THIS. They have become utterly asinine.
Sure, I think *some* pride parades and events are overly sexualised, but this doesn't apply to all of them (and I'm sure it's different in different countries)For example, I went on a pride parade and saw no public sex at all. There was nothing even close! It was intended to be a family friendly event, and it was indeed. There were few people kissing, hell, barely even anyone holding hands. It wasn't anything to do with hedonism, and it wasn't dirty. It was purely a show of support and unity, a protest against the acts of discrimination against LGBT+ people that are still happening to this day. A celebration of being who you are and being loves and accepted, yes, but primarily pride exists as a protest. That's something I think people have been forgetting recently. The protest is the main goal. When we got to the end of the parade there were people holding signs saying it's wrong to be gay or trans!! And it was then that I truly realised the march was not pointless. It wasn't just a happy, colourful day. It was to stand AGAINST people like that, and to show them that thousands and thousands of people will not accept the way they treat LGBT+ people!I'm a woman in a relationship with a man, and I've never been with a girl, and I'm not trans. I am bisexual, but I'm capable of being quite "invisible". I'm lucky I've never personally faced discriminating comments or actions. I wasn't attending pride for my own benefit. I was doing it for EVERYONE! I know maybe you'll say attending a march doesn't *do* anything to help people, but I was a part of sending an important message to my community and to the world. It's not a solution but a step in the right direction - if we don't keep speaking about the problems there are, they're certainly not going to get fixed. It's understandable pride can be painful to witness from the closet, or worse from a position of oppression. But who said it was gonna be easy? With respect, I don't think stopping pride is the answer.
Why is being transgender closer to being straight than gay to you? I didn’t understand what you mean with that. Care to elaborate?
Wait, but don't transgender females seek out to date men even though they're actually a man and transgender males seek women knowing they are actually women, thus making them more gay than straight?
@GhostMochi There are many trans women who only date women though. They like to refer to themselves as trans lesbian lol
Transgender is not closer to straight. A man presenting as a woman and hooking up with men is still a gay sexual interaction.
YvanKarma I think that bellybuttonlint considers a sexual relationship between a transgender woman and a cis man a heterosexual relationship. I totally do not agree with that. A transgender woman is a man and if he got together with a cis man that would still be gay. So I think bellybuttonlint his argument doesn’t hold up. Two men together can never be straight no matter if one of the two thinks he is a woman or not. Comments like this infuriate me.
@TeddybearRoosevelt If you transition to a male, then by the transgender's identification they are a male. The will usually seek out female companionship. At times these people will go through reassignment surgery and hormonal therapy. They are trying to turn themselves into the gender they want to be and then date the opposite gender. This is closer to being straight than gay.
So you see a trans woman as a woman? And when she dates a man that is heterosexual according to you? Delusional. Men can not become women.
@davidmcshire no, I don't see trans women as women. I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of transgenderism.
Why did this get down voted? I didn't say anything bad..
Welcome to GAG haha :)

Dude. In NYC 100 black men can be shot in gang violence and police nonsense and no one cares. If ONE person gets into a fight with an LGBT person they protest for days.
birthdays in june*****
i’m sorry i can’t type
Most Americans are fine with gay people expect for the grumpy old religious nutsPlus sins are not real
fine with gay people. no them pushing their agenda down our throats.
Go to sleep!
It's only 2. It'd be early lol
Proud pf being out in the face of people who literally throw their underage children pit of the house for being gay, or beat them, or harass them.They don't do that to straight people
Or proud of killing unborn children! 😄 Or as the liberals call it fetus.
We'd be better if we rid the world of you. Leave those poor people alone. They just wanna live their lives.
@AdithyaR Ya leave those poor people alone so you can get your hammer and sickle on them and turn them into political puppets. You seek out every vulnerable population to exploit them but we know what you are. An effective treatment or prevention might have been found by now for this defect if it hadn't been for Marxist filth. You're going to kill them later they just don't know it.
If you actually knew what you're talking about, they're not defects. The human mind is a complex thing, so not everyone will think and live in the same way. Their existence is not a problem.
And I don't even follow politics, so the whole hammer thing you were talking about means nothing to me.
@AdithyaR It is a defect and not just in the mind, the whole body is compromised from conception. These people don't develop right and end up with a makeshift life. Of course you don't follow politics and what I'm saying means nothing to you. You were quietly indoctrinated from child hood to think like you do. Blue pilled and a useful idiot. http://www.nimbios.org/press/FS_homosexuality
I think like I do because I choose to accept them as normal people. Their existence doesn't affect your life anymore than it does mine.So just let them be. They're also just people trying to live their lives.
@AdithyaR Their existence means that this horrible fate is still befalling human beings. Disease and defect are not to be celebrated they are to be treated and hopefully eliminated so the suffering stops. It is wrong and it is cruel to turn your back on the deformed and sick and pretend nothing is wrong with them. It's just a way of not dealing with it because it's not you suffering from it. Who would want this to happen to their child?
How classy you are
@Asianguy123 I'm not the one here asking opinions, I'm giving them , good or bad. At least I'm being honest.
I won’t support feminism
We don’t kill babies too
@Asianguy123 What does Gay Pride have to do with killing babies which I am about.
You know they're brothers right? So if incest is a sexuality you support it?
Well my fluff family might include a gay child or a genderqueer child, and that would make no difference to my levels of love and acceptance for them :)
Well i hope not, but no one hates his own child, i guess you have the fluff power to turn them straight, it's your secret fluffy girl and no one knows about it...😄
To me it would not be a problem if child weren't straight.A) There's no way to change one's sexuality, it's inherent and lifelongB) There is absolutely nothing wrong with being gay or otherwise gender/sexuality noncomforming.
Yes i know but that doesn't mean that they are normal cause they aren't...There is no medical cure to this case and that's why we accept them but that doesn't mean that they normal and right!
You are mistaken, it's completely normal. They don't need a cure because there is NOTHING that needs fixing except intolerance of others!
Fluffy girl for you it's normal but for me they are abnormal, you were taught to believe that they are normal while if you look deeply, you will realize that they aren't...What's normal is 1 man and 1 woman together...I accept them but i'd like to stay away from them because their mind works differently...
I mean, I wasn't really specifically taught to support LGBT. I was, however, taught to be accepting and kind to everyone
That's good fluffy girl, because they are human beings and some of them are just nice and i don't about their secusl orientation as long as they don't affect me.Your a fluff fluffy girl who needs lots of love and safety and ofc fun, why don't you come here so i take you to have fun and eat pop corn, also drink pepsi, while your with me, no one can touch fluffy the fluff girl 😂
You are one of the few I now respect.
Heterophobia is real, and ridiculous. Big Gay (TM) preaches acceptance, but only for queers - and only leftist queers. Not straight people of conservative queers.Fuck Big Gay (TM). Keep your sexuality to yourself and your partner, most folks really don't want to hear about it.
I agree with you. I have no problems with gay people but I don't like it shoved in my face and make me look inhuman. You have a nice day.
You too, sir.
Dude I live in NYC and that shit was getting OBNOXIOUS. My dear god. On Sunday, the last day of the largest parade, I was on a train and a group of puerto rican lesbians came on, drunk, flags everywhere screaming and at one point they started mocking a mexican guy who wasn't bothering them. THey started making fun of him being mexican and told him if he doesn't like the noise to get off the train because gay people took over the city and men don't "run shit anymore". I'm so fucking glad it's July... seriously.
Dafuq is a Christmas flag?
@BeHappy1985 Exactly! No Christmas flag! No crusader flag on Christmas!
Mine too bro! Happy birthday in advance.
Thanks you too, what day?
Nice that's my stepdads, 14th here
