So we were just having a conversation about how gay folks are mad because the Irish Parade to be held in South Boston won't allow them to participate. Please note that this parade is privately funded by the folks participating.  So antyways....gay folks are mad about it.  This led to talks of the gay pride parade.   My boss was saying that he and his wife went to the Pride parade some years back and he was disgusted.  He said because dudes were walking around with tight, tight booty shorts, those S&M costumes where they wear leather pannies and hoods with whips and chains and the like and he was like....but children are here. 


Which led to the question that even tho children and teens participate and come to this parade...is it really appropriate?  I have to admit...from what i've seen of the parade...there were a few times I thought that children should not be here.  I mean...from what i've heard and seen...parents are  encouraged to bring their children to Pride.

and lastly ...do these types of images lend credence to the thought that gay folks are all kinds "freaks"?    Yeah...I know plenty of straight folks that are freaks too but we gone go head and talk about how some gay folks are putting their sexual freakiness in the streets when it comes to the Pride parade.

thoughts?

yes, it's inappropriate for kids because a lot of the floats have adult themes going on but no it doesn't prove that all gays are freaks because every float and participant is not in assless chaps...doing aids walks, being around thousands of gays at a time you can see that they're just normal ppl...but ugh why do the nude ones and assless chap ones always have to be the gross guys with handle bar mustaches or prepubescent looking twinks.

But just to add, gay pride is once a year...on Halloween I see heterosexuals looking like 2 dollar whores all weekend and guys dressed as penises.

Yes and no. The concept? No. Equality and acceptance/tolerance can be taught early.

The execution? Yes. While I realize it's not everyone, some parades/floats/patrons (I'm kinda looking at you, club twinks, bears and leather community-- not fair on my part) tend to use and feature adult themes.

I would fully understand parents thinking the latter is not a good look.

Barring then from the Irish parade is another thing and wrong to me. While it may be their privately funded right, there are gay Irish people. Why not let them pony up the money and participate? It comes across as though the people holding the parade are operating from the view of a stereotype and pulling the monolith card. Not cool, man.
