NickI don't believe that the pradae is meant to *prove* dignity but to express the notion of it, to serve as a reminder of it, and to celebrate its existence despite the torrent of opposition. Okay, so the nudity, lewdness, debauchery, and outright orgies somewhat obscure that message (ever-so-slightly), but I think that's the original intent. We don't have anything to prove. You're right in saying that dignity and self-worth are inherent. While I agree that glorification of perceived differences or inequities can exacerbate problems, I believe even more strongly that we deserve the right to celebrate and embrace our identity. However, we must remember that our goal is not merely to party our gay asses off but to (1) realize our strength and validity as individuals (because of OR regardless of sexual orientation), (2) pay homage to the courage, sacrifices, and accomplishments of our predecessors, and (3) remember our collective richness and diversity even while striving for equality. http://uoqjepxtvam.com [url=http://rynkawzne.com]rynkawzne[/url] [link=http://pucdjggom.com]pucdjggom[/link]
