Yes (and why?)
No (and why?)
There isn't anything proud about being straight (straight person) straight people have never had to keep their sexuality secret out of fear of persecution or the stigma. I am in no way religious, but even in the "Holy books" Homosexuality is seen a sin and should be punished by death so Homosexuality has been a target of hate for thousands of years. We haven't had to fight for rights to marriage, we haven't been discriminated because of our sexuality. We haven't been targeted by mobs for being straight it makes no sense. Gay people are still being hung by law in my many countries today tell where that happens to straight people because of their sexuality?
Straights have NEVER faced any sort of discrimination. It's that simple. Therefore, there's no reason to take pride in it, other than the fact that it's who you are.
I just don't see the point. You're gay. Cool. You're straight. Cool. You are proud of your achievements and accomplishments. Having said that though coming out is a difficult thing for many people and I in no way mean to undermine that I suppose I just wished it weren't a thing anyone cared about, as simple as liking pizza or not liking pizza. I think I just changed my own mind. Being gay is now socially acceptable and celebrating it and how far we have come is a lovely thing. What is special about being straight? What hardship have you suffered due to your sexuality? Sorry if I confused you I confused myself :)
What’s to be proud of, whoop look at me I’m straight like 95% of the world, so exciting.
Having pride in yourself isn’t limited to only those who are/have been oppressed or are a minority group. Everyone literally exists because of straight persons procreating. Is that not a source of pride?
It's not wrong to be proud to be straight for the same reason it is wrong to be proud to be homosexual. Straight is good and homosexual is an evil.
It's odd in either case. It would be like me taking pride in the fact that I have two arms and someone else taking pride in the fact that he has only one arm. Neither really make sense, but they aren't "wrong", whatever that means in this context.
What Heterodox said fits my opinion about this perfectly.
As what Heterodox said, I would find it strange to have pride in your sexuality, as one could compare it to having pride in having having brown eyes. None the less, I don't see how it's really wrong. It is quite hypocritical to imply Gays should be allowed to have pride in their sexuality, but say it's wrong for straight people not to.
I don't think it's wrong to be proud of being straight. Sure straights have not been persecuted because of their sexuality but that does not mean they can't take pride in their sexuality as gays do. As far as the straight pride parade, I don't think there's any need for it, but I believe in freedom of speech so if people want to participate in it, let them have it.
This is a big.....WHO CARES? Americans are so fixated on sex, I really think the whole nation is dysfunctional in some way or another. It is private. Between two ADULTS, who by the way get pregnant can afford the child as a result of that fateful union. Not just say ooopppss and get a check , an apartment, and WIC and Food Stamps and so on and take no responsibility for that child. And all you so called Christian don' have any problem with that..but birth control....awwwwwww hell is coming on a dark horse!
Absolutely not. I am very proud to be straight.
Heterosexuality is the only natural sex orientation, so the answer is no.
Who the fuck even cares, be proud of yourself it doesn't fucking matter if you're straight or gay.
Homosexuality and heterosexuality are both just lifestyles, so there is no reason why you can't be proud of being straight.
Being proud of your sexuality is awesome, but heterosexual people don't need a pride day. They haven't been oppressed or denied of their basic human rights. As of the pride parade, the gay pride parades involve other sexualities so I don't see why heterosexual people need a whole other parade when they can just participate in the gay parades.
It's not wrong. If certain communities are able to have gay pride parades and such, I feel that people who are straight should be able to act so in an appropriate manner and be proud of it. If it were up to me, sexual orientation wouldn't matter. If you were gay, straight, bi, or whatever else there is, it doesn't matter. Who cares anyway?
Ive seen people saying "straights have never had to hide their sexuality" which is true, but with the growing acceptance of gays, its seems to me that now if youre straight, and proud of it, people call you homophobic, or other names. I'm straight, perfectly proud of it, but i also fully, 100% support gay rights. Being proud of being straight doesnt mean youre putting down other people who arent. Also, you should be able to be proud of whatever you want. Im proud that i just ate a bowl of soup without hurting my teeth too much. (i just got my braces tightened) And no one can tell me that i cant be proud of it.
