13 Reasons Why We Don't have 'Straight Pride' -

7 Comments

Yup, I agree with this. I’m shocked that in this day and age people think that hashtag is acceptable. I’m delighted that our local city will have a Pride next year. I’ll be taking my girls because they’ll love the music, dancing and colours and because I want them to understand the Pride movement.

That’s wonderful to hear – I hope you all have a lovely time.

I was shocked as well. Certainly didn’t get the joke! X

I don’t think you need the apology/disclaimer at the end! I can’t see offence being caused.
I popped on to Twitter yesterday and saw this was trending, I was so furious I promptly popped off again. The points you both make, the map and the quote are just perfect. Great response to a frankly ridiculous concept (I assume it was a very bad joke rather than the product of someone’s actual sensible brain)… X

Thank you, lovely. I just didn’t want it to sound like I’m bashing people.

That’s what I was like yesterday. I couldn’t believe it.

Donna says:

Your apology is completely unnecessary. Such a ridiculous day and I am so glad you wrote this. I’m glad we don’t need a straight day but I’m also glad that there’s Pride – it’s an awesome celebration! x

I wish the World was just accepting of all.

Wow, I hadn’t seen the hashtag but what nonsense – “Whooooo! We’re the default! We can go through life without giving the matter any thought!” Why on earth would that need a celebration?!

(I did laugh at your map, though – very deadpan)
