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.
