No, I don't see that. I see you using it as a "broad brush" to allow you to stereotype and stigmatize as many people as possible, with the incorrect belief that because they share ONE characteristic, they must share ALL the characteristics that you decide to ascribe to them.but none the less, their actions are consistent with their "lifestyle". as you can see i used the term correctly.
Oh, I certainly do. Every Mardi Gras, every Spring Break. They flaunt and party and debauch with the best of them. Right in the center of town.you certainly don't see straight people having pride events that flaunt their total disrespect for public decency, at least not in the center of town at the taxpayers expense.
The only "taxpayer expense" however, is the slight inconvenience of having traffic routes dedicated to parade routes for a few hours. Of course, this is true of ALL parades.
Although, straight people don't exactly celebrate "pride", as their childhoods and adolescents were not made into obstacle courses to be survived due to their being straight. They don't have the acheivement of enduring others who make it their life's work to strangle their rights and block their pursuit of happiness. Straight parades are just people partying to party.
