AVEN users decided on the Asexual pride flag a while ago on the forum. Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transgender, Polyamorist, and members of the Bear culture each have their own flag. Wikipedia's pride flag page list dozens of symbols. A more recent addition is the Heterosexual pride flag.
The Heterosexual pride flag contains two vertical stripes. A blue stripe represents men, and a pink stripe represents women. A heart separates the two stripes. Asexual News could not find any information about the proposed flag other than what appears on Wikipedia and CRW Sexuality Flag pages. The flag shown as the Heterosexual Pride flag uses black and white horizontal stripes. It does not include a graphic of the flag that appears on Wikipedia.
The Heterosexual Pride movement started last year when a Brazilian mayor decided to declare Heterosexual pride day. People interested in following the new movement can follow the Heterosexual Pride Facebook page. The reader may have trouble deciding if the people are being serious or joking.
The heterosexual pride movement & day though....THAT'S a bit too much. I'm curious, what could they need a movement for? Straights don't need to come out or worry about disownment, discrimination or abuse for being straight. The most acceptable & common sexuality does not need a movement or their own day.
Even if this were real, it's hypocritical of us to say anything negative about it. The asexual community has gotten quite a bit of crap about how we're supposedly "privileged " or "sick" so shouldn't have any pride of our own sexuality. While we may not agree with it it's not our place to judge, and we should know that better than anyone else.
I understand that gays and bisexuals have a lot of problems fitting in to society, but that doesn't excuse the extremist minority among them for their actions, and we need to speak out and remind people that it's not a case of homo = good/hetero = bad, it's a case of two different types of people with no right or wrong. If there's no right or wrong, both should have their own identity - It doesn't matter who's the majority.
