I endorse this idea. That should make plot happy.

Apparently it was just approved and is being sent to the mayor's desk for signing.

Thanks goodness straight people can finally have this one day of high visibility, where they can show each other there are many others just like them. They can be proud of who they are and persevere so that one day they will have all the same rights afforded to gay people

You wont catch me at one of those.

why not? lots of scantily ladies parading around the streets? cheap drinks? equality activism fundraisers? raising money for STD research? Bright and colorful floats and costumes? Great music? Lots of great afterparties?

Yes it would be a most terrible time.

Not if there isn't any homophobic rhetoric spoken and it is just voices of positive reinforcement and of talk of equality. Like in gay parades.
2 things.

1) I think teh-gay movement's largest accomplishment is changing the meaning of "homophobic" from 'fear of teh-gay,' to something akin to 'racist.' The subtlety as a propaganda move is amazing.

2) Promoting irrelevant differences is the opposite of egalitarianism.

People who will go out of their way for the "straight cause" are just bored douchebags, period.

2) Promoting irrelevant differences is the opposite of egalitarianism.

1) If you think that's where "homophobia" came from, you are mistaken. The root of that "homophile" is akin to the Gay Movement of the 50's, homophile was the name of the movement. "Homophobia" came from those men that were straight that had a fear they were perceived as gay. It isn't a fear of BEING gay or a fear of gay people, but rather a fear of being perceived as gay. Or you can use the psychologist's own definition of the word since he made it.
[A] phobia about homosexuals....It was a fear of homosexuals which seemed to be associated with a fear of contagion, a fear of reducing the things one fought for — home and family. It was a religious fear and it had led to great brutality as fear always does.

Was it effective and useful a change? Well it wasn't a change. The phrase "homophobia" or "homophobic" wasn't even defined until the late 60's, early 70's, so technically it has never changed.


2) And what differences are being promoted exactly at a gay pride or parade event? And why are they irrelevant? The purpose of the parades is to show people that sexual orientation SHOULD be irrelevant in society. It is to give visibility to onlookers that lots of people are different in lots of ways and that we should still all be equal, even if we are all so different with walks of life, etc. That's why I support a straight parade or white parade if there is no hate speech and all of the messages are positive, like they are in a gay parade event. There is never any talk about "breeders" and no one is excluded from a gay pride event. Quite honestly there are the PFLAG and Gay-Straight Alliance organizations marching in the parade to promote equality and unity between people of different walks of life.

People either complain I post dick shots and they don't like it or I talk about gay stuff too much. So while I am venting about such topics or want to shock someone, I spoiler tag it. Saves viewing space as well as any of those posts are ignorable, just like my threads with the Gay topic icon on them.
