just wondering. if someone was to organize a straight pride parade, would people consider it "hateful" or "homophobic?" how about if they held it at the same time there was a gay pride parade. thoughts.

Oh, you mean it's not straight pride day everyday? Why would they need to march? Everywhere I go, it's like a "straight pride" parade: Movie Theaters, Shopping Malls, Amusement Parks, and on and on and on.

If we LGBT's had equal rights, we wouldn't have the NEED to march. Give us our rights and we'll stop marching.

european/american culture is being methodically repressed.
any attempt to challenge this repression is considered KKK behavior.

I wouldn't think so, but then again, I've never heard of anyone being proud to be straight.

The way this Country has been twisted? Yes, the ACLU and their ilk would come apart at the seams. Sad.

I would LOVE to see a "straight pride parade". I'd pay to see the signs and the balletic interpretations. Do organize one.

what would we be marching for? or proud of? the fact that 50% of our marriages end and that 20% are not happy? or that you have 1 in 5 chance of having a good marriage...

Wow, for a group that only represents only 3% of the population, you sure seem intolerant of the other 97%
