In our post-revolutionary world, the entire month of June is now dedicated to massive parades, festivals, and corporate genuflection at the altar of an expanding panoply of sexual diversity. The identity game is booming, and everyone wants in on it. Of course, Pride parades are also fun for the whole family — even Canada’s state broadcaster says that children will see adult nudity at the festivities, but this is a good discussion opportunity (in case you wanted to discuss genitals and where people put them with your kids). Adult entertainment is now for kids.
As such, the animated series Blue’s Clues and You got in on the game with an animated knock-off of RuPaul’s Drag Race, featuring a drag queen singing to children about the many wonders of Pride Parades to the tune of “The Ants Go Marching.” Children are introduced to non-binary animals, transgender beavers, families with two moms, and other floats featuring various exotic aspects of the LGBT movement. This was aired on Nickelodeon, just in case you thought that children’s cartoons were free of indoctrination.
Parents will have to explain terms like “ace,” “queer,” “trans,” “bi,” and “pan,” and also a wide range of flags (because every identity has to have one, what with all the parades, etc.). What parent doesn’t want to explain bisexuality to their children? It’s 2021, and it’s also June.
