Chicago Dyke March: resilience = scary Jewish Star?

Happy Pride month to those who celebrate.  I am sincerely glad to hear people feel safe enough to march openly and the world is becoming more inclusive? In Chicago not so much. There are two Pride groups: Chicago Pride and the Chicago Dyke march.  The Dyke March found a Pride flag with a Jewish Star scary.  The Dyke march is described here

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.

This inclusive social justice oriented march sent three women away. Because a Jewish star on a pride flag is scary? Here is an article from Haaretz.

The Chicago-based LGBTQ newspaper Windy City Times quoted a Dyke March collective member as saying the rainbow flag with the Star of David in the middle “made people feel unsafe,” and that the march was “pro-Palestinian” and “anti-Zionist.”

Feel unsafe? Pro Palestinian? Because social justice? You mean these Palestinians? Amnesty International describes life for women in Palestine as not exactly female friendly:

Women and girls continued to face discrimination in law and in practice, and were inadequately protected against sexual and other violence, including so-called “honour” killings. Women and girls were reported to have been killed by male relatives in “honour” killings.

As a woman, Honor Killings would scare me more than a star on a pride flag.  But I am no social justice warrior.  Thank you to all my teachers and family and faith groups for making this so.

Still not quite getting how the above flag makes people feel unsafe.

And a disclaimer: this kind of stupidity is not something the lesbians and gay men I know  would find appropriate, acceptable or frankly representative of their community.  Although the march is put on by a fringe group, it has plenty of air time.

The Chicago Dyke March is billed as an “anti-racist, anti-violent, volunteer-led, grassroots mobilization and celebration of dyke, queer, bisexual, and transgender resilience,” according to its Twitter account.

I thought inclusive meant include lots of people.  Throwing parade growers out because Jewish Stars are scary does not seem resilient or inclusive. And this flag has never been there, right? The cupcake’s twitter account is locked down so nobody can see their resilient tweets. Isn’t that special.

Laurel Grauer, a member of the Jewish LGBTQ organization A Wider Bridge, told the 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.”

And celebrating ones identity is part of pride right?

“They were telling me to leave because my flag was a trigger to people that they found offensive,” she added.

Trigger meaning violent?  Isn’t that special.

Another participant asked to leave because of a Jewish flag was Eleanor Shoshany-Anderson. “The Dyke March is supposed to be intersectional. I don’t know why my identity is excluded from that. I felt that, as a Jew, I am not welcome here,” she told the Windy City Times.

Dear YouTube guy, the flag in question was a Pride flag with a white Jewish Star. Not the Israeli flag which looks like this:

Cupcakes scared of disagreement:

So because the cupcakes are triggered this means a Jewish Star carried by a lesbian is unwelcome at the Dyke March. Commenters on Twitter did not find that amusing.

Now you know ladies and gentlemen. Social Justice is basically fascism in a new smellier suit.

    I do love it when they attack themselves from within, and show that they are actually anything but inclusive…

      I wonder if the three participants will realize that they might just want to rethink who they hang out with. And if Pride Chicago might want to cut ties with these lovely hard left creepers.

    You’d think so wouldn’t you Gail? But i’m gonna guess they’ll be like Juan Williams on Fox.. he dared to stray from the party line a few years ago, he lost his job at NPR, and was ostracized by them, yet he still defends the left constantly
