There’s an undercurrent of anger and protest at the recent laws, but the overwhelming mood at Budapest Pride is celebratory pic.twitter.com/zHR7QEOYpv

It’s all women and a few soy males!
I wonder why homosexuals get so aggressive when you try to prevent them from accessing children?
After all, homosexuality is just about what consenting adults choose to do in the privacy of their own bedroom – right?
Thousands of Hungarians have joined the annual Budapest Pride march to support LGBTQ people and protest against a law that limits teaching about homosexuality and transgender issues in schools.
Hungary’s nationalist prime minister, Viktor Orbán, in power since 2010, has introduced social policies that he says aim to safeguard traditional Christian values from western liberalism, stoking tensions with the EU.
The European Commission has launched legal action against Orbán’s government over the law, which came into force this month, saying it is discriminatory and contravenes European values of tolerance and individual freedom.
Demonstrators at the march through the streets of central Budapest on Saturday said the legislation was dividing the former Soviet-bloc nation and now member of the EU.
“The law is an outrage. We live in the 21st century, when things like that should not be happening. We are no longer in communist times, this is the EU and everyone should be able to live freely,” Istvan, 27, said at the march with his boyfriend.
Orbán’s Fidesz-Christian Democrat government, which faces a tough election next year, says LGBTQ rights and other such social issues are matters for national governments to decide. It says the law aims to protect children, not target homosexuals.
Irony of ironies, communism actually protected family values.
Conservatives will tell you this is much better than communism.

Conservatives are also trying to promote gay anal ramming in China and Cuba, for some reason.
The question is: which is better for society?
- Promoting gay anal ramming to children, or
- Not doing that?
It’s something that the conservatives who want to bring “freedom” to China and Cuba should have to explain.
