Innapropriate behavoiur by people who have made poor life choices. Ever notice normal people never have Hetero Pride Parades in Gay comunities, or anywhere for that matter?

This is just further evidence of how these people want to impose their aggenda on an uninterested public majority of self respecting individuals who don't give a damn about anyones sexual orientation. Such open lewd displays of sexuality are not only unwelcome, but not innapropriate for adolescent children as well, who just want a fun day at the beach, or where ever.

If they think they are being discriminated against, it is because of thoughtless actions and parades like this that they get the negative attention they seem to attract in so doing.

Sexual orientation is a personal and private matter that has no place being imposed upon the general public, and to do so shows a dissrespect for your fellow citizens. This is nothing more than a bunch of thoughtless, self absorbed people who are fixated on their sexuality to the point that they have to wave a flag in public about it, which is really pretty pathetic. They need to move on and leave the rest of us alone, as this kind of thing is getting pretty old.

Sure, they are free to express themselves, but in this case this is a group who is pushing the limits by all of them hanging onto the branch of the Liberty tree to the point that they are going to break it off, and if that keeps up, once all the braches are broken, the Liberty tree dies.

'nuf said, common sense, but sadly these people just don't get it.

Amen to that,
just so wrong on so many levels, but like you said, it's a basic lack of respect for your fellow citizens feelings and privacy rights. This kind of in your face behaviour has no place in a public venue and is an affront to most people, who find it repulsive and bizzarre. Is it any wonder, given the foregoing that there is a stigma attached to these people that never will go away? And why is that? It's a basic law of physics that states that for every action, there is an equall but opposite reaction. If you keep picking at a wound, it will never heal, and when you finally do quit picking, it leaves a scar.

If pride and equality were the real issues here, then like everyone else, they would not push it and get on with their lives. Sadly, this is only an excuse to get away with whatever they think they can, with no regard as to anyone else may feel.

Hey, look at it this way:
They charge money at the circus to see the freaks in the sideshows, this freakshow is for free!

This way we can all see just who they really are.
This is every parents nightmare, come true!

Run along and play with your Tonka trucks. The grownups want to talk, and you're interrupting us.

Oh, and do learn to spell.
