June 10 was announced as Gay Pride Day in Yellowknife -- but their overly tolerant mayor has also declared June 9 to be Heterosexual Day.
"We thought every day was heterosexual day," said Don Babey of OutNorth, a group that represents Yellowknife gays and lesbians and that made the initial request for Gay Pride Day."That would be the slightly less racist thing to do, yes. But concentrating on irrelevant racial distinctions between people is still racist, however "inclusive" you are in your bigotry. On the other hand, your neurotic need to bother strangers with unwanted details of your sex life only presents a psychological puzzle for the rest of us to justly mock.
"Will the days and weeks marking physical ailments, such as heart disease and strokes, be paired with an equal number of days that will celebrate good health?"So, alternative racial and lifestyle choices are akin to suffering from a disease? Good thing Cryin' Babey didn't make that homophobic, racist analogy within earshot of Joyce Burpee, 'cause he'd be up on Human Rights charges in no time.
