June 29th, a day that started out like any normal day, but has gone down in history as the first national #HeterosexualPrideDay. Okay, well the first recognized heterosexual pride day, because as many of these tweets point out, every day since the dawn of society has been heterosexual pride day.
Below are some of our favorite reactions to this absolute nonsense.
