People On Twitter Have Come Up With The Best Response To #HeterosexualPrideDay Trending.
This month, for many places around the globe, is Pride month. While many are showing their pride and support for LGBTQ+ communities, there has been a vocal minority spreading hate and intolerance.
The latest version of this attempt to counteract LGBTQ+ support is the trending Twitter hastag, #heterosexualpride. Straight people took to Twitter to show their support for the severely underrepresented straight community.
Proudly Heterosexual, Happy #HeterosexualPrideDay

Lots of heterophobia on twitter today from #HeterosexualPrideDay being the top trend. Liberals hate everything that's normal.— Mark Dice (@MarkDice) June 29, 2017

Oh crap I just realized I didn't plan any #HeterosexualPrideDay parties! I guess I'll have to do it one of the other 364 days it happens.— Wil Wheaton (@wilw) June 29, 2017
Here are the names of all the victims of anti-straight hate:— Alex Morash (@AlexMorash) June 29, 2017
Know their names, never forget. #HeterosexualPrideDay
When straight people get killed or disowned, denied marriage, adoption, and fired for being straight then #HeterosexualPrideDay can exisit.— Jennifer Benitez (@TheJennyBenitez) June 30, 2017
#heterosexualprideday will this signal the start of soup kitchens for the rich, too?— Alvin The Hip Monk (@AlvinTheHipMonk) June 30, 2017
So, it's #HeterosexualPrideDay. I mean, I'm not heterophobic; some of my best friends are heteros. I just don't want it in my face.— Cherry Bomb (@Blue_Dixie) June 30, 2017
As a straight guy I can proudly say that #HeterosexualPrideDay is stupid. It's like having a National White Month or International Men's Day— Micah F. (@sikeUthot18) June 29, 2017
