Opponents of the controversial Boobs on Bikes parade have suggested Palmerston North parents keep their children home on Friday when the event hits town as school lets out. Lobby group Family First NZ said the parade was scheduled to be at the city’s central square at the same time school finished, exposing children to topless porn stars as they travelled home.
“We would advise parents to do everything they can to avoid children being exposed to this parade, and if necessary, they should keep their children at home for the day,” Family First NZ national director Bob McCoskrie said. It was disappointing the parade was even able to happen in such a public venue, he said.
