Why do you think there should be a day set aside just for gays to exercise, I mean don't you just want to be seen as equal, why all the need for attention. It is as i have said in the past if you make people see you as normal and celebrate your sin the you will feel no conviction.

In corporate America you follow the lead of those above you or you face the consequences. Period.
Have you never held a job before?

He clearly thinks itís OK to alienate customers so much, that an entire gym location closes because the staff quit and the customers left. Crossfit said that wasnít ok at all.

That in no way answered my question try again. And for LeeKohler2 since you won't acknowledge my posts, maybe your little buddy Hollywood will, why the need for a special day to exercise if you just want to be seen as normal like everyone else. It's a normal everyday thing for me I don't get a special heterosexual day.

Guess the guy didn't know, YOU WILL CONFORM!

How stupid is your question?

Is it meant to be humorous?

You seem to be unable to grasp the concept that "pride" is the opposite of "shame" and has nothing to do with "celebration." Though there's nothing WRONG with celebration. It has nothing to do with being normal or not normal - only silly ignorant people believe that accepting a second-class status would be the same thing as being equal as all others.
But, then, I am responding to you, so I guess that fits.
Thanks from Lyzza and leekohler2

Just like the ignorant asshats who don't understand why we need a black history month, since there's no white history month.

Ignorant, pathetically and intentionally ignorant

He might also note that there are several days a year set set side to celebrate his religion. So really, one day a year where we celebrate the fact that we have made great strides in breaking down prejudice and discrimination, should not be too much to ask. Or maybe he would like to give up his holidays?

But that means all the gay Christians would have to give up Christmas and Easter, too!

Braveheart likes to pretend that his brand of bigotry speaks for all Christianity, but, of course, we all know that he's most emphatically being dishonest about that. (you see, he cares very much about gay people - but that commandment about telling the truth? not so much).

That's true, but I'm not one of them. But again, I'm not the one telling people what they can or cannot celebrate.

Oh, I know. I've had to deal with his type face to face before. They're even more horrible in person. It's truly sad that they spend so much of their time shitting on other people.
