I would let my kid go because my parents pretty much never shielded me from anything based on my age. And I turned out okay.............right guys
But that said, I totally understand why someone might object. Gays are a sexual minority and as such tend to be more sexually expressive. I never went to the castro when i was in san francisco but there are definitely parts of the villiage that I wouldn't want my kids walking through.............not because they would be irrepairably damaged or anything but because there are like.......whips and chain stores there and I don't feel like explaining that shit.
I wonder where the took the kids to study white people.
