A piece posted on Fatherly.com suggests that people should take their children to Pride marches – but by noting that such events can involve “public nudity” the play actually proves that under no circumstances should parents consider taking their children to Pride- take away festivities.
“Pride parades and the Pride festivals that follow are loud and crowded. They’re packed with sights that might be new to kids, like public nudity and kink. Not to mention that Pride parades aren’t the most sober places, is it appropriate to bring your young children to Pride?” the play asks. “Considering the benefits for all families — including meeting other LGBTQ+ families like yours or appearing as an ally when your family members are straight and cisgender — the answer is absolute.”
The play states that Jenifer McGuire, a lesbian, has attended Pride events with her children, who have learned to expect nudity.
“They just had to learn to laugh and enjoy things. As if there were these beanie babies with huge penises,” McGuire said, according to the outlet. “For a fourth and fifth grader, this is super fun.”
The play suggests preparing children before going to a Pride event by reading them children’s books about LGBT issues: “Before you go to Pride, you should also provide your children with a few more children’s books about LGBTQ+ people and – assemble families. Children tend to point and ask questions when exposed to new things, and you don’t want people celebrating Pride to become a convenient life lesson for your children.”
Delano Squires responds to a tweet about the article commented“That kind of ‘fatherly’ advice (written by a woman, by the way) is why we’re in this position today. or any other political agenda.”
The US military and the US government have declared what is known as Pride Month. President Joe Biden gave one proclamation. That Department of Homeland Security and department of the Ministry of Finance both raised Pride flags. The Marine Corps welcomed LGBT service members and released a graphic showing multicolored-tipped bullets, in an apparent nod to the LGBT rainbow symbol. That air force also issued a tweet recognizing Pride Month.
