There's no such thing as a family-friendly drag show
A few weeks ago I started noticing that the Left was ramping up their grooming efforts in the form of “family-friendly” drag shows open to audiences of all ages. Of course, sane people know that the words “family-friendly” and “drag” do not go together. After seeing a dramatic rise in the number of drag events targeting kids, I decided it was time to create a thread documenting them. I wanted to show just how common, pervasive, and sick this stuff is.
The thread documented about 40 examples of “family-friendly” drag shows hosted in schools, libraries, gay bars, and other venues across the country. While most of the drag queens in the thread were adults performing for audiences that included children, there were a few child drag queens as well. You read that read right. In some of these clips, children were dressed in drag and performing for cash tips from adults.
Last I checked, the thread had received over 4M impressions. Then the reports from angry leftists started rolling in. They were not outraged that children were being subject to provocative performances from gay men dressed as women. They were outraged that I was drawing attention to it. The thread was eventually banned in Germany for the crime of reposting drag show flyers and videos.
Meanwhile, the drag events were taking place, with one particularly outrageous show in Dallas making national news.
Last night, I received a notice that I was locked out of my account for “abuse and harassment” and Twitter demanded I delete my mega drag thread post.
I committed the great crime of noticing.
I noticed that drag queens were being used to do exactly as I wrote in the beginning of the thread: confuse, corrupt, and sexualize kids. It’s the furthest thing from innocent and it has nothing to do with inclusion or acceptance.
Twitter thinks it’s abuse to document drag shows. I think it’s abuse for drag shows to be taking place in front of kids. But don’t take my word for it — look at these images and decide for yourself.
The good news:
Two child drag events have been canceled as a result of raising awareness to this phenomenon. One in Apex, North Carolina and another in Jasper, Indiana. A Texas legislator said he will introduce a bill which would ban drag shows in front of minors while Governor DeSantis has expressed interest in cracking down on drag for kids, too.
Where we go from here:
It’s obvious that I hit a nerve. That only means we have to dig deeper into this and continue to expose it. Which is exactly what I intend to do.
