Default Straight Pride Parade in Boston causing a stir

Quote:
A lively discussion has kicked off on Twitter over the merits of straight people having their own Pride events.

A plan by a group in Boston, US, to hold a '"straight pride" march in August has sparked more than 45,000 tweets in the last 24 hours.

The group - Super Happy Fun America - has applied to the city government to hold their march, and approval is currently pending.Three men behind the event include John Hugo, who was the Republican candidate for Massachusetts' 5th Congressional District in the 2018 mid-term election.

On the organiser's website, Hugo is quoted as saying: "Straight people are an oppressed majority. We will fight for the right of straights everywhere to express pride in themselves without fear of judgement and hate."

Another organiser, Mark Sahady, is a member of a group called Resist Marxism which in 2018 held a "free speech" rally that was outnumbered by counter-demonstrators.

In a statement to the BBC, the Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh said: "Every year Boston hosts our annual Pride Week, where our city comes together to celebrate the diversity, strength and acceptance of our LGBTQ community.

"This is a special week that represents Boston's values of love and inclusion, which are unwavering. I encourage everyone to join us in celebration this Saturday for the Pride Parade and in the fight for progress and equality for all."

Although the straight pride event has not yet been confirmed, it has not stopped many people weighing in to criticise the idea.

"Every day is a straight pride parade," wrote author Craig Rozniecki, arguing that heterosexuals' privileged position over gay people renders the concept of their needing pride events redundant.

You would have to wonder what motivates people to copy the Pride March and I just don't think it's really about celebrating sexuality. Straight people are not oppressed for their sexuality, that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard

Straight pride is quite daft tbh. Mind, Gay Pride has turned into something totally different these days too, genuinely seems to (at least newcastle pride) be about who can gain the most attention by wearing the least clothes, prancing about in bondage gear..or being 'outrageous (read blowjobs in the street and that ), and the organisers ripping the eyeballs out of anyone in sight.

A hell of a lot of my mates refuse to have anything to do with the pride parades as they say these days its basically a 'show off your fetish' thing..rather than about acceptance and visibility like it used to be. Apparently you get charged for entry now too..

Mind, I guess having sex in the street IS a way to increase visibility..just in a bad way

Straight pride is obviously unneeded, however with how gay pride seems to be right now, I would say thats pretty unneeded too. Hopefully its just the newcastle one thats that way, but I doubt it.

Why is there straight pride!111!!! How unfair that straight people are not persecuted for their sexuality. Its just discrimination that they do not suffer so do not need such a day. I wish people attacked straight couples for holding hands so they could get more attention too. Waaahhhhh

Seems like the only way to resolve this issue is to scrap gay pride as a compromise
