    I know right? I hate being the whiner, but I think its a bit sad to see that amazing spectacle treated kind of like a party favour :/

    But HELL, who am I to judge right?? ;)

    yourname2000 saidSo Pride Parades: no problem. But backdrop to the first gay weddings in New York: too gay?

    Huh.



    I hate Pride Parades too. In fact, I think the way the gay community has stolen the rainbow and made it their "flag" is kind of presumptuous. Now every time a little draws a rainbow he gets bashed because it automatically means he's gay. They should have just kept the stupid pink triangle.

    Not even close to world's largest. If we go by width - it's 13th.. it's not in the top 100 for height

    Guys, I grew up 40 miles from Niagara Falls. They frequently have color displays, especially in the winter.

    You also have to remember that there is a tourism marketing angle in promoting places for gay marriages. We all have acknowledged that before...the boon to the local economy. It's kind of like how states started their lotteries before any of the neighboring states started theirs and created a significant increase to sales, until those neighboring states followed suit.

    The best part is that the rainbow was originally claimed as a Jewish symbol... It was a sign of the pact between humanity and god that he wouldn't wipe out the world's population again with a big ass flood. A little ironic, don't you think?


    No way, EVERYONE has claimed the rainbow.. its also the flag of the old Kingdoms of Kathmandu, Nepal, and the flag of the capital of the Inca Empire... Cuzco, Peru!

    Kinda like how whenever I draw a gold star I get bashed for being a commie, because of course thats a totally rational conclusion for society to make and it's all the fault of the damn commies. What I want to know is who gave the queers the right to hijack the colour pink and TRIANGLES of all things!!!. Now If you'll excuse me I have to go bash some kindergarten girls for being massive lesbians...

    Um, that would be the Nazis....yeah, pretty sure it was them who "gave us the right" to "hijack" pink triangles. Oh, they were so nice about it, too --it was our first choice and we got it--yay!!! We won!! Gooooooooo HITLER!

    German_concentration_camp_chart_of_priso


    I'm quite aware of the origins of the pink triangle, and it does nothing but reinforce my original point of mocking the whole notion of decrying anyones 'audacity' in associating any symbol with anything.

    Insert parties as appropriate and say in an indignant voice:
    "I think the way the ____________ stole the ____________ and made it their _______ is kind of presumptuous."

    Would somebody PLEASE think of the children!
