I just can't understand this obsessive need to force their way in where they're obviously not wanted.
If it were for being branded " not wanted " I'm shure you wouldn't fit in quite a few places yourself , since being universally liked is well-nigh impossible . And how would you feel in such a case ? If some gays must believe in this religious hocus-pocus they have as much right as anybody else to participate ; they have their Master , Jesus Christ ,( who strongly disapproved of discrimination ) entirely on their side .

Will they act like people or will they act like gay people?
The article says they will be a group of gay vets. No problem with that.
It goes on to say that they won't be allowed to act like typical gays. That's good.

As long as you have your little stereotypes wrapped up in a neat little ball.

Hopefully most heteros will act like people instead of straight people during the parade.

It's the same thing. Homosexuality is the add on. They are the group with the disgusting parades. I can't figure out why they call them 'pride' parades, they are anything but.
I hate gay pride parades but after reading your shitass rants I'm for them.

They have every right to be who they are as do you you punk.

Myself...I hope you never become my neighbor..I doubt you'd have the economic ability but still. You're a gutter rat friend. All hopes are with you that you become something more.

Maybe they're just proud of not resembling people like you .. you must admit that's an achievement in itself .

Yeah, because Mardi Gras is so wholesome.

Hopefully the heteros don't start flashing their boobs for beads along the St Patty Parade route.

Turnabout is fair play. Maybe my wife and I will march in a gay pride parade to represent heterosexuality.

Hetero parades are going out of business from lack of pizzazz
.
So we're helping them spice it up for crowd appeal

We're the experts

Not all achievements are good. Look what they do to avoid resembling me. Men where pink shorts, dress up like women, act like strippers on Main Street. Again, where is the pride. I am proud to say I don't resemble them. They can march in the Boston parade but they can't carry anything with the word 'gay' on it, no rainbow flags. They have to be respectful.

Mardi Gras is one of the gayest events in the country. I'm glad you are beginning to see it my way. Gays claim it's second only to the "Southern Decadence Weekend."

I've never been to Mardi Gras and have no interest in going.

Yep, heteros flaunt it about as much as gays do.

Hmmm, so do they ban Americans flags too so they aren't "disrespectful" to the Irish?

A rainbow flag is disrespectful? How about this? http://www.sonotstraight.com/wp-content/uploa... In what way is that disrespectful?

Since St Pat's Parade is about celebrating the Irish, then ANY flag other than the Irish flag would have to be considered disrespectful.
Might as well wave the Union Jack.

The American flag represents the whole country, even you.
Are you suggesting there are no gay Americans or is your question just another example of your ignorance?
