This Pride Meme Is Pissing Off A Lot Of Gay People

by matt baume July 05, 2016

memeHave you seen the “Straight Pride” hashtag that’s been going around lately? Yeah, it’s dumb; it’s nothing new; it’s not particularly clever; it barely warrants any response at all. But there’s another Pride-related meme making the rounds as well, and it’s infuriating.

The image shows a group of protestors holding signs in what looks like the 80s-ish, with slogans like “Smash gay oppression” and “parents of gays unite in support for our children.” “This is gay pride,” reads the text of the meme, and then juxtaposed with the old protest image is a picture of sexy dancers on a float. “This is bullshit,” the meme continues.

Ugh, no, stop. You are not the Pride Police, meme, and nobody gets to decide what everyone else’s Pride is. It’s something different for everyone. Some of us want a protest, some of us want sex, some of us want politics, some of us want music. Pride is best when it can be a lot of things to a lot of people and welcome as many people as possible.

Also, don’t try to tell us that all of the protestors marching in that parade wouldn’t have fapped to the sight of hunks gyrating on a rainbow float. Just because you have a photo of them being all serious doesn’t mean they weren’t also happy sluts. What do you think they were protesting for, the right to have more protests or the right to be open and public about their sexuality?

The point is, you can be political and you can be sexy. You don’t have to pick one. And if you don’t like the sight of gays being sexual, maybe you’re not as knowledgable about the feeling of pride as you think you are.
