The Best Reactions to the Demand for a #HeterosexualPrideDay

When every day is Pride Day.

LGBT Pride Month hasn’t even come to a close, and, yet, the world’s gender majority is already trying to take it away from the people who so joyously and solemnly celebrated it.

Marked by tragedy at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub and the victorious aftereffects such as the inception of Gays Against Guns, this has been a Pride Month to remember. Sadly, a new trending topic on Twitter wants people to forget how far the gay community has come, simultaneously showing us how far there is left to go.

What started perhaps as a tongue-in-cheek movement has led to both a humorous and upsetting display of ideology and logic on both sides of the argument that is now ensuing on social media, where June 29th is being hailed as Heterosexual Pride Day. But do straight people need their own holiday?
