This, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly why I don't like the gay movement, and I don't like the left wing media. Just like the feminists, the gays aren't content with equality, but would rather try and shove their agenda, among other things, down our throats.
They have 2-3 % of the population and yet repeatedly claim that gays constitute 10-12% of the population, all to make themselves appear more mainstream than they really are. On top of this they are no longer content with equality in the eyes of the law, but would rather scream(sic) discrimination whenever some perceived injustice is fostered upon them.Meanwhile, Rob Ford is called a homophobe because he would rather go to his cottage for the long weekend than watch people dance semi-naked thru the streets of Toronto.
If you use the gay pride parade in Toronto as an example, I have to assume that when the gays came out of the closet, they did so nude and began dancing around the house, since that seems to be the prevalent method of debauchery now being used to promote their lifestyle to the masses.
And yet nobody seems to be offended by these antics, but rather seems eager to jump on the bandwagon and partake in a bit of the old "in - out" themselves.
As a matter of fact, NOT supporting the gay movement is looked upon as being an aberration by the left wing media, as witnessed by this latestnews from Mayor Rob Ford's office. If he doesn't wish to go that should be entirely his decision, but it seems that it is now politically correct to not only support the gay movement, but to become an honourary fag yourself.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford appears to be backtracking after saying Wednesday he wouldn't attend the city's massive Pride parade this summer, opting instead for the family's Muskoka cottage.
But following a hailstorm of criticism, the mayor's brother, Coun. Doug Ford, suggested the two may make the parade after all.
"We have 20-odd people going up to our cottage for Canada Day, but if I can make it back I will, and we'll see if I can bring Rob," he said late Wednesday.
Past mayors David Miller, Mel Lastman and Barbara Hall all marched in the parade.
Earlier in the day, Ford said he had a tradition of his own to maintain.
"We've been in Huntsville for the past 30 (years), as long as I remember, since I'm a little boy. We always used to go up north to our cottage and I'm carrying on the tradition that my father had," Ford told reporters at a Toronto Board event.
Coun. Frances Nunziata will stand in for Ford at the raising of the Pride flag at City Hall on June 27, but there are currently no plans to have anyone replace Ford during the parade should he choose not to attend.
Ford's comments drew harsh criticism from fellow councillors.
Kristyn Wong-Tam, who is gay, called the choice "a grave mistake," while Janet Davis described it as an "embarrassment".
Francisco Alvarez, co-chair of Pride Toronto, was more diplomatic about the news.
"I don't want to read too much into it, he's a very busy guy and has a lot of competing demands. We would have been very happy to see him there. If he never comes, well, I guess we can draw conclusions about that.
Twitter users were also quick to react to the news.
The Globe and Mail's Chris Wilson-Smith tweeted: "In his new role, I think one of those traditions outweighs the other," while the user @Roberttodd posted he didn't want Ford to "walk in the Pride Parade anyway."
Others had a more comedic take on the decision. Referencing the recent depiction of Ford in NOW Magazine, @swimstein tweeted: "#RobFord to be a no-show at #Pride. Maybe he thought he had to wear a ."
While Ford's brother has said the two are "big-time social liberals," the mayor's decision is bound to garnerto social conservatives in the United States. Only time will tell what Mayor Ford's approach to Toronto's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community will be.
