The LGBTQ+ community has some strong feelings after British supermarket chain Marks and Spencer (M & S) launched a new "LGBT" sandwich.


The sandwich in question is pretty simple to make, only requiring lettuce, guacamole, bacon and tomato: LGBT. The supermarket released the sandwich to raise money for the Albert Kennedy Trust, an organization dedicated to helping homeless LGBTQ+ youth.

M & S has already donated £10,000 to the Albert Kennedy Trust and has announced it will make a £1,000 donation to an Irish charity called BeLong to Youth Services.

The sandwich captured the public's attention after one Twitter user posted about it on the social network, captioning a photo of the sandwich with a reference to the Stonewall rebellion.

And soon the comments poured in, with at least one vegetarian seeming a little miffed by the sandwich...

...and another person suggesting people should just steal the sandwich because that's expensive, man.

Yeah, that's an expensive sandwich—who do they think we are, Mr. Moneybags or something?

An excellent point.

How dare they do this before Pride!

They didn't do much to create this sandwich, either.

Do better, M & S!

Quite the dilemma.

An excellent question.

A poorly thought out concept, cute or the possible end of the world?

You decide.

We don't know if we'd pay that much for one, though.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
