Regarding the term "HOMOPHOBE" ...Just because you don't agree with something, it doesn't make you FEAR it. I am NOT "SCARED" of a gay person. Just looking at the pictures from your little gathering confirms that you are not normal. Normal people do NOT dress or ACT like that. Sorry, Charlie. You will never convince me, otherwise.
Get over yourselves already! Nobody cares!
And you think the bikers that arrive in their orange and black halloween COSTUMES are "normal?"

Please, the gay population is generally much more educated and a lot quieter, more orderly and less trouble than the biker thugs. We'd be lucky to have them and I'm heterosexual. Just because someone is "different" doesn't make it good or bad. Each person should be judged on their behavior, from what I saw I'd welcome them back to our city any time.

Hmmm Orange must mean the tee's worn, does HD Spokes ring a bell LOL that's their Tee shirt color and the black I assume is the leather they wear so if they are in an accident it saves them from scrapes and cuts. Well if you think that NONE of those bikers (a lot of whom drive down here with bikes in tow and many are business owners and have money)could be homosexual...then you need to rethink things. You seem very narrow minded. Is it because you can't afford a bike or don't know how to ride?

I was just wondering how you and some others on here are able to say/prove that gays are "more educated" More educated than who? What exactly are you implying? And just because someone is more educated than someone else... does that make them a better person? have a better character? make better choices? I know lots of "educated" people who are slimbags, backstabbers, liars, etc. So being "educated" in my book doesn't impress me, to say the least.

Without a doubt, one of the things ailing this nation is the complete lack of respect for education. Our culture glorifies stupidity and ridicules intelligence and education.

Why the hell does it matter to you? If you are (a) not gay and (b) not into cock, then why would you care what gay men think in terms of the correct penis size? Seems to me you are trying really HARD to focus on what gay men think, when you can not apparently think for yourself on this issue or any issue.

I didn't go to this event, so I can't tell you about what it was like, but I have been to two other Pride events (not parades).

There are so many people on this thread screaming about all the "immorality", but there was none.

People of every age, style, and personality walked in sun, ate pretty good food, bought sun-catchers and tupperware and t-shirts, and sat on the grass drinking soda and iced tea.

Kids ran around their parents, a few transgendered folks mingled-glad that they could be free to be themselves and not fearful.

I did see two drag queens on stage entertaining, along with comics, dancers, drummers, and the men's chorus. The drag queens were no more inappropriate or disturbing than the millions of straight men who feel the need to dress as women on halloween.

And their fashion sense was much better.

I would not take my children to a wild pride parade, any more than I would have exposed them to mardi-gras or a collegs spring break.

But a pride festival is usually fairly family oriented--a place for ALL GLBTQ people to gather in the sun and relax without fear of judgement or attack.

The only immorality I have seen at these events are the pitifully few so called "christians" who plague the entrances, screaming at small children that their parents are deamned in God's eyes.

Now THAT'S immorality at it's height.

And I've seen the often straight "silent witnesses" that stand quietly and politely with their large rainbow umbrellas between the good folks, and the angry ranting fools with their signs.

So perhaps there is hope for humanity yet.

Education does not necessarily make one intelligent.

To the poster, Quest: I think your story is a little far-fetched, don't you think?

If the bikers must go, then the GAy pride as they call it needs to go away also. This is just teaching our kids that the world is ok for you to SIN!!!! This is a one way ticket to hell
That sad thing is you "really" believe that. How did this festival affect you in ANY way??? If it wasn't in the paper you probably wouldn't have know it even happened. And to compair it to the bike rally is silly. 300 people at the train depot is a little different that 300,000 EVRERYWHERE....not to mention the people at the pride event LIVE HERE!!!

Jack Twist, if you went to church then you know what the Word of God has to say regarding the homosexual lifestyle. You are informed so proceed with caution.
Love the sinner, hate the sin.

What church would that be? Budist? Jewish? Greek Orthodox? People forget that there is more than one religion and it doesn't make theirs right. Especially the Xtians
Oh Please

Since I am not attacking the homosexuals, you assume I am one as well. We deserve the right for our Gay and lesbian children to be educated without harassment. We deserve equal rights because we are human. We deserve the right to raise our families in safe neighborhoods.
And yes you are pushing your sexual ideas on me. You suggest that every one should have sex the same way you do. The fact that you become disturbed when presented with ideas that are contrary to your own highlights your intolerance.
If this is true, why do so many northerners still keep coming here. Do all of us a favor and stay where you are. Not everyone here is ignorant or prejudice or racist. Once again another person judging everyone by the actions of a few. You are just as bad as they are.
