So say that you find it disrespectful. Don't imply everyone shares your stance.

You totally gave my reply the back of your hand. I'm starting to think you don't like me.

Some social mores are more clear-cut than others. The use of the flag on clothing is something that has a big fat grey area and has been for some time, though the spirit of the times at least here in the US has evolved into "whatever, it's cool." If someone asserted "Use of flag emblamage on clothing is widely considered respectful" or "Use of flag emblamage on clothing is widely considered respectful" then you could really have a debate.

Yep you can debate the exact same side for a long time.

I meant "disrespectful" on the second one. But I know pointing out my error brought you great joy so it was worth it.

No, pointing out that you really don't mean what you say brings me joy.

Considering things is exactly what this protest is about. Respect is earned, not demanded. Consider that for a second.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

You make that sound like a trend. Besides that typo, it should be easy to find a second example, could you share one?

Flags are often used as tools.
