The nationalists and ultra conservatives are probably all on the Ukraine border. I hardly think the lack of violence at this one event indicates progress.

Progress in the world is not determined by how the queers are doing.

It's much easier to measure by simply looking at how annoyed and offended you are each day.

You know I have seen your comments on glbt stories for a while now.... for someone who hates us so much you sure are fixated on everything queer. There is nothing worse than a homophobic homo.

The Field of Mars is ever so much better a venue for "free speech" than a march through the street. Camera and audio surveillance is ever so much cheaper in one location.

Right, how queers are doing is how you keep time throughout your daily routine.

Self loathing homosexuals suckered into "pray away the gay" therapy are told to visit gay groups and harass the gays as part of their "therapy". The idea is they can't be gay if they hate gays. That openly hating gays will keep them from acting on their desires to want to have gay sex. Do you think it works?

Pretty sick isn't it.
