NBC Defends LGBT Chant We-re Coming for Your Children as Fine and Normal

NBC News defended LGBT parade chant, “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming for your children,” at a recent PRIDE march, arguing it was fine and normal to do so.

The media giant claimed such chants were nothing new and were meant simply to “take the sting out” of proven allegations of grooming against LGBT activists.

The songs have been sung for years, which NBC News appears to imply the LGBT chant “we’re coming for your children is ok.

“The “coming for your children” chant has been used for years at Pride events, according to longtime march attendees and gay rights activists, who said it’s one of many provocative expressions used to regain control of slurs against LGBTQ people,” NBC reported.

The article’s author, Tyler Kingkade, also highlights chants such as “Kill, kill, kill, we’re coming to kill the mayor,” “God is a lesbian,” and “[t]en percent is not enough: Groom! Groom! Groom!” as acceptable provocative chants.

However, Kingkade’s claims were slapped with a Twitter Community Note,’ which stated, “Coming for your children” is not a historical part of Pride. The chant appears to originate from the San Francisco Gay Men’s Choir singing a song with this title 2 years ago, in 2021. This article is thus a misrepresentation of Pride’s history.”

Watch

Meanwhile, some LGBTQ activists claim the chant was “taken out of context.”

“It’s all just words,” Brian Griffin, the original organizer of the New York City drag queen parade, told NBC News.

“It’s all presented to fulfill their worst stereotypes of us.”

As The New York Post reported, Karla Jay, the first female chair of New York’s Gay Liberation Front, told NBC News the “We’re coming for your children” chant was an attempt to mock criticism of the LGBTQ community.

“The person who said this in a march isn’t the person who came up with this idea — the person in the march is saying, ‘Go ahead, call me this; why do I care?'” Jay said.

“The person is trying to destigmatize this and claim their own power. You can’t blame the victims here, and that’s what the right wing is doing.”

Hucklefaery Ken, the organizer for this year’s New York City drag queen march, said the chant was a “bad joke that is being used to serve the interests of parasitic, predatory political propaganda and policy.”

“It’s really scary to us,” said Fussy Lo Mein, a drag performer, said. “It doesn’t represent everybody — it represents that individual. I thought it was a dumb idea, and I started chanting on top of it with alternate verses.”
