Absolutely not! It’s just doesn’t make any sense. There’s tons of jokes about people saying, “Yeah we get it your gay. ” But we have Mexican Independence Day we have Black History Month so why not Pride Month? It’s the same thing it would be like saying, “We get it your black. ” They are recognized for going through a lot. Just as LGBTQ community did. We don’t have a white day do we? No we don’t because they automatically had their month every month. Same as straight people they weren’t considered an illness. So my point is homophobic straight people didn’t want anything to do with LGBT people until the LGBTQ community was accepted. Now you want a straight month? Just annoys me that they would even consider it.

i totally agree! straight pride month is basically straight people saying they can’t handle it if everything’s not about them

i personally don’t have a strong opinion on this but i just have a question granted it seems like they are making a straight pride parade for fun whys it matter if there is one. i am a straight female and honestly i think that if there can be a pride parade for LBGTQ why can’t their be a straight pride parade. you don’t have to like it or agree with it but there nothing anyone can really do about it. Everyone  is given the right to have freedom of speech and if people want to have pride about being straight. let them.

but anyway i do thing the pride parades mean alot to the LBGTQ community and i do feel that straight pride would take away from them so i do understand that and i want to be more informed on this subject 🙂

Why can’t we? Isn’t this country all about equality? If the gays are allowed to do it, we should be able to have a parade too.

i’m not saying you can’t but just because you can doesn’t mean you should. straight people can have a straight pride, but they shouldn’t because it’s extremely disrespectful

on July 14, 2019

I don’t understand how it is disrespectful.

how about a pride parade for people who identify themselves as tables

 

on July 14, 2019

how about you stop commenting irrelevant things for attention

on July 14, 2019

Why the hell would I want attention on this dumb website. You’re just mad you can’t win an argument

And @undercoverspy tables are are more than welcome

a straight parade is disrespectful because it shows a complete lack of understanding of the queer community and history

on July 14, 2019

What’s a queer? Is that a bird or something?

on July 14, 2019

is an umbrella term for anyone in the lgbt community

What? Ew no. Pride parades are for the LGBTQ+, who are a minority and are oppressed. Straight people don’t need a parade, if you really want to go then be a straight ally and just go to the pride parade.

No. Ask yourself have straight people had to fight for the same things LGBT+ people have had to deal with? Has being straight ever been frowned upon? Has straight marriage ever been illegal? Has there been a country that has killed people for being straight? I could keep going and going. We celebrate pride and have parades and all because finally we can be who we want and be with whomever we want without being judged.( IN THE USA AND OTHER COUNTRIES THAT CELEBRATED PRIDE) In fact, we are still fighting to be who we want because not everyone accepts us still. :/

Can there be a straight pride parade, sure. Go for it. Should there be? Probably not. Let’s be honest and realize that throwing a straight pride parade would be seen as nothing more than a mockery of the LGBTQ community. If you throw such a parade out of true genuine pride for the idea of being straight then good for you, enjoy your parade. But that’s hardly if even ever the case. Its just making fun. Like saying all lives matter. All lives matter? Great, then why do black people have to remind us? They know all lives matter, they want you to belive it too and stop the exclusion. Pride parades, festivals, etc are events for people who have spent their life repressed and sheltered feeling ashamed due to social stigmas, to gather and know they are far from alone, to escape the harassment along with others who fight the same cause. Families disown people for this simple character aspect. I’m sure its rough for a lot of people. Not because they are LGBTQ, but because of societies reactions to it. Gay people want a parade, we want one too! It’s like a child who suddenly wants their toy they havent touched in ages when another child plays with it. There has never been straight pride events before, so now it cant be anything but an insult coming from hate. Stupid honestly. Like, how in any way whatsoever does someones personal preference in their sexuality mess with someone else’s life? It’s just people wanting control stemming from an old school belief. We used to think people were witches for dumb shit and kill them. Then we thought that was stupid as hell and stopped. It was common sense. Persecution over being gay has been around even way before that and is still an actual argument that is almost comical when you think about how silly it is. Hope this makes any sense at all lol. So on an end note, you can throw this parade, yet we will all know it’s not genuine and is just to crap on LGBTQ sarcastically. Parades suck ass anyway. Even my favorite things would bore me to death in parade form. Just to satisfy my humorous side, what would straight parade even consist of? Oh here come the burly totally not gay lumberjacks ! They toss protein shakes and bibles out at the crowd. But wait, do I hear the faint sound of David allen coe music drawing nearer. Yes, it’s the repressed emotion orchestra! Then it ends with jesus walking past everyone waving yelling a bunch of mean displaced hatre comments as he sprays a mist of over compensating toxic masculinity over the crowd. This is just a theory though.
