College Republicans Plan 'Straight Pride Week'
College Republicans Plan 'Straight Pride Week'

UPDATED: 11:02 AM EST January 28, 2005

EDMOND, Okla. -- A University of Central Oklahoma student group is planning what it calls "Straight Pride Week" on campus.

Members of the College Republicans said despite objections from some, they have every right to celebrate.

"The general gist is that if you are a straight student on campus be proud, be loud, this is your time to shine," said college Republican Kyle Houts.

The group has posted fliers on campus that read, "we're here, we're conservative, we're out."

Which is closest to how you feel about the College Republicans' "Straight Pride Week" celebrations?
Choice Votes Percentage of 541 Votes

Good for them. 293 54%
They are being discriminatory. 29 5%
I don't mind it because it just makes it them look bad. 82 15%
Neither "Gay Pride Week" or "Straight Pride Week" should be observed. 137 25%

126. the challenge to them is:
can you do it without making obscene posters, saying discriminatory things or making vulgar gestures?

The answer will be "no". They can't. They just want something to laugh about when they sit around drinking kegs afterwards.

142. Exactly
Granted, it was a while ago, but from what I remember, every week was straight pride week on campus...

They're just looking for more attention. Like naughty children, they'll take positive or negative attention, so long as you don't ignore them!

So do.

Or would it make blanket statements with absolutely no evidence less ignorant if I found being gay to be flattering?

127. Just my two cents
As a fraternity man myself, I'd have to disagree with the fact that all young men drawn to "frats" have sexual issues. The "assgames" go on about as much as the orgies, and with the hectic schedule of todays undergraduate student, there's just not much time for that.

Large groups of people, especially men, tend to make stupid decisions. That happens wherever you go. But that's not everyone, and that's not all of my brothers.

Just my two cents.

Let's get your hatred on record now.

On edit: How is your statement any more or less ignorant than the notion that gay people are trying to "convert" straight people? Please answer in full detail.

140. Inter-female jealousy is real, but he exaggerates.
Not that all women hate each other, but that while men tend to compete by being loud, aggressive, and annoying, women are more likely to compete by more covert, potentially-backstabbing means. One 'could' say all women hate each other, but only in the same way one 'could' say that all men are gorillas who would kill each other for sportit only looks that way to someone on the outside who really doesn't get it.

222. I agree
Does anyone remember when Geraldine Ferraro was running with Walter Mondale? She got the ugliest remarks from women, mostly along the lines of "Who the hell does she think SHE is?"

Anyone who's been around the block knows that, when pushed, women are the dirtiest fighters you can find, and, alas, I am sad to say that I've watched women too many times actively undermine one of our own.

Lone's right.

3. College Republicans have often attracted the dimmest of students
These are usually the students who refuse to engage in critical discourse of any kind.

They are the ones who will get a piece of paper and never experience a real eduction.

Sad, but true.

Let them have their "Straight Pride" events. They will look like fools.

96. It's a shame
In my much younger days,I ran the UT Republicans. In those days, we were a minority group (in numbers) on campus. We focused on encouraging debate about issues like deficit spending, etc. (of course, this was back in the day where that meant something to republicans). My former party was, at the time, quite tolerant and driven toward a goal of leaving a legacy of responsibility. By the 80's, all had changed. I am now happy to have joined the new party of lifetime responsibility.

5. Perhaps they could shave their
pubic hair and walk around yelling "Straight Power!". The new bread of skinheads. Now if they could only decide upon their own flag.

If this happens I hope someone is there to take pictures. Floats with line dancing, cowboy hats, decorated with Busch Beer signs will no doubt dominate the parade. It will be that days best source of comedy.

6. good for them
I have nothing against Straight Pride Week

what I do have a problem is that these morans don't realize that Straight Pride is celebrated pretty much every day

do you think that a gay couple who dare to kiss like a straight couple in some places without getting the crap beat out of them or even worse?

and we all know that people are usually assumed to be straight

but if the little College Morans at Central Oklahomo want to go ahead and do this, more power to them

No offense to homosexuals intended.

This should be their slogan:

"College Republicans - We're here, we're queer**, we're morons, get used to it"

** - the definition of queer I am using here (from Dictionary.Com):

Of a questionable nature or character; suspicious.
Slang. Fake; counterfeit.

HUGE difference.

UCO is in Edmond, OK. Edmond is where rich, white bigots go when the everyday bigotry of the modern world just isn't bigoted enough.

OSU is in Stillwater, OK. I've actually met some cool people from Stillwater.

36. Conservative ignorance again
the purpose of gay pride events is because of the history which continues to this day of gays being discriminated against and seen as being less worthy as a person because they are gay. it's to make glbt people feel they don't have to be ashamed of who they are.

this is the same type of crap when some whites want to start their own clubs or whatever else in response to the black,latino and other minority ones. the minority ones were started because of discrimination against them so they formed their own.

but these assholes just don't get it. instead they have a need to feel they are victims .

45. They sure do spend alot of time proclaiming their un-gayness. I wonder if
their belief that being gay is a choice rather than biological stems from **them** being biologically gay, which would mean that they really are making the choice to be straight even though they really are gay.

As a percentage of the population the loudest gay bashers aren't a very large segment. They're just loud and the Repugs in power are amplifying them.

54. This is hilarious ...

I met a group of 3 male students from UCO the other day. They were busy making complete asses of themselves while paying a bill. Seems the person taking their payment was informing them of an impending cut-off of service due to non-payment (from what I could get out of it, it was 3 months past-due), and they took offense at this. What seemed to offend them more was that the billing representative seemed rather, well, gay, and I got the impression it irked them to have the the news of their credit rating going into the toilet along with their ability to acquire service being given them by a gay man.

They made a threatening gesture, expelled a long stream of profanity, and told the guy they were going to kick his ass. Not half a second later, this HUGE security guard had one of them by the neck, and ten seconds after that he and his friends were in the parking lot being read the riot act. Shortly after this the police were on hand, and the original offender ended up with a free ride somewhere probably not too nice.

The best part is that after the guard took control, everyone else in the office was either laughing at them or clapping for the security guard.

I'd bet my next paycheck this guy will be at this "event."

57. OOO someone get me the T-shirt!
That's what we did when they had "Straight Pride Day" at the University of Texas. The dykes started wearing their t-shirts and holding hands in public to show solidarity with our straight brothers and sisters... WE SUPPORT THEIR COURAGE. We had no idea it was so hard for them to accept themselves.

Also, my girlfriend is very butch and I am very femme. We almost look like our struggling straight friends! So we wore shirts in solidarity too.

I think, personally, I might start collecting college STRAIGHT PRIDE shirts. It's like mardi gras for the low IQ set.

Hey college Republicans, when you are bashed and beaten and discriminated against because you're straight, when you have preachers drive from all across the country to tell you that you're going to hell for who you are, then go ahead and have your straight pride week. But here's my advice to you, instead of jerking yourself off with these idiotic displays of ignorance, why don't you go and enlist in the military so you can go fight for this war you believe in so much?

Oh, you're not going to? What a surprise. Cowards and hypocrites, every last one of you.

68. What? No "straight" Democrats? Only straight, Conservative and out?
That's so weird.
If they actually have a parade, will they consider floats from the straight, liberal Dems who are "out"?

Actually, my first thought was -- hey, isn't it pretty much "Straight Pride Week" every week? When were they considering a suffering minority?

That is like saying... HEY! We don't have enough Old White Men in the Congress or the history books.

Very strange, but.... nothing is surprising any more.
And yes, what kind of parade would that be?
Don't think you'll see floats like "Safe Sex," "Condoms R Us," or "Abstinance or Bust."

Lots of those fluffy flowers made of kleenex,huh? Kinda reminds me of the "nice" floats in that parade in Animal House.

136. yeah -- since when has "straight" been synonymous with "conservative"?
""The general gist is that if you are a straight student on campus be proud, be loud, this is your time to shine," said college Republican Kyle Houts.

The group has posted fliers on campus that read, "we're here, we're conservative, we're out.""



As a straight person (and college philosophy instructor), I find his logic to be sadly lacking.

79. There are two kinds of "pride" in public demostrations.
There's the kind that says "I'm glad we're here together in the world. Let's have a party to celebrate." This is generally expressed in public with open hands waving and faces smiling.



And there's the kind that says "Screw all you other groups. My group needs attention too, and if you don't give it to us we're gonna make some noise and grab it." This is generally expressed in public with raised fists and clenched teeth.



Which kind of "pride" would make you proud to display?

They have never been beat up, denied jobs or housing, called derogatory names for their sexual identity or had to ever endure one single fucking impact on their personal lives from being straight.

They've never been told they are immoral for being alive, or termed mentally ill, imbalanced and against "natures law", whatever that is.

The term "pride" comes from those of us who have survived a lifetime of bigotry and snideness and often outright hatred and have come to realize that we are worthy people and that we do have something to be proud of IN SPITE OF what people like college republicans think or would have us believe.

Most of us have heard those messages since we were children at a time when your perception of what people think of you shapes who you will become. And here those same people are still trying to do it, but this time they're organizing to do it. It's a travesty of humanity, but then again it's hard to find a republican who isn't.

91. All I know about college fraternities is....
...what Rush told me.
Rush said that naked fraternity men build pyramids and engage in forcable anal intercourse all the time!

WORD!

(not that there is anything wrong with that.
If consenting white fraternity men want to get naked and build pyramids and have anal sex, who am I to cast aspersions.
Rush said it was OK.)

107. What I learned about fratboys
Something else about fraternities that I learned in my 15 years of working at a university: All three of the fratboys I dated over the years were horrible at giving blowjobs.

I'm sorry I missed the naked pyramids tho. It would have been fun to see which ones got upset at their own unexpected erections.

110. In reference to the Torture at Abu-Gharib
Rush said that the things going on in Abu-Gharib were no different than the fraternity hazing that goes on all across America.

If so, the Fraternity members (usually conservative Rush listeners in my experience) should be PROUD of their Naked Pyramid building skills.

Rush said so, so it must be true.

93. I am not surprised
I live in Okla-HELL-ma, and I worked for a university here. This does not surprise me at all! It should be called "Hate Week" as that would be more appropriate.

This reminds me when I was a kid and I asked mom, why is there a "Mother's Day" and a "Father's Day," but no "Kid's Day?" She looked at me and said: "Everyday is kid's day!"

Shit like this is OK. People would scream bloody murder if there were a "White Pride Week." However, since it is just "fags" being the target of hate, then that is OK, especially in this state! I am all for people being proud of who they are, white, black, Jew, Christian, gay, straight....but when your pride is done to denigrate another group, that is not pride, that is plain ol' HATE!

So...I'm Loud and Proud and I'M EXTREMELY DISGUSTED! How tragic. Misinformed misfits unite! Shrub should be proud! Better yet, wonder what D.Drier and K.Mehlmann (sp?)have to say about Straight Pride Week! I think they should join these students in celebration! After all, it's their "time to shine"!!

If overprivileged people feel a need to celebrate that, then big whoop, but when they have just written GLBT folks out of the Oklahoma constitution and want to do the same at the national level, I have a problem. Then, they are just looking for an excuse to trumpet their bigotry. These people can't convince me that their pro-straight is not really about anti-gay.

Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 02:49 PM by mpendragon
I'm betting the "Down with Girl on Girl Porn" and the "Three-Ways are Too Gay" floats won't be too popular. Perhaps the proper counter protest would be a crowd of amorous bi and lesbian ladies disrupting their events. This woundn't be too hard on a big enough college campus. Then next year they can rename their week the "We Feel Threatened by Gay Men Week".

I just submitted this to fark.com for a photoshop contest. Now I'll just have to wait to see if it is picked up.

116. Are they somehow under the impression they're OPPRESSED?!
I mean, the whole point of Pride celebrations of any sort was for people to come out from under historic societal condemnation and/or oppression of something intrinsic to their nature and CELEBRATE it. Black Pride celebrations arose out of people refusing any longer to be oppressed because of their skin color. Gay Pride arose out of gayfolks refusing any longer to be shoved into the closet and told to be ashamed of who they were.

Straight folks don't NEED a Pride celebration. That's goofy. They aren't oppressed, no matter how much they think it's oppressing them for others to be permitted to exist.

Clue bus, coming through, folks. I mean, nobody much cares if you want to celebrate your position on the Kinsey continuum, but it's kind of like making a big deal out of getting a white male elected President. Um, that's kind of been the default, fellas.

At least, if I were on campus, it'd let me know for sure which guys I would never date. I prefer guys who are not quite so rigid in their sexuality, myself.

Neocons don't much concern themselves with gay rights. Some are actually for them. Neoconservative is primarily Kennedy/Bush2 style interventionist foreign policy, and secondarily Reaganomics. The religious right is the intolerant, backwards, troglodyte-regressive conservatives.

C) Gay Pride Week is about fighting all the bigotry and bias in all facets of society. Straight pride week is about fighting gay pride week. Hmm.

They should show up with signs that contain Bible quotes condemning Heterosexuality, and signs that read "All Breeders Burn in Hell!" A few signs that have Strom Thurmond's picture on it with flames surrounding it reading: "Strom is in Hell!" Follow this up by having a megaphone that will be used for shouting vulgar and insulting things at them, and doing everything they can to disrupt the proceedings.

I guess we can just call it Role Reversal Week instead. ;)

i don't think the gay students should protest, they should show up to express tolerance for their persecuted straight classmates. a big banner, a nice all-inclusive chant, everyone coming together to support the straight kids in a university sancitoned event, it could be nice.

kill them with kindness, the jackasses would love to engage in a back and forth protest. how could they argue with a group of supportive fellow students?

167. I graduated from UCO recently
and got into a LTTE war with this idiot for two years. One of his favorite pastimes is writing to the school paper and spouting Republican propaganda.

You can view his handiwork here:

http://www.thevistaonline.com /

Just do a search for his last name in the Archives section.

My favorite was when he expressed his belief that the Middle East crises would be solved if the Palestinians would "just get over it."

Or when, during a seminar he was presenting, he said "Reagan was an economic genius!"

He's managed to piss off most of the non-rich, white republican morons on the campus...

181. The College Republicans are EVIL these days...
I'm currently the president of the Univ. Dems at my university, and the conservatives on campus do nothing but antagonize us. They rip down our posters and fliers, they show up at our protests (as the Protest Warriors) and cause trouble, and they are totally unapologetic about they way they conduct themselves. I tell my members NOT to rip their fliers down, not that any of them would anyways, and I encourage them to try and respect the otherside. We get no respect, whatsoever.

You want to know what Cat (the pres. of the College Repubs at my school) told me the other day..."I don't care about anything but the money. I'm pro-choice and I'm pro-death penalty. Shit I'm for killing babies and murderers. It's all population control. I say we stop all the foreign aid, spend that money on domestic programs, to get the libs off our backs, and that would be that."

I then pointed out to her this flier we had on our table that referred to our national debt, and she shut the hell up. For someone who is supposed all about the money, she had nothing to say about her leader running us into the ground.

To get on topic...I'm not at all surprised by this Straight Pride Week thing. I've heard of these types of events before. When GLBA did some gay pride activities on campus last year, conservatives were threatening to do the same, to which everyone with a brain replied, "Everyday is Straight Pride Day."

Sorry for the rambling...talking about the College Repubs gets me all angry.

186. You know, I think that's a good idea.
When the GLBT groups march in our local parade, I cheer them on. It'd probably let some of the excess air out of these tires if they had a vocally supportive contingency of gays.

After all, the real issue is much more than feeling pride. We want to support the rights of people to express their sexuality as nature intended them to...gay, straight, or a.

182. And god bless them for it. This oppression of heterosexuals must stop!

These brave Republican Youth have risen up from a lifetime of oppression to boldly and proudly say "I'm straight, I'm not going to live in the closet anymore. I'm out, I like sex with other straights, and I'm not going away!". What courage! I mean, we all know how it works when an openly straight man (and especially a straight white guy) applies for a job: "look fella, I'm sorry, but we don't hire your kind here. We're a family-friendly business! Try California, I hear there's lots of 'your type' there." And when a straight couple goes out, we all know about the gangs of 'straight-bashers' that are out there just looking for a straight couple to beat up. And let's not forget about the landlords who won't rent to straights, or the hospitals that won't let a woman visit her husband because the gay majority deems their relationship "too immoral" to give them the same rights that a married gay couple has every day. I mean, god bless the Straight Pride Movement for finally standing up and shouting "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" This oppression of heterosexuals has got to stop! From the gays-only proms that every high school has, to the gays-only churches in every neighborhood in America, to the demonization of straight Americans in politics and on gay-talk radio, from every corner of America to the other : straights have been paying the price of gay intolerance for far too long! It's high time that the straight minority stood up to the gay majority and said "enough! I, too, am a human being!".

(note: any hint of sarcasm you may detect in the preceding endorsement is merely the unavoidable effect of centuries of gay domination on the oppressed hetersexual psyche, and is yet further evidence of the need for a true Straight Liberation Movement)

(note 2: any hint of irony you may detect in the notion of a group of Republican Youth organizing a weeklong celebration of heterosexual sex among college students is also merely the product of an oppressed mind)

(note 3: any Republican Youth you may witness during this week who appear to be imbibing in alcohol or other mind-altering substances are -- and I cannot emphasize this enough -- merely the product of a culturally oppressed imagination, and are in no way evidence of duplicity on the part of the Party and its Youth Wing, and should NEVER be reported to the authorities, as this would also constitute further oppression of me and my Straight Republican Brothers and Sisters)

(note 4: goddammit, somebody called the cops on us. That makes my *third* MIP this year. Just who do all you gays think they are, anyway?! Do you know who my father is?!!! I'm going to take this up with the Greek Council, just as soon as I sober up.)

184. Are they going to wear their hoods, too?
Being straight has nothing to do with it. It's all about being proud that they're arrogant, bigoted assholes.

185. The College Pukes in my College did a similair stunt. It's disgusting
they had a Protect Marriage & Straight Pride Day.

Such ignorant sobs, it only looks bad for them. Being a party of bigots and hate.

192. An idea
I see a lot of "message deleted" posts, and it probably doesn't take any amount of genius to figure out what the content of those posts were. But, you know what? We're all adults here, right? We all know that this is wrong. If these people with their hateful comments want to "come out" with their "straight pride", I say we should let them. Let them make fools of themselves in public. They deserve to have every facet of their foolish beliefs dissected and questioned from every angle, until they shut up and think about why they believe these things.

200. Wheres the local Democratic Party people?
And where is the student chapter in this? IMHO, weakness or wavering during an attack on GLBT issues is simply reprehensible. We are the party of the underdog. Compromise is utterly non-negotiable.

Sickening.

203. there was a research report out saying that Stanford (that 'liberal
bastion") are becoming more conservative. It was a large study-of many Univesities--and can probably find it by Gooddling.

204. That's totally fucking absurd...
"Straight Pride Week"? Isn't that pretty much ALL THE FUCKING TIME? Does this mean all the heterosexuals are going to wander around engaging in public displays of affection, and extolling the virtues of marriage and breeding? And how is this any different from any OTHER week, in our society?

Also, what the hell are they even DOING in college, if they lack the critical thinking skills to see how utterly STUPID this is?

Also a bunch of straight cross dressers would liven things up.

209. What Is Wrong With These People???
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 10:37 AM by arwalden
This is a direct result of Bush's* FAITH-BASED ANTI-GAY BIGOTRY initiatives to get the Christian vote.

It's always been okay to demonize gays... only it had become something that people did quietly. They whispered their hatred behind your backs, they committed hate-crimes in the dark of night... NOW THEY CELEBRATE THEIR BIGOTRY!!

What is WRONG with these people?

214. such meaningless pride
I think pride in what you were born with is generally pretty worthless.

That goes for just general gay pride too. Much more impressive is pride in your own ability to admit it and be open to a less-than-receptive family or culture. That takes courage.

Its not much to be proud of to 'admit' something that is the cultural norm. Boring, for sure, but why not let these proud straight boring men do their thing?

224. Expect more of these events to take place at other schools.
The republican party and the Bush White House love to direct the College Republicans in hate mongering activities. If they consider this to have been a success it will proliferate like the affirmative action bake sales did.
