The irony of calling it Pride is that you do things that no one should be proud of.

I agree w/ 8889, that this was a case of sober regret for drunken mistakes. If gays had a monopoly on that, many of us would never have been born.
this may just be me, but i read this as in doing someone you shouldn't be proud of. not in a homophobic way.
Loving same sex == loving a murderer? Sorry, only computes if ur a homophobe.
And yet, we are proud Blanche, we are! And if the heteros don't like what we do, they can stop doing it with us (or to us, as the case may be)!!
So do you. Case in point: judging someone for who they love.
Spyndoc your argument sucks. People rightfully judge when someone loves a murderer or an abusive spouse.
Maybe this text refers to the wine called Pride? Hence the cap. P?
Excellent use of the term 'irony'. It gives me hope that some people can actually use it correctly
Clearing up the controversy - this text was sent to me by a friend. Both of us are proud lesbians, but she was remarking that Pride was just another excuse for us to get drunk and make bad decisions.
Hahaha! ...sadly I know exactly what you mean.
Rmdentin shut up, mods thought it was fine. And who are you to say what people should text? If you think people shouldn't be told what gender to lust after, it's pretty much the same thing, sort of, but not really.
Just because they may not agree with homosexuality doesn't make a person a homophobe. Fear = disagreement, only makes sense if you're arguing for the sake of it.
I also read this as a general statement not relating to sexual preferences. Does the capital "P" make the difference?
I dunno how it is everywhere else, but I was at a Pride festival yesterday and almost everyone was only half dressed, entirely drunk, and it was barely 50 degrees outside. I think the "P" does make a difference but I don't think he/she is slamming on gays, I think they're just saying that at Pride festivals, people do things they'll regret.
Homoez say what?
A horribly ignorant text, this should never have been posted or even sent
this is the originator of the text. i am a lesbian, and was remarking that for me and my friends at least, pride is more about drinking in the street than any actual accomplishment one should feel proud of.
just throwing this out there...FIRST!
