Internet, why are you like this?

Pride month is drawing to a close and it's been a particularly....trying one for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. Now, as a sick joke of some sort, the trend #HeterosexualPrideDay is happening and people aren't quite sure why. 

People are really asking themselves why straight people need a pride day when their oppression is...um...non-existent, really. 

In fact, people spilled some serious tea on how highkey stupid the whole thing is.

The best thing to come from this hashtag is the top notch jokes people are making about this ridiculousness. It more than likely started as a trolling/joke moment but I'd like to make the serious case that boring offensive trends like this derail actual important conversation around the Pride Movement. 

So, in honour of Heterosexual Pride Day (barf), here are some shady gifs you can tweet alongside your 140 character take downs.
