''Chicago Dyke parade'' tells Lesbian Jews to leave so as not to offend Palestinians

Controversy arises at Chicago Dyke March

Chicago, IL - The 21st annual Chicago Dyke March, described as more inclusive, more social justice-oriented than Chicago's annual Pride Parade, took place in the Little Village neighborhood on Saturday, June 24.

But the parade was met with controversy when collective members carrying rainbow pride flags with a Star of David center were told to leave because the flags "made people feel unsafe" and that the Dyke March was a "anti-Zionist, pro-Palestinian" space, reported Windy City Times.

"It was a flag from my congregation which celebrates my queer, Jewish identity which I have done for over a decade marching in the Dyke March with the same flag," Laurel Grauer, one of the expelled Jewish participants, told the publication.

Windy City Times publisher Tracy Baim posted the story on Facebook. A majority of those responding appear to be in support of those asked to leave the march.

"Anti-semitism is everywhere. I'm not surprised at all," LGBT historian Sukie de la Croix commented. "Nobody is more intolerant of differing opinions than the gay community."

1. OK, let me get this STRAIGHT.

 

Dykes want to bar reasonably safe Jews, in support of rabid mad dog muzz palis?

That does not compute...

3. I point this out all the time.

Same sex marriage and adoption of children to homosexual parents was legal in Israel long before it was legal in the US. And both are still illegal in the rest of the middle east.

5. I'd feel a lot less safe around Palestinians than Jews

Which culture enshrines those who blow themselves up murdering as many innocent people as possible?
