Straight Pride Is Trending On Twitter, But It's Not All What You Think

Checking out what is trending on Twitter always has a greater than average chance of making you lose faith in humanity. It was no surprise to me that something called #INeedStraightPrideBecause was trending. Filled with trepidation and not a small amount of self-loathing, I dove into the scrum to see what sort of monsters were out tonight.

Oh. Well. That’s not what I expected! Let’s keep going!

Oh, this is DELICIOUS.

Then shit got less goofy and more real.

For once I can say: Well done, Twitter users. Not one of the top tweets spouted actual Straight Pride idiotic rumblings. It was all either thoughtful, mocking of the terrible hashtag, or a delightful combination of the two. I’m pleasantly surprised.
