I never understood when and how "gay pride" came to mean "Behave badly in public." If heterosexuals did some of the things that some gay people do in gay pride parades they would be arrested.
If I were gay, I would take pride in being part of a gay pride march in which people *didn't* behave like coked-up perverts. Most gay people do not behave like freaks, but it seems counterproductive to me to show off the ones that do.
I tend to disagree. I'm in college, and a favorite pastime of ours is called "streaking the hollow." Oh, and I am pretty sure there was an incident where a sorority president and her boyfriend had sex on the lawn of another fraternity's house. Straight people and gay people act like idiots, because the common thread is that they are PEOPLE.

Totally agree.
At this college's gay pride week, I couldn't find one reported incident of 'inappropriate sexual behavior'. Or 'appropriate sexual behavior' either.

Hah. That is because you're hard-pressed to find sexual behavior that is ever appropriate. ESPECIALLY in college.

Not sure what you're saying...
Is sex never appropriate?
And at this college's gay pride celebration, I couldn't find any mention of sex, good or bad, so I'm not sure why it was even brought up at all.

I wasn't referring specifically to the event mentioned in the article, but was making a more general point. And I accept the correction about the difference between a "march" and a "parade" - good point.

Not in public.

And it was brought up because the thought of gay sex at all is considered a problem.

many of these guys will be "deployed" that is, no sex, so they first wank, then go into male bjs and then into male sex!

You're a liar.

There's nothing you see in a Pride Parade that you don't see on the Miss America Pageant. At most, people in revealing swimwear or equivalents.

And there's lots of other parades for str8 people that are just as "racy," and lots of public venues where str8 people engage in sex.

You have a double standard because you're a lying bigot or because you've internalized homophobia. Or maybe both.

Maria, since you are a guy, how do you feel about homosexuals?

Yes, everyone who disagrees with you MUST be a lying homophobic bigot, since you are the sole repository of all truth and justice. That seems like a perfectly reasonable and mature way to engage in discussion.

Have you considered therapy to deal with your anger issues?

You "forgot" to address the content.

At what public Pride event did you see anything more explicit than women in skimpy bathing suits during the Miss America pageant, or skeezier than anything you can see on an MTV reality program?

And on what date. Be specific. Liar.

See, when people don't make the least bit of sense I know they have an agenda, be they a "Republican homosexual" or a talibangelical playing one on the internetz.
