Rob Ford No Pride : News : SunNews Video Gallery
Why is it so important that Rob Ford shows up to Gay Pride week? What possible reason is there to actually WANT an alleged homophobe at the event?
What could possibly be going through these people's minds to want the attention and the validation of someone who doesn't share that lifestyle? Is it narcissism or lack of self-esteem that makes them crave that attention? Or is it simply a case of the media hammering home their own agenda trying to fix something that doesn't need to be fixed.
See, the math is simple. Mr. Ford is making a choice to continue a long standing family tradition on his holiday weekend. These voters can CHOOSE to not elect him next election. I doubt that the election will hinge on whether he attends the pride parade, but it is a consideration. It's also a consideration that he treats the LGBT community no different than the straight community - that is treats it as equal and no different than anyone else.
... and really, isn't that the whole purpose behind the parade in the first place? To show that the LGBT community members are no different than anyone else?
