LGBT individuals are roughly 4 times more likely to attempt suicide. Their rates of depression and mental illness are significantly higher than those of straight people. This isn't a month for being proud; it's a month for mourning people who are destroying themselves.

Straights get the ENTIRE YEAR except JUNE to Be happy of their sexuality. There’s also appreciation month for veterans (I think that’s what it’s for) not EVERYONE in the LGBT+ community shoves pride down people throats. Heck—even I DONT do that. I’m the B in LGBT+ IF you WERE wondering. I honestly could care less about pride month.

Exactly.....crammed down our throats

Republicans are often labeled as intolerant because we do not readily accept homosexuality, trans genders, or the gender confused. We are not intolerant at all. We accept that some people want to be the opposite of the gender that they were born with, after all, we don't murder them nor condone that, like the Muslims, which Liberals accept as allies, to our amazement. What we do not accept is the constant harangue of this being normal behavior. The cramming of this mental illness down our throats, and most importantly our children's, is not proper. We do not accept that we are being forced , by law, to accept this insanity. Say the wrong "gender pronoun" and you may be fired, fined, both, and/or imprisoned.

You can be mentally ill and say you are a man, woman, unicorn or anything in between, that is fine. But it is impossible for the average citizen to immediately know what fantasy creation another person identifies as. We will accept you into society, but don't touch our kids, or punish us for not readily knowing what level of insanity your mental illness is at.

We are doing our best, after all we don't burn you alive, nor toss you off of buildings, like your political allies, the Muslims do.

So, historically, the mentally ill are not punished with electroshock and drugs, it's you and your kids who get punished. OK.

Historically, gay people have not been punished, it's you and your kids who have been getting punished. OK.

And when mentally ill people are fined and imprisoned for being homeless, it's actually you and your kids being fined and imprisoned. OK.

And when Ronald Reagan released the mentally ill into the streets, it was Liberals who crammed mental illness down your throat. OK.

LOL!!! Fantasy and mental illness. Seems like you are the one's cramming. LOL!!!

The same people who designate the month are the ones who send the soldiers to die.
The soldiers die for the month of pride and get two days in exchange.

They die to protect that month from bigots. Many leaders of the U.S. and the Church are homosexual, even if that is a secret from you. They control the military and will protect their agenda.

If they're is a conflict between you and the people in charge of Pride Month, the military under command will side with the creators of Pride Month, not you.

yeah... I disagree, too.

It's not a mental illness. It doesn't change someone's mindset. They're still a normal person.
If you stood a lesbian person next to a straight person and studied their actions for a month, the only differences would be things that are different about everybody, like opinions and jobs.
The picture you have is just a bunch of homo phobics. It has no logic behind it. There's no proof that homosexual people have mental illness. There is, however, proof that there is a gay gene in everybody. That's why you can look at someone of the same sex and feel jealous if they have a better and more mature body than you. That's why you notice things like how large your best friends bust is or how muscular your cousin is.

I won't confirm or deny if I myself am lesbian or bisexual, but either way, the analogy stands:

You absolutely can not be told you aren't allowed to love who you love. If you like someone of the same sex or of an unrecognisable one, so be it! People should respect you as a person. No single body has the right to shame you because you're "different".

I don't care if people are sick of hearing about pride month or whatever. I really don't. That's their opinion, and I can respect that. What I do care about is when somebody shames and degrades someone for being who they are. It's gross.

And in fact I DO get your point. It's /beside/ the point. If one sexuality can be celebrated with pride /now/, why can't the other?

It's just like the whole phony outrage over the "it's okay to be white" posters, which was a harmless phrase that said absolutely nothing about any other skin color, despite the racism /inferred/ by those who look for anything to be outraged by. Only this time, it's about "it's okay to be straight".

My only point is the gay community isn't this accepting and supportive place everyone thinks it is and yeah I think it's fine that pride exists but the way it exists does more bad than good. It's a party in public streets that tons of people have to witness whether they want to or not and it lasts a month. That wouldn't even be so bad if it wasn't plastered with nudity and sexual imagery and then people bring children into that.

It's like being in high school again. Tons of gay men generally measure a guy's value by how attractive he is and by his sexual ability. Pride is about teaching people outside the gay community to be more accepting (using some very questionable methods) but no one ever thought to teach gay people to be more accepting of each other. The LGBT place isn't the supporting and accepting place it advertises itself as.

Then you must have a very harsh social environment. Either that or I only exist to my small community of friends. They say “like calls to like”. Maybe you should try to find your tribe — in the sense that your tribe consists of people like you, who understand each other’s struggle and grow from it.

I kind of hoped the tribe I was in is just "gay." Not some sub category. I don't identify with any of the "existing" ones as most of them are sex related, therefore I don't really feel comfortable with any of them. The gay community around me is quite small but very very hookup oriented, and often times very arrogant and ignorant. These are the kind of guys who defend sending nude pics to a complete stranger as "so what? It's just a dick. Don't be so sensitive." I've been called sensitive because I didn't appreciate a random guy asking me if I'm circumcised or not. When I told him that's none of his business he called me a prick.

The question “Why can’t we have a straight pride parade?” suggests that straight people are being deprived of something in some way. I just don’t see how that’s the case. Heterosexuality is embraced by our society. It is not a basis for discrimination. So my answer, in sum, is that no parade is needed.

Where exactly does the question suggest that? Without inserting your own narrative into the questioner's intentions, that is. I thought parades were supposed to be about celebrating something.

That's as bad as feminists protesting men's rights talks, claiming they're about nothing more than misogyny and oppression of women, and that anyone who would attend is "misogynist, sexist, racist (huh? O.o), **pe-apologizing, incest-supporting, women-hating scum".

Before you say Christmas is celebrated for a month as well and it's everywhere you turn, it's because it's an actual important holiday.

This is America, do what you want, celebrate what you want. When you insist that others celebrate with you, you are interfering with their right to pursue their own happiness. There are some LGBetc folks who insist on making the rest of us give a shit. That's what the meme is about. You don't have a right to celebrate in other's people living rooms.

Just as there are straight people who insist that LGBTQ people not have a pride month at all. And don't even get me started on how life is a straight pride parade. Walk through a mall holding the hand of someone of the opposite sex. Will that generate a dirty look? No. Bring home someone of the opposite sex to meet your family. Will there be disapproval? No. Do you have to “come out of the closet” to announce you’re straight? No. Do you live in fear every day for your life because someone might just decide to harm or kill you just because you're straight? No.

My point is that heterosexual relationships are encouraged and accepted in society. And while there is more approval for LGBT relationships than in past decades, there is still not full tolerance and acceptance for those relationships in society.

"there is still not full tolerance and acceptance for those relationships in society."

I'm no fortune teller, but I don't think any of us will live to see the day when there is full tolerance and acceptance by those definitions, if ever. I'm not sure that it is reasonable to expect that, either. It sounds unrealistically ideal. The world isn't perfect for African-Americans, women, Asians, poor people, or white men other for that matter. Your equal treatment might mean an equal portion of misery.

Something else to consider, relevant to the OP: there is a point where the level of publicity will work against you rather than for you.

Has a friend of yours ever been murdered just because they were straight? A friend of mine was because he was gay. He didn't take part in parades, he wasn't "forcing anything down anyone's throat", he was just trying to live a normal life. He just happened to have a pride flag sticker on his truck when he pulled into that gas station to get some gas that one night. Then he was brutally murdered.

One of the functions of a gay pride parade is to seek acceptance and understanding from society. A man like me doesn’t need to march in a straight pride parade because I can walk in any public space with my wife and not be harassed, judged, mocked, or harmed in any way because of our sexuality. I have NEVER heard stories about gay people going around and maiming or killing someone because they are straight, but I can point out, statistically, that there are, nearly, 9,000 REPORTED cases (more than half are not reported, according to the DOJ)
of violence against people that are LGBTQ every year, and that number has been going up the past several years.

I know lots of friends, neighbors, and co-workers who are gay. None of them flaunt their sexuality. What, by the way, does “flaunting it” mean? How does a person flaunt their sexuality? Am I flaunting my heterosexuality by wearing a wedding band? By having pictures of my wife and kids in my office? By making references to my wife?

People claim that what really offends them is public displays of affection. I don’t buy it. Simply put, I think a lot of people aren’t comfortable seeing LGBTQ people as couples. And I can think of some reasons why: it could be how someone was raised (a family belief system), it could be based on religious beliefs, or, most likely, it's because of homophobia, and them generally using religion or family values to back their homophobia up.

I'm sorry that happened to your friend. I do not condone that type of behavior and will not excuse it.

In my opinion, that is not what this meme is about. There are poor examples of humanity in this world, and it often seems like their numbers are growing.

And many people who aren't Christians DO celebrate Christmas, as simply a secular family holiday, a time to get together with loved ones and exchange gifts. The Christian version is not the only version, let alone not even being the /original/ version, which was just a celebration of the winter solstice.

For example, the Japanese have big Christmas celebrations, and the dominant religions there are Shinto and Buddhism. In fact, I believe they've incorporated they're own religious traditions into a half secular/half religious (but not Christian) version of Christmas.

Well I'm glad that you can see the point of the post, Christmas may not be a formal religious important event like that of the actual birth of Christ but what says that the birth of Christ can't be celebrated during December but just because the birth of Christ isn't technically in December doesn't mean the day in which Christians celebrate should be anyless important

Maybe so.
But you are right, some Christian's do not believe in Christmas at all simply because it is not when Christ was born.
In fact with some of them, their point is that the 25th of December was actually a pagan feast in Rome (which is true if researched) so that is why they don't celebrate it at all.

I guess the OP's original post was just trying to state that, we don't care who celebrates what, just don't force others to celebrate it as well of they do not wish to do so.

The point of Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Christ (even though we don't know the actual date of birth). While December 25 was a pagan holiday and was chosen as the date to celebrate the birth of Christ for multiple reasons, the fact remains that the Christmas had everything to do with the birth of Christ.

I think that's what your were trying to say.

It is symbolic of the time of Jesus' birth though, so I'm okay with celebrating it. :)

Christmas has become exactly what it wasn't supposed to become. It's full of greed, materialism, lust, envy, pride, and I am sure we can fit gluttony, sloth and wrath in there too. Honestly, truly religious people should be up in arms about THIS and not care what someone else does in their own private life.
