Sorry, you can't have it both ways.

You want a parade for one, then you need to be open to parades for all.

A so-called "straight pride" parade may be coming to California as Modesto officials weigh whether to approve plans for the event that would "celebrate heterosexuality."

City officials are reviewing an application for a permit to hold the event Aug. 24 in Graceada Park, CBS Sacramento and the Los Angeles Times reported.

It looks like a cover for the real purpose of the parade:

"Fliers circulating on social media advertising the event list not just "heterosexuality" but also "western civilization" and "Christianity" as causes of celebration. According to the Anti-Defamation League, white nationalist organizations often use terms like "promoting western civilization" as code words."

I would love to see who march in those parades. I bet most straight people don't feel the need to. Gay people do it to show that they are not afraid of who they are and a feeling of belonging to a group of people feeling the same way. But the majority of the planet are straight so I don't see the point. It's not like anybody really care that you show them you are straight...lol. So stupid.

So, do you have to give parade permits to racists/white supremacists? That's the question these city officials have to decide.

Well, whatever they may decide, I know we'll agree that it will be a welcome change from this:

I'm a straight conservative and even I don't want to go to a straight pride parade, but I also don't care if they have one just like the LGBT crowd has theirs. That one is meaningless at this point, so they are pretty much on the same footing IMO. In fact, maybe we can combine them and just have a PEOPLE'S PARADE or something...but then why? Oh let's just cancel them all

My thing is...if it makes people happy, let them do it. If gay people, straight people, white people, black people, Christians,... if it makes them happy to have a parade...let them!
