You will be made to not only tolerate, but endorse. And, yes, celebrate.
The Washington Post published an op-ed by a former prostitute who identifies as “gendervague,” in which the author encourages parents to show their children “kink culture” in the “queer community.”
Lauren Rowello argued in the Post that children are benefited by being exposed to LGBT sexual activity at public parades. Rowello uses her own kids as a backdrop for the story, highlighting how she took them and her transgender partner to a gay pride parade several years ago.
“Just as we got settled, our elementary-schooler pointed in the direction of oncoming floats, raising an eyebrow at a bare-chested man in dark sunglasses whose black suspenders clipped into a leather thong,” she writes. ” …[P]olicing how others show up doesn’t protect or uplift young people. Instead, homogenizing self-expression at Pride will do more harm to our children than good. When my own children caught glimpses of kink culture, they got to see that the queer community encompasses so many more nontraditional ways of being, living, and loving.”
There is no “queer community” in America. Gay people have different views, neighborhoods, and values, just like other Americans. Some LGBT individuals use the month of June as an excuse to engage in inappropriate acts and stroll around in public nude. Many gay people do not engage in this exhibitionist behavior.
In the pages of the Washington Post, then, Rowello celebrates exposing children to extreme sexual behavior and romanticizes this disturbing decision, claiming kids will actually reap benefits. Rowello goes so far as to criticize those who object to child sexual abuse, claiming children can consent to things they do not understand:
Anti-kink advocates tend to manipulate language about safety and privacy by asserting that attendees are nonconsensually exposed to overt displays of sexuality. The most outrageous claim is that innocent bystanders are forced to participate in kink simply by sharing space with the kink community, as if the presence of kink at Pride is a perverse exhibition that kinksters pursue for their own gratification.
Uh huh. Let me see if I got this all, uhh, straight, then. According to you warped Leftists: A) having “kink” waved in our, and our kids’, faces during a public parade does NOT amount to being “forced to participate,” but B) Silence Is Violence!™
Okay, got it.
But kinksters at Pride are not engaged in sex acts — and we cannot confuse their self-expression with obscenity.
Oh, aren’t they? Because I could tell you stories about activities I personally witnessed at the NYC Pride parade—I was walking through the Village one fine afternoon and found myself caught unawares as the parade passed flamboyantly by me—that would thoroughly discredit that assertion. Trust me on this.
Thus, so it goes, there is nothing wrong with kids being potentially groomed or indoctrinated with pride propaganda through prepubescent sexual exposure to even pornographic public acts. Rowello writes that taking kids to witness “kink” at a gay pride parade “opens space for families to have necessary and powerful conversations with young people about health, safety, consent, and — most uniquely — pleasure.”
The argument being made by Rowello aligns with the left’s interpretation of the sexual revolution. It’s exactly why an elite New York private school hosted a pornography training, and why Ohio State University hosted an OnlyFans seminar in March. It’s why Netflix backed the film “Cuties,” and why a Texas school district taught anal sex in “health” classes.
“Kink embodies the freedom that Pride stands for, reminding attendees to unapologetically take up space as an act of resistance and celebration — refusing to bend to social pressure that asks us to be presentable. That’s a value I want my children to learn,” Rowello declares.
I’d like to interject with a few questions, if I may.
- Why can’t you people just leave the rest of us alone?
- Why can’t you people just keep your sexual proclivities and/or practices to yourselves, rather than insisting that the rest of us be witness to them?
- Why is it “unfair,” “unjust,” and “bigoted” that the laws barring public displays of nudity, sexual acts, and lewd behavior apply to gays attending or participating in a parade or other public event, when the fact is that if I walked around waving my goob at all and sundry, spanked my wife/gf’s bare ass with a riding crop, or got caught cuffing my carrot, screwing the ol’ lady, or just meandering around in the raw during the town Christmas parade, I would most certainly be cuffed and hauled off to Riker’s to await trial in a New York minute?
- Are you really so demented, so profoundly narcissistic, so just plain fucked in the head, that you do sincerely believe that forcing young children to be confronted with open displays of sexual deviance—actually, to any kind of adult sexual behavior at all—is perfectly moral and somehow “good for them” psychologically and emotionally?
- I really don’t give a damn what ANYBODY does in private, or where you choose to put your dick, excepting children and small animals. I consider that sort of thing to be none of my business, and have no desire to intrude or interfere. Not my circus, not my monkey. So why can’t you be content with that? Do civility, forebearance, and decorum matter at all to you? Why am I expected to stand up and cheer for your every personal sexual inclination?
- If I derived sexual gratification from coming to your house wearing nothing but a strappy leather bondage harness, squatting to take a fragant dump on your lawn, then closing the show by masturbating to completion on the front porch, would you be good with it? Would you extend me the same courtesy you demand of everybody else via a stamping, whistling, standing ovation? If not, why not? SURELY you wouldn’t think my behavior offensive or unnerving, would you?
- Where does all this end? When is enough enough?
You just take all the time you need with those answers, pal.
