Sometimes, when you’re an out-and-proud couple, living together in your beautiful rainbow bubble, you have to deal with haters.

And sometimes, they come in the form of one of your fathers.

That’s what happened to Arizona couple Destenny and Destiny – and they had a fantastic response.

Destiny’s dad came into their house and took the Pride flag the couple had hung up on their wall.

What’s worse, he threw it away.

But the couple knew exactly what to do.

They replaced it.

Not just that, though – they made it permanent.

Stripe by stripe, they painted a Pride flag on their wall.

Can’t take that and put it in the bin.

Others were just full-on in love with the concept of getting back at a homophobic parent in this way.

And to be fair, it is pretty amazing.
