I think this hits the nail on the head. Personally, I am a firm supporter of civil rights for the gay community, not to mention my overall view that what goes on in the bedroom is no one else's business.
However, there are those in the gay community who seem to want it both ways--acceptance as simply another member of our diverse society, and to draw shock at the flamboyancy and outlandishness exhibited by certain members of the gay community.
As far as the appropriateness of the statue is concerned, I am reminded of a headline in The Onion
"Gay Pride Parade Sets Homosexual Movement Back 50 years".
