DonI agree with all your points as far as why we have Gay Pride vs why we don't have Straight Pride.However what is the msaesge we are REALLY putting out there?EVERY Pride parade I have ever been to- has floats full of naked men (and women) every pride parade I have ever been to has S&M; floats Straight people get into S&M; as well- but the more conservative straight people may not realise (nor accept) this fact- and use it against us to claim we are all sick perverts.Such floats have nothing to do with being gay but it does lead to MISINTERPRETATION which is simply used against us.When the pride parade organizaers start insisting that floats etc. depict true GAY Pride, and not simply pushing OTHER agendas which will be misleading as to what it means to be GAY then I will agree that we should have gay pride celebrations. But, as it is now I think the point has been lost and society sees us in negative ways because of the mixed msaesges these parade actually give out. http://tznflimhum.com [url=http://thkieddzvti.com]thkieddzvti[/url] [link=http://oyiozgelwl.com]oyiozgelwl[/link]
