    National Straight Pride Coalition refused permit to march

    A city council meeting in Modesto, California this week turned heated as citizens, business owners and a group calling itself the National Straight Pride Coalition debated the group's plans for a "Straight Pride" event in the city. The city has since denied the permit, citing safety concerns and the fact that event organizer did not get insurance CBS Sacramento reports.

    During the debate Wednesday, Don Grundmann, founder and director of the National Straight Pride Coalition, tried to make a case for holding the event celebrating heterosexuality. Some in the crowd booed as Grundmann tried to defend his group. Then he made a gaffe that suddenly had the audience laughing out loud.

    I'm not proud about being straight; I've never even thought of my orientation, really.

    Why would you want to have Straight Pride march?

    To complement the Gay Pride march?

    It's kind of like the immediate response to the NAACP and such. "Why isn't there a white one?" (there is actually, run by David Duke)...

    But the comment to that that I found most apt is NAACP stands for "National Association for the ADVANCEMENT of Colored People. If you are white, you are at the front of the line politically, economically, so-on-and-so-forth. How can you ADVANCE beyond the front of the line?

    I thought that was an interesting input.

    The LGBTQ+ community is missing a great opportunity here. Instead of giving publicity and adding to the existing tension, they could just say, "That's great! We'll Celebrate with you! All the colors of the rainbow should be celebrated!" Plenty of straight people participate in pride events.

    Or, they could say, "join our march... it's pride for everyone".

    Force what in the open? Straight people have been out of the closet since, well before closets anyway.

    They were denied for lack of insurance.

    That seems reasonable. Maybe they will get the event sponsors to get insurance and that'll be it.

    A full 10% of all whites live in poverty. The rate is higher among blacks and Hispanics, but to claim "if you are white, you are at the front of the line ... economically" is just ignorant.
