Shorten Pride Month

Can Pride Month end a few days early this year? Its insufferable length and signature obnoxiousness need to end. It’s not anti-gay to point out that this has become a no-class time of the year. Can we please celebrate someone or something else? The LGBTQ community is not special. It is losing straight supporters. It is turning people off. Enough. Move on. Move over.

Put another way? We need not be “all in” “all the time” in our support of anyone or anything historically marginalized. I support most things about the LGBTQ community but won’t be a mindless participant-slave in what has become a nuance-free team sport. No movement deserves everyone’s blind full-time support on penalty of being called a bigot. Or a homophobe. A racist. A misogynist. A name. There are shades of grey. LGBTQ World, please get some class. You’re blowing it with most Americans.
