An online magazine that claims to provide advice and other resources for parents recently published an article listing all the great "benefits" of taking young children to LBGTQ+ Pride parades and events, despite warning in the opening paragraph that "sights that may be new to kids, like public nudity and kink" are par for the rainbow-colored course.

"Parades and the Pride festivals that follow are noisy and crowded. They’re filled with sights that may be new to kids, like public nudity and kink. Not to mention that Pride parades aren’t the most sober of places. So is it appropriate to take your young kids to Pride?" the Fatherly.com article began.

"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."

The article went on to quote Jenifer McGuire, an associate professor at the University of Minnesota, who said her kids learned to "expect nudity and other surprises" after attending numerous "Pride celebrations across the world."

“They just had to learn to laugh and enjoy things. Like there were these Beanie Babies with giant penises on them,” McGuire said. “For a fourth- and fifth-grade kid, that's super funny.”

On a recent episode of BlazeTV's "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat reacted to the shocking article, adding his own assertion that, no, you absolutely should not take your young kids to an LGBTQ+ Pride celebration.
