cause they dont have to.
and a few folks out of control at gay pride are not representative of all of us. i have gone and managed to not f*&% anyone in public. just as the few folks at mardi gras who engage in flashing, public sex, and sex with animals aren't representative of all straight folks
You're missing the point. Gays who act out in public are hurting the gay cause, and he was asking you what you thought about that.
It would seem that moderate gays should be more critical of those who undermine their cause in this manner. Mardi Gras is irrelevant to that fact, whatever you may think about it.
