Sure, if the other side weren't fighting back, maybe resting on one's laurels would work. But when you've got various religious groups out preaching about the evils of homosexuality, you have to keep your message alive, or you'll end up losing ground.

Please check out the second comment (by someone that goes by 'blyan') from the original article. It's clear that even in the gay community there are different opinions on the effectiveness / 'appropriateness' of an event like this. That post sums up my most important point and blyan did it much better than I could. Sorry for the rambling -- like I said in an earlier post -- brevity is not one of my strengths.

I've grown tired of this thread and have no interest in fighting with you guys about this. We've all shared our opinion on the matter and I hope we can each respect each other's opinions going forward. The Blue's News folks are a great bunch of people - of every demographic. Go play some games and think twice before you call someone a 'fag' or 'gay'.
