Brazilian Lawmakers Fight for Straights' Rights

If anyone's been put down by society for far too long — besides young white males — it's the straights, of course. That's precisely why members of Sao Paulo, Brazil's city council have adopted legislation to create Heterosexual Pride Day.

Sao Paulo's mayor is reviewing the legislation, but hasn't signed it into law. If passed, Heterosexual Pride Day will take place on a Sunday each December. The man behind the bill, Carlos Apolinario, told the AP that he doesn't hate anyone, he just wants this day to be held as "a protest against the privileges the gay community enjoys," of which there are many. Just ask the 260 gays who were murdered in Brazil last year for being gay.

"I have no trouble coexisting with gays as long as their behavior is normal," Apolinario added.
