Maybe I'm missing something (it wouldn't be the first time...) but let me ask the question anyway.

Missy Girl, and a few others, are upset because the "rules were changed at the last minute", and nobody told them until afterwards.

First thing I noticed in all the coverage: All the gay families were wearing rainbow leis as a sign of solidarity.

Second thing I noticed in all of the articles (and blog posts in the gay blogosphere) I read: No one said that ONLY the gay families were given a "late" start time. Just EVERYONE that was waiting in line was given a "late" start time.

About the second thing: This may or may not be a counter strike against the ORGANIZED showing of gay families. But you will never get anyone in the know to admit it.

About the first thing: The minute a participant family decided to wear the rainbow lei, it became a political event, and no longer "about the family".

If you all wanted was for your kids to participate, maybe you should have NOT worn the lei, not been so vocal about your organizational skills, and just blended in with the other "families" that were there to participate.

Maybe then, the White House wouldn't have changed the rules, and you would have been able to have your children roll the eggs along side the straight family's children without incident.

But, what would be the fun in that, right?

All good points. I saw some bitchy, straight women talking shit about 'the gays' drawing attention to themselves by wearing the leis, yet there they stood, with their stupid, pink easter bunny ears on. Good points, and good post.
