As I reported yesterday, Brad Pitt’s management has warned Straight Pride organizers to stop using his name and image as their parade “mascot.” So this change went up last night on the group’s website:
Due to a scheduling conflict, our former mascot is no longer available. Not to worry, we found someone younger, more handsome, and more in tune with heroic masculine virtues. Milo Yiannopoulos has accepted the offer to be mascot and Grand Marshall of the parade! The livestream will take place Monday, June 10th at 1 PM Eastern Standard Time and can be seen at the following link.
Upon his appointment as Grand Marshall, Milo Yiannopoulos said: “I might technically be a sequined and perfectly coiffed friend of Dorothy’s, but I’ve spent my entire career advocating for the rights of America’s most brutally repressed identity—straight people—so I know a thing or two about discrimination.
“This parade is a gift to anyone, male or female, black or white—gay and transgender allies, too!—who will stand with us and celebrate the wonder and the majesty of God’s own heterosexuality. Men, bring your most toxic selves. Women, prepare to burn your briefcases! Because it’s great to be straight, and we’re not apologizing for it any more. We’re Here, Not Queer.”
I did tell you days ago that I thought Milo was involved in this idiocy.
