Someone removed a section about flags of fetish communities; I reverted the removal.[edit]

So tell me if there's an actual valid reason to remove this section from the page dedicated to flag about sexual identity. Thankies. KiwiNeko14 (talk) 12:58, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

The Leather Pride Flag has a long and well-established existence as such things go, and has appeared in physical cloth form in a number of contexts, and so certainly should not be deleted. Some of the others are a little less established, but not conspicuously more so than a number of other symbols or flags on the page... AnonMoos (talk) 14:46, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Regarding the name of the gallery[edit]

Since the gallery features symbols for both sexual and gender identities, should it not be named something like "Sexual and gender identity symbols"? Just a thought. Qanada Ever (talk) 01:37, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Maybe, but with the word sexual meaning both "having to do with the biological sexes" and "having to do with sexuality", the distinction might be a little too subtle for many... AnonMoos (talk) 22:40, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
While I see your point and agree that many people may not understand the distinction, for the transgender community gender and biological sex are mutually exclusive, and there are more genders than there are sexes. Qanada Ever (talk) 03:26, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
