If I told you that I was going to take my kids and hang out with a group of dolled-up cross-dressers, transvestites, and a bunch of lesbians garbed as hookers, you would probably be concerned.
And if I told you that while there, they would see a big, red bus filled with gay men and adorned with the picture of a baby in a nappy on a backdrop of homosexual images, you would probably be very uncomfortable. No doubt you may also think it more than a little bizarre if I tried explaining that this formed part of a campaign against HIV in the homosexual community – which I deemed worthwhile sharing with my offspring.
If you then knew that on this excursion my children would be exposed to nudity, sexually explicit activity and groups promoting sado-masochistic homosexual practices and clad in leather like they were about to begin, you would probably think about calling in the child protection agency.
Yet this is exactly what some people did on March 2, 2013. However, instead of explaining it that way, they probably just said they were off the Mardi Gras with the kids for some fun. And to expose the next generation to a life without boundaries.
It seems like child abuse to me.
And if it’s not, then it must be right about on the boundary.
If you don’t believe this occurred, check out this image and this one. They are by no means isolated.
I can just imagine some smart defence lawyer using images of the ‘politically correct’ Mardi Gras to defend their client in sexual abuse cases.
“See your honour,” he might say while holding up images of children sitting at the front row while lines of homosexual men in intimate embrace pranced past with their pants cut out (like they did this year), “My client didn’t expose himself any more than your average participant in the Mardi Gras does in front of the kiddies, year in, year out.”
While the homosexual community may be defensive of its so-called parenting skills, can they please explain why they think it appropriate for children to be present when this parades past.
And if you think this image is a little light on, it can’t be that all that bad, then go and have a look at the Mardi Gras images on flickr or on the official website. I will have the decency to warn you that it is not pleasant, so I wouldn’t bother.
Certainly no other community thinks its acceptable to behave that way in front of children.
This is where it gets difficult for the Australian Defence Force. It has decided that it is acceptable to join the conga line of an overtly political, religiously insulting and sexually explicit parade. It now marches with the poor kids who’ve been brought along for the ride.
At what point does the ADF become complicit in child abuse?
