Elementary school drag shows for toddlers is basically about soft-clay positive imprinting — acclimating little kids to the idea that gay or trans culture is cool and that homophobia is unacceptable, etc. But the school-board officials approving this stuff are obviously sexualizing grade-school atmospheres, and this is alarming if not horrifying to not just red-state parents but sensible blues.
Where is the upside in agitating parents over their kids being exposed to flagrantly sexual behavior?
Be honest: If you were running a school board in some rural or suburban community, would any of this stuff give you pause? Or would you just say “fine!” and wave it all through?
This is beyond crazy. I thought it was a bunch of Dame Ednas. Instead: this. When will gay organizations say no to this? Why the lockstep defense of the indefensible? The damage these extremists and crazies are doing to gay rights is incalculable. https://t.co/hp7BCwIHhZ
