Although, sadly, the field 'reporter' was a Brit who could not tell her arse toy from her ISIS.

Embarrassing.

RE: CNN unable to tell a butt plug flag from an ISIS flag at gay pride parade
I'm sorry, but personally I'd call it a stretch (giggity) to say that that "looks" like butt plugs and dildos. After Google image searching butt plugs and dildos (an interesting experience, let me tell you Big Grin) the outlines of the objects on that flag just aren't that recognizable as such, unless someone else has already told you that's what it is, or if you practically live in a sex shop and see this stuff all the time. Just sayin'.

Are all the letters made out of sex toys, or just some of them? Only 4 are even remotely recognizable to me, and the rest look more like something you'd see on a Rorschach test.

I don't get why people are blaming the reporter for this, though (except for her poorly-cropped photo). Sure, her mistake was funny, but at least she took the time to talk to some people at the parade about it instead of just snapping the photo and going "OMG, ISIS flag you guise!" (though from the sound of it, she really did only talk to like two people, people who were only tangentially part of the actual parade, lol). I do blame CNN, though, for reporting on something like this without actually knowing what it is yet.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

CNN is notorious for jumping on any band wagon that comes along. They suck at the first rule of journalism (check, verify, & confirm) and can't wait to blurt out News.

Must have been a slow news hour. Dodgy

This may seem like a reeeeeally stupid question but uhm: why didn't she just go up to the guy and ask him what the images on his flag were?

Gee, look at me ... I could be a journalist and I haven't even finished my morning coffee. Drinking Beverage

She probably didn't want to wait for the parade to end, since she was on her way home when she happened upon this juicy, clickbait-worthy news piece, which is exactly what is expected of her from her employers, I'm sure. Wink

According to the comments, it's a legitimate mistake.
After all, ISIS is a bunch of dicks.

Ya know, I think this reporter in her complete stupidity stumbled onto something fantastic. People should buy tens of thousands of Butt Plug Flags and fly them everywhere just to embarrass and mock ISIS. Laughat I bet it would drive ISIS members totally crazy knowing their flag looks like a Butt Plug Flag.

Hahahahaha. I think this is great! Thumbsup Big GrinLaugh out load

Correct me if I'm wrong but there's no such thing as a "butt plug flag" but rather it was a flag made into the shape of an IS flag using shapes of butt plugs.

^They look more like fish to me, but ok.

I guess you could stick a nice, plump trout up there, too, and it would work just the same. Laugh out load

On the white part of the flag:
ring pop | clearly a dildo | Rorschach test? | Poop
Curvy Poop | dog collar | fish | fish | dafuq? | What the hell is this doing up my ass?
