My friend Josh is having an interesting discussion over at his blog about straight pride. He basically proposed a straight pride symbol (the thing over there on the right) and it’s sparked a conversation about sexuality, tolerance and movements. As of this morning, he has 41 comments on the entry, which is a new record among our little circle of college friends with blogs. But the most interesting part is that very few of our college friends have commented. It’s mostly total strangers (well, Josh may know some of them, but I only know one other commenter).
I don’t like the idea of a straight pride bumper sticker, but it’s been an interesting discussion. It started out as a critique of his design (which I’m not a big fan of either) and eventually got around to why such a sticker should or shouldn’t exist.
I liked a comment Josh made in summary: “You can love what you are without malice towards what you aren’t.” I like that idea, though sadly I don’t think that’s the case on every end of the political, religious, or whatever argument you’re having spectrum. And most of the time we don’t even realize the malice in our tone.
Anyway, I just wanted to point out the interesting conversation and see if anybody wanted to jump in. Josh is probably overwhelmed, but how cool is having 41 comments?
