We just thought about the safety of people participating in the parade of their safety

He said safety twice...

You would think the Gay Community would be more organized, what with all the secret meetings they have about destroying the sanctity of marriage and oppressing the Christians.

There will always be those slackers who can't be bothered to come to the meetings.

Hmm, population 38k...

There's enough of them to call it a community? It sounds more like someplace people come from.

You usually don't expect the organizer to be that guy, though.

Seriously? Well, I can help on the logistics. I will happily load whatever expensive item she needs moved into my truck.

So the parade was cancelled because the RIAA wouldn't let them perform The Safety Dance in public without paying a large fee?

Safety and best interest eh? Yeah, **** need to shut their sinholes and and keep their disgusting 'lifestyle' to themselves. Nobody (normal) cares. But a bunch of **** walking down the street WOULD make some good targets. Like ducks at a carnival.

A man going by "floydmoist" is coming out as anti-gay complete with death threats?  Sounds like someone is in the closet.

Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For "Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. - Peter 3:8-11

God likes tolerance too.

 
2013-06-21 08:01:02 AM  
Uh, subby, "the gay community" is just all the local gay people, they don't necessarily know each other.
I'm straight, for instance, but I doubt you could ask, say, President Obama about the last straight event I was planning to do (it involved a tavern, and my last paycheck).  It's not really a common ground for direct association in most cases.

//I'm... not really sure how the news team failed this hard to find the event organizer, since apparently the event was permitted so the public paperwork should have his contact info.

There are a lot of drugs at Pride Parades, depending on the city.  However, there is a lot of regular, decent people who love the camaraderie. And now that gays are assimilating into society more, we have kids, dogs, and other family things.

I always equated pride with something that has been accomplished that many people can't, or won't do.  I'm not proud of being straight any more than I'm proud of having 5 toes on each foot, so I've never understood the mentality behind a gay pride parade.  It has always come across to me as more of a "Let's rub something many people find distasteful in their faces" parade.

One of the local Friends of Dorothy is planning a pride march.  In the County.  Granted, it's in the largest "city" in The County (Population: 10,000 or so), but it's still funny to me.  There might be, what, 5 or 6 gay people that'll end up participating.  Although maybe I'll be surprised, who knows.

You have also never been oppressed.  If you were in a minority group that faces discrimination, trust me, you would understand.

I get it - If I was ever oppressed by some 6 toed people then it totally makes sense to have a parade to shout how proud I am of having 5 toes.  Your argument is BS and I have been heavily discriminated against.  That doesn't make me proud of my skin color, sexual orientation, etc.  They are what they are.  I haven't accomplished any of them, so there is no pride involved.  I'm proud of running a mile in under 5 minutes.  I'm proud of how I am raising my children.  I have no sense of pride about how many toes I have.

I understand this point of view- I had it myself at one time.

But I've come to realize the real importance of Pride events-- it is to show those who are struggling to fit in with society that there ARE people out there like you, who live fulfilling, happy lives.

In fact, I have seen a trend toward dropping the word "gay" from Pride events altogether- because the real good that these events can do can help people from all walks of life who feel isolated and alone.

So before you dismiss Pride events as an excuse to "rub something distasteful in your face", try to have empathy for the gay youth out there, especially those in rural America, who feel they have no future in their community. And also try to realize that the overwhelming majority of participants in Pride parades are no more distasteful or outrageous than participants in parades and festivals of all types- it's the flamboyant and outrageous participants who get their photos taken, because that makes for a more interesting news spread.

Presque Isle Pride? That might be worth a drive! Down on the coast we attended a Downeast GLBT film festival, and there were about 20-30 people in attendance. I think we were the youngest ones there!

I, for the life of me, am not even sure it's still going on.  The organizer(s) may have opted to bail, like this guy in TFA did.  *shrug*
