#PrideMonth isn't about being proud of our sexuality or gender. It's about being proud of surviving & continuing to fight against the oppression we've faced our entire lives -- oppression we continue to face every day.
Meanwhile, #StraightPride is a deliberate attempt to change the narrative, to discount all our hard work, all our fighting and sacrifice, & reframe it into the "pride in our sexuality/gender" shit.
#Pride will never be for the ruling class. It will always be for the oppressed.
Oh, and for the record, I stand by my wording here. "Straight Pride" *is* deliberate.
We've explained it thousands of times over that it's about survival in the face of oppression. The straights are *choosing* to ignore us and make it about sexuality/gender instead.
Willful ignorance is a choice and the straights have no excuse.
@KitsuneAlicia “straight pride” is such a “great job at missing the entire point” lol
I'm glad I could help. Keep fighting. ✊
