something to be proud of. Just like the founding fathers and war vets.

Here's why they are proud:

When the police attacked the civil rights activists, they ran.
When the police attacked the anti-war demonstrators, the ran.
When the police attacked the gay patrons of The Stonewall Inn, they fought back. The ensuing battle lasted for three days.

This why it's called Gay Pride, & this is why they march: to commemorate this famous battle where they stood their ground & said, "Enough! Is this a free country, or are those just words?"

I stand with them, because I know, that by extension, they fought for me, too.

"Freedom is merely privilege extended, unless enjoyed by one & all."


And no, I don't give a damn what the Bible says about homosexuals. I can think for myself.

^^^ Too bad they keep losing the HIV War. Such loss is most certainly our gain.

@3:26 The Stonewall "Riots" were not riots or a "battle". No one "fought". In 1969, everyone under 30 was either fighting in Vietnam or protesting something. A bunch of fetishists were pissed that their cornhole palace was raided and raised hell for a couple of days. Much Ado About Faggotry should be the title of the story.

We have way too many queers running loose, swishing around, wearing women’s clothing. It was much better when the were discreet and sucked and buttfucked each other secretly.
