I cam understand the sentiment if it is as described by Freyja, but I am inclined to disagree with the position. Having children celebrate Pride is no worse than having them celebrate Christmas, Remembrance Day or Eid. They have yet to decide for themselves if they want to support Christianity, veterans or Islam, so the parents decide for them. It is part of raising kids that you teach them to be good peoples to the best of your ability, which means showing them traditions and celebrations of what the parents believe. Once they are older they should absolutely have the right to decide their own beliefs, but until then it is a parents job to help them learn values.
"I think the sentiment behind this claim is that children growing up in LGBT ally homes shouldn't be forced to celebrate Pride. It seems that the person posing the argument feels that children who grow up going to Pride are being deprived of their right to oppose LGBT rights."
- But once they hit 18 they should stop going. It's like church to me, you don't have to once you are an adult. You'll face judgement but if it is not for you.
- Just because you go to Pride doesn't mean you have to fully support. Some protest pride at the event. Of course most don't and I am sorry if that person is being forced to
Thanks for the sentiment! It's good to know where it was coming from.

nobody should be forced into liking something, but at the same time, those who oppose something should be mindful and respectful to what they oppose.
*its not like
I agree. Who is? It's like its madatory for you to go to the Pride festival. Just don't attack them in the streets.
who has ever been forced to praise homosexuality? no one is forced to like it or to say they like it. they are not however allowed to interfere with other peoples rights.
