See, that's exactly my point. It's just being done , basically, because LGBT people are having their pride parades and straight people aren't. It's basically as if they're going " Oh, no! Those gays are more important to the media than we are! To the Batcave!"Exactly this. While you cannot deny someone the right to have their own parade based on race/gender/sexual orientation/etc. That doesn't necessarily mean that everyone will agree with it, or that it isn't insulting to other groups.
My problem with the "Hetrosexual Pride Parade" is not really the fact they are "proud" of being straight, but the fact they think they actually think they need it. It seems wholly disingenuous and spiteful to me.
Yes exactly. It's like "oh, we poor straight people are being left out! we must fix this injustice!"Spot on.
Then they just launch all this Pride crap because the other " side" has it. Again, one-upmanship.
There are no sides, only people. It's all a delusion we made up to make us feel better about ourselves. Seperate people into groups and then it's child's play to decide which ones you don't like, and then make them feel bad so you feel better. I probably already said this, but it's a cycle.
So all they're going to do is cause more segregation of what, in actual fact, is one "team". Furthermore...
To me, that suggests underlying issues pushing the straight pride idea. It says about morals and stuff... but how does that come into being proud of being straight?Sao Paulo City Council Approves 'Heterosexual Pride Day' said:......But he also said his push for the event is not really about parades — he doesn't want one for Heterosexual Pride Day — but is to "raise awareness and encourage the public to safeguard the morals and good customs."
This is ridiculous. Of course they should avoid a meeting of and LGBT parade and a March for Jesus.Sao Paulo City Council Approves 'Heterosexual Pride Day' said:The legislation's author, councilman Carlos Apolinario, said Heterosexual Pride Day is "not anti-gay but a protest against the privileges the gay community enjoys." One of these privileges, he said, is their right to hold a parade down Paulista Avenue while the March for Jesus, another large-scale walk, is barred from using the main thoroughfare.
I read in a related article that a lot of those are Evangelical protestants. In RE we were taught that evangelical protestants believe the Gay act and the mere inclination are all sinful . How, then, could it be wrong to avoid the two meeting or going down the same road? It's violence just waiting to happen.
This all sounds to me just like they're making excuses to have a straight pride parade, and when it comes down to it, it's, like I said, one upmanship.
