Raspberry PI computers face boycotts from homophobes


The Raspberry Pi Foundation has made massive strides in getting young people into computer coding with the 2016 launch of its budget price credit card-sized Raspberry Pi computers and associated software on both professional and amateur levels.
The petition started by user NoRottenPi notes that the Raspberry Pi website shows a picture of rainbow near kids which some people believed to be a ‘propaganda of homosexuality’“The Raspberry Pi Foundation is using its product to promote Gay/Lesbian/Transgender agenda even to minors,” reads the petition. “I do not believe it is appropriate to use an educational product as a vehicle to promote Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender causes to our children.” The petition added that the image was telling children it’s ok to be gay while their parents were trying hard to put them on a ‘hetrosexual path’, failing even to spell ‘heterosexual’. “Raspberry Pi Foundation should immediately remove the rainbow flag from all of their web site. It has no place with an educational product. They should furthermore refrain from promoting any gay, lesbian, transgender or even sexual preference in their promotional material, web sites or anything related to the Raspberry Pi Foundation or any of their related products,” it reads. The petition has an initial target of 100 supporters but has so far failed to get even 30.
