Isn't it weird how people say they've got gay pride, or any kind of sexuality pride?
I'm gay. I'm content to be gay. I'm even happy to be gay. But not proud, because I didn't earn homosexuality. I was born with it. I'm proud that I can draw well, because I earned it. I'm also proud of my paychecks from work.
But not my genetics.
You guys seem smart. What are your thoughts on this?
GODDAMMIT THIS THREAD AGAIN
I AM SO GODDAMN TRIGGERED
It's pride as an in not ashamed.
consciousness of one's own dignity.
Words are polysemantic, goddammit why can't americans understand anything
I think every young gay person grapples with this a little. It's a sign of how much progress has been made really. It's a luxury to be openly gay and be lead a normal life.
Gay pride isn't about being proud of your sexuality, it's about refusing to be ashamed of it. Gay pride parades started with people with the courage to stand up and refuse to be ashamed of who they are and let everyone see that they're not perverted monsters just ordinary people who deserve basic human decency.
Gay pride parades have largely morphed into celebrations of excess and hedonism over time as gay rights and acceptance advance and pride parades' political utility loses its relevance.
I don't like pride because to me it purports that "this is the way to be gay", it's an attempt at being accepted through a very strict set of rules. Once a year do this, walk here, say this, so on and so forth.
I think acceptance should come from actions not belief, to me that means being an upstanding citizen and not requiring any rights from a point of minority but as a human. There shouldn't be gay rights - there should be human or individual rights.
I also see it as very self-segregating, same thing with gay bars.
They are for being able to hit on people without the fear of violent retaliation or rejection. There are no straight bars and bars that are just bars doesn't function like instant meat markets. With the advent of hook-up apps many straight people go to bars to socialize, dance or just sit around and converse with people they haven't seen in a while.
As such gay bars becomes a self-segregating endeavor. If there were exclusive straight bars that denied gay people entry there would be an uproar.
If people are proud of being gay or bi, let them be. Sure, they were born this way, but all in all, as long as they don't consider themselves better than other people based on their sexuality, it's all good. As someone has already mentioned, pride here means not being ashamed. I'm not ashamed of being bi, so you can say I have my bi pride, but I don't consider myself better than anyone else based on my sexuality.
>What are your thoughts on this?
It's a tool for attention whoring breeders so they can flaunt their feigned acceptance on social media in a desperate attempt to add an extra inch to their E-peen in today's online circle jerk of moral vanity.
pride is about telling society that these activities that have been shunned are perfectly normal and you are not ashamed of the acts, or your life.
>You dont have to be proud of your sexual orientation, just be proud of who you are.
i am literally the opposite of a attention whore. If people found out i that i'm gay they would immediatly link the looks and character of my bf to the ones of my dad. Also it would fucking ruin my trolling because the origin of the hatred for the smallest fascist cell, aka the family, would be way to obvious created by my butthurt
like it or not you caused this by treating them like some abonormal human being and discriminating against them.
if you accepted as normal they wouldnt fucking care, there would be no need to feel good about being something usual.
But NOOO you had to discriminate and reject them so weak faggots will need to take pride in something as retarded as being gay in order to survive
YOU CAUSED THIS, and you deserve to suffer for your idiotic hateful behaviour.
