    Irony of this is the parade will be infiltrated by open gays in the future who will make it a point to fag it up.

    Homosexuals are fucking narcissists. It's not always about you, assholes. Wanna march? Then march. Just leave your sexuality out of it--like everyone else. Shame on Guinness and the other breweries for caving to the gay gestapo.

    :facepalm: Over the past 100 years, have we always been this active? No. We weren't.

    Why?

    Well, up until the late '60s/early '70s, we were classified as mentally ill. We were arrested, locked up and sometimes, involuntarily committed to psychiatric hospitals.

    We've had ECT done to us, chemical castration (Alan Turing) and any number of horrific, Frankenstein-esque torture done, all in the name to "fix" us.

    It's only in the past decade or two that we've finally been able to assert ourselves. You're living during the peak of this struggle.

    It'll pass in a decade or two, but so long as we are discriminated against, in any form, or we can lose our job or housing because of our status, we're going to speak up, act out and throw a fucking fit until our civil liberties are acknowledged.

    We're here, we're queer, try not to freak out while we attain equality. :coffee:

    Some people don't understand the way the world works - its about the $$$ and nothing else. Guinness and Sam Adams (and the rest) don't give two shits bout gay rights, but they do want to make as much green as possible. Its just like with that hillbilly from Duck Dynasty or Paula Deen - you see the companies "caving" or (depending which side of the fence you are on) "taking a stand" but all they give a shit about it the cash. That's what they are there for. How many GLBTG are gonna say "you know what, Ill drink Guinness tonight" because of their "stand". Quite a fucking lot. Smart business move, nothing else.

    Exactly. Why would you purposely alienate a segment of the population and risk financial backlash.

    It's the dumbest decision any company could make. And those companies employ gay people and would open themselves up to discrimination lawsuits.

    If your company actively supports an organization that participates in discrimination, what does that say to their employees?

    It is incredible how much things have shifted for the gays. Not that long ago open hostility towards gays was pretty acceptable. That is rapidly changing.
