    Unbelievable. It's very hard to have a dialogue or debate against someone who uses dogma and cliches to defend a position.

    The colored jars are beautiful.

    Hmmm. I guess the homeowner could erect a 12 foot statue of a rainbow draped tie-dyed hippie Zeus aka Percy Jackson humor (Grecco-Roman Polytheistic Paganism anyone?) made out of paper-mache in her front yard.

    But that would be tacky. OTOH, Zeus was Greek. And ancient Greece was quite tolerant. (Not so with ancient Rome, a very homophobic place that unfortunately passed its tendencies to many subsequent cultures).

    A fat representation of the mother goddess to guard the house could be nice, that would be Pagan and matrilineal.

    20 Rainbow Brite garden statues? (Ugh. Super tacky, but hey, kid-friendly, right?!).

    I'm kind of partial to that picture of a unicorn with rainbow poop.

    Uh, maybe you shouldn't ask me? A note like that just makes me want to offend.

    Relentlessly Gay

    The funny part (to me) is she's not gay to begin with, just crafty/artistic and loves rainbows.

    Her neighbor needs THIS in her life - and I think that she protests far too much

    I just got back from the Little Red Riding Hood Ride In Utah- an all womens' ride where the guys from the support clubs dress up as wolves of Little Red Riding Hoods- because of this years theme, this meant dance hall girls and the Big Bad Wolf as a sheriff wolf complete with 6 gun and tin start. Also several tall plains Indians with feathered headdress wandering around at the rest stops. As I was driving into Salt Lake city I encountered digital billboards one of which was a rainbow and a cartoon god saying "God loves Gays" which I was quite struck by.

    Of course if this lady really wanted to freak her neighbors she could always go for the pagan symbolism ( white craft) mixed in with her relentlessly gay and cheerful yard. I would think she would be on fairly safe round unless she lives in a Home owner association neighborhood where the lawn Nazis might object. I would wear a God loves gays t shirt or a relentlessly gay t shirt in a shot and I have made a contribution to her rood fund in the name of my son and his partner who are relentlessly gay and we love them dearly.

    Those billboards are great! It's a crowdfunded project by the Facebook God. I forget where the other one(s) are. He captioned the link to the story about the rainbow luminaries, "Time for another billboard." So cool you got to see it.

    I had forgotten this, but even on Ravelry (a knitting/crochet forum) they mentioned this when adding a rainbow flag to the logo.

    As far as that women's neighbor, the rainbow butterfly unicorn kitten just needs to pay her a visit for comfort :-)

    Long read but maybe the whole street will get rainbow kitten butterfly unicorn jar lanterns? ;-)
