"On Boston's 'Straight Pride Parade.'"

I just stumbled on this through an odd sequence of following links that looked interesting. It's a tweet written by a guy who evidently has some kind of notoriety as a fitness and self-help dude. I have no idea if he has other worthwhile stuff to say, but I did like this tweet:

What’s interesting is that anything not heterosexual is described by haters as “a lifestyle.” And yet being heterosexual isn’t a lifestyle.

Mankind’s otherism against itself will be it’s downfall. That doesn’t make us unique of course, except unlike perhaps other species we have the ability to overcome it if we choose.

Also interesting is how the term "lifestyle" has taken on a pejorative connotation in this context -- as contrasted with "lifestyles of the rich and famous."

This parade is not as funny as Twitter thinks it is.

The organizers behind Boston’s Straight Pride Parade should concern you
Some of the organizers are close to neo-Nazis and other white supremacists.

Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has been named the grand marshal for Boston’s "Straight Pride" parade....
The organization later named Yiannopoulos, who is openly gay, as its grand marshal for the event.
...
“I know it’s a little ironic to have a gay conservative as our icon," Hugo told the Boston Herald.

Breeder....

According to one listing in Urban Dictionary (FWIW):

"Breeder
Breeder is a slang term (either joking or derogatory) used to describe heterosexuals, primarily by homosexuals."

So what is your point, DeusxMac?
Is that another one of your bigoted, stereotyping posts, now being homophobic?....

It’s going to be a fundamentalist apocalypse. I hope the Muslims outnumber the Christians, and that there is a huge Russian contingent. So many people just demanding to be brutally mocked.

Reminds me of the moronic backlash that the Black Lives Matter” movement sparked in some people. I have relatives who actually marched in a White Lives Matter counter-protest because they felt Black people were excluding them.

I think this may have been one of the bogus issues that the Russians instigated to help Don to get elected.
