Amidst all the gushing and glowing reports from the various gay pride parades around the country yesterday (which was also national HIV testing day, proclaimed without a hint of irony), there was a consensus that the parades were family affairs. Hey, what’s not to like about bringing the kids out to a great happy parade?
Except that scenes like these have never been nor ever will be suitable for a family affair. This link is to the ChicagoNow blog. The first several pictures are innocuous enough, but be warned, it doesn’t stay that way.
Perhaps because I’m not a hypersexual maniac I find it difficult to understand the need to wear little or nothing and parade myself along in front of everybody while making lewd gestures. And I’ll never bring my children to such a non-family affair.
