    Your sexuality is something you're born with and not a choice


    or

    Being LBQT+ is a point of pride

    "You all want a straight pride parade but where's your straight stonewall?," asked another user, who added: "Where are the families throwing you out for being straight? Where are the police raiding your bars, invading your privacy, fining and locking you up for existing? You want the fun part, but can't handle the worst part."

    [This year is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots which led to the birth of the US gay rights movement in June 1969.]

    Former Minnesota State Senate candidate, Shawn Olson, suggested that rather than be aggrieved by the lack of straight pride events, heterosexuals should "be grateful you don't need one".

    When straight people are persecuted as gay people were and are then they can hold parades but as they are not and indeed never will be then they should simply let the LGBTQIA community get on with their rejoicing at no longer having to hide or die.

    Did you thunk that up all by yerseff? Perhaps you're unaware that MANY parades are simply to celebrate Thanksgiving, or Christmas, or Military Service, or a football victory or..... Sheeeeesh, you can only have a parade if you "are persecuted"?

    So in your view only people who have recently suffered persecution are allowed to have a parade? What about those parades meant to celebrate something, such as those done in honor of a winning team? And what about St. Patrick's Day parades? Should they now be verboten?

    Maybe participation in parades should be limited to those who produce evidence that they have personally suffered persecution, rather than being open to anyone who just happens to claim they have been persecuted - because someone they heard of was persecuted in the mid 20th century.

    But I kinda enjoy marching in our local JuneTeenth Parade!

    A) Everybody keeps their clothes on
    2) It's G-rated
    C) It usually has horsies!!!!

    That IS a worth-while celebration though.
