So, you're proud to be gay because some people disagree with it? That doesn't make much sense.

Or, when you say "have pride" do you really mean "make a point to make it an issue"? Because then it would make sense.

Melicious isn't gay, fyi. Very straight, very married, and very much a devoted mother.

I didn't think she was gay, but the title of this with the word "we" threw me. In any case I don't have a problem with pride when there's a reason for it. I don't think sexuality is something to be proud of hetero or gay. Just like skin color. I'm not roud to be white, I'm just white. I honestly never put any thought into it. I don't imagine I would feel any better or worse about myself if I were another color. Same as with my sexuality.. I would generally feel Pride in a situation where things could have been different. For example if a child does well in school you might be proud of them, because they didn't have to work hard and get a good grade. Or if you accomplish something at work you can be proud of yourself, because you put time and effort into it. You can even be proud to be an American, because of America could have been a very different country. But to have pride for being straight, gay, black, or white doesn't really make much sense to me. Maybe that's why so many look down on all these different "pride" displays. It's just not something that warrants pride.

The history behind Pride is very significant. I am certain you know it. And if you dont. Let us know and we can educate you.

The difference between being having gay pride and straight pride. When you are straight.. you are not bombareded by the signs in the photo. You can have a photo of your spouse on your desk and not worry about being fired. You can take your partner to a company function and not worry about being fired. You can walk down the street holding their hand without fear of having slurs thrown at you. Or worse being beaten because it. As a younger person... you dont worry that if your parents find out they wont love you any more. Or kick you out of the house. Or that ypu can take your date to prom. When you get married there is little chance that a baker will refuse to mske your cake based on who you love.. or a venue will turn you away. Or a public servant refuse to issue your marriage licence. Or a doctor refuse to offer you care.

Being straight we take all these for granted. Homosexuals dont have that luxury. So yes... WE have Pride month. And I say "we" because I am an ally.

I'm guessing most who support you, and you yourself, won't be able to see this, but it is an antagonistic way by the gay movement. The goal we are told is for all to be treated equally and essentially totally disregard what makes us different. Whether that be skin color, sexuality, religion, or whatever. Yet this only serves to highlight the differences. In addition many of the visuals that are put forth buy these movements are antagonistic as well. The gay men prancing around in their underwear or in drag at these events, being sure to be sexually explicit, there's not much in the way of humility and desire to be taken seriously from an onlookers perspective. In contrast, black people had quite a tough fight as well. And I don't recall ever seeing black people flaunt their "stereotypical blackness" in a similar fashion. There are protests, there was Martin Luther King, all great and wonderful things. And all very serious. But with gay pride there's such a huge in your face, look how gay we are way about it. That it's simply appears antagonism is just as much a goal as equality.

Since heterosexuality is the norm, and has been throughout the entire world every civilization ever, it doesn't make logical sense to say showing it is throwing in anyone's face.

You " throw it in someone's face" when you are showing that they are wrong about something. Very few have ever argue that heterosexuality is wrong. And, scientifically speaking, that argument is impossible. So technically you can't throw heterosexuality in anyone's face.

lets not forget heterosexuality is the only way any species can survive.

and if liberals truly believed in evolution and strongest survive, then their would be an argument that homosexuality would not exist today, as it is weak, and would have died off the first generation. and they would not support such behavior as it is not productive to their religion of evolution.

its a shame liberals feel they must shove it down our kids throats, in schools in parades, and other BS. its a shame they feel they can tell us we have to accept their beliefs, and then tell us its none of our business when we speak our mind, if they are too weak to handle the truth then perhaps they should stop imposing their propaganda down our throats. no one would care what their beliefs and life was if they didn;t attempt to force us to support it.


its also incredibly hypocritical of the left to tell christians we can;t have prayer in school or teach christianity as its imposing a worldview on children but then so ferociously defend imposing LGTBQ propaganda unto children, deliberately ignoring the blatant fact they are doing the same thing they criticize christians for doing.

You are putting words in my mouth. I didnt say normal, I said "the norm". That is a very different meaning... as in more common and generally accepted. There is nothing derogatory about the term "the norm"

It has nothing to do with making me uncomfortable, in fact it doesnt make me uncomfortable. I just am not homosexual myself and disagree with gay marriage.

My point, again, is that when something is "the norm" it generally isnt seen as "throwing it in someone's face" as "thowing it in someone's face" kind of requires something to be less common, or seen by the other person (whos face it is being thrown in) as wrong or incorrect.

So, sorry, nothing wrong with that explanation no matter how hard you try to make it SEEM as though it is offensive, It is not. It is an assessment of language usage (and a correct one at that).

Now to expand a bit, the intent of spring break pics and anything similar has nothing to do with promoting a lifestyle aside from fun and wild (generally by someone to make money off of it)

The intent of the salacious images at gay events is to basically say.. oh yeah you dont like us because we are gay... well take a look at this!!

But with evolution we have advanced and intercourse between different sexes is no longer required to pro-create.

If pro-creation is the only thing thar makes hetreosexuality valid.. what about those who are not capable.. are they, in your eyes.. less than?

Wrong on both counts.

A) I would not have any place to response if yet another gay post had not been created. In addition, I am not getting upset. I am merely stating that much of the activity in these events is an "in your face style"

B) Never said, or implied, that one is better or superior. Simply stated that one is "the norm" as in 98% of the population.

Ultimately, I think the gay community is doing themselves a terrible dis-service by acting as they do at these events... in the exaggerated stereotypes.

It IS in your face with the intent of being in your face. I get why there is a reluctance to admit that since it is so obvious but gay advocates should really tell these people stop acting like idiots.

And by idiot, I dont mean acting in a normal way, with a partner if that is what you do. (I was at the park with my son yesterday and two women were walking down the bike path holding hands... so what. Coulndt care less. Act normal.

But does anyone really parade down the street on a regular day in rainbow Batman outfit...lol... come on.

There have been many blacks who recognize that when other blacks act in the "stereotyped" way, they are doing a disservice to the community. They tell them the way to get respect... drop the stupid ghetto slang, pick your pants up above your knees, etc. Its no different with the gay community.

You want equality and respect and then dance around in the most stereotyped, blantant, overtly gay way possible. A way that, to be honest, I find very hard to believe most gay people act on a regular basis.

And then get upset if anyone criticizes the lifestyle as not normal. Sorry, rollerskating down the street in a rainbow Batman outfit is NOT normal.

Right, so it is an admittedly an in your face gesture.

And that's fine that it is mocking. But you're perpetuating a negative stereotype.

I get that maybe you dont think it does because youre smarter than the white-trash-dolt-bigots that dont get it or whatever. But it does. It may seem snarky and funny but, in the end, the jokes on them because they are helping to strengthen a stereotype that they want gone--or at least say that they want gone.

Skimming through your post and reading some of the comments, I'd like to point some things out.

* Those people holding anti-gay signs are *not* representative of all, or even most, Christians.

* Those pictures of the outrageous getups and actions at pride events are *not* representative of all, or even most, of the LGBT community.

* That said, there *are* going to be a few from each group who are in-your-face with their beliefs or lifestyles. That is true of each and every segment of society. There is always a small but vocal minority that give an entire group of people (who may have but one thing in common, that being whatever is on the particular label they are being judged by at any given moment in time) a bad rep.

This causes a great deal of division in society that has only been exacerbated by the internet and social media. We all tend to get caught up in it sometimes. Some revel in it. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, the scars, and became a self-proclaimed "phobist" so that my online adversaries could limit the necessary typing by just throwing all the phobias and ists they called me into one concise word. I also learned a lot. About myself, about others, about groupthink, and the ease with which society can be swayed or whipped into a frenzy.

Now I'm not gonna say I don't get riled more than most about certain subjects, I do. And I'm not gonna say I won't be an****time-to-time, I will. But I have learned that by embracing that which is most important to me, my faith and personal freedom, that I can bypass a lot of the bull****. I may not like what someone does, or doesn't do for that matter, but as long as they aren't infringing on my rights, it's not my business. If they are doing something that is intended to infringe upon my rights, that warrants a response as does directly doing so. It's the former that causes a lot of friction in society. Sometimes we see things as an attempt to control others that may or may not be. A lot of things are worthy of a fight. An awful lot aren't. And while I may hate situations, actions, words...I may get frustrated with groupthink, willful ignorance, lack of critical thinking, lack of common sense, and the idiocy that abounds in our world..,I don't hate the people, and certainly not entire groups of people.

Sometimes the easiest and clearest way to get to the truth of the matter is to step back from the computer, put the phone down, go out and about, and *really* look around you. I never heard a single "Happy Holidays" last Christmas, it was always "Merry Christmas". I've never seen an anti-gay sign here, either. Back in the day, after work on Saturday I'd often head to the bar with my obviously dyke friend. A blue-collar, working-class bar in a factory town...and no one ever said a word, or looked at us funny, or anything else out of the ordinary. When I tripped on the bricks and fell flat on my face in the middle of a downtown intersection, people from both sides of the street, black and white, came to my aid. I've had similar experiences with latinos, arabs, and Muslims here. When I'd drive through ritzy subdivisions with my work truck and equipment, yuppies (that weren't customers) walking or jogging always smiled and waved. I've known several ex-cons up close and personal, hired a few...they were my hardest and most trustworthy workers (with one exception, and he was an innercity black I hired from an innercity center in a pinch). Look around you in the 3D, if it doesn't match the internet hype, that likely is a product of the very vocal minority. It may be worth keeping an eye on, but it's not always worth the intense reactions that we often see online.

Maybe it's time to accept others for the individuals they are...mentally ripping the labels off we automatically see attached to them, focus on the logs in our own eyes, quit pushing *and* pushing back where it's *unwarranted*, reacquaint ourselves with the Common twins (Sense and Courtesy), embrace the lost art of minding our own business, and remember that the day-to-day price of freedom is that we just ain't always gonna like what others do or say.

Just some thoughts.

As always...JMHO
