I saw Daddy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
Saw spots of green and red
Get these thoughts out of my head
I wish that I'd rolled over
and gone back to sleep instead

Not that there's anything wrong with that

I saw Daddy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
I couldn't make a noise
Yeah, who would've thought that he liked boys?
It seems that he's much further in the closet than my toys

Then Mommy and Daddy are kissing Santa Claus
It's a three way, three way tonight
I tell you it was rough
Seeing Mom as fingercuffs
Maybe this year, since Dad is queer,
I'll get some better stuff

Not that there's anything wrong with that

MrHappyRotter: I decided to be objective about this.  I spent a few minutes on Google image and video search, combining various terms and phrases with Christmas parade.  While I did not do an exhaustive and methodical scientific survey, I never the less have concluded that these guys' outfits and dance moves were absolutely no better and no worse than many of the cheerleader, dancer and sporty category of Christmas and Santa attire and dance I saw in videos and photos.  The only difference, as far as I can tell, is that it's somehow inappropriate, disgusting and insulting when men do it.

But in all fairness, I didn't exactly compare the mens' outfits and dance routines to parade participants at Semmes, Alabama.  Perhaps those folks would have been equally displeased if attractive women wore similar costumes and performed the same dancing.  Some how I doubt it though.  Maybe a few mothers would be upset, and of course the fathers might play along for show.


Normally, in Semmes, Alabama the women dress like this, so you can see why the vaginas were sandy that day.

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.

And the husbands' entire excuse for never dancing will be challenged, and he figures it will be the worst, most drunken New Year's Eve ever, and some of it will take place on the dance floor.

He'll just mutter "Shoot me now." under his breath. Out loud, he'll say "But I don't have any short shorts or I hurt my back hanging lights or that hotel ballroom just burned down."

Yes.  And when one recalls the responses to Miley Cyrus' twerking, which is not substantively different from the kind of routine these guys did, he would be hard-pressed to verify that the complaints are necessarily gay-bashing.  Is it too much to ask for decency in the public square?

I'm sorry that gays existing offends your delicate sensibilities. You can be a shut-in and avoid reality altogether.

The fact that you would make a comment like that identifies you as the type of gay rights activist who does not want tolerance of gays or equal rights for gays.  You obviously believe that everyone should be gay and that gays, because they are somehow more noble than heterosexuals, deserve more rights and special rights.

Sexualised women at such events is seen as normal and cute, sexualised men are scary and vulgar. And they're gay so now it's super scary and disturbing for some people. And they're black. And it's in Alabama. I'm surprised someone didn't die of a heart attack.

One of those strange things, if a man and a woman are in a room and the man is the naked one, he's considered the sexual predator. If a man and a woman are in a room and the woman is the naked one, he's still the predator.

Women can wear any colour they choose without having their sexuality called into question. Men seem to have a long list of things they can't wear because it might look gay or wrong or something.

My husband watches Torchwood and likes the show but fast forwards past men kissing each other because it makes him too uncomfortable.

Political? Wait.... What???

You are politically grandstanding. They were doing a dance routine that was about as political as the Rockettes at Radio City. Which I saw for the very first time this year. Which was incredibly awesomely awesome. The audience was about 50% children, most under 10. The horror. The horror.

Merely being gay or being in drag or being fabulous is, on its own, not a political statement. It is a fashion statement. You are politicizing it as it makes you feel all squirmy. Which I think is hilarious. The kids don't care. They just like the glitter. My god, do little girls love glitter.

The common thread here, as you say, is that many of you are batshiat crazy and are just making stuff up.

(Okay, my final observation?  A few groups had females in clothing that showed a lot of leg...  But they weren't dressed as revealingly above the waist as the gay black dudes...  no midriffs, I don't think... Also, nobody was doing anything that could possibly be called 'dancing.'  I could see them doing sexy dance moves, and that being inappropriate. [ they're black guys.  And gay.  That's +2 on the big-schlong scale.  I'm sure their hip-thrusting came along with seeing some snakey outlines].

That being said, the scantily-cladness of the young girls in this thing is kinda creepy).

Also, gay black dudes - workout more.  You're dancers.  WTF's with the belly?

When should four black cross-dressing homosexuals walk down Main Street in Alabama?

During a Mardi Gras parade, I would think.


And that's it?  I can walk down main street every single day.

Inorite?

This seems to be a one-shot deal, and entirely based on the inattention to detail by the parade organizer. No children got hurt, though there was a little butthurt on the part of some "adults", and they'll all have something to remember for years to come.

But judging by some people's reactions, you'd think they had hired a GG Allin tribute band or something.

AngryDragon: brax33: 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.

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 ...


All straight people like to look at scantily clad women?  Because I'm straight, and oddly enough, I prefer looking at men.

I know it's hard to remember that women are people and not just things to look at sometimes.

Honestly, the outrage really boils down to one simple sentence:
It's all fun and games until someone finds something 'immoral' attractive and they begin to question their sexuality.

And to be fair in Alabama (I grew up in South GA which isn't much different.) not only is the 'gay' immoral, so is the feelings whoever, men, women, unichs, get about people outside of their own race. Leave the city down here and interracial couples get it worse than gay couples sometimes.

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.

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.

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.
