I have seen one. It was graduation day at Lackland AFB. Boot camp was over and 1000s of soldiers were marching in formation. Some gays partake so as not to stand out but it was a straight pride parade, nonetheless.

I think it would be a great idea to have a straight pride parade celebrating traditional marriage and the generations traditional marriage produces, a full family tree.

It would be no more homophobic them a gay pride parade is heterophobic.

Where did humans come from if not for heterosexuals?

Males can be milked for their semen to make test tube babies - still takes a man and a woman.

There is no such thing as a butt baby.

Hetero pride day is an NFL game or a NASCAR race. Throw in a good rodeo and its a trifecta.

The difference, is it a true celebration of yourself or a mockery of another group? One sounds very nice, the other is, frankly, mean spirited.

But you do realize gays put on very good parades. That is going to be hard to match! I mean, rainbow-colored hot pants do lend well to a parade-type atmosphere.
One of the gay guys on "Modern Family" is a clown as well.

I still can't believe in this day and age people are stupid enough to believe that kind of crap.

Stop drinking the Focus on the Family koolaid!! I'm pretty sure they pee in it!
I've read the practice is for gay men to show their love for each other. Who knows what else they drink?

Same with any similar activities connected to white pride.
Now you suggest white people are hateful and RACIST?

You aren't a gay progressive liberal are you?

From what I've gathered it's a celebration of finding out who you are and expressing that. Coming to grips with your sexuality can be a life changing event for many people, especially when you're told your feelings are wrong basically your entire life. I'm a straight woman and being around such happy people is a really nice experience.

Plus, my gay friends are able to hold hands with their significant others without being afraid of slurs (or objects) being thrown at them. Me, my boyfriend, my friend and his boyfriend (they were simply holding hands) were walking around downtown a few months ago and some D-bag 'macho' college guys threw a half empty beer can at them and yelled the f word. That's the crap they don't have to worry about during gay pride week.

Go ahead, have a straight pride parade... or like a previous poster said, just go to a bar, mardi gras etc etc.
3 is greater than I my vagina?

Armory, you do know that you are responding to posts that are 6 years old, don't you? I don't even recognize most of the screen names you are responding to.

However, even though this is an ancient (by internet standards) thread, I voted anyway. I don't see straight pride parades as homophobic, anymore than I see gay pride parades as being heterophobic. It's about the people in the parade, not the people not in the parade.
