Big Gay Rhino

Just got the following from LJ:

The Purple Rhino Charity V-Gift

An extra-special LiveJournal v-gift comes rustling through the brush this month. Join us in welcoming back the Purple Rhino, an early, forgotten symbol of the gay rights movement. Proceeds will benefit Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians & Gays (PFLAG), a 200,000-strong support network with over 500 affiliates, dedicated to helping create a society in which all GLBT persons can safely and comfortably participate in the institutions of family, school, employment and faith.

Seems pretty fucking ridiculous to me. There are so many other symbols out there that you have to wonder why the hell anyone would resurrect a big gay rhino. The god damn thing looks more like an unfortunate My Little Pony expansion doomed to failure. And I will call you, Prince Gayhorn, leader of all the My Little Rhinos! Epic fail all around.
