In any event, if there is a problem with kids being exposed to public nudity at these parades then my issue there is more with parental judgement than anything else.
I've been to a few over the years.

99 percent is just local organizations like, banks, airline employees, the local gay village Denny's, liquor sponsors, doctors, firemen and women, politicians, hospital employees, at one time the city police and even the RCMP, unions and local gay clubs with a float of young guys dancing in speedos. No worse that cheerleaders shaking their talents.

The raunchiest I've seen is a leather group. Guys in chaps. I heard in Toronto they had nudist group march au natural.

Raunchy means earthy, vulgar, and often sexually explicit. Nudity doesn't mean sexually explicit.

So if one minute in a three hour parade, of seeing some guys butts in chaps, is raunchy to some, so be it.

Complaints about the parades aren't because they amped up raunchiness, but because they have become so corporate.

In other words, boring.

I would agree. You can get a lot of free stuff though, so there's that.

I appreciate that Netwit. I really am speaking from the heart here. We will all have our disagreements, but it doesn't mean I don't respect posters.

For me the whole topic of the Trans community didn't resonate until my partner at the time of over 6 years, told me that he never felt 'right' as a male. I was 'shocked' but at the same time, instantly certain things started to make sense. There was a sadness with him, he was conflicted and I couldn't put my finger on it.

It took him almost 27 years at the time to come to this realization. You see, it is impossible for me to doubt the validity of how how he - now she feels because we spent a lot of time together over those years. I knew this wasn't some phase or some random choice just because he watched Ru Paul's Drag Race, it was a genuine reflection of what he was going through. It just took him that long to have the courage.

Ironically, maybe a bit of tragedy for me, I had a part in him building confidence in himself that he should be true in life and courageous. So you may ask why tragedy - well because the man I loved was changing and inevitably our relationship would change. It has, she has since moved on to explore this life and is now with a man who embraces her as she is.

It is still hard for me and there is an emptiness inside but I never wanted to have a relationship with anyone if they are not able to be true. Life isn't clean and people change. Sometimes that change isn't easy and comes at great cost. Sometimes it takes a lifetime for such courage.

So for me, as a person, she doesn't represent a movement if you will trying to cancel J K Rowling. It is a personal experience with someone who meant the world to me. Not some Lesbian coworker trying to convince someone who is not gay he is gay, not some statistic or medical journal - Just someone whom I trust and is true.

Some people call that whataboutism, I call it logical consistency.
