Regular readers will know that I have no sympathy, time or compassion for the so-called "drag queens" who are trying to corrupt, pollute, warp and twist our kids with their so-called "story hours". I have a simple solution to their presence. Granted, it would be illegal to employ it, but I don't think it's immoral.
However . . .
Big Country Expat has some interesting thoughts on the original drag queen phenomenon, and how it was very different to what we're seeing today. He quotes a friend of his who was an "old school" drag queen, who is utterly repelled by what it's become today.
Granted, gay guy ... he told me "BC, it's bad enough that you have the crazy right wing haters out there who don't understand (due to a lack of education) but that the Left-Wing ******* Crazies have taken over, and are using OUR art to push a sick, divisive agenda that is going to hurt children. That is not what drag is about, and if I was performing, in a bar? and saw a kid? I'd refuse to perform... Drag isn't supposed to be for kids! (bold mine). They're threatening me BECAUSE I refuse to bow to them and their plan..."
There's much more at the link. For a different perspective, I recommend clicking over there and reading it in full. I still won't have anything to do with that "scene", but I'll concede that some drag queens appear to be somewhat more civilized (and less vicious, nasty and brutish) than others.
