|Gay chickens in the coop?|
But the entire effect of the place was sweet with lots of beautiful flowers and mini spots (a troll house, for example) just the right size for children to play and imagine.
And the children who were there clearly enjoyed all the spots designed for their enjoyment including the rice paddy where several were dabbling in the water. One little boy assured me there were fish. He was trying to catch them.
|The troll was not at home.|
When I went over to admire the chickens in their pens, however, there it was -- the rainbow "inclusive" sign on the chicken house.
So now I'm scratching my head.
Is the sign there to let all the little homosexual toddlers know they will be safe in the garden?
Or is it meant to assure the gay adults they have nothing to fear because there are no little two-foot homophobes running along the paths who may attack them?
On the other hand maybe it was on the chicken house to assure the hens they have nothing to fear from the transgender roosters.
Whatever the message, we can all breathe easier tonight knowing that the Children's Garden in Ithaca, New York is an "inclusive" environment watched over by Gaia the giant turtle who no doubt meditates walking around the labyrinth after everyone goes home. And now let us all sing a hymn of praise to Mother Earth.
