One more important point."The key word here is IRONY: basically, to marginalize "otherwise normal" LGBT people, bigots would claim that they were sexual hedonists to justify their discrimination. The LGBT community responds by being overtly sexual in things like parades as a point of pride: when you claim to be proud of something, it's difficult for another to use it to demean you."So... if someone accuses you of something horrific and evil, you... flaunt horrific and evil things? "How dare they call me a thief! I'm not a thief! I'll prove them wrong by showing what REAL thieves are like... by robbing everyone!" Yeah, that'll show 'em.Sorry, but anyone who responds to, say, "you behave like a slut" by putting on what is arguably (and usually just flat out IS) a full-scale pornographic *production* is not showcasing irony to disprove the other people. They've done the opposite: proving to the world that the other person was correct (at least about those *particular* people if not the group). Whether they would have done such things otherwise is IRRELEVANT just as a man "proving what thievery really is" is still a THIEF. Vile, disgusting, and yes, immoral. And if you can't stand people "judging" you by applying such labels as "immoral" to people behaving like depraved animals, too bad. (Now let's watch someone decry me comparing the stereotypical gay pride parade goers to depraved animals. To them I say, A basic sense of cultural norms, history, and morality you have not.) If these people had any sense and wanted to help their communities, they'd be openly and fiercely combating these "pride parades" instead of participating in them.
