This is not the same thing as inviting anyone into my bedroom beyond my husband. That would be PRIVATE, see?
Explain how naked, waxed, glittered dudes simulating same-sex acts in public parades, and demanding respect for doing so, is PRIVATE.

I'll wait.

Don't believe I've ever gone there.
The facts surrounding the APA vote [to remove homosexuality as a psychological disorder] are public and have been provided to you multiple times.

I am not "proclaiming superior knowledge of psychology." I am proclaiming knowledge of the political activism which forced a change in the APA's stance on this matter.

That's a really old chestnut.

As I explained to you yesterday, the overwhelming majority of what goes on at Pride events has precious little to do with sex--and a whole lot more to do with being able to walk around and enjoy a day with friends and family doing things that other kinds of friends and family do frequently--and do so in a safe and welcoming atmosphere.

And in fact, there are many in the gay community who really prefer that waxed and glittery gay dudes NOT be their primary representatives.

But, you wouldn't know that kind of thing because you rely on others like yourselves trading old pictures from San Francisco events, rather than going to the Columbus parade yourself. If you did go, you would see all kinds of things, from corporate support, to older established couples, to families with children, to parents of gays, to church groups proclaiming an open and affirming message to those who stand outside and shout ugly stuff.

This weekend there will be St. Patrick's parades all over the country and there will be no shortage of sequins or glitter--or buttons saying "Kiss me I'm Irish." Not to mention a lot of green beer. But, I don't think that any one of these things completely synthesizes what it means to be Irish.

No--a single biased version of what happened has been provided.

Remind me--who is your source on that?

Nobody is forcing you to change/possess any opinion. Stop being disingenuous.

Do you agree with every action/policy that state, local, or federal governmental officials perform/endorse?

Does your mere disagreement make their actions any less lawful?

Not an old chestnut; in fact, law enforcement is routinely instructed to suspend enforcement of public decency laws [i.e., special rights] during these LGBTQI events:

During the [annual] Folsom Fair,...the city of San Francisco suspends enforcement of public decency laws and permits homosexuals to parade the streets completely in the nude, "many having sx -- even group orgies -- in broad daylight, while taxpayer-funded police officers look on and do absolutely nothing," according to Matt Barber, policy director with Concerned Women for America.

Barber also pointed out the contradiction of recent Senator Larry Craig being arrested and removed from the Senate for soliciting public 'gay' sex, while numerous men and women are permitted to engage in openly 'gay' sexual conduct in San Francisco's streets.

[via illinoisfamily.org ]

Neither the local media folks nor the Seattle politicians represent the core values of Washingtonians outside of the Seattle city limits.

Consider how City of Seattle and King County government authorities...have corrupted the system in recent years by instructing law enforcement personnel to not prosecute violators of public nudity and indecency laws at homosexual events.

Who are you kidding? Any law establishing homosexual Americans as a protected class is forcing every American to uphold one opinion.

And, in fact, such laws already exist:

Pedophilia has already been granted protected status by our federal government. The Matthew Shephard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act lists "sexual orientation" as a protected class; however, it does not define the term.

Republicans attempted to add an amendment specifying that "pedophilia is not covered as an orientation"; however, the amendment was defeated by Democrats. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) stated that ALL alternative sexual lifestyles should be protected under the law. "This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these 'philias' and fetishes and 'isms' that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule.'"

Chaos is the product of moral relativism.

Quite clearly, if you honestly believe that you a have any right whatsoever to make determinations about the appropriateness or criminality of the sexual behaviors of people who are harming nobody, their rights ARE at issue.

Mind your own business, bible thumper.
