Ford Fischer's News2Share crew, with a sharp eye and careful detachment, captures a long year of Americans arguing furiously
The identification of citizens standing up for children as "right wing" is simply wrong-headed in every respect. Children should be shielded from adult themed entertainment. If you took a child to a strip club, not many people would defend that and child services would view it dimly. Can the drag performers elicit the purpose of exposing children to drag show entertainment?
Drag is a perverted attack on women, full stop. Women's stereotypic characteristics and manners are satirized in drag, in a cruel and vicious manner. Some like it, mostly perverts. What is unacceptable, completely, is allowing children under the age of 21 into the events. Pictures of 6 YO girls putting money into the underwear of adult men with fake breasts should lead to arrest and conviction for sexual contact, not the celebration of Democratic alphabet activists.
I'm trying to picture the 2023 me somehow being able to talk to the 2010 me as I explain that, by 2022, people will be fighting in the streets over drag queens.
I also can't imagine myself as a child being excited to sit through a slog of poorly executed show tunes performed by men in pancake makeup while all I really wanted to do at that age was read comics & play baseball. Heck, I'm an adult and I can't make it through more than a minute or two of Ru Paul's Drag Race & that's only the commercial. The actual show looks about as appealing as every other shitty reality game show on TV.
It's hard for me not to see this as little more than the antics of lefty parents who are far more interested in virtue signalling their "open mindedness" on TikTok & Facebook & Tweeter & Instagram than they're interested in entertaining their kids. Their kids are little more than their parent's social justice props.
But hey, the world is full of asshole parents. Not exactly news.
Parents never seem to learn that forcing an ideology of their children often leads to them eventually adopting the opposite ideology.
As far as grooming goes, given the fact the FBI has prosecuted no elite Epstein clients and probably never will, I'd say that groomers are here to stay. Groomers seem to have very friendly ears in the corridors of power.
It all makes me glad that my youngest is 18 & 6'5" and long past the being groomed stage.
Maybe, with a little luck, the left wing can also remove the stigma around cannibalism & coprophagia.
While it may not be a brave new world we're heading into it will be a very, very weird one.
Ugh. When did protecting children become a "right wing" thing? Learn to identify a Fascist! Let kids be kids.
I've never understood the appeal of drag. If you like women, fine, go to their performances. If you like men, go to theirs. If you like hermaphrodytes, seek them out. Otherwise, a man dressed as a woman calling himself "she" and "a girl" while lip synching for dollar bills must, from my perspective, be an acquired taste. I don't want advice on how to acquire it.
Nonsense. Nothing good comes from prepubescent children put before men dressed as grotesque female characters reading stories laced with perverted sexual innuendo or performing vulgar stripteases (with the kids often encouraged to "join in" on stage).
This is only important in the context of elites fostering these battles as 1. A pretense of disagreement between the parties when they work for the same imperial puppeteers and 2. These battles take all eyes off the elites who are plundering our vast public wealth for empire and endless war.
Street "fighting" ain't what it used to be.
Anyway, I support the opposition to trans/drag-queen grooming. It's sexual abuse, and none of the trans/gay lobby's idiotic arguments can change that demonstrated fact. They've pushed normal people too far, as the video demonstrates. And the intelligentsia that advances their ideology, whether any front-line, cross-dressing freak is aware of it or not, is determined to "grind glitter into the carpet" and "subvert heteronormativity." They admit it openly. "We are coming for your children" is not the vaporing of a lone psycho, but the motto of a social movement designed to normalize the notion that there is a real sexual alternative to male and female. There isn't.
The days of trans-sexuals simply living their lives privately and quietly are over. The mental condition has been made into another "movement of liberation" that, with the encouragement of "drag queens" and other true believers, has attracted the confused adolescent floundering for a place in our atomized world.
Run-of-the-mill transsexuals should divorce themselves from this disgusting, demonic political movement if they're really interested in living their lives privately and unmolested.
This is one more step towards mainstreaming the idea that pedophile is just a normal condition and is ok. If you keep messing with people's children and the divisions in our country will become irreparable chasms.
This is up to the parents to choose how to raise their children. I wouldn’t take my child or grandchildren to such an event. I wouldn’t go myself either because I find it unappealing. But that’s me. Someone else might make another choice for themselves or their children.
I viscerally dislike Drag Queen Story Hours but as long as attendees/parents know what they’re getting into, its on them. They’ll have to deal with any unwanted results. Protests and violence just make for entrenchment and martyrdom.
Now when it comes to gender-affirming care to children without knowledge of parents? That’s my line. When it comes to men receiving awards for being “women” of the year, yeah that is worth protesting. This, not so much.
Drag shows in libraries, a reflection of most manufactured self-righteous faux hysteria today, as intended by the puppet masters controlling it, smokescreens the actual American horror. We are no longer a literate people. And, the willful destruction of literacy is the point. The ability to read and write (cursive is no longer taught in most public schools) has long been a poor childs' forward path and the American library provided the gateway. (A pause to remember the "dowdy" little librarians who were the first to stand up against Patriot Act surveillance state thugs attempting to silence knowledge of their prying into the reading habits of private citizens.) Like ancient citizens in Egypt who witnessed the loss of the Library at Alexandria, Americans are witnessing the political slow burn of access to knowledge and the expanded destruction of free speech and thought. The American library system should be, but obviously is not, inviolable.
No one cares if you're a man who digs wearing panties or if you are a lesbian heavily invested in rubber goods. Sleep with who you want. Stick it where you want to. That battle was fought and won decades back. Ignoring that Marxist 'woke' has politicized and weaponized modern sexuality is another thing altogether. And who pays Marxist 'woke'? Totalitarian finance. Only a fool would pretend there is no ongoing totalitarian capture and subversion of American literature and education. It is the right think P.C. prelude to the insertion of the D.E.I. commissariat into our library system. Protestors on both sides are pawns. The IMF/WEF/CCP Davos boys don't give a flying f'k. --- But, they are f'king you.
Chaos serves totalitarian finance. American citizens are being beaten emotionally senseless and the violation of human reason is the bludgeon. We're being forced into a mal conversation whose outcome guarantees an inhuman, sterile and dystopian future. Drag queens push transgenderism. Feminist plead toxic masculinity and want Hemingway banned. BLM wants TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD banned as racist. And, both the far right and the left have a burn list long as your arm. They're all a bought and paid for airball distraction meant to confuse, distract and run cover for the looters. Hence, the intentional manufacture and ascent of the illiterate American.--- Free your mind and your ass will follow.
Recent victory by subscription journalism and the ascent of a new truth based American national dialogue can be seen in the Twitter file revelations. (Where would Musk have turned?)The new Republican House now has enough political strength to demand an accountable Speaker not totally compromised and subservient to K Street. On the home front, people actually concerned about the survival of the American library system might actually visit one. For the first time in a long time there's light in the room.---Remember what the dormouse said.
At last! A blood pressure raising, 'battlefield' issue I can afford to ignore completely.
Is anyone still confused why Putin wants a buffer from the West?
Identity politics has killed the ethic of being an American citizen. The feeling of unity is sadly gone. We have been divided and conquered. Division and hatred rule.
I'm not a fan of child beauty contest either. Let children be children. There's no place for children in these environments, it's similar in its lack of decency to the children wearing face makes while the adults do not, or hey, giving them a vaccine for a sickness that only truly harmed adults. Now where are they? Broken hearted. Our society is symbolicly representing its underlying sickness. Heartless, selfish, indifferent, cowardly. Drag shows for kids, shouldn't be an issue in a healthy community. It's another symptom. They shouldn't have unfettered access to all the internet offers either, but they do. The only way I've found is to try to teach mine as best I can to filter, discern, be picky, be able to listen to intuition. If it feels wrong, walk or run away. Curiosity killed the cat. I don't know if it's worked, but one of them talk to me about lots of the things they are exposed to. The other one, not so much, but he cleans his room regularly and gets good grades, no nagging needed, so it's all I can ask for. I'm sorry for the younger children. I'm a generation xer, and I'm all too familiar with parents making it all about themselves, latchkey kid and all. Those same ideals have formed the world we have inherited now. For better or worse, it's all we can do. Prepare them. What makes someone want to take a child to a strip show, regardless of gender or confusion of gender or switching of gender or WHATEVER? I don't know really. It's not much worse than a child beauty contest though, if I'm being honest.
This is idiotic. I couldn’t quite understand how drag and drag queen story hour became such touchstone in the culture and transgender debate. Traditionally, drag has very little to do with sex or the current philosophies undergirding transgenderism. In fact, if the right wing hadn’t started attacking drag queens, I can guarantee that the woke left wing would have thrown them under the bus. Drag contradicts the gender essentialism pushed by the transgender ideologues, and drag generally looks like mocking and appropriation of the female gender. It isn’t woke. It’s basically gay men playing princess dress up. Therefore, it makes a certain amount of sense that small children would think it was fun to have a story read to them by a dude in a silly costume. It isn’t sexual grooming. Drag isn’t about traditionally about sex. It isn’t stripping unless it is mocking strippers. There might be outliers, but I haven’t seen examples. I certainly see how conservatives might find it offensive if they are adamant about traditional gender roles, but the actual specialization in drag is fairly tame compared to the general culture in the US.
After watching the video, I realize the fight has nothing to do with drag. Neither side seems to care or understand what drag is. This just another way for people to separate into tribes and fight.
