(TRR) Libraries, schools, and bookstores across America are hosting “Drag Queen Story Hour Events.” Drag queens read stories to children about “equality” and “self-acceptance.” According to the official Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) website, this program “captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood…”
Huh. It’s almost as if the goal of this program is to deliberately confuse children about their gender.
DQSH is being defended under the guise of inclusivity, despite drag being incredibly sexual in nature. Not to mention that there have been multiple instances of libraries not properly vetting drag queens.
In August 2019, a drag queen named “Miss Kitty Litter” read for the Austin Public Library system. He had been previously convicted of prostitution. In July 2019, a drag queen at Multnomah County Library allowed children to “lay” on him. In April 2019, a public library in Houston, Texas publicly apologized after letting a high risk convicted sex offender assist during story hour.
In October 2019, a drag queen performer exposed himself while reading to children at a public library in Minnesota. He reportedly “strode in suggestively past the children, sitting down in a chair before several preschool-aged girls with his legs spread wide…”
In March 2020, a Milwaukee County children’s court judge was was arrested for tentative charges of possession of child pornography. He was CEO of the LGBTQ “Cream foundation” that promoted Drag Queen Story Hour.
Even drag queens have spoken out against this child abuse. In January 2020, Drag Queen Kitty Demure chastised parents who take their children to these events. Demure said “I have absolutely no idea why you would want [drag queens] to influence your child. Would you want a stripper or porn star to influence your child?”
Fair point. The bar is extremely low, but credit to Kitty Demure for having spoken out against this.
It is no surprise that Drag Queen Story Hour attracts sexual predators. As Ian Haworth from The Daily Wire notes, “… they provide near unfettered access to children in an environment which not only allows but celebrates sexual and sexualized behavior.” Children across the country are being exposed to a hypersexual environment for the purposes of “inclusion.”
This includes children as young as four or five years old. Their brains are malleable and the cultural elites who support DQSH know this. Drag Queen Story Hour’s own website says that these events capture “the gender fluidity of childhood.” They are not even hiding their perverse agenda anymore. Hypersexualizing children and deliberately confusing them about their gender is the entire point.
It is not just happening in libraries, however. A taxpayer-funded school in Brooklyn, NY subjected first graders to Drag Queen Story Hour. In an email to parents the principal stated, “In an effort to continue to strengthen and enhance inclusiveness and diversity in our school, the first grade will be taking part in ‘Drag Queen Story Hour!’”
There are those left-wing buzzwords again. Degeneracy is masqueraded as diversity and inclusiveness. If you are opposed to the sexualization of children then that is because you are against diversity. The fact that opposition to DQSH is even remotely controversial tells you all you need to know about the state of Western culture.
