Here we go with the pink triangles again

People are so goddamned weird these days...

Tens of thousands of Royal Bank Canada employees are being asked by bank management to display the Rainbow Triangle on their work desks. In early September, RBC employees arrived at the office to find the directive on their PCs. "The RBC Safe Space (program) is a visible, non-threatening way to show that your desk, cubicle or office is a "safe place" for gay men, bisexuals, transgendered and lesbians," employees were told in the first edition of the bank’s online newsletter, Rainbow Space...

...Although it has a Core Value policy in place, RBC does not seem to have moved any other vulnerable groups under the corporate umbrella of its Safe Space Program.
Rumour has it the Royal Bank were also going to celebrate watersports, but the focus group objected to service charges being raised for carpet shampooing and damaged keyboards.

Hopefully, RBC will also direct their employees to display crucifixes, the Koran, the Red Hand of Ulster, the Freedom Party Of Canada logo, the UAW logo, and of course, the Newfoundland flag! Those Newfies get a most undeserving hard time in this country. They should feel safe too, walking into an RBC branch in Toronto, far from St. Johns, don't you think?
