All these groups that call themselves "Pride." I'm still wondering where the pride is.

There's a very real sense of accomplishment inherent in marginalizing homophobic filth, for starters.

You're sexually sick is all. You gotz problemz.

At least twice I have provided you with examples and links demonstrating gay pride and you still can't figure it out. You're just going to have to face the fact that you're exceptionally stupid.

Did you ever hear the phrase that a picture is worth 1,000 words?
I've seen clips from these 'events' and they showed men on their knees on leashes, they had on leather dog masks. Explain it to me again, where is the pride?
Is it the guy holding the leash or the guy on the end of it? Is it the guy with the assless leather pants? I never saw anything that should be marched down Main St USA.

That wasn't us; dum dum

That was the BDSM crowd at the Folsom Street Fair. As you can plainly see; BDSM people are heteros

By contrast; GAY PRIDE is entirely and distinctively different. We're breathtakingly CLASSY!

We've all seen photos of heterosexuals cavorting and sexually assaulting at Mardi Gras and spring breaks.

You just don't look at photos of heterosexuals, because they usually (in the mainstream media) tend to emphasize the women in various states of underdress - not your obsession.

You're very sick is all.

They must be proud of how sick and disgusting they are.
Apparently nothing is more threatening to a "religious" closet case than some openly lgbt people laughing and joking about uneducated, reprobate homophobes.

I'm happy to reply to sexually sick closet cases with the appropriate calumny. My fear is that they'll one day come out and the lgbt community will have to interact with or account for them in some way.

Yech.

No, Cletus, the point was about dealing with sexually sick closet cases such as yourself after they finally come out.

It's an unpleasant situation for lgbt people.

When was the last time you ventured out of your room? There is a world out there you know.
Give Topix a rest for a couple of hours. Take a walk or something. You could use that time to think up some more idiotic user names.
A closet case advising someone else about being out?

Even the most cretinous fundies realize by now that I have a whole list of mocking user names; I need more user names like talibangelicals need more homosexual scandals in their ranks.

Glad to hear you dislike them (the former.)

I see what you are saying; you are admitting that you are psychotic, even by homosexual standards.

There's nothing at all shameful of taking pride in what you do even if its gay butt sex.

Where would America be today if out forefathers had no pride in themselves and break the bonds of servitude.

I say if there is to be gay sex in the world,them America is best at it!

Take that Comrades!
