    Its calling attention to them. The desire the attention in order to get the word out that what they participate in in normal.

    While I disagree with the sexual nature of a lot of the processions at pride parades - as they strongly promote the belief that homosexual relationships are all about sex rather than about romantic love and attraction - a parade, any parade, is about SPECTACLE. When you're trying to visually convey - and in an exciting, quick-to-grasp manner - the idea of acceptance of homosexuality, bisexuality, and transexualism not a lot comes to my mind OTHER than blatant displays of a sexual nature. I still think it's perpetrating the wrong image however.

    Pride parades are not very sexual, and your posting makes me think you have never been to one. I march every year in Chicago's Pride Parade with the Illinois State Bar Association. I have never seen anything sexual taking place at the parade.

    They are just being themselves. I'm sure there r some gays who wish the others wouldn't be so outrageous, but to each their own. lol!

    They want the attention because they aren't "normal." I seriously believe that if it's legal, they won't call so much attention to themselves.

    As a bisexual, this is the reason I don't go to these parades. It achieves the opposite reaction that we want from many heterosexuals who already have this idea of what we're like and events like these just reinforce those conceptions.

    Because as much as they try and claim that it's about "loving who you want to love"; it's more about "sex without repercussions".

    And the "marriage" thing? That all boils down to money. If it was just "love", they could just live together forever.
  • Noobcake Outta' ... 2012/08/07 05:42:50

    So, if you're married, did you choose to marry your wife for financial benefits, rather than just 'live together forever'? What makes most straight people decide to marry as opposed to live indefinitely in a defacto relationship? I can't discern any ulterior motive for marriage that is exclusive to heterosexuals. Please enlighten me.
  • Outta' ... Noobcake 2012/08/07 13:45:04

    We lived together for 15 years, and got married because my employer said I could not take advantage of a employee benefit (that gays could take advantage of WITHOUT being married) unless I could produce a marriage license.

    Imagine that, bias against straight people.

    I'm sure if homosexual marriage was legal in the state you worked in that would be reflected in your workplace's policy. You didn't make it clear exactly but I imagine that this benefit was available to gay people who could prove they were in a defacto relationship - or perhaps had a civil partnership, if that exists there -, not just any old single gay person, surely.

    It isn't fair that a straight employee is required to show a marriage certificate to receive whatever benefit when a gay employee isn't - but when the gay employee can't possibly provide a marriage certificate the only alternative to this situation is to deny all gay employees, regardless of their relationship status, that benefit whilst still providing it to straight, married employees. I don't think that would be fair, either. Now, if gay people could marry in your state that would remedy the situation.

    ...They want you to taste what they taste. Hence, the reason they have the need to shove 'it' down everyone's throat. But mostly because they have zero respect for the rest of humanity as well as themselves.

    ...you took all their rights away, all they have is each other and their parade.

    It's probably because they come right down Main Street.

    Iv never watched one, ive always just seen pictures. And I as a person have never taken ANYONES rights away...assumptions...Gay people have just as many rights as a straight person.
  • Kyra Trish 2012/08/06 17:25:04
    Kyra
    So you never watched one but claim they are sexual? No one is humping in the streets.
  • Trish Kyra 2012/08/06 17:26:08

    The pictures are the proof. Do you not see the sexual things they do? Its like marti gra but waaay worse.

    I'm not saying that, i'm saying that everything about gay parades are centered around sex, sexual things. I'm asking why? Why can't it just be a bunch of guys or girls holding hands share a kiss or two? That is showing pride, not laying all the things you do in the bedroom on public streets, children could be watching for God's sake.
  • Kyra Trish 2012/08/06 17:40:21

    children shouldn't be offended either.

    Children may not be offended, but they will forever have penis's, vagina's guys and girls rubbing on each other ingrained in their mind. Even if it was a straight pride event with the crap gay pride parades do I would bar my child from watching. Your profile says your a proud parent, hmm makes me wonder how much you look out for your childs psycological well being.
  • Kyra Trish 2012/08/06 17:48:21

    How dare they see public displays of affection!
    We don't watch gay parades like you.... but my kids would probably act more responsible than you would in the situation.
  • Trish Kyra 2012/08/06 17:54:59

    Public display of affection is not bad. But there is a limit on how much you can show. I have never watched one so stop twisting words. And sure they would...
