Rainbow pedestrian crossings painted on roads in the Marais district of Paris for Saturday’s Gay Pride march will become a permanent feature, the city’s mayor has decided after one of them was tagged with homophobic graffiti.

Several pedestrian crossings had been decorated the rainbow colors of the LGBT movement in preparation for the annual Gay Pride march that will take place in Paris on Saturday.

But some people obviously took offense to the move, and one of the crossings had been painted over with homophobic insults daubed on the road.

The words “LGBT out of France” were painted on the road at the crossing at the junction of Rue des Archives and Rue de la Verrerie in the heart of the Marais, which is a neighborhood full of bars of restaurants that has long been popular with the city’s gay community and visitors.

“Today I am making a symbolic decision: we will make the rainbow pedestrian crossings that we installed in the Marais permanent,” said Hidalgo adding that it would send a “positive signal “and would be a “welcome message” for visitors to the neighborhood. …

Paris has to know, no street art is ever truly ‘permanent’.
All it would take would be a few loosely held gallon cans of black or white oil based paint to instantly erase those lines. “Oops! I did it again!”

“Homophobic graffiti” is usually done by the homosexuals.

France is near ten percent Mooslimb now.

Just wait, another twenty years and the homos in France will be treated like the homos in Iran.

I’m sure that in 20 years when they are hanging homos from cranes and tossing them off the Eiffel Tower it will somehow be all our fault.

Paint a depiction of Mohammed on the rainbows, then step back and watch the show.

Sodomites and lesbians dont own rainbow decorations.

Maybe a plate full of sh1t and vomit and urine is a better symbol, with pus and diseased organs.

LGBLT advocates probably faked the grafitti and got exactly what they wanted by doing so.

I find it hard to believe that “homophobes” would write graffiti against gays but use the officially sanctioned PC term for them in it.

No wonder the French were upset.

When everyone was displaying "rainbow flags" on their FB pages to support some homo pity event I can't even recall, I put this up as my page pic.

I don't think anyone even "got it".

Kinda makes you wonder where one would find feces in that many different colors.

Well, I have no problem with rainbow crosswalks; my only question is where do the regular people cross?

I’m sure the ever increasing Muslim population was pleased with the pro LGTXNB support.

Fruit Loops was the 1960’s way of saying “Snowflake” or crazier than a bedbug.
