'Tell me more about how #pride is just about tolerance and not sexual exploitation. This is disgusting.'
Christina Aguilera wore a medley of over-the-top raunchy costumes at this year’s Pride celebration in Los Angeles, the crowning jewel of which was a green, Hulk-like number complete with a giant green "strap-on."
Rolling Stone magazine (and many other outlets) lauded the pop star's performance at “LA Pride in the Park,” calling it "iconic," “beautiful,” and everything "the gays" ever wanted.
Several posts on Twitter of Aguilera's Pride in the Park performance are being censored with a label warning, " The following media includes potentially sensitive content." And according to Libs of TikTok, even Aguilera had discretion enough to censor her own photo in a post on Instagram.
\u201cShe censored the picture on her Instagram account. But kids can come watch this in person.\u201d— Libs of TikTok (@Libs of TikTok) 1655140496
But the venue itself seems to think parents should bring the kids. The "LA! Pride" website says, "LA Pride in the Park has no age minimum for the music performance." Oh, and apparently kids under 5 get in free.
\u201c@JennaEllisEsq Desperate attempt 2 stay relevant... when SHOCK value is a last resort. If an artist wants the music 2 move U... distracting them with a strap-on is NOT the way.\u201d— Jenna Ellis (@Jenna Ellis) 1655153295

\u201cHave you ever in your life been to a \u201cfamily-friendly\u201d parade that had strap-on penises and simulated sex acts? \n\nWhy are these vulgarities exclusive to the LGBT community?\u201d— Sara Gonzales (@Sara Gonzales) 1655167302
Still think you want to see this spectacle? Okay, click here at your own risk, but don't say we didn't warn you.
Last week, BlazeTV host Pat Gray talked about an article in "Fatherly," an online magazine that claims to provide advice and other resources for parents, which touted all the great "benefits" of taking young children to LBGTQ+ Pride parades and events, despite a warning in the opening paragraph of "sights that may be new to kids, like public nudity and kink." "Considering the benefits for all families — including seeing other LGBTQ+ families like yours, or showing up as an ally if your family members are straight and cisgender — the answer is absolutely [bring the kids to Pride celebrations]," the article recommended.
One parent even said her kids learned to “laugh and enjoy things. Like there were these Beanie Babies with giant penises on them ... for a fourth- and fifth-grade kid, that's super funny.”
Pat Gray did not find the idea to be "super funny" at all.
