This Guy Tried To "Take Back The Rainbow" But Gay Twitter Said Hell No

Well that backfired spectacularly...
As we mentioned in a recent article, the rainbow became synonymous with the LGBTQ community when the late Gilbert Baker designed the rainbow flag back in 1978. It's since become a symbol for the LGBTQ community the world over and you'd think people are kinda used to the idea by now, right?
Think again. Meet Ken Ham, who is the president and founder of the Creation Museum, which is also home to a life-size Noah's Ark.
I must say that is a very impressive ark.
He recently tweeted out images of the ark adorned with rainbow lighting. Sounds like a nice idea until you realise Ken hoped to "take back" the rainbow.
"Who do the gays think they are? Coming over here, stealing our rainbows" etc...
Well, instead of demanding the rainbow is reserved for LGBTQ people only (it's not - we're happy to lend it out from time to time) the gays of Twitter decided to get even - by claiming the ark as one of their own and calling it "a queer icon".
It started off with a single tweet.

And then Twitter went WILD for it.
Will you have a gay animal couple in there?! Penguins are overplayed - I say make the dinosaurs you have in there gay! JurasSICK!— John Gidding (@JOHNGIDDING) July 20, 2017
The Babadook is babashook over #GayBoat.
the babadook and the #GayBoat are the lgbt icons we need and deserve— gorgeous hag (@ashaggreyjoy) July 20, 2017
It's true: boats are older and gayer than Judy Garland.
I checked the gay agenda and boats are definitely gay pic.twitter.com/aIDjP6BqUt— Ashley (@ashcech) July 20, 2017
