Gay Pride parades have become traditional events in many cities, and a lot of us join in the celebration if just to show support for the LGBT community. Would you be just as willing to join in a Straight Pride parade to show your support for the straight community?

Love your take on it, LandmarkWealth. I just selected your comment as BEST.
Aren't all parades rooted in ethnicity: Xmas, Thanksgiving, St. Pat's Day, etc.? And diversity in the workplace & classroom is essential to bring in a variety of views & ideas. Suck it up & deal with it? Better to respect it & enjoy
Except maybe now, when normal people are discriminated against by those who object to them being normal?
Please provide more detail as that makes no sense. I'm guessing your perception of normal is only what you are and anything you don't like isn't "normal". Sad view if that's the case. I doubt anyone is fighting to keep you from marrying.
I would describe normal as a behavior that 97% of the population engages in. If you were late for work 3% of the time. It would be a fair statement to say you're not normally late for work.
LandmarkWealth answered for me, thanks.... I don't fight to keep anyone from marrying, but I do reserve the right to maintain the definition as it has always been.
You are entitled to your opinion and I will be entitled to minding my own business when it comes to what other's want to do with their love lives instead of fighting over the interpretation of a word.
It's hard to mind you own business when people are parading their business in the street. Which was the genesis of the question.
Heterosexuals have been parading their business in public forever just in other ways. Maybe no one would need to parade if they were treated fairly and equally to begin with.
Funny, I must have missed those parades. Unless, just living is considered parading. People who want to be treated fairly need to stop self identifying themselves as outsiders. They could learn a lot from a man like Jackie Robinson
peeples, I would agree but the KKK still occasionally puts on parades, and I don't feel they are discriminated against, just disliked for their hate-mongering.
I agree. However, just as we are happy to have heterosexuals join us in our celebrations, expect a few rainbow flags to show up.
