Toronto District School Board backs public nudity at Pride parade

In a move that has outraged many parents,the Toronto District School Board voted 16-6 against asking the City of Toronto to uphold Canadian nudity laws at the WorldPride parade on June 29.

Every year the parade includes marchers in various objectionable sexualized garb, such as sadomasochistic clothing,topless women, and even full frontal nudity.

TDSB trustee Sam Sotiropoulos had presented a motion asking the Board to write an official letter to the mayor and Toronto City Council to ask “whether or not the public nudity law of Canada will be upheld and enforced at future Pride events in which the TDSB participates.”

His motion was decisively defeated by the school board, which did not debate the matter, but rather forced a snap vote on it. The motion’s failure was met with cheers from gathered parade supporters.

Instead, a motion of support for the Parade was passed. It encouraged children to support the parade as “a celebration and a political event that has greatly added to the richness of the city of Toronto.”

Although trustees had stated that it was not the board’s place to “meddle in the affairs of the police or city council,” the board has been sponsoring a group in the Pride parade for the last eighteen years at a cost of around $8000 a year.

Sotiropoulos and other critics of nudity at the parade highlight the fact that it is often billed as “family friendly,” a point they note is supported by the TDSB’s own participation in the event.

However, some defenders have insisted the parade was never intended to be family-oriented.

“What Sotiropoulos and others who moan over whether Pride is ‘family friendly’ fail to appreciate is that in-your-face sexuality is the point of the damn thing,” Canada.com News Editor Lauren Strapagiel wrote recently.

What ever happened to protecting your children from perverts...cuz that's what they are.

They can't reproduce so the only way to keep their numbers is about making children their victims.

All animals are equal. Some animals are more equal than others. Bet they’d nail some poor schmuck in the middle of nowhere who pulled over to relieve himself on the side of the highway, though.

the Toronto District School Board voted 16-6 against asking the City of Toronto to uphold Canadian nudity laws

The problems here are like an onion's layers.

-Why is a school board involved with a parade of any sort?
-Why take a vote on the subject?
-Why does a school board feel entitled to interfere with law enforcement?
-Why is the school board supporting public nudity? Are public nudity and homosexuality automatically linked?
-If homosexuality is normal, is public nudity normal for normal people i.e. heterosexuals as well? If so, why do heterosexuals overwhelmingly prefer we all keep our clothes on?
-Why do leftists believe they can, as usual, pick and choose what laws should apply based strictly on political viewpoints?
-Do these same leftists support the frequent prosecutions of Mark Steyn and other conservative writers not for public acts but merely for dissenting opinions?

The arrogance. The hubris. The desperation. The ignorance. Truly stunning.

...or is being in-your-face the whole point of being homosexual in the first place?

There is nothing of ‘pride’ about sodomy, public display of nudity, etc. Sexual perversions are nothing to celebrate.

In your face homosexual behavior designed to bring attention to the lonely soul who has truly lost their way. How thoroughly repulsive is it that many in government would seize the opportunity to build voter bases on the backs of people seeking help by creating a government based right that the government can only protect. The arrogance of government is overwhelming. May those who seek to destroy OUR way of life, a natural life, burn forever in the fires of hell.

To hell with civilized common decency. We must not hurt the queers’ feelings.

We must let them run amuck, naked... adorned with leather thongs and dog collars... performing fellatio and other vile acts in public while our children watch. Otherwise we would be oppressing them. They are, after all, a protected group. We wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings.

Seriously, we should let them run amuck. We should let them do whatever they want in public, then encourage the news networks to take many pictures and broadcast them. That way, normal people will see that the homosexual lifestyle is all about deviant unnatural sex, that’s all.

Of course, the media will not show the vile acts. They will only show the ‘love’ and celebrate the ‘diversity’.

No no, let them parade themselves. I challenge media to show pictures of the disgusting acts the do in broad daylight. Just keep your kids away.

The media will not show all of it, of course.

Sex is the liberal equivalent of Soma from A Brave New World. The left uses it to the same effect - keep people concerned with their own physical happiness, and they will let you control every other aspect of their lives.

The left doesn't only use sex, nearly all of the social issues the left promotes - sex, gay marriage, legal marijuana, abortion, social welfare - all are designed to remove any guilt (and responsibility) that people have for their own lives. The left promotes the idea of - 'If it feels good - do it!". If people are only concerned with their own physical happiness, then they won't care that they are living life no fuller than a caged animal, which is exactly what they have become.

How is it that the homosexuals are co-opting the word “PRIDE”, just as they co-opted the word “GAY”?

What is it with queers always wanting to prance around in public nude? And what’s up with cities allowing them too? I want to see what would happen if a group wanted to organize a heteroseexual pride parade and demanded to be allowed to march nude. I don’t actually want to see it!

Nudity is the least of what goes on at these events. There are ample pictures around at what happens, if your stomach is strong.

Simulated sex acts, masturbation, urination, and defecation, sometimes on each other, are common behavior. Do a search on the Fulsom Street Fair in SF.

Homosexuality is, at its core, an addiction to sex (actually to the chemicals that the brain releases in response to sexual stimulation).

Everything else gays and lesbians may say about it is whitewash.
