Are Rainbow Laces Liberating?

Everybody at the panel I’m listening to agrees that marketing sneakers with rainbow laces to kids is a gesture of a great social value because it somehow combats homophobia.

And I believe that homophobia is not about who buys what but about putting an end to job discrimination and housing / healthcare discrimination. 

You can’t buy freedom from homophobia. You’ve got to fight for it.
