You haven't seen a sorry spectacle until you've seen a gay pride parade. If people want to make a statement about homosexuality then they should do it in a gay pride parade.
You haven't seen a sorry spectacle since you've seen a spring break festival. If people want a statement about heterosexuality then you should do it in a spring break festival.

. If it wasn't for all the heterosexuals there wouldn't be any gays produced, thus no gay pride crap to fight about. I'm not against gays or any other group but at this rate I will be. Stop pushing your agenda down everyones throat. No pun intended. Why all of a sudden do gays want to march in this friggin parade? I will tell u why. They feel emboldened by all of the states passing gay marriage and they are trying to force everyone to agree and celebrate there lifestyle. Give it up. Not gonna happen. Especially with this kind of tactic.

We are inundated with gay BS on a daily basis. It would be great if you just minded your own business and left the rest of us to mind ours.

Why couldn't they be produced by MassEquality?
What? I just gave you a letter signed by the veterans whom Mass Equality represented. A better question is why the South Boston Allied Veteran's Council is as dishonest as you are. Don't you think lying hurts the reputation of veterans more than the fact that some are gay?
Why did they refuse to march as veterans?
They wanted to march as veterans who happen to be gay. I know that you despise the way you can't get your mind off of hard-core man-sex whenever you hear the word gay. But that's YOUR problem, not ours. Help is available. You should seek it.
Why did they insist on identifying themselves as gays?
For the same reason every other group from marching bands to service organizations identify themselves: To show that their group is part of the community and supports the event.

What has that got do do with gay veterans joining the Evacuation Day celebration? About as much as lewd behavior at Carnival or Mardi Gras.

Oh, but I forgot. You can't get hard-core man-sex off your mind.

Really? Just what else are you "curious" about? I wonder why someone who claims to be straight and hates gays stays on a gay forum.
