@earthexile: I'm perfectly aware that majority/non-oppressed groups can have pride in themselves without that pride being hateful, but many people aren't, hence the hesitancy to have white/male pride.Also, you need to consider that racial pride, female pride, gay pride, etc. come out of a history of being repressed. Minority groups were often told that they should be ashamed of who they are, and in spite of that, they still like themselves. That's where that kind of pride comes from; liking themselves for who they are in spite of society telling them they should not. (The same could possibly be said for some Horde players, who may have been pressured to play Alliance instead) White/male pride doesn't have such a base, and for that reason, some people view it as being baseless, even if it isn't.
