that could be said for homosexuals also, at least the ones out of the closet. I have many gay friends and they are pretty prideful of who they are.

I dunno, I don't think it would be as colourful or interesting as it's counterpart. Now, a cougar/cub appreciation day...

Allegedly Gay pride parades are to help foster acceptance and celebrate "diversity". I say "allegedly" because in most pride parades I have seen on TV- and the many I have seen and worked at in person- they look more like freak shows. Guys dressed in drag, in outlandish/pornographic/cross dressing/ridiculous outfits. How exactly does that promote acceptance of a gay lifestyle? Yes, there are many "normal" floats and marchers for various groups and causes, but I'd guess 75% of the parade folks I have seen are out of their minds and their behavior makes Mardi Gras look like an Amish picnic. Whatever, but doesn't an event like this undermine the argument that there is essentially no difference between gays and straights? Do "straight people" have their share of degenerate/wild events? Sure- see the aforementioned Mardi Gras celebration-, but they also don't pretend they are representative of any particular group other than the lunatics who attend/sponsor that specific event.

So would a heterosexual pride day be a good idea? Probably not, because as evidenced by the responses here, "every day" is supposedly heterosexual pride day. Any attempt at such an event would be immediately be labeled as divisive, homophobic, and hateful.
