those christians who stand on the sidewalks at pride with little signs that say “i used to be a homophobe! i’m not anymore! i’m sorry!” like? get the fuck out? this event isn’t an opportunity for you to publicly perform guilt, fuck off.

lmfao bonus points if some…

Saying “I’m sorry I was an asshole” is not the same as asking for a cookie. If it was a sign that explicitly asked for praise (“hug me, I’m an ally now!”) then yeah, tell those people to tone it down, it’s not about them. But if someone is trying to make an apology, you don’t tell them to GTFO.

Regarding the showing vs telling, I would hope that ex-homophobes would demonstrate their commitment to equality on a personal level during their daily lives. But pride parades are tumultuous, and often the only way to get a message across is with big letters on a sign.

Do you have the same problem with PFLAG? Because they have actual floats in parades. And we cheer for them. Are we cheering for them because they didn’t beat their kids when they came out? No. We are cheering for them because they support us.

Aw, did you run out of petty things to say? Well that’s a very nice gif. A for effort.

i actually don’t believe there’s anything petty about objecting to the presence of oppressive religious proselytizers in spaces created to protect the very groups they have most oppressed so surely you can understand why your all caps rant about why Straight Christian Allies Are Essential didn’t deserve anything more than a clyde donovan gif

It’s called a pride parade, not a protect parade.

lmfao bonus points if some of the signs say “jesus loves you!” like please could you be more transparent

I don’t know who you are, and you will probably never see this, but SHUT THE FUCK UP.

Stop encouraging hate in an issue that already has way too much of it. As a gay man, I have spent countless hours doing EVERYTHING IN MY POWER to convince homophobes that they are wrong about us, that we aren’t so different, that they don’t have anything to fear, and that (generally) we are pretty cool people once you get to know us. SO DON’T MAKE THEM HATE US AGAIN.

When I see those people that have come to see the error in their ways, my heart SWELLS WITH PRIDE. Not only am I proud to be queer, I’m proud of (most of) the queer community, and HOW FUCKING FAR we’ve come in our fight for equality and recognition. What better way to celebrate queer pride than with concrete examples of how our efforts have made the world a better and more tolerant place?

So don’t you DARE attack and shame those people.

THEY ARE OUR ALLIES.
