actually no, pink was deemed a girly colour and blue a boy colour, lots of boys then refused to wear pink as it wasnt macho - so its kinda the opposite of gays saying it ... the gay "colour" is the rainbow, as that's the gay pride flag.
First thing: girl = pink, blue = boy, so technically if you're wearing pink you're a girl. I don't hate pink, I have a shirt with a pink lining. But the great pink shirt madness going on lately, started with homosexuals wearing pink shirts, girls like homosexuals, so to please the girls a lot of guys started wearing pink because it's "special" and "different".
And I hate the gay pride flag, why do you have to be proud of being gay?
Oh, I'm a heterosexual, please look at me, I need attention, let's make a flag and start parades!
If gays were that normal as they always pretend they are, they wouldn't need all the attention whoring and they would just act like normal people.
Personally I think it's all down to that they want to show the world that they are not affraight of beeing gay. Ofc I got no idea, but if I were I would feel extremely relifed to be able to confess to the whole world about it, without having shame or try to hide it.
Dude, your so gay that even Elton John is jelaous on ya!
It's very simple, persecution. Even today and particularly amongst young and slightly more noticeably amongst Americans online, calling somebody gay is considered an insult. Persecution of gays is rarer these days but it does still happen. So we take what is thrown at us and turn it into a strength. Call me any name you like and I will consider it a compliment, because i'm proud of who I am, and it is far better to take a compliment than an insult. And that's why we have a flag and marches ... not that I ever go to them personally.
I agree the parades are a bit over the top but i wouldn't go as far as saying i hate the whole parade thing. Imo it's just a celebration of acceptance into the community as normal people not the monsters they where portrayed to be by gay hate etc.
