    And then there's me, making reasonable points, being ignored by you. But then again why would you, you can't get a rise out of a reasonable person, can you?

    Oh definitely, anything other than that is so often being simply being self-righteous, so many people argue in such a way as to coax those who they're arguing with into falling into their predisposed stereotypes, simply so they can reassure their own beliefs and make themselves feel better about themselves.

    I always try and find common ground, it always exists. I have with one of the people I was talking to, the other seems to be here just to get a rise out of people though it seems.

    Stop being petty. Bring something worthwhile to this or leave it.

    Their take is satire but those types of things in parades are commonplace.

    God I forgot about things like that, I absolutely hate that side to the LGBT community, it grosses me out, and probably everyone apart from them tbh, it doesn't deserve to be presented as what mainstream gay guys are like.

    And around we go, forever locked in a circle. I despise religion not religious people. Religious freedom should be enshrined in national law but not to the extent it infringes on others rights. Eg gay marriage should be legal but churches shouldn't be forced to provide services, and for example people should be able to hold the right to withhold service to gay people if that's their belief (within reason) I may think their beliefs are misguided or bigoted, but forcing someone to do something against their beliefs opens a whole Pandora's box of issues. As much of a socialist that I am, issues like this don't need layers of laws and state intervention, a few simple laws to ensure certain freedoms are withheld are all that's needed, the rest can be left to the individual.

    Of course, I'm not proud of being gay any less than I'm ashamed of it, it just is. I do agree that aspect of pride is unnecessary, the only reason I'd take part in a parade is to stick it to hard-line Christians or even worse, Muslims (not all Muslims are regressive cunts but I'd be lying if I said I didn't hate Islam more than I hated Christianity).

    Not now of course, did you even read my post and the context it's in?

    Because people want to celebrate it, I personally don't really see the fuss and don't partake in pride parades because I don't care enough to really go, but I see their place and the reasons for their existence, as well as the reasons that straight pride is silly. The difference it makes, is if someone goes around screening ‘Kill the straights’ they're being a twat but we can move on with our lives and they don't really have any power. But when the entire apparatus of state is against you, it can really fuck up your life, an individual oppressing you is minute to an entire state doing it.

    People like that are cunts, I never implied straight people never faced discrimination because I had exactly what you've just shown in mind as examples of it, I was talking about institutionalised discrimination before it was derailed. @Nowak Please don't defend those people, there are ways to express a preference without being a discriminatory twat, @poochyena made a valid point.

    I have a complex relationship with BHM. On the one hand it's important that black people feel represented (even if they're the minority), but on the other hand I think where it's appropriate and relevant, history as a subject should become more granular and modular, allowing people to learn about whichever areas they want to learn about. For example we had to learn about the civil rights movement, cold war, boom/bust periods, and while some will find these areas interesting I'm really not that bothered tbh, I'd much rather learn about the late Roman Empire, or go in-depth in the Hundred Years War, or Nazism as an ideology (as opposed brown just skimming over WW2). So on the otherhand if people wanted to learn about, say, the Kingdom of Mali or the history of the Congo then they could. History, and how it's taught, is a passion of mine, if you can't tell. I do have to agree with you for the most part, it makes sense that the world is seen from the perspective of the dominant culture, least said country loose what makes them, them. Though referring to my point above, people should be able to learn about their heritage via the state. Assimilation is incredibly important, though to expect people not to have a syncretic approach with their own culture to it is asking far too much, I believe. I specifically worded my reply to avoid that misconception, stop being disingenuous and making farfetched interpretations. I specified institutional discrimination, like how Alan Turning was forced to be chemically castrated for being gay. Pride celebrates such a law being overturned.

    The way I see it, it's a celebration of the milestones made in LGBT rights, (decriminalisation, marriage equality etc). Straight people haven't experienced institutional discrimination based on sexuality, hence there's nothing to overcome, meaning no need for straight pride. Someone can be proud of what they are (straight, for example), but having a specific event based on it as an alternative to gay pride doesn't make sense.

    God the amount not people I've had to explain to about why straight pride makes no sense is genuinely depressing.
