    I'm neither a medical professional nor a temporal physicist, but I think it's probably not a good idea to engage either a relic or a time traveler.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Most homosexuals don't dress in drag unless they're in a drag show.

    The implication being that a group of homosexuals proclaiming what they are is activism. Other groups, meanwhile, aren't condemned to activism by their very existence. That's a pretty messed up double standard.
    Organizations for gays such as Glenn are activists groups with political ties. A gay carrying a banner for GLENN is against the rules as it would be for a pro life organization carrying their banner or an animal rights group such as PETA or the NRA. This parade is about St Patricks Day not some smorgasbord of activism. All are welcome to be in the parade, they must leave their activism at home. Those are the rules. Too bad Heineken and Sam Adams' public relations can't wrap their little heads around that concept. Oh well, I always thought Heineken was a "skunk" beer. And Sam Adams for the prices they charge, their product is far inferior to what micro breweries are producing all over the country.

    thanks MMC, ill keep reading other stuff to because currently it seems theres no activism present but i could be wrong if evidence surfaces


    Heya AJ I have been checking.....I cannot find any others from other activists organizations being in the parade. Not even Peta. No banners.....no signs and no sponsorship for any activists.

    Like AC said for many it is a Religious Holiday.....if any groups then it would be the Culture of the Irish.

    Myself I am going with keep it that way for all. Keep the Political out of it.

    I wouldn't find that objectionable at all, but that isn't what they plan to do.

    What is the intention of these groups in this parade? The pic of the drag queen "Panti Bliss" (what an offensive and lewd name) with De Blasio sends a very definite an public message that I find inappropriate and objectionable.

    I suppose this was last year's parade:





    This is offensive to families and shouldn't be viewed by children

    To be fair & inclusive, there really needs to be a group of a-sexuals, bi-sexuals and straights, too. And of course, they'd need banners to declare which team they're on.

    Srsly, I think Dallas' St Patrick Day parade has always had lots of gays participating. .. mainly because they like wearing green and white sequined tophats!

    It's carrying signs declaring their sexual preference people object to. And with good reason.

    How do you know? Did you sneak a listening device into their secret faggy planning sessions?

    I wholeheartedly agree, your posts and your attitudes most definitely are offensive and shouldn't be viewed by children.

    What exactly is the good reason for objecting to a group of gay vets carrying a tasteful banner -- much as a high school marching band would carry, identifying what school they're from -- identifying them as gay vets?

    1.) well until we can show that THIS group is an "activist" group you are focusing on the wrong thing.

    thats what ive been trying to find, it seems they wanted a banner that said gay veterans group or somethign of that nature. Theres nothign activist about that

    2.) this is already meaningless as st patricks day is about as religious as halloween and every other major holiday. They also already said that"

    "Let me clear up one misconception. Gays are not banned from this parade. Everyone, whether Irish, Jewish, Hindu or pansexual, is welcome to attend the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the nation’s largest. The event dates to 1762, when the British still ran this country, New York was more than a century away from acquiring five boroughs, and people still friended each other in person.
    All can attend — provided they don’t carry signs identifying themselves as gay."

    3.) again im fine with this also. Im fine with keeping activists and politics out of it but can you tell me what is activist or political if the banner simply identifies thier group? if the banner says "gay veterans group"?

    now again i admit maybe they wanted OTHER banners and that may have been the issue i simply cant find that info.
