    Are you proud to be male too? What other non controversial, well accepted attributes that have never made you the target of an attack are you proud of?

    • Being a white conservative trump-supporting male makes you one of the most targeted demographics in America

      No it doesn’t. Open up your eyes. White male conservatives are running this country right now and have been for years. They are the ones in power

      Being male is non controversial?
      Being male means you’re less preferable for hire in many tech companies?!
      People who say women are the future don’t face an iota of criticism but switch genders and you’re a sexist!

      are you under a rock or something?

    So brave to come out as straight. We all assumed you were gay.

      In the current environment, calling yourself as an heterosexual Asian/White male takes the most courage. Thanks, I know it was brave of me to post it here and also on my Linkedin profile.

    Good for you. You should be proud in whatever skin you’re in. And I’m sure you meant this post as a harmless jest but just want to ask you a few questions so you understand what Pride month is and why it’s important to the LGBTQ+ community. When was the last time you were denied service, housing, or fired from a job for being heterosexual like you can be in ~25 states today? Told you were invalid for being straight/heterosexual? Saw that someone was beaten or killed for being heterosexual? If you’re tired of the LGBTQ+ community getting this month of recognition, remember it started with people in their community being threatened, beaten, and even killed for who they love and who they are. And each June is a way to put a spotlight on the progress we still need to make around the world for equality. Even though there is a lot of corporate capitalization and rainbow washing going on nowadays, there are many reasons the month still needs to exist. Visibility is important so that people can know they are valid and loved and welcomed to be who they are and love who they want somewhere, hopefully everywhere one day.

      LGBT discrimination is trivial compared to what people face on the basis of poverty. If you’re a well to do LGBT, you could live perfectly well in the Bay Area and even in most parts of the world without openly proclaiming your orientation.

      It is more important that we make progress on those who face some real discrimination like people born in poverty.

      Really, there is virtually no LGBT discrimination in the Bay Area etc, and even in places where is just shutting up about orientation helps.

    Looking at all the comments here, we can see how much discrimination LGBTs must face on a daily basis.
