Heartbreaking photo: Young girl covers her eyes as nude men walk past during Gay Pride Parade
Warning: Some people may find the images in this blog post disturbing. Viewer discretion advised.
Earlier this week, our managing editor Steve Jalsevac published a slideshow with his photos from the 2011 Toronto Gay Pride Parade. Many of the photos were shocking. But one commenter pointed out a detail in one photo that many people probably missed.
The photo says it all: Naked men marching in Toronto’s Pride parade, showcasing what supporters cheer on as the advancement of “gay rights” and “sexual liberation.” The naked men march past men, women, and yes even children. Everyone is encouraged to celebrate “diversity.”
Oh, but what’s this? A young girl with blond hair in a turquoise teeshirt knows that something is wrong.
The girl, maybe 8 or 9, doesn’t want to see naked men displaying their genitals. She feels assaulted by what she sees. She implicitly understands that her innocence is threatened by what she sees. She knows something wrong is happening.
She does the most natural thing: She hides her face in her hand to protect herself. She doesn't want to see the genitals of naked men.
Who will save the children?
