Public display indeed vulgar


Re: Kwantlen professor calls Pride Parade ‘vulgar,’ Aug. 4.

Some say this is a form of bigotry.

Not so. I agree with Shinder Purewal that the Vancouver Pride Parade is vulgar. I am surprised it has been allowed to show so much nudity and sexuality and nothing has been done to stop it.

If any other group were to show only a fraction of this indecency in their parade, they would have been stopped immediately.

It seems minority groups often are able to do things that the rest of society are not able to legally do.

Another example is of a certain group often playing the ‘racism card’ in order to get what they want. They wish to be treated as equals, as they should be.

Unfortunately, there are some who feel their rights should go beyond that of the general public.
