    Okay, so how may people really need a rainbow adorned Playstation? How much money do they expect this is going to raise compared to home much financial aid they are giving to countries like Uganda?

    Here’s a thought, Sweden: How about taking the aid to Uganda and setting up a LGBT refugee fund with it to help get people out of that country. Period.

    Problem solved, win-win for everyone concerned.

    I did not realize the “Gaystation” was in rebuttal to the aid.

    Nice attempt, but again… how many people really want a rainbow adorned console?
