The following article is editorial in nature and expresses the opinion of the author, a current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
If anyone wonders why many folks in the “straight” community can’t take the alphabet community seriously, all you have to do is witness the lunacy that takes place during their so-called “pride” parades and that will provide the answer.
To be sure, the freak shows that are these parades likely do not represent the majority (we hope) of that portion of those communities, but as the most visible component of them, they provide a glimpse into the mindset of the main advocates of that lifestyle.
As an opinion piece in PJ Media notes, people who attend these displays are treated to “every kind of debauchery imaginable” in full display in cities across the country, from San Francisco to New York City. However in many of these communities, police officers need not attend (why they would in the first place is questionable). Because nothing says “tolerance” than banning those who serve and protect all of us (including the alphabet community).
A website called “Fatherly” posed a question recently: “Should you take your kids to a pride parade?” Why of course you should, they propose, however warn that you need to have some “discussions” with them ahead of time as to what they will be exposed to.
Pride Parades and the Pride festivals that follow are noisy and crowded. They’re filled with sights that may be new to kids, like public nudity and kink. So is it appropriate to take your young kids to Pride?https://t.co/CZDnooZq5f

The site warns that such public displays are “filled with sights that may be new to kids, like public nudity and kink. Not to mention that Pride parades aren’t the most sober of places.”
Now in most cities and towns across America, people walking down the street with no clothes on are arrested for crimes such as public indecency, or if done in front of kids, risk of injury to a minor. The alphabet community, however, gets a pass.
So, if bringing your impressionable young child to one of these parades, you need to “have a conversation ahead of time.” You know, just like you do at a Memorial Day parade, or 4th of July parade. Oh, you don’t do that? You mean there’s no debauchery, kink, or nudity at these parades?
Now we will surmise that some unhinged leftists may need to talk to their little whippersnappers about the fact they may see some dreaded “weapons of war” on display at these parades. But for the most part, they are, shall we say normal.
Now if you’re planning on bringing your kids to one of these displays of debauchery, Jessica Fish, Ph.D., an assistant professor of family science at the University of Maryland’s School of Public Health, has some suggestions.
“Talk to your children about Pride as if it’s not just this big party but it’s a celebration of being—that it’s a recognition of historical oppression and uprising,” Fish says. “[Understanding] the roots of that celebration of Pride is just as important as your child understanding that LGBTQ people exist and thrive within their communities.”
Let’s go back to why those of us in the straight community don’t take the radical alphabet community seriously. We’ll hand it off to another wizard of smart, Jennifer McGuire, Ph.D., associate professor of social science at the University of Minnesota (noticing a trend here?), a self-professed lesbian mother.
McGuire said she prepares her children for what they might see at these parades, and after a while they knew what to expect.
“They just had to learn to laugh and enjoy things. Like there were these Beanie Babies with giant penises on them,” McGuire says. “For a fourth-and fifth-grade kid, that’s super funny.”
So, what does “pride” have to do with Black Lives Matter? Aside from being populated by unhinged lunatics, probably not much. So why will families representing Black Lives Matter be at the head of the San Francisco pride parade this year?
According to the organizer, they are being “placed first so that we always know that we sill have work to do and that San Francisco Pride is supposed to be doing that work.” Again, what does that have to do with Black Lives Matter? Oh yeah, they are both trying to destroy the nuclear family.
Wonder if the participants get a free night’s stay at Patrisse Cullors’ Studio City mansion?
Let’s go back to our original point. We are currently at a time in our country where the most radical elements of society are dictating to the rest of it. Minority? Hardly. The loudest .5% of society has the other 95% doing what they say or else.
When gay marriage was first legalized by the Supreme Court, many of those in the straight community took the position that “we don’t care what you do, just don’t throw it in our face.” We don’t throw our heterosexuality in your face, don’t throw your sexuality in ours. We really don’t care.
We also knew at the time that the loudest among that group, the maybe 5% of that community were not going to stop at gay marriage. And that has come to pass, with males pretending to be females on university swim teams, teenage, testosterone-laden boys being allowed to use female restrooms at high schools, and a company that used to promote family values admitting they are trying to groom children into a state of gender confusion. That is where many of us draw the line. We won’t even get into the new phenomenon of trying to justify pedophilia. Yes, we knew that was coming too.
Sure, these pride parades may look like a good time, especially for young children who are enticed by bright colors and insane-looking people. And that is exactly the issue. To what end are children being exposed to this garbage?
We are living in a society where all sense of right and wrong no longer exists. We look at incidents such as what occurred in Uvalde, Texas and on cue, leftists don’t blame the pscyho that shot up the school but instead blame an inanimate object.
Yet those same people claim we need to understand the “root causes” of our border issue, while ignoring the root causes of school shootings. And much of that has to do with the debasement of society and removing God from our classrooms and that can be seen on full display at these freak shows disguised as pride parades.
How are we, as straight people to view people bringing children to these events as anything other than an attempt to, in some ways, groom children? They haven’t even been trying to hide what they’re doing in general. Look at Disney. Their senior leadership has admitted that they are going to insert deviate sexual material into fully 50% of their productions. That’s not grooming?
As the piece in PJ Media notes, what other conclusion is there to draw? The writer notes that those who want to groom our children “need to overcome children’s inhibitions about sex and disabuse them at an early age of any notion that sex out of traditional marriage between one man and one woman is wrong…they’re counting on the fact that Beanie Babies with penises are going to entice your children more than anything they hear in Sunday School or in your home.”
Of course a vast majority (we hope) of the LGBTQ community just want to live their lives, just like the rest of us. As always it is the loudest, smallest percentage that gets all the attention. Until the majority of that community speaks out and admonishes the freaks that populate these pride parades, it will be hard for those of us in the straight community take them seriously.
Yes, those pride parades may look like a good time, however as a parent and grandparent, I wouldn’t want my grandchildren anywhere near one of those events. Beanie babies with giant penises? God no. Children have enough to deal with in the journey we call life.
Exposing them to the cult that is the radical LGBTQ community is child abuse…plain and simple.
ICYMI, following is a piece we published about San Francisco Mayor London Breed actually defending the police department after they were banned from marching in that city’s pride parade.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – In a refreshing show of solidarity between a major Democrat-run city and its law enforcement professionals, Mayor London Breed has announced that she will not march in next month’s Pride Parade unless her city’s law enforcement officers are allowed to wear their uniforms while participating.
In 2020, organizers of one of San Francisco’s marquee public events banned police officers, sheriff’s deputies and firefighters from marching in their uniforms following a confrontation at the event the year before, when at least 12 people sat down in the street with arms linked, blocking the route to protest the involvement of police and corporations, Google in particular.

The list of demands circulating on Twitter before the 2019 parade, which were ignored, called for an outright ban on law enforcement’s participation. It said:
“No police within the Pride Parade and no police presence at any Pride celebration, march or demonstration. The system of policing upholds white supremacy, hetero-patriarchy, gender binaries, and capitalist rule.”
The protest lasted for about an hour before the streets were cleared. The SFPD said in a statement at the time that two people were arrested during the parade after “protestors broke down barricades and threw water bottles at officers.”
This year’s parade, which is scheduled for June 26, marks its return after a two-year absence due to COVID-19 concerns.
Suzanne Ford, interim executive director of San Francisco Pride, said law enforcement officers are free to wear t-shirts with their department’s logo but not professional uniforms. In a statement to Fox San Francisco, Ford said:
“We didn’t ask anyone to hide, or not to denote who they were. We just did not want full uniforms, out of harm reduction to marginalized members of our community.”
Local law enforcement groups, which have participated for years, find the uniform ban offensive and have opted not to march.
Mayor Breed said in a statement to Fox San Francisco:
“I love the Pride Parade, and what it means for our LGBTQ community and for our city. It’s one of my favorite events of the year. However, if the Pride Board does not reverse its decision, I will join our city public safety departments that are not participating in the Pride Parade.”
“Let’s be very clear about who we are talking about: brave women and men who not only have the courage to put on their uniforms and go out and risk their lives every day to serve our city, but who also have the courage to do so as openly out women and men in uniform.”

The San Francisco Police Officers’ Pride Alliance said its members would not participate in the parade. The group said the ban made officers feel as though they were being forced to go back into the closet by not being allowed to proudly wear their uniforms. The group said in a statement:
“Let us be clear: this committee would not order the leather community to wear polyester at the parade. This committee would not order the drag community to wear flannel. But they have told us, peace officers, that if we wear our uniforms, we may not attend.
“For LGBTQ+ officers, this brings us back to a time when we had to hide at work that we were LGBTQ+. Now they ask us to hide the fact of where we work.”
Department members are disappointed that parade organizers would rather ban police than build bridges between them and the communities in which they work. Officer Kathryn Winters, a member of the SFPD Officers Pride Alliance, noted the irony of being excluded by a supposedly inclusive group. Winters told ABC7:
“I would really like San Francisco Pride to embrace the values of San Francisco, the values of radical inclusion. We want to be able to show the members of our community that there are people just like you who put on these uniforms every day and are out there to support, help, and protect you.”
The San Francisco Fire Department said that it backs the mayor and police department’s stand on the issue and will not participate in the parade. SF Fire Department spokesman Jonathan Baxter said:
“We need to allow the public to see that our uniformed law enforcement officers are good, they do reflect our community.”
New York City has banned police officers from participating in its parade altogether.
Discrimination: NYC Pride bans all law enforcement from its parade festivities to create ‘safer spaces’
May 16, 2021
NEW YORK CITY – Organizers of New York City’s Pride events said they are banning police and other law enforcement from marching in the group’s annual parade until at least 2025 to create “safer spaces for LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities.”
On-duty officers will also be kept a block away from the June parade so that they are not seen at the event, which is supposed to celebrate diversity.
Back in 1996, GOAL (gay cops) had to sue the NYPD to march formally in the Pride Parade as NYPD. GOAL won and the NYPD was reluctantly dragged into the late 20th century. Now GOAL is banned from the Pride Parade because they're cops. https://t.co/Lqw3QJNBVA https://t.co/xr2kBj1FQ2 pic.twitter.com/3GkUDxFTv4

“NYC Pride seeks to create safer spaces for the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities at a time when violence against marginalized groups, specifically BIPOC and trans communities, has continued to escalate.
“The sense of safety that law enforcement is meant to provide can instead be threatening, and at times dangerous, to those in our community who are most often targeted with excessive force and/or without reason.
“NYC Pride is unwilling to contribute in any way to creating an atmosphere of fear or harm for members of the community.”

NYC Pride said the steps it was taking is intended to “challenge law enforcement to acknowledge their harm and to correct course moving forward, in hopes of making an impactful change.”
The ban is not only for this year, but until at least 2025 when at that time a review will be done by the Community Relations and Diversity, Accessibility, and Inclusion committees, as well as the Executive Board.
What safety measures will be taken for an event that millions attend each year? According to the statement:
“NYC Pride will transition to providing increased community-based security and first responders, while simultaneously taking steps to reduce NYPD presence at events.”
NYC Pride also made it clear that “NYPD is not required to lead first response and security at NYC Pride events” and that “all aspects of first response and security that can be reallocated to trained private security, community leaders, and volunteers will be reviewed.”
In addition, “an increased budget for security and first response will allow NYC Pride to independently build a first response emergency plan using private security and provide safety volunteers with de-escalation training for first response when necessary.”
NYC Pride parade bans police; Gay officers 'disheartened' https://t.co/dEgbDw552W via @Yahoo Unbelievable…you better hope some anti-gay factions don't attack while your parading down the streets with the real police over a block away.

The organization also noted:
“NYPD will provide first response and security only when absolutely necessary as mandated by city officials.
“In these instances, NYC Pride will review foreseeable NYPD involvement and, in partnership with surrounding venue precincts, take steps to keep police officers at least one city block away from event perimeter areas where possible.”
