Trying to clean up its image the FDNY halted the production of its annual firefighters calendar once a racy “Guys Gone Wild” video of a nude fireman featured in their calendar surfaced on the internet.
Apparently the ethical standards are a little different on the west coast where four firefighters were ordered to participate in Gay Pride Parade and be subjected to sexual harassment. One of the firefighters said he endured more stress during the parade than in his years of “finding bodies in burning buildings” and “traffic accidents with kids.”
The firefighters plan to sue the city and have recently filed a complaint that contains some pretty explicit language describing what they endured and the treatment they received from ogling homosexuals and parade attendees.
It will be interesting to see what kind of response comes out of this, whether it be an acknowledgement of the lewdness at Gay Pride parades, or a condemnation against the firefighters and their supporters for being bigots in need of tolerance training.
