Re "Offensive gay displays" (Forum, June 19):
Wade Marshall Miller doesn't think gays should be treated seriously because he "witnessed some of the 'acts' that the gays were doing on one of the [Pride Parade] floats. … Men dancing in what looked like their underwear, making a spectacle of themselves, behaving in a manner I felt was offensive."
I understand Miller's sentiment. This year for spring break I visited a lovely beach only to find it full of half-naked straight college students in swimwear dancing around making fools of themselves. Imagine my surprise when I visited New Orleans for Mardi Gras, only to find drunk straight people everywhere, and I don't need to reiterate what some were doing to get cheap plastic beads.
