Hey, I went to Gay? Pride 2014. And annual Man Francisco celebration of gay stuff. Well, not so much anymore, because it was infested by armies of obnoxious empty-headed glitter-covered rainbow-bright party girls. Straight college girls. And bros! I actually saw a ton of bros, bro-ing it up. I'm pretty sure 80% of these kids could give a fuck about gay rights or the gay movement, they just hear party, and come running. I guess this is the sad price that must be paid for mainstream acceptance.
Still, it's not like they don't have a zillion of their own events to go to. You think maybe one or two would be like, "Oh, hay, this is a gay thing for gays to celebrate, maybe we should sit this one out and let them have their day." But no, they don't, they put on their terrible party gear, swagger up, and come in droves. And I see less of the old queens, fabulous costumes and crazy-looking naked guys.
Like this guy. This guy is why I go to Gay Pride!
And this lady!
I'm here for this!
I sure as fuck didn't come for this.
Of course, I don't know these girls. Mabye they're all lesbos, and that would be fine. But the 1 zillion other college idiots I saw were not. They were just there to party. Don't matter what the event, could be Hitler's Birthday, and if the party was big enough, they'd be there with funny mustaches on. If they must come, they could at least wear something slightly interesting. Like this.
And I'm not against straights! I don't care if you're straight, I just think you should let people who want to celebrate their thing do it. For instance, being a dorky white guy, I wouldn't go to giant black biker meet up. Well, I did once by accident, and they pretty much told me where to go, and I did. It wasn't my thing. Just like Gay Pride isn't straight college party girl and dumb party bros thing. They have Bay to Breakers, a million music fests, How Weird Fair, and other stuff to go to. Is it too much to ask that they give the gays their day and stay away?
Mabye I'm getting old...getting grumpy. Do I look grumpy? Or maybe I'm right...
Anyway, each year I go less and I would imagine next year, I'll trim even more off. It's too bad, though. It used to be a fun party, now it's just a "party." Speaking of partying, these guys next to me at the Pink Party were an partying. I saw some stuff that'll stay with me for a long, long, long time.
Anyway, I'm sure next year will be worse.
