Parental Confrontation at Pride Pittsburgh
By Allison Says on June 14, 2012
A woman attends Pittsburgh Pride with her family and finds herself in a heated conversation:
"And then there is us: a man, a woman, and their child. And I was attacked. Not physically, but verbally. I was told that I am a terrible parent for bringing my son to a place full of such 'abominations' and 'terrible people.' I was told that a good parent would never be there. That letting my son be around these people would harm him. My blood pressure rose, I was shaking, I told them that they were the disgusting ones. It took everything in my power to not say more. To not get into it. It wasn’t worth it, and I couldn’t do that to my oblivious child."
