A major American city has reportedly agreed to allow a Straight Pride parade. Organizer Mark Sahady shared that the parade would take place in Boston in August. 

"It looks like the Boston Straight Pride Parade will happen. We filed a discrimination complaint and it appears the City of Boston understands they would lose in litigation," Sahady wrote in a Facebook post. "The city is now working with us on the parade. We will have the streets closed and be allowed to have floats and vehicles."

Needless to say, Twitter wasn't down with this kind of bigot bacchanal. Though Sahady posted a parade route, users weren't shy about telling him their thoughts.

The straight pride parade will be mostly men because very few women will get to come.
