Twitter is hella pissed at three straight guys who have suggested having a “straight pride parade” in the middle of LGBTQ+ pride month and Chris Evans has joined in on the hating. It all kicked off when the Washington Post reported about a “straight pride” organization who are protesting against LGBTQ+ pride groups by having their own pride flag and plans to conduct a “straight pride parade” in Boston in August. Twitter was enraged, obviously, and Captain America decided he wanted to voice his opinion on the issue.

Chris, who was born in Boston, responded to a tweet from the Washington Post‘s coverage of the men’s initiative on Wednesday with this witty tweet.

“Wow! Cool initiative, fellas!! Just a thought, instead of ‘Straight Pride’ parade, how about this: The ‘desperately trying to bury our own gay thoughts by being homophobic because no one taught us how to access our emotions as children’ parade? Whatta ya think? Too on the nose??”

Chris continued his rant towards “straight pride” events on Twitter by sharing a post from author James Bell about how misguided the gatherings are.

“Wow, the number gay/straight pride parade false equivalencies are disappointing. For those who don’t understand the difference, see below. Instead of going immediately to anger[ ](which is actually just fear of what you don’t understand)[ ]take a moment to search for empathy and growth,” Chris wrote.

“There’s nothing I’ve ever had to fight for, or struggle against, because I’m straight,” James Bell wrote in the post. “And therefore, there isn’t any reason to take pride in it. Grateful for the privileges I get? Sure. But pride? I don’t see it. What I do see is that this parade is misnamed. It’s not a ‘Straight Pride Parade.’ I should be called a ‘I’m a homophobic piece of sh*t’ parade.”

Twitter users everywhere are echoing the opinions of Chris, mocking the Boston-based individuals who are responsible for the dumb AF “straight pride parade.”

As if we didn’t already love Chris Evans enough — a true gent.
