Just Proud Stamp by Thiefoworld Just Proud Stamp by Thiefoworld
The idea for this stamp came out from a conversation between `ctJemm and `Pyrochan-dolls in which I decided to stick my spoon :giggle:

The discussion was about LGBT people showing their pride and then straight people showing theirs and how if we are trying to profess equality between sexualities, maybe we should erase the lines between them and instead of say "Gay Pride" or "Lesbian Pride" or even "Straight Pride" or whatever, why don't we just be "Proud of my sexuality whatever it is"? :shrug:

People should all be just proud of who they are, of their accomplishments. I always found that being proud of your sexuality, whatever it may be, is kinda pointless. It just.. is, and it's a part of you. Like saying 'proud to have this mole on my face' or 'proud to have black hair.' You know?

Everybody should just learn to love and accept themselves and one another. And be proud of being a good person, of being accomplished at something, of learning or overcoming an obstacle.

On one side, I agree, I don't feel the necessity of being proud of my sexuality. On the other side, it's everybody's right to feel proud for whatever they want, it may be pointless for you and me, but it isn't for others. For them is why I made this stamp :)

I mean, don't get me wrng. XD I love this stamp because I think everyone should be proud of who they are (within reason) but I kinda think pride can be dangerous and unnatractive if you take it too far. So yes be proud, but be considerate, too.

I never really got the 'pride' thing, to be honest. Sexuality is just... like... part of life and part of who a person is and I don't really see it as something to be proud of, if ya get what I mean. It's like someone saying "I'm proud to be white" and I'm pretty sure that someone, somewhere, would consider that to be racism :slow:

Managing to do long multiplication without a calculator when you suck at maths, on the other hand, is something to be proud of... and I am proud. Very proud. The answer was correct and everything :paranoid:

But in short, I like the stamp :B

Like I've been saying these past days :lol: ... I agree, there are some aspects of my life I don't feel the necessity of show my pride of, and actually, my sexuality is one of them :B I've never been one of those who use rainbow accesories and whatnot =P Even so, there are other aspects of my life I am indeed proud of and I don't care to show how much I'm proud of that. I think is a decision everybody has the right to make, if somebody want to show their pride for their sexuality or how good they are in math.. well, so be it :lol: Hence this stamp, some people will like it and use it, some others will find it pointless... some others will even be offended by it, that's life :B

But in short, thanks D! :XD:

:clap: Very well said! I still don't know my sexuality, for the longest time it's been bisexual (still is) but considering becuase I might be transgender, well it gets quite confusing :XD: becuase if I'm into guys, then it would make me gay, even though my original sex is female. :P

Amen. Especially considering people like me have no lines between sexuality and are instead attracted to personalty regardless of gender. ♥

But most people don't seem to grasp that concept. XD

Or perhaps pride (speaking specifically of enmity, "pride, feelings of aggression or resentment from one side to the other") is the problem.

Can we not simply be what we are and let the rest of the world decide whether they can handle it or not? I don't know, not everywhere, but a lot of the time in my case, when people discuss things like "gay pride" or "straight pride" there is always an undertone of hostility to the conversation. And it's not always the same either, there's hostility from people who don't understand why people aren't all the same sexuality. People who feel resentment from people who feel this way. People who are just hostile in general. People who have been abused/teased for being the way they are and carry around that resentment.

We all carry around these feelings and we think that we have to justify the way we feel because we can't feel whole if we don't feel we're justified in the world. And when we feel we're sufficiently justified, we call that pride and anyone with a contradicting opinion to our view is wrong.


Pride is the root of all evil, I say. It destroys and can never create. Pride starts wars, destroys families, creates animosity between people. I say the world has enough pride. I am not prideful in what I am, I simply am what I am.

Meekness is described as "tremendous power under perfect control". Let the world have more meekness. Why do we feel a need to go around boasting about what we are? Pride has a loud voice and makes itself known and has no problem stepping over others to get its voice heard, but meekness changes the world and cares about the human condition. Meekness gives us the strength to apologize. Meekness allows us to stand aside and conceed the point because we realize that even thought we may be right, it's not the overruling important factor. Pride is centered around itself, meekness encircles all of humanity.


Blegh, sorry. I'm not even sure if I got my point across. It is just something that's been weighing on my mind recently amongst all this gay/straight pride warring.

I think I got you and again, I agree :)
Like how I was saying in a previous comment, I think is a good thing to be proud of what you are no matter what that is, that itself is not a problem and is something I fully support. Problem comes when you rub it to other people's faces and start being hostile like you said.

Pride by itself is not wrong, is the way you handle it, just like money and power ;)

I think the problem lies where there are two different kinds of pride, and people often mistake one for the other. There's pride in being who you are, pride in accomplishments, and other things that are rightfully earned and justified. And then there's unjustified pride. It's the pride that lashes out when we're contradicted, or our standing/power is compromised/challenged. I've met many people who have this unjustified pride and try to hide behind justified pride and excuse themselves as being rightfully prideful. That's what I was mostly talking about, sorry for the confusion. I wasn't trying to contradict anyone and I do agree with you, we should just be people and proud of the fact that we are people and handle ourselves and our pride responsibly :3

I think this is a great image, but it completely misses the point of the LGBT flag. ): The reason that there is an LGBT flag isn't to say "I'm the greatest because I'm gay", it's to say, "I'm gay and nothing's going to change that."

Straight people are fortunate in that we're the majority, and we're on the 'acceptable' side of the fence. We don't need to go around blaring WE'RE STRAIGHT, WE'RE HERE, GET USED TO IT, because...people are used to it. No one beats up a straight boy for being straight. No one gets thrown out of the house for having a same-sex relationship. No one is sent to 'become gay' camp...

Yes I know what you mean.

But yes, that was precisely the point, to erase the line between LBGT -AND- everything else. I know we are all different, but we are all part of the same unit. That's the message of the stamp.

Yeah, I just don't think it quite gets there. Because the intent of the LGBT flag isn't to show that we're not different, but that we ARE different and that's okay.

I don't know, to me it makes no sense being "proud" of something you are as opposed to something you've had a hand in. It's like being proud of having black hair or blue eyes, a bit silly, no offense.
But I'll take that over people using their difference to create division anytime :hug:

It may be silly, but I do think is a good thing to be proud of what you are :B is a decision everyone has the right to make, because I agree, there are certain things I do feel pointless to say I'm proud of :XD: like being human!
I think the only thing I don't support is rubbing it to everybody's face, THAT is annoying XD

Well said, Brother! And being proud of one's sexuality, religion or whatever doesn't mean it has to be "in your face"... it only means that we each, as individuals, recognize our own truth and support ourselves and quit expecting others to do it for us.

I think this is fabulous and will be putting it in a feature soon. Can I quote you too?
