World Pride Bothers Me

Postby Ciri » Mon Jul 29, 2013 5:47 am

Well not the concept, the actual timing. It's not every year, it's sporadic. I don't know why this fills me with rage on this level but it does. I personally blame THE ORGANIZERS for this travesty. Because they clearly have control over every LBGT group and are responsible for the entire thing. Please rectumfy this immediately.

I've never seen the point of waving a comedic flag in old mans piss colours at a gay parade whilst at the same time trying to convince everyone outside of pride that asexuality is not a gay thing

It's like an American president being honest...it just doesn't make sense

The point of pride as some may try and hijack it for asexual purposes is that it alledgedly shows tolerances for those not considered the norm.

But to align with it is a bit like helss angels saying they are not a drugs and prostitution funded organisation who then goes to a whore house selling drugs....i.e. when you have your visible finger only in one pie that is all people will see. In the same way some stress Asexuality is not a gay thing whilst attending pride which is predominantly gay

The thing is..we are trying to inform the non informed of what asexuality is and not those in the bubble of the informed and to those first impressions count.

By all means wave your piss stained flag and feel good on that day about your asexuality but do not think it is a positive to the uninformed if anything pride does more harm to what an asexual definition is more than aven does and it's wishy washy narnia discussions.

It is as simple as it can be..preaching to the converted is not the hard task, preaching to the uninformed and in a correct manner will help us...this is where I feel Pride DOES NOT help.

Ooh a thread here on WorldPride! How could I miss this?

And yeah, the timing of WP is and remains a mystery. I like to think I'm good at spotting patterns in sequences of integers but ... 2000, 2006, 2012, 2014, 2017.... hmm I'm pretty well stumped I'm afraid.
