Public Obscene Acts "pride" parade advocates say children like to see "nakedness" and "kink"
LIFESITE NEWS REPORTS:
According to HuffPost Canada, Pega Ren brought her grandchildren to a homosexual "pride" parade in British Columbia. When asked about the appropriateness of children participating in the LGBTQ event, she said, "I can't imagine a safer place for families to bring children." Pride parades in Canada and around the world feature not only public nudity and sex acts, but also various other forms of perversion and deviance on display.
While even within LGBTQ circles there has been debate over whether or not children should be exposed to displays of adult nudity and sexuality, HuffPost quoted a retired sexual diversity professor, David Rayside of the University of Toronto, who said, "Pride has always had a kind of outrageous edge to it. And should we alter that? It is not the Santa Claus parade, and it never was. It shouldn't be. It can't be." Rayside said it is "important for parents to bring their kids" to "pride" celebrations, adding that he has never seen people "fuss about what they see there."
S. Bear Bergman told the publication there is no reason not to take children to "pride" parades. He told HuffPost that he takes his own children to the Toronto Pride parade every year. He said, "It's their right as queer spawn. And as a parent, I might want to take my kids to Pride, because they might be lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer or two-spirit."
Bergman said the display of adult public nudity should not be a problem for children, saying, "... nobody likes nakedness more than children." Bergman added that he does not want his children exposed to "compulsory heterosexuality, demonstrations of sexism, demonstrations of racism, demonstrations of able-ism, violence.
These are all way higher on the list than some homosexual's tuchus." Bergman is a writer and publisher of books for children.
