TomI think that this question was prtety self-explanatory, I mean you'd have to be prtety dumb to ask that question.There's no straight pride because straight people are the majority of society and haven't been deprived of anything.It's like asking why there isn't white pride. Well, probably because the Afro-Americans were the ones enslaved, not the other way around.Besides, for there to be pride there needs to be a common cause that is simple and all people within the minority can agree on. Ergo, for gay people that is EQUALITY.I have a hard time seeing what the common cause would be for straight people.I mean, there's diversity and disputes within both groups. But for the gays there is that common cause at the end.So to me, the whole straight pride thing should be self-explanatory, and the fact that you have to make a video to explain that is a little bit sad. http://mbkovqeviu.com [url=http://yzumonmtdl.com]yzumonmtdl[/url] [link=http://otojvwiutnt.com]otojvwiutnt[/link]
