    I agree with you, it's inappropriate.

    However, there are extremists in every group that tend to embarrass the rest of the group. Then the opposing side takes the examples of the extremists and vilifies the entire group as a whole. This happens in PRSI about every 10 minutes.

    Some examples on the left:
    LGBTQ - inappropriately/overly sexualized
    Protestors - against free speech, against white cisgendered males​

    Some examples on the right:
    Religious - denying health care to a child because God will fix it
    Gun owners - murdering innocent people​

    Some hobby examples not really political:
    Motorcyclists - insanely dangerous driving and stunts
    Drone operators - peering into my daughter's bedroom​

    In all of these examples, the majority of the people in those groups are totally normal people for which we could all get along together. I know several LGBTQ people, and they are all great, normal people who would never do this and who are embarrassed by it.

    I do this myself. For example, I just assume that everyone who has made it to US Congress and the White House are corrupt. IMHO the ones who are not resigned/impeached/jailed either haven't been caught yet, or have literally legalized their corruption. I admit, in reality, there might be one or two who aren't corrupt yet.

    Isn't Pride all about celebrating who you have sex with? I don't think it is possible to take it out and still have anything left.

    Gay pride parades have always been full of nudity and sexuality. If the community wants a family friendly version then they should start their own thing. It’s like getting mad at a casino that has gambling and serves alcohol.

    Personally I see the sexual aspect of gay pride parades being the participants giving the finger to the people grossed out by the sexual aspect of their relationship as if that’s the only thing it is about. Without that it would just be a bunch of normal looking people shuffling down the street. that's not a good time.

    I tend to fancy goats and ferrets myself, hopefully they can make it a LGBTQGF parade next year if they really want to be inclusive.

    A rainbow flag is child appropriate and gets the celebration point across. Two men or women holding hands also gets the point across.

    Wearing a vagina hat is a bit crass.

    Not at all. Reducing the gay community to what we do in the bedroom is a tedious oversimplification.

    A scary high percentage of this country would be less offended and worried about their kid’s perceptions if there was a gun parade as opposed to a parade of people with an active sex life, regardless of orientation. FACT.

    I see that it only took 14 minutes for one of my examples to get vilified.

    to counter those open carrying dildo's are seen as "extremist" as those sporting AR 15's out in public............welcome to Murika.

    The gay culture/community has become much more solidified in mainstream America. The Pride parade is no longer looked at as a sideshow by mainstream America(which is a good thing). So at least when it comes to the major pride parades, which kids and families will and already do attend, they are going to have to tone down the explicit side of things.

    I compare it to how Times Square on New Years Eve used to be. A bunch of drunken fools having a good time running all over the place with no barricades, while getting our pockets picked. Good Times. :D

    But those days are over. :(

    what he is getting at IMHO is that what you do in your bedroom is fine, while the nudity & BDSM out in public might turn others off.............

    I'm not concerned with pandering to others.

    Agreed, but given some of these hand-knit pink vagina hats are what one would loosely call abstract protests, is it really that big of a deal? I mean if they really wanted to get crass they could always use 'flesh light' tops as "facinators".

    There would be a class action suit coming your way, but your abused local fauna don't have opposable thumbs required to set up the trail cams.

    Oh good. I was afraid we wouldn't make it to page 2 without a false equivalency.

    well, the author of the article seems to think otherwise when it comes to "pandering", point is you only get so far by being crass

    does it not depend on the message you are trying to convey?

    "look, BGDSM & Dildos" " look, bunch of vagina hats" <<<<<<<<< pretty much washes out anything you are trying to convey in Murika. the disagreement of what the parade should be comes from?????????? the LGBT community itself.

    I don’t think they should have to do anything. I’m tired of mainstreaming and commercialization sucking the life out of everything to cater to the Rated G crowd. You want a parade for kids? Go to Disneyland or 98% of the other parades that take place in this country.
