Chicago Dyke March: resilience = scary Jewish Star?

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.
