The more they flaunt this, the more people will sour to the idea. I don't care what you do in the bedroom, why do I need to see what you do in the bedroom? I'm just happy imagining that everyone just goes and sleeps in the bedroom. I not interested in what your kink is. Really I'm not.

All this being said, a straight pride parade is equally stupid. See above for my reasons.

I am really at my wits end with this species.


My thoughts exactly.

We live in an extremely tolerant world now. Personal freedom that doesn't hurt others is the norm. But no one wants someone else's lifestyle constantly forced into their view. Gay rights won. Woman's rights won. Know when to call it a day. When someone wins at any game, then proceeds to rub everyone'e nose in the fact they had a victory, no matter how well deserved it was, people sour to it. My kids don't have any clue what racism, sexism, or homophobia is. It's just normal to them now. But they can't understand why a parade full of half dressed people in various bondage and other attire thrusts around once a year and we're supposed to applaud it.

I can't agree with this more. Personally, I don't give a rat's ass what someone's sexual orientation is, nor do I give a damn what they do behind closed doors. If it makes you happy, then that's great.

The issue is, like Llama has stated above, is that 'Pride' has become a giant piece of nonsense that gets shoved down everyone else's throats 24/7, and it's too much! 'Pride' used to have a weekend and a parade. Then it morphed into 'Pride Week'. Then it morphed into 'Pride Month', with so many companies promoting it (mainly because they've been intimidated into doing so) endlessly.

A local member of the gay community here in Barrie recently complained that because the only gay bar closed down years back, there was 'no safe space for gays to go' and that he 'was afraid of crossing the street'. Give us a break! I saw a news article over a year ago in which two homosexuals in Saudi Arabia were rounded up by a gang, tied to chairs, and thrown off a 10-story building. One survived the fall, and was capped by one of the group that was carrying a pistol.

Here in the West, people don't really give a damn if your gay or not, as long as it doesn't infringe on them personally.

There is a lesbian couple that go to my gym a few times a week. They just started their memberships a couple of months ago, and when they first came in, they would hold hands during their workouts. Okay, fine. Whatever. But in the last few weeks, they make out at every machine they use, and even sit on each other and dry hump (no, they are not that good looking, from a guy's standpoint).

Yet, if anyone were to complain, we'd probably lose our gym membership because this is how it is now. No one can anything about anything anymore for fear of reprisal. It's gotten to the point that just for asking someone to stop that politely, you can more than likely end up being labelled as a 'homophobe' and possibly lose your job.

What does this say about society as a whole now?

I believe in peaceful coexistence, to a point. Where does it say that everyone else's beliefs can supercede mine? I thought we had equal rights in this country. Clearly, that's not the case anymore.

I get the impression that this is simply trolling the (far) left because their outrage has become utterly predictable. You can set a watch to their howling.

Outrage? Seen nothing but outright mockery towards the idea of celebrating that there's nothing special about you whatsoever.

Given how insular the west coast is, that is hardly surprising.

Exactly... it's like having pride of being tall.

There is no pride, there is no shame either.
It's an accident of birth, nothing more.

Being straight and being American are accidents of birth you had absolutely nothing to do with. It's like saying I'm proud to be right-handed. Big fucking deal. Unless you started off as a lefty and changed for your own personal reasons.

And what you're saying here is what Vladimir Putin meant recently when he said that 'liberalism is dying' (paraphrased).
He should know. His buddies in the KGB helped kill it. Although it took them longer than they hoped. But what we're seeing from the ALT-left is the budding re-rise of red fascism as they take over more traditionally liberal parties. It's simply harsh authoritarianism hiding behind of a cloak of socialistic cliches.

You can debate, discuss and even find middle ground and compromise with a Liberal. There's no such thing with a red fascist/leftist/ALT-left douche.

And I have to agree with CDN PATRIOT. I think most people in Canada were very supportive and thought "oh cool" when the Pride Parade first floated. They were fine when it became the Pride Event. But then it turned into a week and then a month.
Now, I've never had any issue with a person's sexual preference because I really don't care. But even I think a whole month is a bit extreme. I mean if the excuse is it's not about what they are but what they've had to go through, then the goddam Native women in Canada deserve a few successive 'Indigenous Women's Years' at the fucking least! Hell women in general deserve a few years at least if we're going to go by the "how much they suffered and still do" metric.

Well sense you asked. My latest bedroom kink is laying in bed listening to an audio book. When I feel sleepy I turn it off and lay in bed for 2-3 hours before I actually fall asleep. A big hurrah for insomnia kinks. [B-o]


One reason you have problems sleeping might be because you're staring at a screen right before bedtime:

TV is in the living room. I stream the audio book on there as I lay in bed. Set just loud enough to be heard in my room. Can't hear it a foot from my front door.
