Man Goes To Extreme Lengths To Avoid Stepping On Rainbow Stairs

There’s nothing funny about homophobia. LGBTQ+ people are being discriminated against, harassed, and even killed on a daily basis just for being who they are, and it’s a serious problem. However, sometimes this prejudice takes such ridiculous forms that you can’t help but laugh, and that was certainly the case with a homophobic man who went to great lengths (and heights) to avoid walking up rainbow stairs.

A now-viral video appeared online on Friday showing a man scaling a set of what are definitely not stairs rather than walking up the totally normal-sized and easily accessible stairs just to his right, which are painted in rainbow colors and feature pro-LGBTQ+ messages. Twitter immediately went crazy, pointing out the absurdity of the man’s actions.

“Homophobes really are stupid. Just walk on the rainbow stairs dude,” wrote user DCHomos.

IamIanJacob added, “Great metaphor for how they make their own lives more difficult in a world evolving around them.”

Of course, there’s no way to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the guy avoided the stairs because he’s a rampant homophobe, but there’s really no other explanation for what’s going on here.

I mean, would he really feel emasculated or as if he was making a public statement about supporting gay rights by… walking up a set of stairs? The mind boggles.

The video, originally posted by Zod14_, was later deleted, though thankfully it was saved and reposted for posterity, and many came to the unidentified man’s defense, with one claiming that maybe he simply wanted to see if he could climb the non-steps quickly because that’s how “dude logic” works. Another chastised those condemning the man for assuming his motivations from a short video.

While one pointed out possibly the greatest issue of all:

Whatever this guy’s reason for avoiding the rainbow stairs, one thing’s for sure: he definitely got Twitter talking about him.
