’Straight pride’ parade draws marchers, protesters

A ’straight pride’ parade and counter-demonstration went off in Boston Saturday without any major conflicts. The parade was organized by an organization calling itself Super Happy Fun America, saying it believes straight people are an oppressed majority. The parade saw marchers carrying signs such as ’2020 Trump’ and ’Build The Wall’. Several arguments and minor fights were reported.

Let's fix the headline: "Professional troll Milo Yianoppolis leads straight pride parade and 1000 idiots fell for it and got offended".

The guardian doesn't seem to understand that to have a counter protest, you need a protest on the other side not a parade.

Everyone that's ever been born has been created by straight sex, if that's not a perfect record and something to be proud of what is it then?

See, if the alphabet people didn't get so pissed off about it, 200 people would have turned up. No one would have noticed and they would have hung around for about an hour before going to the pub. They made it the big deal they didn't want it to be by getting mad.

why does the guardian say that there where counter-protesters at the parade? Weren't they just the protesters?

It's LGBTPQ. The P is silent. There are many forms of sexual deviance. None of them are something to be proud of. The pedophiles run this clown show. Wealthy elites in NYC and Hollywood are behind the normalization of perversion.

Amazing that the world has turned so "upside down" that a "straight pride" parade is necessary or controversial.

So the LGBT activists think they have a monopoly on being proud of they way you were born?

If I lived closer to Boston I would totally have gone to the Straight Parade as a participant. The fact that the Left does not understand that this is a 1st Amendment issue is pretty indicative of how anti-free speech they are. That they resort to autistic screeching in response is hysterical.

I've always wondered why the rainbow was chosen as a gay pride symbol; do they really need the entire visible spectrum?

From the Guardian: 'Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley are urging people to donate for those people arrested. “One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade? Contribute to the bail fund for the activists,” ' Hang on, that's not supporting the LGBTQ community, that's supporting criminals. Those people were arrested for a reason.

Ah, alphabet's just mad that if too many Straight Pride parades happen that people will take notice at how far gay pride parades are pushing the line into illegal concepts like exposure to minors.

Fudge pushers beware. The normal people are coming and they think you’re a bunch of depraved perverts. Run!

I guess the left is successful if only 200 people are proud to be straight.
