According to the sourcelink, the ever-growing number of hockey players who are pushing back against NHL’s “Pride Nights” and refusing to wear LGBTQIA++++++++++++ themed jerseys, is causing the league to “re-evaluate” such events.
This is a good thing, and good on the players who’ve refused on principle to be forced to show “pride” in something that warrants absolutely no pride whatsoever. If you feel pride over the specific genitals you prefer your genitals coming into contact with, you’re a crazy person. It’s just that simple.
I added the emphasis.
How on Earth did this “pride” BS get started? You cannot justly be proud of anything that’s not your personal achievement. You did not “achieve” your race. You did not “achieve” your ethnicity. And unless homosexuals have been lying this whole time, you did not “achieve” your sexual orientation. So what’s the deal?
I suspect that beneath the “pride” nonsense is something deeper: a profound sense of low worth, owing to a personal irrelevance to others’ lives. If you have nothing to offer others – that they’ll happily accept, that is – then you mean nothing to them. Your existence is “socially optional.” Your role in others’ lives is minimum, possibly confined to your participation in the congestion on our roads.
But if you have anything to offer that others value – even if it’s just your friendship and emotional support – you have something to be proud of. Take pride in that! Work on increasing and broadening it! And get your BLEEP!ing flags and rainbow jerseys off our hockey rinks!
