    So you're telling me I'm not allowed to celebrate White History because the Nazis were white?

    Do black people not celebrate being black because of those pesky Nigerians that killed the school girls? (they probably have guys). Or the fact that Black people also had slaves? Or that Black people made cash from shipping slaves?
    Surprise, surprise. You missed the point once again. But what does history have to do with anything? You're argument is irrelevant when Pride Festivals are predominately about Identity & Culture, not history.

    Pardon?

    You don't know what "average" means? How old are you.

    I do honestly though, not joking here, sympathise with you and for how you've been brought up. You've clearly been fed some real bull**** and not enough truth. It's shocking.

    CARRY ON FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF THOUGH, BABE.
    average....being that there are outliers :lolwut: Dear God, and you supposedly have an elevated position in society. My point about your IQ stands correct.

    Basic ****ing grammar, man.

    I understand spelling errors. I type at 104 WPM so I made the occasional typing error but GRAMMAR.

    YOU'RE?

    Well, I do think there needs to be some more respect for heterosexual male sexuality. When you read feminist stuff or articles in The Guardian or The Independent male sexuality seems to be tarred as something dark, twisted, and malicious. Most of the time though, just like all sexuality, male sexuality is just a desire to have some hot sex. There's nothing wrong with watching porn or looking at sexy photos. We're just enjoying ourselves, and it kinda sucks that we're pressured to feel guilty for it.
    ^agreed.

    As a woman I am getting sick and tired of seeing ridiculous feminist posts everywhere. Men are not The Enemy!

    If you have nothing more to contribute to the discussion other than a grammar check, I guess it is best you leave.

    Although, I think appropriate punctuation you were looking for after "GRAMMAR" is a "?" not a period. But thanks for playing. Bye.

    China is a country, not a race. So why are you making the comparison?
    Black culture, refers to African American culture. There is no such thing as white culture. What it means to be white, varies depending on the region. Every European country has different customs, history & social graces. In Holland it is encourage to greet every person you meet of opposite sex with a kiss on each cheek. Holland and their culture are in no way apart of the culture of Britain. But if you are talking about British Culture and British Pride, then I don't know what you are on about when British Culture is celebrated everyday in Britain. Why dedicate a month or day to it, when it is celebrated 365 days a year? Am I missing something? O.o
    (Original post by Truths)
    You misconstrued my point. I said, why celebrate "white history" when Nazis were apart of it. Instead you should be celebrating British History no?

    And Pride, isn't necessarily about history. It has more to do with culture. But thanks for showing you completely ignorant on the matter.
    The irony is strong. Not sure where to start lol. You're so condescending and acting like a know-it-all when most of what you say is either wrong or just based off opinion.

    What are you on about with 'china is a country not a race?' I never said China is a race. FYI Africa is a continent, not a race.
    But in all seriousness whats your point? Are you saying that all Asians are the same? Because they're not. The people are visibly different and culturally different even within China there are different 'races'. North and South were different from each other. It's a very big country. But I don't see why you keep having to bring race into this...... Why the **** are you so obsessed with everyone's race?

    By your definition of black culture being only about america. That means White culture is only about america as well so whats wrong with those people celebrating their own culture?

    And just an FYI. You're the one who hasn't got a clue about Chinese New year.

    Why don't we just get rid of pride festivals and everyone just gets on with who they are without having to let the whole world know.

    I understand the point. Everyone else has a festival why can't we?
    I feel like this is just a facetious, bitter attempt at proving a point.
    I have to disagree with this

    Please specify the festivals of each race that explicitly state only people of that race can attend.

    I know of festivals like the one in Nottingham which celebrates black culture but anybody of any race, colour or sexual orientation can attend.

    Nothing is wrong with English pride, but the aforementioned festival is something totally different.

    To be honest though, he is right, CNY isn't really about racial pride its just more a celebration of the beginning of the year and appreciation of chinese culture. That being said CNY does make me feel more proud! I just don't think it equates to something like gay pride because gay pride comes as a response to the discrimination, whereas CNY is just like a normal New Year celebration... just chinese

    Not tryna get all defensive or anything, but that's just my opinion - i love CNY.
    ye but he missed the point. Basically my point was. He thinks it's okay for everyone else to have a celebration apart from white people.

    Thats why I used various examples of different festivals but he just picked out black history month and gay pride and changed the subject. What all of these celebrations have in common is that it's pretty much a celebration for a particular group of people. But he thinks that white people aren't allowed to have a celebration like everyone else. Because he thinks that white people being able to celebrate is offensive to him.

    I personally just think he's a racist ignorant idiot.

    This festival was probably a joke to prove a point. And it certainly proves the point in this thread as you can see a lot of racist attitudes towards whites here.

    I understand him because there is no real struggle or need for white people to celebrate to the extent that others do. I think pride (of being white) is fine, but like i said, these festivals and such are a response to discrimination. Nowadays white people generally don't suffer from the same discrimination.

    Would you like to guess why there isn't a wikipedia page on "white culture"?

    And you are YET to explain what CNY is, since you think you know so well. I'm all ears. No comment? Yeh, that's what I thought.

    I see. So who are you to tell Ethnic European straight men what they can and cannot do??

    You keep on saying they don't NEED to celebrate their identity. But, who are you to say what they need and what they do not need?

    I want to celebrate my identity. Why does this offend you?? What is the big deal?

    All i'm doing is highlighting the reason why prides and festivals and things like that are important to people. I'm not trying to dictate what you can and can't do i'm just giving my opinion. You CAN go ahead and do it for yourself if you like and I have no problem. I like to celebrate my identity too! I wanted you to understand why prides and festivals exist for minorities but not for swm, that's my main point here - I'm not trying to go around being offended at everything.

    I find that these groups tend to be very hypocritical. "You have no right to impose on us in any way but you must accept us into your groups and society with no discrimination."
