Hello my tumblr friends. I realize I don’t often make posts that aren’t just the rants of a frustrated Vampire, but today I have an important issue to bring to your attention.
As anyone who knows people in Vancouver, or people who live here themselves will know, this past Sunday was the Pride Parade. Now, everyone I know loves Pride day; beautiful costumes, loving support for everyone no matter who they choose to be with it, lots of cool floats and free condoms, etc.
I was going through my swag today while emptying my purse and I came upon this little plastic package. Now, I distinctly remember receiving this package since it was handed to be by a jolly fellow who handed it out with a condom.
As you can see, it says “Pure Pleasure” on it so I thought hey, free lube maybe? Sweet deal! Instead I opened it to find that folded piece of paper. I was curious so I opened it up.
As you can tell by my unimpressed face, what I found inside was not good. No, what I found inside was a piece of Christian Anti-Gay propoganda. To say that I was stunned is an understatement.
All I can say is that I’m shocked and appalled. The person who handed me this was IN THE PARADE. Like, they actually joined the parade and pretended to be allies and instead they’re handing this shit out. I just can’t believe they’d have the gall. I want to email Mr Bill Whatcott and tell him just how much of an asshole I think he is. Like what the actual fuck.
I don’t know how many people will actually see this but I just needed to get it out there. I’m not gay but I have gay friends who I love dearly and would support through anything, and to see this handed out in what is supposed to be an event about accepting and loving who you are, it just.. it really makes me angry and sad.
