Happy Independence Day to straight white males.

I’m not celebrating this year.

First year I’m not celebrating in my life.

@Charles_Foster I share the sentiment, but we can’t show that here. Don’t think I’m agreeing with the other side by hiding it.

Is it just straight white males who celebrate Independence Day?

Seems like a sweeping statement

Any other race, sex or sexuality being framed in that way would be considered to be an outrageous stereotype that would not be tolerated

Happy 4th to everyone that celebrates.

This independence day is definitely a sadder one than usual. Still. We have plenty of rights to be proud of. Hell even forums like this arent allowed in other places. Free speech FTW!

In the US women, LGBTQ and PoC have to worry about their rights again. In 2022.

And it should be RICH straight, white guys.

I think that makes more sense if you add the money in

Most straight white men are a very diverse group

Don’t think it’s useful to group anyone like that to make such a point

I don’t think we are supposed to talk about the one issue. I forget the other couple of Supreme Court rulings

No one has mentioned anything except for people being in danger of losing rights. We aren’t discussing anything in depth, just a explanation why people aren’t celebrating the 4th so people outside the US understand.

I’m not planning on doing any celebrating. Just waiting for fireworks to be over honestly. It’s actually kind of a bummer, because I woke up energetic and lots of things are closed. Even the botanical park I was planning on visiting with dog is supposedly closed. How tf do you close a park?
