Seattle Pride video: Mama Tits takes on protestors

We’ve all had those days where you’re at Seattle Pride, in a killer blue dress, and some homophobe selectively misquotes the Bible to ruin your day, right?

Well drag queen Mama Tits takes one anti-gay protestor to task, seriously undermining the fundamentalist’s understanding of his own religious text. She points out that wearing mixed fabrics is stated as an abomination in Leviticus (the part of the Bible that also apparently denouncing homosexuality), as is sleeping with a woman who is on her period.

Following Mama Tits’ reading of the protestor, attendees at the Parade formed a wall of love to stop the mixed-up fundamentalists.

Speaking to Seattle Gay Scene, Mama Tits said:

‘I saw them coming up the road pre-Parade and looked at Sylvia and DonnaTella and said, “Ladies, let’s make a wall!” Before I knew it, I was standing tits to nose with the leader guy on the megaphone. It felt like I had the strength of all the people who had ever been hurt by these people standing right behind be me giving me power! I was almost in auto-pilot mode from my days as a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence. I planted myself in his path and wouldn’t move. When he walked around me, I got back in front of him again and again. I stared him in the eyes and could see the pain in his eyes, I could see he was scared and he should have been. He tried to hit me with his sign, but like Bianca Del Rio says “Not Today, Satan!”‘

She continued, ‘I pushed his sign away from my face and hair, because you DO NOT TOUCH my hair. And, it was all I could do to NOT get violent, but I didn’t because once that happens, we all lose. They tried to surround me in an intimidation tactic, but let’s face it, I’m fucking HUGE and it didn’t work at all! The police came to me and asked to let them pass, and told me not to let them get me upset. I told the cops I wasn’t upset, but I WILL defend myself when assaulted, and they needed to remove them from our Parade. I then walked over and grabbed my mic and started to get the crowd involved. I wanted them to make so much joyful noise to drown out the hate… and, boy did they ever! The crowd made the walls rattle down on 4th and Pine!

‘Shortly after I heard him quoting Leviticus, I just spouted back all the other parts he was leaving out to show how much of a hypocrite he was. It is always interesting how religious whack jobs misinterpret EVERYTHING in the Bible and bend it to their will to create HATE, when all they are doing is showing their ignorance. I yelled, “You have NO POWER here, be gone before someone drops a house on YOU!” Once they were escorted off the parade route, I noticed how much it had affected me. I was trembling and on the verge of tears, because when people blindly hate and preach it in public like these people do, they have no regard for the people lives they are effecting.

‘People take their lives because of HATE like this, people get KILLED because of HATE like this. I just want it all to stop! If the HATE mongers would put down their signs and open their minds and REPENT for their judgments, maybe then they too could find joy and happiness and be part of the fun, instead of being part of the Hell.’
