A journalist at the Washington Post recently got a ton of criticism after writing something deeply disturbing.
She claimed that children should go to Pride marches, and witness sexually suggestive displays.
She also admitted she’d taken her own children, and was proud of it.
Lauren Rowello, a current contributor for The Washington Post, wrote an article where she defended the practice of massively gratuitous displays of a sexual nature at Pride, also known as “kink.” Her article faced major backlash across social media after she dragged her children to a Pride parade.National File
This is weird and sinister, to say the least.
Here’s her Tweet about it.
If this is what she thinks of when considering how to treat children, then something is very wrong in her thought processes.
Kink positivity really isn’t something children need to be learning about.
Nor anybody else for that matter, yet Rowello is acting like its some kind of essential learning…
“When our children grew tired of marching, we plopped onto a nearby curb. Just as we got settled, our elementary-schooler pointed in the direction of oncoming floats, raising an eyebrow at a bare-chested man in dark sunglasses whose black suspenders clipped into a leather thong. The man paused to be spanked playfully by a partner with a flog,” Rowello wrote.
“What are they doing?” my curious kid asked as our toddler cheered them on. The pair was the first of a few dozen kinksters who danced down the street, laughing together as they twirled their whips and batons, some leading companions by leashes.National File
Does this seem like something kids should be exposed to?
The answer is obvious, but Rowello was happy to admit she wants her kids to love this stuff.
Yes, sexual displays on the streets are apparently fine because it’s people celebrating who they are…
Doesn’t that make alarm bells ring for these people?
Can they not see this is a slippery slope?
It doesn’t, and they can’t.
So be careful about who your children associate with.
Someone like Rowello could be one of their school teachers.
