    @ Yubaru Well, the cops were there directing us during the parade and no one was arrested . I find it hilarious that someone was trying to quote indecency laws.

    I guess for me at the end of the day is why MUST I be expected to support gay rights (whatever that means)? Do Man-boy love groups asK me to support them without question?

    Wow! I'm actually appalled that you think that homosexuality is being crammed down your throat. And to compare homosexuality with pedophia?! Really?

    Because the way it is these days is if I do not "support you" then I am homo-phobic. GLTB or whatever you are - get over it

    !No one is forcing you to support gay rights or marriage. It's that now , it's more out in the open. No one has to be ''in the closet'' anymore, unless they choose to.

    I CHOOSE to support gay rights. Me: a straight and married female. It's people like you that now gays are louder and prouder! I've witnessed first hand what denying your sexuality can do to a person. My sister didn't come out for years ,in fear of being ostracized by family and friends. She lived in a miserable existence and almost killed herself over it. When she finally came out, it was so liberating for her. I am so proud of her! She's now happy and healthy, being who she truly is.

    Yesterday, I marched at that parade, for my sister and my friends who deserve to be free to love , be married, have a family and happy, like heterosexuals can be.

    You're right Lowly. Maybe ''outlandish'' was the wrong choice of words. Maybe ''campy''. I took photos with them yesterday. Nicest guys and really cool.

    @some14some, sooooooo that's all you took away from my comment. sigh. And as always, people judging from behind their comp screens.

    Again, my point was that the press chose the most outlandish pic they could find instead of maybe the ones of people with ''normal'' clothes on. Makes for a better debate doesn't it.

    I attended this event yesterday and was in the parade. Not everyone was dressed like this! It was only a few and some staff. I was there to show my support to my friends and a family member who are in the LGBT community. All I saw there was love, unity and sparkle.

    So people who talk about the costumes because of one photo, really should stand back. If you weren't there, you have no room to talk and judge the whole event by one photo. And this was mild compared to the pride parades like in San Francisco and New York.

    Maybe some folks should actually GO to the event before making comments about it.

    I'd check out. Hopefully, it's a no smoking bar.

    This is SO wrong, on so many levels. I don't get the ''no-dating'' policy. I think it's to ensure they don't get pregnant or what?

    I can't imagine letting my daughter join a group or a band that restricts her from being a normal adult. Mind. Boggled.

    I'm confused about the ''2 year ''thing. Did he know her? How did he know her routine so well?

    The whole campaign to get rid of chikans hasn't worked. For the ''Ladies Only'' cars usually have men in them.

    I'm happy and proud to have 3 cultures in my life. I was born in Puerto Rico, raised in NY, and married to a Japanese man. I'm proud that I can share my Puerto Rican and American culture with my Japanese family. However, I do have my ''Puerto Rican'' pride, because it's how I was raised at home.

    It doesn't matter where you call home, as long as you don't forget where you're roots are.

    @basroil. I get what you're saying. The photo of the Vietnamese girl being burned by napalm, 9/11 pics etc. But what photo journalistic integrity did this photo have?

    I'm a former New Yorker and I can tell you, it's about self-preservation. It's a tough place. I remember being taught as a kid not to look at anybody when you're out or on a train. Because you just never knew who would snap just for looking at them. Even in Tokyo, I still live by that rule (and stand as close to a wall as possible)

    From what I read in other articles, the pusher had been harassing and cussing at other passengers. The poor guy who got pushed ,was trying to calm him down and instead was catapulted into the tracks. There were other folks on the platform,but they ran away. I'm pretty sure if you saw somebody getting stabbed, shot or thrown down like that, many of you wouldn't stick around to see what happens next. Unlike Tokyo, people don't only carry knives.

    Having said that, the photographer guy doesn't get a pass. His excuse was that he wasn't strong enough to lift the guy up. But yet he was snapping away during the man's final moments. That's not self-preservation, it's perversion.
