Do they put a gun to your head and make you go buy them?

It is still a public event where nudity and mostly homosexual sex is allowed right in the public streets. It should be illegal.

Yes some Pride events are not for families...some Christmas parties aren't for families.
So how would you feel about Mcdonalds promoting a wet-tshirt parade then? Same thing. Mcdonalds is promoting immorality. They ain't Hooters. It's a family restaurant.

Every oppressed group in history has to be active if they want to achieve equality and even then it doesn't work sometimes. We're not all the way there, but we're much further than we were with LGBTQ rights even 20 years ago. You don't achieve that progress if you're not actively working for it. Their work clearly isn't done as they still don't have the same rights as everyone. That's why there's a pride month.

And why don't you take your own advice and go live your life and enjoy your time on this plant? If you're not gay, literally none of this affects you - unless you happen to be at one of the handful of parade McDonald's locations along the D.C. Pride parade route between June 9-11. Because that's literally the only time and place you'll find these boxes that seem to be making a lot of uptight people really angry.
People are making it far more likely that next year five cities will do this for their marches.

Then the following year these fries will be in 25 cities.

By the fourth year they will be nationwide!

Keep up the good work!

Have you witnessed this "sex in the streets"?

By nudity, do you mean men with no shirts, or some ass cheeks showing?

Have you ever been to a beach?

There is about a 2% chance I may get an egg white delight sometime this month.

If I see rainbow fries, I'll tell those fries how gay they look.

What is "mostly homosexual?" A well-groomed guy who drives a convertible VW and enjoys shopping for window treatments, but is happily married to a straight woman?
