I've been to Mardi Gras a few times. I never found it anything but a huge celebration comprised by many people, and of many elements.<quoted text>As if I would be going to the Sydney Gay Mardi Gras? I would rather weed my garden, even if it is not weedy, because it would be something I would much rather be doing. Or ironing, perhaps.
They are showing these on TV and promoting them all the time, and put photos in the papers. Would you like me to stop watching TV and reading the papers too?
I'm not doubting what you say you've seen on or at your local media outlets.
I've never seen anything in any of the media outlets here that I found that was inappropriate.
I dunno, maybe U.S media is more restrictive than there.
