    Its based on the premise that if you are a member of a "disadvantaged class" you obviously need your self esteem lifted, and events that put your uniqueness on display are just the thing to do it. If you are NOT a member of a "disadvantaged class" your self esteem should be just peachy, and therefore have no need of things such as " X day, month or week"

    This has been going on for a long time, with alot of groups. The Irish marching in the Saint Patrick's day parade was originally for Irish unity in the face of hostility from "natives."

    I for one have no issue with days like this, as long as participation is voluntary. I find it kind of lame though, as I feel your self esteem should come from you, not from taking part of some activity. I do find the reasons for the "counter" days such as your proposed "heterosexual day" not really needed, as well as usually formed just as a method of provocation. I would prefer conservatives back away from celebrations in general that try to classify people. Not ban them, but let them die a slow death from becoming meaningless.

    Gays - 3% of the population.

    Everyone else? The rest of the population. Turn on the TV. Every program in prime time is nothing but hetro sex. Except if you watch the science or learning channels. Every minute of every day is hetro sex. Leave the gays alone.

    Right wingers hate the gays because the gays seems smarter, cleaner, more fun to be around, more creative and generally better people. Seriously, who wants to hang around such negative energy. All that hate. Hate the gays. Hate the Muslims. Hate the Hispanics. Hate education. Hate the president. Nothing but hate.

    You know, just because homosexuals want everyone to be accepting of their lifestyle does not mean that everyone will be . . . the homosexual community needs to accept that. Live your life, celebrate, have parade (or not) . . . there will always be people who don't approve. C'est la vie.

    As to the OP . . . . while this is not in America, what's wrong with having a heterosexual pride day? Equality/fairness for thee but not for me? :eusa_hand: Bullshit.

    No argument here . . .but if homosexuals do so then they have no room to complain if heteros do so as well.

    I can declare whatever I want is "needed or not needed", its called an opinion. Now if I try to MAKE you do or not do something, thats when the problem starts.

    I just find the whole pride thing silly, no matter what its about, but that's just me.
