In the whole run-up surrounding the push for same-sex marriage and LGBT “rights,” some predicted that the normalization of homosexuality would open the door to other deviant practices. Usually at the top of the list of things being warned against was pedophilia. But we were told over and over that this was offensive, and just an invalid “slippery slope” argument.
Well, it’s been just four years since so-called same-sex marriage was instituted by the Supreme Court, and it’s now clear that the slope was a lot more slippery than ever advertised.
Consider, for example, the growing, nationwide trend of “drag queen story hours” at public libraries. To be clear, these events are exactly what they sound like. Confused men, dressed in flamboyant makeup and women’s clothing, reading often propagandistic story books to young children. Last weekend, Lansdale Public Library outside of Philadelphia hosted such an event, where a drag queen who goes by the stage name “Annie Christ”—I’m not kidding—read to dozens of elementary school-aged children while in full costume.
This has become an annual event in Lansdale, usually featuring performers who appear at gay night clubs, but drawing fewer and fewer protests from shocked parents and pastors in the community.
Later this month, a Greenville, South Carolina public library plans to hold its own drag queen story hour, and similar events have taken place in Houston, Detroit, and even here in Colorado Springs. The American Library Association gives its full approval, claiming that such events foster “a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive society.”
Now let me be clear, drag queen story hour is not the worst news of children being sexualized in our culture. Last month, Huck Magazine featured a 10-year-old Canadian boy named Nemis, who is one of the first so-called “child drag queens.” For the article, this young boy was photographed in full makeup and a dress alongside and touching a nearly naked man in high heels.
Nemis’ mother is not only fine with the photo, she promotes her son’s hyper-sexualization, insisting that he’s just having fun.
A few months earlier, in December, another boy, an 11-year-old named Desmond, reportedly performed a suggestive dance at a New York City-based gay bar while adult men in the audience threw dollar bills at him.
