    LOL I had a guy asked me once... "...how do you know you're not gay?" And I asked him... "...how do you know you're NOT straight?" I guess you to be there... cause the way he couldn't answer my question... I think he's asked people that question so many times, and wasn't expecting something like that in return...

    Nope doesn't offend me. If anything it means more partying and getting drunk.

    :roflw:

    I've had this discussion with a few friends, both straight and gay. It seemed that people who were completly secure in thier sexuality (either way) were not offended, but the closer to the fence they sat, the more offended they were. The worst was anyone that was bi, completly offended. Most common reason for being offended was something about "why does it have to be one way or the other?" Well isn't that what Gay pride days/parades are about? :ugh:

    I even had a title picked out:

    "We keep the world populated day" :mamoru:

    The one response that I really didn't understand and saw as a complete oxymoron was:

    "A straight pride day or parade is discrimatory." Well what the hell is a gay pride day or parade then? :rolleyes:

    No. Since society is predominatly heterosexual, every day is straight pride. There is no need for a celebration of heterosexuality, as our hetero-centric society celebrates it every day. Indeed, positive messages reinforcing heterosexuality are found everywhere, every day.

    Positive images in regards to homosexuality are much harder to find (though easier than ten years ago). Thus, the need for a gay pride day - a day for people who live in a society that otherwise marginalizes them (at best) or downright oppresses them (at worst) to feel better about being who they are.

    When the need to do so is eliminated, the need for Pride days will be eliminated. The same argument applies to Black History month and other similar events.

    See teh way I look at is that if you need something like a pride day or parard to feel good about yourself, then something is wrong.
    I feel good about who/what I am, because I feel good about it, not because other people accept it or not, I could care less about what they think.

    I tend to agree with this as far as Black History month and Gay Parades are concerned.

    IMO things like Gay Parades and Black History Month do more to seperate than bring together.

    If you're proud, fine, but does anyone need a fucking parade? Stop being attention whores (goes out to everyone who clamours for a parade to walk down main street in, just because they are different).

    I could care less...

    Let's get Katie Couric and Matt Lauer to host it. She can wear mismatched shoes and he can wear a bad hairpiece... that should make them look straight enough.
