There only purpose was to make the parade all about them and there agenda , I for my self and only myself do not like individuals of whatever gender they think they are whose only purpose to exist is to purposely make everything  all the time about them and there agenda in the most tasteless and classless way possible , as if I dont have to enough individuals around me doing enough of that already !

Wow, those legs. Mmm, easy to see why the mothers are all "concerned", AKA jealous.

/ maybe something a little more child appropriate would've been better. Just attire even

Endive Wombat: Frank N Stein: This type of stunt hurts the gay rights movement more than it helps

THIS 100%!!!!!

When you say "Gay man" it should not conjure up these dudes as a typical stereotype.  The what I am calling "establishment gay-rights movement" is fighting VERY hard in shedding itself of this stereotypical "look" and these guys are not helping.

Personally I see this as a setback, and nothing more than attention whoring at its worst.


Maybe they're straight.

MrHappyRotter: Honestly, if I had the time, the money and the knowledge that this was going to happen, I'd have gone down there JUST to see this in person!  Talk about a show, are you not entertained?

After reading the article, it's actually a little funnier.  Apparently these guys were asked to participate in the parade by the organizers.  It's basically the equivalent of event organizers asking a controversial or inappropriate comedian to perform at a show, then acting shocked, absolutely appalled, when said comedian does his or her usual schtick.


No doubt there is some level of responsibility on the part of the organizers.  That being said, it is a freaking children's parade, personally I would dislike it if it were scantily clad women.

Time and place people.

If I had to bet money, I wouldn't bet on straight, sure.  I'm just saying, maybe this isn't a stand for gay rights at all.  Maybe it's just dudes who like to dress up and dance.

If the organisers didn't want them to perform, they shouldn't have invited them.

Frank N Stein: This type of stunt hurts the gay rights movement more than it helps


Uh... Not to nitpick here, Frank, but where exactly did they say they were campaigning for gay rights? Does everything you do as a straight man (I assume from this silly comment) reflect on heterosexual rights? Because damn, by that standard all the dead beat dads, wife beaters, child killing parents of the world have damn sure made sure your straight rights and married rights should all be taken away.

These guys are just being who they are, not trying to campaign for or get additional recognition except as anything other than their dance group. I assure you if a straight guy wanted to do the performance and dress the way they do he'd be more than welcome.

As for the "no one wants to see that" guy.... I don't want to see slutty ass cheerleaders acting like whores every time I watch football, but I don't biatch about it and start screaming about "OMG THE CHILDREN, THINK OF THE CHILDREN!"

Which also brings up my last point. All of this bullshiat about it being a "Childrens Parade" - this parade is a parade for the town, NOT a "Children's Parade" a google search shows just as many if not more adults than children at the parade over the years - and a closer look shows some pretty slutty elf outfits. On white women.

I've put up with softcore straight porn being blasted at me for 27 years through cheerleaders, tv, movies, etc because it's "normal" and "what's expected" or "what most people want/expect" and quite frankly even though I don't find these femenine guys attractive, I think it's about time it happened.
#1 Because straight white males aren't the only people in the world.
#2 and more importantly though, payback's a biach. Feel the burn.
 
2013-12-22 09:56:00 AM  

AverageAmericanGuy: Lackofname: For those who DRTFA, these guys were Invited by the parade organizers, who apparently didn't look up what kind of dance group this was, watch any youtube videos of their performance, or anything.

AverageAmericanGuy: Warlordtrooper: AverageAmericanGuy: If this is what gays think of as "gay culture", perhaps I can see how some straight people might be put off by it.

This has less to do with gay culture and more about how men are subjected to double standards when it comes to gender equality.

Sure, but we men got the better end of that deal. Are these guys fighting for the right of men to prance around like little sexpots? Because 1) that's already our right and 2) no one wants to see that, bro.

I wager the amount of people who want to see it are equal to the amount who want to see scantily clad women.

At the parade, or in general? Because if you're talking in general, I'd take that bet.


Yeah I should have specified AT A PARADE.
 
2013-12-22 09:56:29 AM  
It seems to me like they just trying to make a political point. Showing your gay pride with sexually suggestive dance moves at a Christmas parade in Alabama meant for children, then when people get offended they can say, well you wouldn't be upset if we were women?

I know it's easier to side with the gays in this story, because someone will call you a bigot if you don't. Double bigot in fact, because they are black also.

Still it was a cheap political point.

I'd still take that bet, especially if we are defining 'scantily clad' as the level of clothing these guys are wearing.

It is estimated that gay people are only about 5% of the population. Sorry, I like you guys, but you're a fringe group despite what TV and Hollywood would like to suggest.  What you don't like to see really is "normal" or at least what the vast majority of people want to see.

As far as your #2?  Schadenfreude is a poor tool to teach tolerance and acceptance.

Because women would never want to see attractive men, closeted people never lie, non-scientific studeis are always right, and bisexual men never count? Is that what you're saying here?

Even still, assuming your 5% number is correct, (I assure you it's not.) this is like saying "ban Hawaiians from dancing in parades, they're only 1% of the world population! Gross! No one else wants to see it!"

I think your "analogy"is a little weak to say the least.  They're aren't homosexual men dressed up making sexual innuendo on the sidelines.  If they want to have a gay pride Holiday parade, I am fine with that.

/BTW, saying a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader "garbage" is just foolish.

BizarreMan: I've seen women doing that type of routine in parades.  Nobody seemed to mind.  Hell last parade I went to there was a troupe of girls, maybe aged 7-16 doing it.  Yes, highly inappropriate.


I am for marriage equality and I fully support gay rights, however a Christmas parade is not the place for this type of routine.

Doesn't matter if it's women, men etc (especially young girls).

It's actually been warm the past few days; you can see quite a few spectators wearing t-shirts as well.

A bowel movement is nothing to be ashamed of. It's a completely natural and necessary bodily function. And I sincerely enjoy a leisurely, healthy one. It's just me being me. And yet, there are times and places where it's more appropriate than others.
