“Straight Pride?” Ummm… What?

A “straight pride” march. The “emperor” has no “clothes”

A news article today mentioned that there was some sort of march and rally called “Straight Pride” in Boston. It wasn’t published in The Onion, so it must be true, though some would still say it must be a joke. It’s not a joke, but the only seriousness about a “straight pride” event is the serious misunderstandings on the part of the participants in such an event.
