Another Christmas, another controversy. According to a report in The Huffington Post, a small town in Alabama is up in arms after community organizers booked an all-male, gender-bending dancing group to perform in their annual Christmas parade.
Known as the Prancing Elites, the group was reportedly invited to take part in the Semmes, Ala. Christmas parade, with the individuals that hired the group having an awareness about their genre of performance.
“I said we’re all over 21 and we’re guys,” troupe captain Kentrell Collins states in the Fox 10 News report. “She was so excited. She was like I didn’t know they had any groups like that in Mobile.”
And then came the complaints: “I was outraged and appalled. I never expect anything like this at the Semmes Christmas parade,” local Alabama mother Claudia Davis told Fox 10 News. “If they were gonna put this kind of activity in the parade, they should have notified the people of Semmes so that we had a choice whether we wanted out children to attend and see something like that.”
My Gosh, she’s right. Get them home to watch violent movies and play violent video games ASAP. Now THAT’S the Christmas spirit.
