Avoid Evil Gay Days, There's public sex in the restrooms!

Ridiculous.

Yet they fail to mention any straight couples who may have done the same...

Gotta watch those wave pools at the water parks..lots of interesting things happening in there. You get a pretty good view from those lifeguard stands and it's too bad you can't take a picture of their faces when they realize they've been caught!

Never saw any same sex action going on though....

What a legendary time; Gay Days. Mad, mad, mad gays running amok having unprotected (ok, I made that part up. ) sex in public places, groping one another on line for any attraction, wearing pornographic shirts (some without the benefit of proper lingerie) and most of all, attempting to recruit anyone in their path...

The funniest thing I see at MK on that fateful first Saturday are the heterosexual couples who grab onto one another when a group of gay folk (or anyone wearing red) walk by. It's as if they fear that their partner is going to be lured by the Pied Piper of gay and never be seen again. As if.

Children having a good time with their families, regardless of family dynamic. Old friends running into one another unplanned, making new friends while waiting for an attraction, laughing uproariously at the Bears and friends, at Country Bear Jamboree... mostly? The high level energy and true welcoming and warmth of the CMs that surpasses any other day of the year, and that is not hyperbole. At no other time are the smiles, welcoming, spontaneous comments of friendship, and willingness to help so evident from CMs in parks, resorts, and restaurants.

So, all who dare to enter then, be prepared to enjoy, or if not, simply do stay away. We'll have a private giggle on you, because "oh so worried guest" every day at WDW is gay day, you just don't understand that!

I could not stop laughing at the poster who talked about "the gays' radical agendas" or something like that omg. Most likely, though, from their perspective, our existence is a radical agenda.

Apparently I missed all the good stuff! There was no live porn show anywhere in DL when DH and I (quite by accident) honeymooned during Gay Days. There was some good natured eyerolling at our newlywed cutesy stuff, but dang, apparently I frequent the wrong bathrooms!

I had a good chuckle about the "radical agenda." No mention of the agenda of the guy who skywrites...

Cool

I don't know why anyone is scared to be in a Disney Park with Gay People.
There are plenty of nice straight and gay castmembers to protect them.

And again, the PDA stuff, if you see two straight newlyweds kissing at The Yachtsmen Steak House to celebrate their honeymoon, why put that in a different light than when you see two gay newlyweds kissing at the Yachtsmen Steak House. Now if you see two parents yelling at their kids at the Yachtsmen Steakhouse, now that trully is an ugly sight to behold.

Now if they have a problem with a costumed Luke Sykwalker kissing a costumed Princess Leia, I under stand that just isn't right, SPOILER ALTER they are brother and sister after all.

The last time I went to Gay Days, the most popular people hanging out with a Troop of Girl Scouts, was a couple of Gay Teachers who had them singing songs with them for about a half hour waiting for a boat launch. The horror of it all, all those Girl Scouts were having more fun than anyone, and they weren't even selling Girl Scout Cookies. (Thin Mints My favorite please).

The worse thing that happened on Gay Days, they ran out of MICKEY ICON RAINBOW PINS by 10 AM. The second embarassing thing that happened, was that while trying to pick out a Princess Hat for my niece's birthday, a fellow Red Shirted Gay Man turned to me and said "It will look perfect on you". We laughed, but he didn't really believe it was for my niece.

Sorry, saw the thread title and had to check it out.

Every time I see those threads I think about someone I knew whose son came out to them when he was a teenager. The mom IMMEDIATELY started planning a trip to WDW during Gay Days. Poor kid, he comes out, expects shock and awe, but no, his parents use it as an excuse to make an extra trip to WDW on the premise that he would get to hang out with a bunch of Gay role models at the park.

That's a Disney-addicted family right there, ya'll.

That is a fantastic story. As long as we keep our priorities straight, we'll all be fine.

Just noticed the threat title and had to check things out. Read the thread that prompted this, too.

I think the whole "controversy" is ridiculous. I've never been to a Gay Days - we like to travel during the first week of December for all the Christmas stuff. But never in a million years would I consider avoiding the parks because of them. If anything it'd be a cool bonus, and I'd be counting red shirts.

I used to take my kids to our town's Gay Pride parade every year. Unlike Disney, these aren't always "family friendly". But in the event a couple folks got carried away and started molesting each other in the crowd, I just moved the kids along without comment. They never noticed a thing, any more than they ever noticed the girl with her skirt hiked way up "sitting" on her boyfriend's lap in other venues.

Now my kids are a couple of teenagers who don't seem to have been damaged by regular exposure to the "gay agenda". They don't drink, they're not having sex, they're not using drugs, and they maintain reasonable grades in school. My daughter cried when she read that Rolling Stones article about "The War on Gay Kids" and then forwarded it to everyone she knew. My son, for his part, once tried (sadly, without success) to get gay slurs banned from the playground of his middle school. His teacher read his rant on the subject ("You don't know who's gay, and even if you did, it's not like it's something they chose to be!") to the entire Grade 6 class. I'm proud of my kids!

Anyway, just wanted to say that not all us white, Christian, heterosexual family types would cringe away from someone in a red shirt, or hassle a photographer taking a picture of a couple guys. Peace!

The most recent argument about a "Straight Days" really grinds my gears...people that try to use the reverse discrimination-esque arguments don't seem to understand that there is no such thing. The definition of discrimination is harassment of a minority or marginalized group. You can't be racist to a white person (nor sexist to a man, bigoted toward a straight/cisgender person, etc.) because they are a place of power and privilege. People were all up in arms about the one poster's comment about every day being a white, straight, male, and Christian day, but it's the truth. While there are always many people of different races, genders, sexual orientations, gender identities, religious affiliations, belief system, etc., in the parks, the VAST majority of people are white, straight, cisgender, and are of some denomination of the Christian faith.

Grrr. That whole thread makes me so angry.

Racism is not racist to those who want to be racist. Sexism is not sexist. Bigotry does not practice bigotry. All these qualities ask is that you discriminate against one another. Discrimination is one who does not discriminate. Any and all are welcome to this club.
