-specific connotations nor expressions of allegiance to the Tories! Let’s face it, life is a veritable kaleidoscope. 😎

    Eesh! That must be just a *most unfortunate* coincidence. Except no doubt *certain celebrities* will try and jump onto that particular bandwagon.
