Perhaps if the hottie from the TD Bank had dropped his green Speedo® maybe poor old “Right as Rain” wouldn’t have been so appalled.
What’s rather amusing about the Right One’s “awful” outrage (amongst other things) is the claim that “the first Google search for Pride 2009 pictures yielded me these shocking examples.” Oh really? Just out of curiosity, I Googled “Pride 2009” (and several variations) yet came up with nothing close to the “shocking” pictures in question. Now, why would some crotchety old windbag go out of her way to dig up pictures of frumpy men with tattoos parading in the buff simply in order to get all indignantly righteous about it? Oh yeah, it’s the Bloggin’ Tories… I forgot — that’s their whole pathetic shtick, isn’t it? Family values (circa 1896) and all that hypocritical rot.
Let’s look at these pictures again! [Must we? — ed.] How can any responsible person take their children to this parade? There is nothing wrong with the naked human body per say [sic], but I don’t won’t [sic] my children to be exposed to a stranger’s naked body.
A cursory examination of the pictures in question however shows no children whatsoever. In fact (something I suspect “Right as Rain” has little acquaintance with), there’s no indication at all that the pictures were even taken on the “Family Pride” days when some children might actually be expected to be present.
It is time to take back our country, if you don’t want filth like the above displayed for all to see during a parade then you had better donate your time or money to a party that will fight to prevent this sort of despicable display, a party that will fight for real honest to god family values.
Um, maybe if one doesn’t want to be exposed to “filth” of that kind, one shouldn’t go actively looking for it and then pruriently display it on one’s blog “for all to see”… Just a thought.
