In recent years, drag queens have been grooming and sexualizing children across the country during inappropriate events such as drag shows or “Drag Queen Story Hour.” Now that it’s Pride Month, the disturbing trend has become even more prevalent.
Drag ideology attempts to dismantle traditional sexual ethics and redefine gender.
Drag is most often performed by gay men who dress as women, create an on-stage persona, and put on highly sexualized performances. Unfortunately, children have been the greatest victims of this growing trend.
In Dallas, leftists hosted a “Drag your kid to pride” drag show that featured sexually explicit dancing in front of children. Even the Smithsonian American Art Museum hosted a “Pride Family Day” drag queen show for children ages three and older.
Drag queens and drag ideology are also victimizing children in Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Brewers hosted a drag queen show before one of their games last week. The show featured mature sexual themes promoted by gender ideology and should have, at the very least, been for adults only. However, it was held at a family venue where children were present.
Unfortunately, this is not the only case of drag influence in Wisconsin recently. A drag queen performance was also scheduled to take place at a farmers’ market in Fort Atkinson.
Thankfully, parents spoke out and flooded the Fort Atkinson Farmers’ Market Facebook page with complaints. As a result, the event was canceled, but then due to other pressure was reinstated.
The good news is that there is power in numbers and parents really do have the ability to make change and protect their children by speaking out. It’s vital that they remain aware of what is going on their community and act boldly when necessary.
The bad news is that drag and LGBTQ+ ideology will only continue to target children and attempt to feed them lies about the human person and human sexuality.
Drag ideology tries to instill children with the false idea that true fulfillment is achieved by discovering and expressing one’s true inner “self.” Rather than teaching children the importance of cultivating virtue and becoming who God has called them to be, the left is encouraging them to engage in unrestrained self-expression and indulge in selfish desires. This is deeply harmful to children.
Further, drag ideology attempts to sexualize children and normalize gender dysphoria. It imposes radical ideas about gender and sexuality, such as the notion that one’s identity is found in his or her sexuality. These ideas are meant to confuse and manipulate children.
This is a large part of the reason that a growing number of children are suffering from gender dysphoria. The incessant leftist propaganda is feeding them deranged ideas that are bound to leave them confused.
The Devil is working hard to influence our children. Let’s not forget that our voice can make a difference and like the parents in Fort Atkinson we should not hesitate to condemn any attempt to propagandize children with harmful ideas.
“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6).
