The sexualization of children has begun

By Jonathon Van Maren

Remember when LGBT activists used to get outraged at the insinuation that they would support the sexualization of children? Yeah, those were the good old days. These days, child drag queens are in, and everyone is loudly insisting that this is not horrifyingly creepy—and some activists are even gutsy enough to claim that drag is an utterly asexual performance (and who are you going to believe, them or your lying eyes?) Previous generations of drag queens would be stunned to hear this, but it is necessary to propagate this temporary lie in order to normalize this new manifestation of sexual freedom—the ugly corruption of innocent children. From The Metro:

A nine year-old boy has made his debut as his drag queen alter-ego at a pride celebration. Vincent Garcia appeared as DunkaShay Monroe at Los Angeles Pride in June, with the full support of his mother Elizabeth Leyva. DunkaShay donned a bronze sequinned dress, green wig, silver sneakers and rainbow-striped socks for the occasion after being inspired by TV drag contest RuPaul’s Drag Race. Her name was inspired by a song Vincent’s father sang to him as a child, and a tribute to silver screen icon Marilyn Monroe. And Elizabeth, 33, says she hopes she can set an example to other parents to be supportive of their children’s identity. She explained: ‘My message to other parents is not to be afraid of letting your children show you who they are.

‘People dismiss children a lot and tell them they don’t know what they want and are too young to understand – but they have their own minds, just like everyone else. ‘The worst thing you can do is shut them down and be small-minded. ‘At the end of the day, you should love and support your children 100 per cent, regardless of whether they want to be a doctor, a cop or a drag queen.’ Elizabeth said that Vincent began experimenting with her makeup and walking around their home in stilettos aged just two. She says that a few years later, Vincent came to her to say he thought he might be gay.

Vincent, of course, is still a pre-pubescent child—but his mother assured reporters that she took care that her son, who showed up to LA Pride in heavy makeup and a cocktail dress, was dressing in “age-appropriate” costumes. This, of course, is a mother who thought RuPaul’s Drag Race was “age-appropriate” television viewing for a child. As you can see, the goalposts are moving very rapidly, borne on the shoulders of activists who are racing away from any sense of normalcy and towards a culture where everyone—even children—are sexualized—and the only sinners are the prudes who disapprove of those feeding their children into the rainbow machine.


For anyone interested, my book on The Culture War, which analyzes the journey our culture has taken from the way it was to the way it is and examines the Sexual Revolution, hook-up culture, the rise of the porn plague, abortion, commodity culture, euthanasia, and the gay rights movement, is available for sale here.

    I am LGBTQ and I am AGAINST the specialization of children. I think it’s disgusting and children should be able to be children… I was born in the 80s, when kids were allowed to be kids.

      Thanks, Jay. I know that a great many LGBTQ are against this. I talk to them a lot. It’s even more horrifying to those who were abused themselves as kids. I have some LGBTQ friends who find it really triggering to see kids used and violated and groomed. Believe me, I don’t lump everyone together and make blanket statements about all of them, no matter who they are. I have stated emphatically to my LGBTQ friends that this is an issue that should alarm anyone, gay or straight, because this particular drive to sexualize kids and normalize pedophilia is trying to piggyback on the LGBTQ bandwagon, and that is not going to give that bandwagon good publicity at all. We need more voices like yours so that the media narrative that this is an LGBTQ thing is not the only voice being heard.

      It’s not mine or your place to judge people’s lifestyle. You are just as guilty by judging them and condemning them to hell. Honey I hate to tell you a lot of people that think they’re going to make ain’t going to. And as far as Sodom and Gomorrah You should really look into that it just wasn’t about homosexuality that whole city was corrupt with everything from prostitution to thieves to murders. Christian people need to stop Judging and worry about your own sins! This is why people will not come into our churches. As far as these poor kids that’s sad. Let kids be kids

        A lot of people like to twist Matthew7:1, and say “don’t judge” while completely forgetting the context of the verse and the other verses in scripture instructing is to judge righteously, humbly, to judge all things, sin, false teachers, works of darkness, liars, pretenders, etc. we know no ones perfect, we all have flaws. We are all sinners. We as followers of our risen Savior must be born again and repent to be saved. We are to encourage one another with scripture so we do not falter, but stay on the straight and narrow path.
        John 7:24, 1 Corinthians 2:15-16, 1 Corinthians 5:3, 12, 1 Corinthians 6:5, 1 Corinthians 14:29, 2 Corinthians 11:1-4, Ephesians 5:11, 2 Peter 2, 1 John 4:1, Revelations 2:2, 1 John 2:18-20.

        It’s ok to judge and criticize someone else’ lifestyle; just because you live a certain way doesn’t mean you can silence people who dislike it and it doesn’t mean that you can silence those who don’t agree; we all have our own values and opinions; I don’t have to approve of or agree with anyone’s lifestyle choices; simply having an opinion and stating what I think is not the same as hurting other people; everyone is right in their own eyes. However, I also don’t believe in imposing my values on others and I don’t tell other people what to do or how to live and I expect that people around me had better not impose their values on me and they need t respect my right to live how I choose. People don’t like being told what to do and I won’t allow someone to tell me how to live or what to do because I’m a grown woman.

        Now, I’m not a Christian and I’m not religious, as far as adults go, I believe that everyone has a right to do their own thing so long as they don’t violate human rights or they don’t harm others in the process. With that said, it’s wrong for children to be participate in drag queen culture; many drag queen shows and activities are meant to be sexualized forms of artistic expression; I have nothing against adults participating in drag queen culture, but it’s wrong for children to be engaging in sexualized drag queen activities and it’s wrong for children to dress in sexualized ways; certain things are only for adults; porn is only for adults and sexualized drag queen cultural activities should only be for adults and never for children.
