Pride weekend

Sun, Aug 25, 2019 7:56 PM

I have several friends  including a family member that gets all hyped up over a Pride Festival They dress the part really well very flamboyant. I have never been comfortable when they do but it brings a good laugh and they are really good at dressing up. I give them credit. But I went to one for the first time with them. They said it would be fun and I enjoy people watching but felt really awkward when a company was offering lube products and other suggested pleasurables for the anal area  to them..There slogan Eat  Sleep Lube and Repeat  or something like that.  I started looking at my friends and family member  differently. I never really thought about what they do behind closed doors before . Now I feel a little awkward around them. Any thoughts .

    I would continue not thinking about what they do behind closed doors. Also, don't go to a gay pride festival if you're already uncomfortable with your gay friends/family.

    You mean to tell me gay people have sex???!? 😱

    Step 1: Understand that romantic partners tend to have sex.
    Step 2: In light of this understanding, try not to dwell on other romantic partners having sex.
    Step 3: Avoid public celebrations of romantic partners having sex.

    That may not be easy fresh from attending, so if you have to, give yourself time to be weirded out.  Just let that be something you have to live with for the time being, knowing that it will eventually subside.

    Y'all, it's my boss lol. He saw a picture of me at Akron Pride and then made this thread. So yes, he's trolling, but not exactly in the way you'd think.

    These groups that feel the need to virtue signal everyone with the worst stereotypes of the groups are the worst

    He did not go to Pride. He did see a photo of me holding a fan that had that slogan on it (handed out by a local store). He is pretending that he went and saw their ads instead of just saying he was looking at my social media and saw my picture. That said, he is uncomfortable with gay people, so that part is legitimately not him trolling. 

    I have no idea if he's ever had another profile on here. I know he's been reading my posts for years, so who knows. 🤷🏼‍♀️
