I had a conversation with someone who identified herself as feminist once (and as far as I know, she's still active in the movement), where she told me outright the problem she had with LGBTQ movements were the Pride Parades. "Why do they HAVE to parade themselves and their sexuality so openly and in violent shades of nakedness?" I said they asked the same questions when Feminists were chaining themselves to the gates of Parliament and burning their bras in public. She did not change her mind.
I hear that stuff about Pride parades a lot, even from lgbtq people.
I get that it’s not my place to police people’s feelings, but…I don’t get it.
One fucking day a year some people go out and express themselves in public and have fun and no one gets hurt. I don’t get it.
