Almost 40 years ago my wife bought a 'black' doll for our daughter along with 'white' ones. This was to teach that we do not care about color but that character is what counts. A few years ago my wife bought a rainbow striped teddy bear because it was beautiful and to say that ALL of the teddy bears in her collection are special .

I wouldn't put a FSM sticker on my rig, or one of those little fishies with feet, just because I don't care for the potential interactions, though I enjoy it when I see other people with them on their rigs.

I imagine something like this happening, but clearly these guys went too far

I have no numbers stickers or flags. Guess I like to "sneak" up on people at will. I must be generic.

Seriously go with your instincts. It was very discouraging to hear that story of the two Dodger fans that beat up the Giant's fan because of his clothing. If it were me I would error on the side of caution. It's a rough world we live in, unfortunately.

We are all different, but the same.

Hi, this is quite a dilemma, dammed if you do and dammed if you don't. The only right answer is if you want a rainbow sticker on your vehicles do it. Maybe you should put a rainbow sticker in the middle of the window and a Sheriff's star on each side. Confuse the confused.

Hi, RellikJM; welcome to the Forums!

You have a beautiful new Airstream - and you get to decide what you want to do to it to make it uniquely yours. If it makes you smile to see a rainbow sticker on it, then go for it! If you want to reupholster the interior in neon plaid, well, it's your trailer! Just because it's not my cup of tea doesn't mean I get to have any say in your decorating scheme.

Since you have a rainbow on your car, I'm sure you're already aware of the comments that it will bring. It may start up a few conversations, and might keep one or two from happening at all. In that case, it's their loss.

Have a wonderful time camping in your new trailer (please post some pictures when you have the chance), and hopefully we'll get to meet you someday!

There is something the Wally Byam creed about following a rainbow to it's end.

"To strive endlessly to stir the venturesome spirit that moves you to follow a rainbow to its end… and thus make your travel dreams come true."

It really depends on your comfort level, if it seems right then do it. As others said, it's your trailer! JB

I live in Rainbow Planation (when not on the road), my address is Rainbow dr.
Maybe you should consider joining the Escapee's RV club where diversity is encouraged not frowned upon. Just a thought

Rainbow stickers.

I never understood the need to advertise this. Its one thing to be confident in yourself and live your life how you want and to its fullest, but life is not a competition, nor a extended advertising campaign. If your searching for a soulmate, put yourself on a dating site. Airstreams are for camping and living in, not personal marketing tools. I say get over it, and your character and the way you live is what shows who you are.

If indeed you just want to attract other people with similar lifestyles, why not have a sticker made that says "I'm Gay, check me out". Seem more effective then a rainbow sticker.

I'm not judging your lifestyle at all, I just find the whole sticker thing amusing. Maybe I said too much, but you asked for opinions, and so you shall get them.

Hi, I just can't do that; I have to have my AIR FORUMS stickers with me when I travel.

Interesting topic. Here in Northern CA we would not think twice about that, but if you will be camping through the deep south (stereotype warning here) then perhaps you can find a static cling rainbow and remove where/when you think there could be an issue. Our recent NorCal rally welcomes everyone, as FreshAir will verify. IMHO, we Airstream owners are more flexible/tolerant, and any "issues" would be elsewhere with SOB's. <g>

I'm an uber-conservative Southerner (much to the chagrin of my liberal, Canadian wife), and I have to imagine that at most places you're not going to have a problem. If anyone does start anything, it's mostly just to see if they can get a rise out of you. As a University of Texas ex, duly noted by the Longhorn sticker affixed to my truck, I have gotten quite a few comments no matter where I have traveled.

Some folks just want to see if they can get a reaction out of you. If it's not the rainbow sticker, then it's something else. If you don't give in, then they don't win. For what it's worth... whenever I get my ol' girl up and running, I'd be proud to camp next to you any day. As long as you don't mind the blaring country music and a fridge full of Lone Star Beer. Yeee-haw!

BTW, I'm with SafariSS.. Where do I get the "HETERO" sticker?!?!
