@EffieTrinket:  I hadn’t noticed that…my profile picture is still one of my engagement pictures, but if my friends think that’s a statement, they don’t know me very well. I just love my pics 🙂

Haven’t heard anything to suggest that that might be going on…but who knows.

@EffieTrinket:  I haven’t noticed that personally.  Lots of red = signs, but nothing from those that oppose gay marriage.  I think they know they’re in the minority 🙂

FWIW, I support gay marriage and haven’t changed my profile pic.  But it’s not a couples pic either.  My friends know what side I fall on.

Also wondering if people are going to keep that as their pic until the justices make their decision?…. or will it wear off?

My profile pic is a coupley one. So is my FI’s. We’re flaming liberals that completely support equal rights. But we’re also too lazy to change our photos. I haven’t changed mine in about 2 years.

Personally I find it silly to change your profile picture to the red picture, it is not going to get its point accross to law makers/supreme court members, they dont freaking care about OMG people are changing their social media picture.

My entire facebook feed is full of photos with a man and woman, saying they support God’s view on marriage, and things like that.

Such as –


I am a Christian. I go to church. I pray, every single day. I confess my sins, EVERY single day.


I support gay marriage. I support a woman’s right to get an abortion. I wish people would do the same. Do not push your beliefs on someone else. DO NOT use your beliefs to TAKE AWAY SOMEONE ELSES RIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven’t noticed it… although I do not spend a lot of time on FB and didn’t really put the two and two together about the  equals sign representation until I saw it on WB.

Havn’t noticed. Our profile picture has been one of our marriage photos for awhile now though.

I guess I better log into facebook and change my profile pic before someone accuses me of being a bigoted rebpublican.


I haven’t logged into facebook for a few months…not even sure if I even remember my password.

Mine is of my kiddo. I haven’t seen any increase in the number of couple pictures displayed, although I’d guess 90% of my friends support gay rights (at least), so I’m probably not a good sample.

My profile pic is of my SO and I. I did not adopt the equal rights pic, because I am lazy and did not feel like changing my profile picture.  However, those that know me know my stance on the subject matter, and that is everyone deserves equal rights, in life, in love, and IN MARRIAGE!!

My profile picture on FB is one of my dogs.  I changed it a couple of months ago when she had a lump removed and was hoping it wasn’t anything serious (it wasn’t, thank goodness).  I support equal rights, but it’s not worth it to me to change my profile pic.


I just looked at my gay friends’ FB pages.  None of them have changed to that equal sign.

I support gay marriage and I haven’t changed my FB picture. Honestly…changing a FB pic isn’t going to make a difference regarding the issue. I get that its out of support, but I never do any of those FB things. Just not me. Everyone that knows me well knows how I feel about the issue so I guess I don’t feel the need to blast it. My pic is still of one of our engagement photos.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  I would have to unfriend those people.

@adoc86:  Showing solidarity makes a statement, regardless of whether the Supreme Court can see it.

I’m not sure, if anybody makes an anti-equality statement, I de-friend them on Facebook (and this has only happened once or twice, I tend to have flaming liberals for friends, being from a liberal area and doing theater, lol), so I don’t know anybody to check what their picure would be 🙂
