CHIPMAN, N.B. — The man behind a New Brunswick village’s straight-pride flag says he and his supporters are considering legal action or a political challenge of the municipal officials who took it down.

“There’s a lot of people angry over the flag being taken down. The same as if the gay pride people would be angry if their flag was taken down,” Glenn Bishop said in an interview Tuesday.

“We’re not done. We’re going to regroup and see what’s next.”

Bishop, a retired welder, insisted he is not the least bit anti-gay but is simply proud to be straight, and doesn’t understand why Chipman village officials removed the flag after a single day.

Bishop had watched Sunday as Mayor Carson Atkinson and others gathered to raise the flag, which shows the symbols for female and male on a field of black and white stripes.

But Bishop returned the next day as it was removed in the midst of a public outcry. Comments had poured in on the village’s Facebook page from residents and neighbours criticizing the flag as harmful towards the LGBT community.

    this is what you all sound like

    Nobody cared about the idea of “straight pride” until gay pride was a thing. You lot were the ones who labelled us as “other” but now that we feel we can be proud of who we are you’re upset about being left out.
    You get your pride flag when you’ve had to fight for your right to exist, survive, and love for hundreds of years.
    Until then, shut up and leave the pride to the LGBT+ people.

      Of course no one cared until gay pride, it when your lot started attacking the existence of marriage, straight people a persons right to participate in your choice of a life. You have attacked the idea of freedom for just equality but forgot that without freedom you lose freedom for everyone.
