When historically, socially and structurally marginalized and oppressed groups like the LGBTQ community, Women, Latinos, Native Americans, Asians, Immigrant groups, physically handicapped communities and many other groups make statements to show their PRIDE, it signifies how they reclaim their power in overcoming the multi-level and INTENTIONAL oppressions that have harmed and discriminated against them! With that understanding, how can certain members of the heterosexual community state they have "pride" in their sexuality when it's never been used to demonize and/or subjugate them?!
As a heterosexual person, I've never been brutalized or hated for my sexual orientation and therefore, cannot in good conscious promote this image in any way! It's an affront to the significant strides and progress the LGBTQ community has achieved and does nothing but continue the separatist spirit that unfortunately thrives in our world. Let's all work to end that and see through the distractions that keep us apart!
