I wouldn't consider a straight pride parade to be homophobic but it would be stupid.
Just as I suspected, Gay Tolerance is fueled by money. No, not family or love. Those are only the selling points. It's all about stinking money and benefits. Only in America.

To me pride is just a way to meet other gay people rather than going to a club. It's a way for people to see they're not alone. It's just a good time.

Pride has their own personal meaning for some people.
For some people it's a day they can be free and open about themselves without worrying people will hate them for being gay, say something rude, stare, or whatever.

I totally understand it, but stuff like that really isn't my thing. it just f's up traffic. protests annoy me too. people have every right to do them though, as I am a HUGE advocate of free speech and expression.

Homophobic or hateful ... which is it?

I understand.
The pride parade I am attending will be in a public park.
I personally know there are plenty of pride parades that tie up traffic.

I personally like protests better than parades but that's just me.

Not hateful.

Just redundant and unnecessary.

Same with any similar activities connected to white pride.
