i dont really think its that much of a deal since the majority of people in this world are straight but nonetheless its something positive and cheerful i don't mind participating in it
Please "straight" is largely a western invention whereof large parts of the world have never heard.

It is obvious that "obscenity" is not a term capable of exact legal definition; in the practice of the courts, it means "anything that shocks the magistrate".

No you've just deluded yourself you're "straight" because you cannot exist outside of arbitrary boxes and social identities your culture has made up for you that don't exist.

Thanks for the three short paragraphs of absolutely irrelevant paranoid woke shit that didn't answer my core question here I guess.
No I answered it exactly; you claim that "straight" has been celebrated by society for 'thousands of years' I claim that 'straight' didn't exist before 1886 when it was invented by psychiatrics so how can it have been celebrated?

Celebrated as in taken as the sociocultural norm, and yes, building an entire set of ideological constructs around them that are pretty much taken as dogmatic and indisputable.

"I claim that straight didn't exist before 1886" yeah and homosexual intercourse or relationships haven't been a punishable crime for literal thousands of years in Western societies, and they aren't right now in a number of places around the world.

I don't know who are you trying to fool or impress with your Very Woke Opinions on psychiatrists, like psychiatrists ever invented that people who are attracted to their same gender exist. It only shows your childish disrespect towards a group of professionals/academics.

Given the realities of the modern Western world, I could argue about discrimination of straight for their sexuality, lol. But the straight parade theme itself is already fat enough not to make it even hotter.


Do tell me when straight people are executed/incarcarated/beaten up/raped because they wanted to have relationships. Surely you do not equate a college student speaking to you in a rude manner with what LGBT people have to go through in many parts of the world.


Is physical violence the only existing form of discrimination? Or do you intentionally raise the bar so high that you can cut off any of my arguments? In this case, this is a very good example of the “pushing the gate” tactic.

How does that mean that "straight" existed? Before psychiatrists came up with this weird label of "homosexual" the widespread belief was that every human being was "bisexual". That it was a crime to act on homoerotic urges doesn't change that the widespread belief was that it was natural for every human being to feel them; one was just supposed to not act on them.

I don't know who are you trying to fool or impress with your Very Woke Opinions on psychiatrists, like psychiatrists ever invented that people who are attracted to their same gender exist. It only shows your childish disrespect towards a group of professionals/academics.
I never said that; I said they invented "straight" and all the other sexuality labels.

Before psychiatrists tried to medicalize morality as they so often do every man was "bisexual" in the public eye.

Ah so that's why there's a rule against discussing sexual oriention. (this is not directed towards anyone in particular btw).
All I have to say is that you should take pride in achievements and merits and not something like race or in this case sexual orientation. Also I would like that they didn't use public money for parades or anything related to that. There are more important stuff that matter such as education, health and security. NK out.

No, but there is a thing called difference in degree which in this case is so great I can't see your "But straight people get discriminated too!" as anything but refusal to adress the real problems.

There is nothing morally wrong with a straight pride parade, but its just as pointless as the gay pride parades now. LGBT parades might have had meaning before wide spread acceptance, but nowadays even mega corporations are backing the culture and its not daring or revolutionary to show support for the cause. People march in these things to take selfies and get positive comments like "OMG, so brave" to feel good about themselves. I don't know who would actually take time off work to march in any kind of sexual-orientation parade, it all seems so trivial.

The only parade I would march in would be a Lolicon pride parade since lolicons are still misunderstood and oppressed.

They are obviously free to spend their own money to throw a party however they wish and I am free to criticize their pride in non-achievements all the same.

religions like islam and christianity existed way before 1886 anyway and we know that religion is the original pro discrimination group with sexism against women and LGBT and this same holy books preaches gender roles/responsibility/hierarchy too like the husband/male should be the head and the final decision maker of the family

I don't know how I'm deluding myself. I like women, girls, females. I have never had an attraction to a man. There is a difference between admiration and love. I can admire a guy's abs and muscles, but there is a difference between me using that admiration in order to further my interest in having a romantic relationship and me just having respect and admiring it.
And if you were born in 1600's Japan you would be on that military paederasty train just like all the other Japanese males of the time.

Every single Greek citizen in the year zero was "bisexual" but sure; you'd be the only one if you were born back there to be "heterosexual".

Or maybe just maybe you've let yourself be brainwashed by society and suppressed yourself into a prison. How else can such things as "cultures" exist if human beings do not systemically allow themselves to be brainwashed?


I guess I am brainwashed then. Identifying as "straight" is an easier way of saying that I only prefer the opposite sex when it comes to romantic relationships. I don't really care what you identify as, and you can say that everyone is bisexual in one way or another.

You seem to think that cultures are bad. Cultures are what bring humans together, the good and the bad. You can even make a point that you rejecting societies' culture is a culture in and of itself, so in that case are you not brainwashing yourself as well?

Straight pride happens everyday when a couple gets married, when a bf and gf kiss in public, I do not feel that it is necessary. Its good to be proud of your sexuality, but the obvious intent of having a parade has some reference to the Gay pride one.

What do Abrahamic religions have to do with "sexual orientations"?

None of these religions even speak of sexual orientations and their holy books are clearly written from the perspective that at its core all men are 'bisexual".

None of these religions and their holy books seem to think or imply that "heterosexual" and "homosexual" persons exist.

Yeah no. People can burn their own money for all I care or anything like that. But when it comes to public money, which is ours that's where I draw the line. Here in my country pride parades are the same as carnivals. Both garbage with people having sex at broad daylight, spreading diseases and whatnot. It's their life and they can do whatever they want as long as it is in private I don't care. But that's not the case. And I agree with the 'free to criticize' part tho.

Yeah so? How does that imply that the bible seems to think that heterosexual and homosexual humans exist?

At no point does the bible at any point say that supposedly human beings can be divided into "heterosexual", "bisexual" and "homosexual" where "heterosexuals" and "homosexuals" are supposedly incapable of feeling love or lust for a specific sex.

I'm not sure how the Bible condemning homoerotic acts would at all imply that it seems to believe human beings exist that are supposedly incapable of feeling homoeroetic desires. It seems to very much imply that this desire lies at the capacity of any man.

Hmmm, seems like something out of The Onion. *Does cursory internet search*

Oh, well err, I guess it is a thing. But I pride myself in being open-minded so I'll hear what they have to say...

"The City of Boston rejected Super Happy Fun America's application to raise the straight pride flag at city Hall. Unfortunately, the Walsh administration is not yet committed to creating a supportive environment for straights and equality for all.
We will continue to educate the Mayor and the public in anticipation that one day straights will be able to celebrate their lifestyle like everyone else. What better way to educate and foster unity than by having a parade!"

So basically, the purpose is to advocate the "unique problems" straight people face. Yeah...



I mean, its principle organizer, Mark Sahady is involved with a far-right organization called "Resist Marxism". And Milo Yiannopoulos is the parade's "grand mashal". So if anything, it seems way more likely it's an alt-right rally to me. Just wish they were honest and called it "Insecure Dumb-Dumb Parade".

labels are invented and science (which is still new if human history is the basis) likes to invent labels for an already existing phenomenon like sexuality and you mention sexual orientation as well and that is determined by difference in genitals alone if the basis is biological

Yeah and it didn't exist before 1886. If one go back in time to 1870 and ask random bystanders on the street if they ever felt homoeroetic desire they will all answers "Of course I have, everyone has... but to act on it is wrong!" not "Nooo; I'm heterosexual just like 95% of the population; I never ever ever ever feel that at all."

Supposedly about 90-95% of human beings is "heterosexual" now depending on how one polls yet there is documented evidence of entire civilizations before this "sexual orientation" crap came up where every single individual was considered what they now call "bisexual"; it was just a fact of life that human beings were attracted to both sexes the same way it's a fact of life that human beings are attracted to both blue and brown eyes.

Come oooon! this is men putting themselves into a box and forcing themselves into a "sexual orientation" label because they need their tribes.

"Tribes"? There are some people, who are too much into the LGBT community and won't interact with straight people anymore and they are pretty annoying, tbh. But you have to see that they are like that, because they had been hurt and discriminate against.
There are just a bunch of the whole LGBT folks. If people never had made a difference between straight, bi and homosexual people, there wouldn't be a need for pride events etc

And I literally tried to be with a guy, but I couldn't. Don't see how this could be made up, if my experience and feelings for men told me otherwise.

ok i agree that bisexuality is more common since i myself score 1 in the kinsey scale so i think myself as bisexual too but you exaggerate when you imply that 90-95% of human beings are bisexual, extraordinary claims requires extraordinary evidences since even before 1886 im sure bisexuality is not the norm by the fact of having a family base on husband and wife relationship during those old times

The way you phrased it.

For one, you added an assumption in there that some people might be out to "be taking actions against it". Which is not self-evident. Almost irrational, really.
Since many people hold a negative view of something, but they never bother actively taking actions against it.

Not to say that there aren't people that would. But it still raises the question why you added that piece of information there. As if you had an example or an image of it in your head.

That's exactly how culture brainwashes you; surely you noticed that there are many things which are almost universally considered disgusting in one culture but not in other cultures? These things happen because human beings have not their own opinions and are slaves to their culture.

Every single male that went into the Spartan or Japanese military at various times was expected to have sexual relationship with other males and they enjoyed it. So you mean to say they just randomly by chance happened to select them?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexuality_in_the_militaries_of_ancient_Greece

No, all Roman, Greek, Japanese, Indian, and Chinese citizens at various times were just "bisexual"; that was the culture; everyone was "bisexual".

In a less joking manner, I can see this being beneficial if such a parade were to occur in a homophobic country (ie. Iran) where LGBT people can celebrate sexual orientation without the censorship.
Sure, they won't be able to celebrate the fact that they're gay, but they can still celebrate during pride month without horrific consequence. If the municipality questions them, they can say they're just happy to be straight and not other sexuality. Plus, it can possibly raise awareness of people saying "wait, there a non-straight possibility?"

I never said that; I said they invented "straight" and all the other sexuality labels.

Before psychiatrists tried to medicalize morality as they so often do every man was "bisexual" in the public eye.

As deg told you, you just described science. Naming existing phenomena and labelling them. You going woke and paranoid and calling out psychiatrists for observing and labelling observable phenomena is your issue.

Also I don't consider "you can be attracted to people from your same sex but only if we never ever notice in any way or form", which is what you seem to be getting at here, a good argument in trying to convince me that there wasn't structural discrimination against homosexuality. This level of mental gymnastics is amusing.

How does that mean that "straight" existed? Before psychiatrists came up with this weird label of "homosexual" the widespread belief was that every human being was "bisexual". That it was a crime to act on homoerotic urges doesn't change that the widespread belief was that it was natural for every human being to feel them; one was just supposed to not act on them.

I never said that; I said they invented "straight" and all the other sexuality labels.

Before psychiatrists tried to medicalize morality as they so often do every man was "bisexual" in the public eye.

As deg told you, you just described science. Naming existing phenomena and labelling them. You going woke and paranoid and calling out psychiatrists for observing and labelling observable phenomena is your issue.
You keeps saying it's "existent" wheres historical evidence is pretty clear about that it wasn't existent before that point.

Before "sexual orientations" were invented by psychiatrists all human beings were "bisexual".

Also I don't consider "you can be attracted to people from your same sex but only if we never ever notice in any way or form", which is what you seem to be getting at here, a good argument in trying to convince me that there wasn't structural discrimination against homosexuality.

I never said there wasn't structural decriminalisation; where did I talk about that?

All I said is that all human beings were generally accepted to be bisexual before psychiatrists decided to medicalize sexual morality in this regard.

It is obvious that "obscenity" is not a term capable of exact legal definition; in the practice of the courts, it means "anything that shocks the magistrate".

@ZaBici You are a cutie.

And so is the character limit.

@Sphinxter If you are telling me that labels just began to exist when psychiatrists made them up then "generally accepted to be bisexuals" is incorrect because there was not such notion of bisexuality anyway. On the other hand, this works in a level of abstract theory that is not even feasible if any sort of display of romantic or sexual attraction towards the same sex was pursued and condemned.

I went to pride this weekend and we had straight friends with us, like many others do, and as I can tell, they had lots of fun too.
Milo is just something like the personification of a parody.

so im sure non straight people would have loads of fun at a straight parade as well, continuing that line of logic

MiraniaTLS said:
Straight pride happens everyday when a couple gets married, when a bf and gf kiss in public, I do not feel that it is necessary. Its good to be proud of your sexuality, but the obvious intent of having a parade has some reference to the Gay pride one.

once again, why does this mean that it's BAD to have the parade? Also the idea that this is connected to a gay pride in any way is only true in the sence that both parades promote equality and the ability for people of all sexualities to express their views.

like i said OP's a bridge dweller who wasn't wiped out with the rest of the trolls who used to brigade the forums at the beginning of the year

baseless ad hominem which adds nothing to the discussion. I apprecieate your input though. Please try to be more inclusive next time :)

In a less joking manner, I can see this being beneficial if such a parade were to occur in a homophobic country (ie. Iran) where LGBT people can celebrate sexual orientation without the censorship.
Sure, they won't be able to celebrate the fact that they're gay, but they can still celebrate during pride month without horrific consequence. If the municipality questions them, they can say they're just happy to be straight and not other sexuality. Plus, it can possibly raise awareness of people saying "wait, there a non-straight possibility?"

an interesting view I hadn't considered before.

Why do you ask?


The way you phrased it.

For one, you added an assumption in there that some people might be out to "be taking actions against it". Which is not self-evident. Almost irrational, really.
Since many people hold a negative view of something, but they never bother actively taking actions against it.

Not to say that there aren't people that would. But it still raises the question why you added that piece of information there. As if you had an example or an image of it in your head.


Dude I really only put it in there because it's the opposite of people supporting it and i assumed reactions to it would go both ways. You're reading way too much into it.

It's only the beginning of the summer and I'm already sick of all the tourists in Boston/Cambridge. Man, do I hate summer tourism. This parade would probably attract even more tourists, therefore this parade is bad.

On a more serious note, I think a straight pride parade is fine. A bit of a dumb publicity stunt, but whatever.

There wasn't; like I said a page prior "when all men are bisexual then no man is"

On the other hand, this works in a level of abstract theory that is not even feasible if any sort of display of romantic or sexual attraction towards the same sex was pursued and condemned.
No, attraction was not condemned; acting upon it was.

It was generally considered that these were desires everyone felt; one was just not supposed to act on it.

And these were only the countries under the Abrahamic veil. In China or Japan it was both felt and acted upon. In 1700s Japan it was the normal state of affair to have one male and one female lover and that did not count as infidelity as long as both were of a different sex.

sort of anecdotal here but oh well, i'll just say the ppl i've seen whine about needing straight pride pretty much tells me all i need to know about the merit of such a thing. lots of entitlement, not so much empathy or critical thinking.

i know milo is an special case whose livelihood is antagonizing ppl, but in general i'll never understand gay ppl who are conservatives. have fun enabling a party full of ppl that hate u, it's almost as smart as being a white supremacist in africa.

So what I said basically. If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is around to hear it... Or a level of abstract theorization that is not feasible because the moment such desire is noticed it becomes a crime and a sin.

And yep, I'm talking about countries under the Abrahamic veil. I may have not emphasized that well enough in our exchange since you rightfully mention cultures that were traditionally more inclusive of other sexualities.

No, again, it was fine to have the desire; just not to act upon it.

And you're still ignoring all the countless cultures where it wasn't criminalized.

If your hypothesis of sexual orientations having always existed were to be true such cultures where every human being was and acted upon being "bisexual "could not have existed and yet they did.

They were not "inclusive" to "other sexualities"; there were no "sexualities"; if there is only one sexuality that is the same as there being no sexualities.

"sexual orientations" are a made up myth of western psychiatrists that men that need to prove their "identity" dive into; in a cultural vacuum all human beings are "bisexual".

It is obvious that "obscenity" is not a term capable of exact legal definition; in the practice of the courts, it means "anything that shocks the magistrate".

No, they are not a "made up myth", they are names and labels of existing phenomena. I thought that was already clear. Just because mammals didn't begin to be categorized as such till the 18th Century doesn't mean that they don't exist as a group. And again, why are you acting like psychiatrists "invented" sexualities when people were judged and condemned for expressing behaviors associated to sexualities thousands of years before.

Also, I don't think there is a contradiction between my hypothesis and the existence of cultures that embrace a wider spectrum of sexual behavior. Your phrase is quite oddly worded because the association doesn't make any sense.

In a cultural vacuum all human beings are bisexual is also again super-abstract because cultural vacuums don't exist. If you want to hypothetize, then go on.

And "it was fine to have the desire but not to act upon it" is basically the tree falling in the forest xD. "As long as it's all in your mind and you never express it in any way or form that we can notice..."
