Stop your whining and set one up if you want it that bad. No one is stopping you.

Or are you one of those liberals who expects the government to do everything for you?

No, we don't expect the government to do anything FOR us; after all, we're the normal majority. It's what they would do TO us, like charge us with "hate crimes" and send the thought police after us.

Then quit whining and do it yourself. What kind of welfare queen are you that you expect everyone else to do the hard work while you reap the rewards? If you want a straight pride parade, do it. Quit crying like the little liberal you are and be a man for a change.

At least the queers have initiative.

The pride parade is about finding members in a common community and being, for once, in the majority, in large numbers. there is power in numbers, as you know. for those of you who are unwilling to accept that many different types of people inhabit this earth, i'm very sorry. you suck. by the way, i'm straight, but as an atheist, i'm not blinded by religious ideology, which has already caused so much pain to so many people.

The homosexual pridefulness (Imagine, being proud of perversion) has spilled over. I went into a Wal-Mart today and encountered two really ugly "guys", one wearing a T-shirt that had huge letters on front reading "VAGINA, It's not a dirty word". I was tempted to ask the "guy" why s/he wore that shirt since s/he didn't have one but I just walked on in disgust.

I have to walk on High Street along the parade route. Now I am scared to touch anything there for fear of catching the diseases those people carry. Why does the city let them gather in such large groups in such public places? Aren't they concerned about HIV and AIDS spreading? Mayor Coleman, it's my city too! Why aren't you protecting me?
you need to go back to school if you think you can catch AIDS from walking down the street.
Why does the city let "them" gather in such large groups in such public places? It is called the First Ammendment you fool and it guarentees people the freedom of assembly. Wow. You really suck.
What does any of this have to do with Coleman? Do you need him to wipe your bum too so you don't catch a disease. How old are you? 12?

and even if it wasn't, clearly the big problem is a parade.
