I fail to see what a guy riding nude on a bike
has to do with gay pride.
There are children there. He should be
arrested.
But I suppose in anything goes SF, it is okay?

This society is in big trouble. Could you imagine 20 years ago a "paper" would be showing a man riding down the street naked on a bike?

Whatever makes a newspaper think normal people want to see or read about this stuff? Save it for some rag that sells under cover at 7/11's.

Ironically, the exhibitionists have grown up, and discovered the internet. They are kind of on a roll. You may have noticed.

Why is every topic in San Francisco about bad behavior such as participating in homosexuality? What a disgrace! S.F. is a beautiful city that has been destroyed by liberals.

Come people, let's have some respect and consideration when posting. If these articles offend you, simply turn away and don't look at it. Let people love who they love without fear of public retaliation, ok? I'm sure most of you wouldn't like to be told what you can or can't do with regards to a consenting adult relationship.

Another misguided liberal. The articles being posted offer people who read them a chance to post their opinions. Are you saying only people that agree with the article or your opinion should post?

You mean if I post my disagreement with homosexuality or an article on gay marriage that constitutes retaliation?

I hope I shed light on how ignorant your paragraph is.

What's ignorant is your way about it! You have every right to an opinion;,however, there is no need to make assumptions and spew hate!

To prove my point, you stated I was "another misguided liberal." Sorry to disappoint you, but I am not.

Give me an example of what I said that is considered hate? Saying your a misguided liberal, which you are, isn't hate. It's just the way it is.

People like you are the reason California is bankrupt! Your "if it feels good do it" hippie attitude is what ruined that once great state. Now, people and businesses are leaving in droves.

Yet, propaganda articles are continually being written about homosexuality. Trying to glamorize seedy and destructive behavior as if it's the norm.

How disgraceful.

I think people in San Francisco just might have figured out by now that this celebration happens every year and not take their kids out for adult time in the streets. I mean, these people choose to have kids in that city; they know what's there; so they don't take their kids to the gay parades.

How disgraceful.
First you want an example of what you said that is considered hate : "Why is every topic in San Francisco about bad behavior such as participating in homosexuality? What a disgrace! S.F. is a beautiful city that has been destroyed by liberals." Tell me how this comment isn't malicious? What I see is nothing but negativity and ASSUMPTIONS! Please re-read what you just posted as well and you will find nothing but hate spewing from it.

Secondly, when I mentioned your comment on "misguided liberals" I was referring to the "assumption" part of MY statement. You must of missed what I said...

Now, we're adults here (or at least I think we are) so there is no need to call me a liberal when I already informed you that I was not.

Oh, and I hardly believe that "people like me are the reason California is bankrupt!" Come on Vito, let's be realistic. I never knew promoting love would cause someone like you so much grief?!

Well, I'll tone it down. However, what I wrote is not hateful. Nevertheless, it is a fact liberals have run S.F. for decades. Homeless wander the streets, there was more "medical marijuana clinics" than Starbucks and taxes are out of control. The State of CA is bankrupt. People and businesses are leaving due to high taxes. This all done by liberal policies. Now, am I lying?

In fact, taxpayers have to pay for sex change operations in S.F.

You say you're not liberal yet you support homosexuality, which is a liberal cause. You're not promoting "love"! You're promoting homosexuality.

Now, don't get me wrong. What two consenting adults do in the privacy of their home is not my business. However, we all know the homosexuals, that used to preach "stay out of our business" now shove their business down everyone's throats, excuse the pun.

I happened to be visiting SF when this parade occurred a number of years ago. We were told by the front desk of the hotel, not to go unless you can keep a straight face through anything, or you will be hurt or even killed. It is a beautiful city, however it put a bitter taste that we have never returned.

Absolutely! The homosexuals try to portray themselves as being oppressed. When in actuality they are very hateful to anybody that doesn't agree with their behavior.

When CA voted against gay marriage (prop 8) the radical homosexuals raided several Catholic and Christian Churches throughout the state. Many destroyed property and interrupted church services because they were so angry. They blamed Christians for losing.

To show you how cowardly they are the homosexuals only raided Christian Churches in white neighborhoods. They never stepped foot on the property of any Mosque or a church in the black community!

It is well known that they lost because most blacks voted against gay marriage. Blacks, because of Obama, came out to vote in large numbers. However, I guess the homosexuals took the path of least resistance and chose to demonstrate on the property of white Christian Churches.

I am a California native who has seen his state hijacked by the gay mafia.Since SF is a beautiful city why should I hide? On the other hand a guy could get hurt in an intolerant city like SF if he is not careful. The Hetero bashing is common place here. We are called breeders and haters when we don't want to watch two men simulating certain acts in public. Maybe the fruitcakes will move back to Chicago and New York where they came from and leave the rest of us alone. I am a warrior in the front line of the culture wars in California.Too bad most of the closets have been torn out of houses in the Golden state.
