I think the notion of insanity is projected onto the children from the parents.

No, neither did my wife.

We didn't judge them. But I agree that would have been hypocritical.

IMO, if they are old enough to notice the difference, they are old enough for the answer. Filling our kids heads with our own preconceived notions when they are starting to become "aware" is a dangerous thing to do.

That is a valid point. Its the Preachers Daughter syndrome.

All of this is based off of what people look like and how they are acting.
Situational awareness is not the same thing as judging someones life choices.

Did a man dressing up as a woman also ruin Mrs. Doubtfire, Tootsie, and countless other movies for you, as well?

You are missing my point. I am less concerned if there is a movie, play, or burlesque house some can choose to go to and see cross-dressing. I am concerned with the evolution of a public parade from an event where floats and marching bands "parade" through town - to an event where there is a stage for broadway actors to dance around cross-dressing and making a political statement at the end about accepting gay choices. That is NOT a parade in my opinion and a sad reflection of the decay of our holiday traditions. Right up there with making Thanksgiving about planning your shopping routes to begin at 5am the next day.

Is nothing sacred anymore? The Gheys have their own parade, do you think they would mind if people decided to enter a straight non GHEY float in their parade? I'm not even sure why they have a parade in the first place?

Very few things are "sacred" to me. A parade is not one of them.

Also, hancho, that example might make sense if the Macy's parade was specifically a "straight" parade.

It used to be a parade. That's it a parade. It does not need to be about gheyness in your face, look at me. I think they need to go back to the closet they came from.

You missed what a parade means to people...it's about the tradition and memories built with ones family...you know the things that matter. I guess considering you don't enjoy traditions you wouldn't understand...so yes you live a sad life

Lol, it's funny that you presume to know enough about me to pronounce my life sad, all because I laughed at someone whose thanksgiving was ruined because of a guy dressing like a girl in a parade. Luckily my happiness is linked to time spent with my family/friends without the tv on featuring a live action commercial.

They stopped putting happy meals in cardboard boxes... Is nothing sacred anymore???

Sova can call some of his pals over and they can dance around in their short-shorts and thigh-highs for us on a stage. That is the definition of a parade these days, correct?

Wow, I'm so jealous of the people in this thread whose lives are so satisfying that they can argue for days about a fukking parade.

As far as getting worked up over tranny's, you didn't see that from me.

For years, our family went to Frankenmuth the Friday after Thanksgiving. The kids enjoyed it, it was festive and we enjoyed it. This year we will probably be in Holly for the Dickens festival. You are welcome to sit home and make fun of us for enjoying family and holidays.
