I don't think it makes sense to be proud of anything you simply are without having done anything for it, like sexual orientation. It makes even less sense to be proud of being the standard.

Gay pride parades are only disgusting for all of the flaming queens, men dressed up as giant penises and almost naked men in bondage, makeup and committing lewd acts. Okay fine, you don't find the opposite sex appealing, but why show off all that weird stuff too? It just makes the gay lifestyle seem more unnatural.

IMO there should no longer be gay pride parades. Gays can now get married, so no need to keep self-promoting. And from my point of view, children see that if they were to come out as trans or gay, there is an outpouring of support and excitement from the community, but to be straight is common and boring, and even ignored. So why not also have a straight pride day?

Ideally, there shouldn't be either days (gay or straight). And yes, gay pride parades are for the most part filled with lewd and disgusting acts and images. At this point in our society, the LGBT crowd should just tone down on the outside and live their sexual preferences in a more toned down way. There is no need to keep throwing it in our faces.

Then convince the fruit loops to tone down the pornography. Better yet, keep your proclivities in the bedroom.

It's a parody of the "gay pride" parade. As Norm MacDonald said, "how do you have pride in something that isn't an achievement?"

It makes much less sense to demonstrate pride in belonging to the standard than to a minority. Same with race, black pride makes sense in view of all the efforts to destroy black people's self-esteem, but white pride makes no sense when whites dominate everything, anyway.

I am rather progressive in most aspects, but I also don't like those parades. I think those Carnival-like displays do the majority of more introverted, private people with alternative sexual orientation more harm than good.

What really says a lot is the fliers this group sent out in which they admit this isn't really about straight pride, it's about white nationalistic Christian pride. They told us themselves it was really about hate. And I believe them.

If the LGBT crowd truly want to be accepted by the rest of society, they need to stop with the outrageous displays in their pride parades. How can you hope to be treated with respect and dignity when the majority of your pride parade is full of purposefully freakish dress and behaviour?

What parent is going to be happy that their son is gay and behaves like this in public???

Actually, it isn't. What they have to decide is whether the group that wants the parade permit meets the requirements.

Otherwise, the ACLU will sue the city. https://www.aclu.org/other/aclu-hist...-speech-skokie
