“Sounds cruel, but life can be that. What next? You see if we begin making exceptions for one person we have precedent for the next guy who wants to keep something worse, bigger, smellier, noisier maybe that chickens. Sorry little guy this is a good less on to all that laws and rules and regulations protect everybody in the end. Or, move somewhere where chickens are legal eh?”

swartzge on Dec 10, 2013 at 11:47:27

“This is a silly comment. Life is cruel and we should accept that at times... this is true when one is healthy and mentally and emotionally capable, but this boy does not fall into that category. You lack any form of understanding and empathy. The parents had to get a special permit to have the chickens so the argument the door is open for "bigger smellier, noisier..." animals is silly.”

“I think little children are harmed when their valued are reduced to the lowest common denominator.   Why not teach our children to aspire to morality, and if they are gay or trans, teach them to respect themselves enough not to make a public specter of themselves.  Worse, the gay lesbian bi culture sets themselves up for laughter instead of striving for genuine acceptance.”

“It's not that it's provocative, it's that it's another push for a society that knows no bounds except "whatever floats your boat" with no concerns or concessions to people who feel differently. It's all a sham, a sort of subliminal advertisement for sexual perversions. We are like frogs plunged into cool water and the heat goes up so gradually, and we get used to everything in such small increments that when we're boiled we don't even know it. I enjoyed the dancing and costumes but not the message which was not provocative at all....nope.”

Hrant George on Dec 2, 2013 at 12:24:37

“Whatever floats your boat but does not harm someone else nor cost anything to others. Theft, corruption, abuse of government, corporate purchase of government, these are far more concerning matters that actually have direct influence on our lives.”

“Exactly what sexual "perversions" were advertised / on display? Drag in theatre is as old as the ancient Greeks; Shakespeare's plays were performed by all-male casts ... women weren't allowed on stage in his time.

And, BTW, we aren't going to stop being gays, lesbians, etc. just because it offends YOU or YOUR religion.”

“No my friend, it only gets worse. Nothing is private any longer. There is no pride in flaunting one's sexuality regardless of what it is. It's a sign of low self esteem when one's sexuality is the first and foremost thing one must show to the world. Sorry for you.”

Goddess Athena on Dec 1, 2013 at 20:41:38

“Tell me, do you "flaunt your sexuality" by holding hands with your spouse or have any other display of affection in public? Because by doing those kinds of things, you are letting the world know that you prefer the company of someone of the opposite gender. People like you are part of the reason that many gay couples are scared to hold hands in public, or to be open about their relationships. They are certainly private about the private and personal aspects of their lives and relationships. From the way some people are acting, you'd think people were having sex on the parade float.

"Kinky Boots" is based on a true story of a man who works with a drag queen to make a better pair of boots and save his father's company and the jobs of his employees. It's about acceptance and not judging people based on preconceived notions and stereotypes. The number performed in the Macy's Parade was not sexual, and the costumes worn by the performers covered far more than most people wear to the beach.”

“There are some people who think public statements about sexuality are not appropriate. If people want this sort of thing (in fun or otherwise) they can subscribe to it on their own time and dollars. Persons who take children to a Christmas parade should not have to answer questions about lifestyles as part of the experience. Sorry, but it's not a matter of conservative or liberal, it's a matter of decency. Decency is not derived from religion or politics, it precedes both.”

Sue Roediger on Dec 1, 2013 at 16:55:14

“The show is not really about sexuality. Some who dress as women to perform are gay, others are straight. The show Kinky Boots is about a young (straight) man who inherits a shoe factory from his father. The business is failing ... he meets and is befriended by a man who cross dresses, who is annoyed by the fact that any high heeled shoes he buys cannot support his size and weight. Together the create shoes (and yes BOOTS) that hold up. One thing leads to another and a new market niche is opened. The business booms and the two men grow to respect each other.........as friends. NO KINKY SEX ..... only a little hetero attraction. OY people -- relax. If a kids sees this and asks - you just tell them "some people like to dress up" If the kids says "ew" you just say " well I guess it's is not for you" If the kids says "oh I like it" .......... You can say "I guess - maybe -you be a performer, someday". Where is the problem?”

“Wearing a costume in a play isn't parading sexuality any more than cheerleaders on the side of the field is parading sexuality. Do you object to the cheerleaders and dancers who put on costumes as well? You object to the costume because it is "inappropriate for children" but do you also object to the thousand other costumes that were worn that day? How hard it is to tell you're child "they're wearing a costume because it is part of the play that they are in"”
