Lifestyle choice?

Changing your hair color is a 'lifestyle' choice.


Being ignorant is a 'lifestyle' choice.


Clothes are a 'lifestyle' choice.


Who you fall in love with is not a lifestyle, nor is it a choice. ACTING on that love is a choice, yes, but why should gay people have to deny themselves acting on that love when other people can do so all the time?

I guess the choice part is the need to flaunt all this in the streets.....Straight people, for the most part don't need to do this, and most likely would not be allowed to do this. BTW, I don't know about other pride parades, but the Toronto one is highly taxpayer funded, unlike most other parades like the Santa Claus parade, which gets it's own funding from corporations etc. If they want to have their silly parade, fund it themselves. Another case of special interests getting our dollars....Sick of it.
Now, you are likely going to come back saying how much money comes into the city from this....Well, the corporations/businesses that should be funding this are the ones reaping in this money, not the average taxpayer. Let them pay the costs.....since it is a winner fro them.

You loved Mulroney that much, eh?

I recall two Prime Ministers from BC. One lasted an hour and a half and the other made it through 65 minutes.

I guess that the mysterious Eastern Cabal did that to you

Except it happens, every day, with Straight people. Have you walked outside and seen a man/woman couple walking down the street holding hands? That's straight pride. Seen them kissing, hugging, snuggling? Straight pride. And before you bring up the outrageous costumes some gay people can wear, outrageous isn't a sex only thing. Lots of heterosexual people wear outlandish clothing, or none, too. When a gay couple can't walk down the street and hold hands, or even kiss, in public, because they're afraid to be beat up just BECAUSE they're gay (or trans or whatever), THEN the need for Pride events comes up.

I totally agree. That said, if they want to ask corporations to fund floats and such, and they do, then that's on the corporations.

I'm not an economist so I couldn't argue how the money the people who go to the parades is spent in the community vs the normal income and all that stuff. But I would think more people out and participating in anything local usually leads to them spending money in some fashion, which in turn goes back to the tax base. But as I said, I'm not an economist person.

Good thing. The Episcopalians won't burn him to get the demon to leave.

Yes..Pete is gay.....talks about it openly........as he does about hi marriage.

What is the big deal??

He makes more sense than most of them.... is smart, eloquent, and a sound grounding in mental health........a VITAL FACTOR NOW........... with a pretty good knowledge base. He is young , ploable, and would grow into the job.

The old school demoncrats won't, that's for sure. They are just as bad as Repukians; pigs at the trough.

A few people I know favor Mayor Pete because of his qualifications and experiences. Whether he'll get the top job or not, I don't know.


I wouldn't mind seeing him VP, or Sec. of State, as I've mentioned before. Considering what the Sec. of State does, he'd be great for that position really, IMO.

excellent point Yes....he is capable and could probably handle the positions you mention very well.

He has the qualifications, the personality, and seems personable, approachable ....people oriented. IE....not fixated on status. money and power.

So if Pete wins what do they do for a First Lady (or would it be a First Man)? F**K
