You know you and Jeff should get together and compare bigotries. make it a real shindig out of it.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say "after kids". Is every activity in which the whole family involved "after kids"?

When I was 4 my mom dressed me up as a woman for Halloween. I remember how much fun she was having putting makeup on my face. I survived just fine and had fun trick-or-treating.

Laura calling anyone a bigot is projection and nothing more.

This isn't child abuse. If these kids parents are good with this then I am too.

Is drag any worse than beauty pageants for preteen girls?

Yeah, just like how Monty Python were after the adults. Look at how that turned out! FTA:

"These kids are so brave. To be able to share their gifts and their talents," said Elizabeth Mitchell. "I am a Christian and because I am a mother of a gay child and because my granddaughter is performing in this today. There is a lot of emotion and a lot of conflict for me."

Christians are after our kids! Stop them!

I wish comrades Boazo and Jeffry would show this amount of concern for the little brown kids that are thrown into cages and actually dying under horrendous conditions.

Shows how out of touch with reality they and their kind really are.

Does Laura believe women shouldn't have the right to control their own bodies?

Does Laura believe rape babies are gifts from God?

No. That's conservatives.

Seems you have Laura confused with... yourself.

Before anyone declares they are transgender, they should go through some standarized psychological counseling and therapy.

If and only when they can make an informed decision would it be wise to declare they are a different gender.

Children this age are not capable of making such an informed decision and no adult should be encouraging them.

That is child abuse.

What does dressing in drag have to do with whether someone is transgender?

Clown,

Your comment about beauty pageants frankly is something that concerns me too.

Personally I do question the mental stability of parents who push girls into this and it is teaching these girls values that may cause them more harm than good as adults if it isn't balanced with a strong emphasis on education.

BillJohnson isn't good at this kind of stuff.
He will tell you he's gay, and he will tell you he's exclusively had hetero sex with the same woman for the past 35 years.

That is disturbing
I don't know why some parents dress up their little JonBenet's like streetwalkers.
But it makes it slightly less surprising when they get murdered like streetwalkers.

Jesus. Just leave them alone. They aren't hurting you or anyone else. An event like this shouldn't need any kind of police presence, let alone a "heavy" one. Get over yourselves.

You're intolerant of anybody who disagrees with you, Laura.

TERF is just a pejorative used to avoid dealing with issues that feminists raise as it pertains to being forced to share spaces like locker rooms and rape recovery centers with trans women and men who claim to be trans women. Also, trans women competing in women's sports. There has yet to be any kind of conclusive scientific study that I've been able to find that shows testosterone alone completely accounts for the physical advantages men have over women. Heck, as trans women are starting to be allowed to compete in women's sports it's looking more and more like lowered testosterone levels do no not level the playing field. Find a way to truly make the playing field fair and I'll gladly support trans women participating in women's sports.

You're nasty when it comes to these issues and your misogyny is on full display.

A couple of months ago Banner described you as one of the biggest misogynists on this site. His post garnered 13 NW flags, some of which were from lefties.

Woah, the protesters have the temerity to show their God Hates signs.

What is hateful is that misshapen font on their Christian ISIS propaganda.

Many of those protesters seem fairly young and programmed to be so hateful despite the harmless nature of cross-dressing. Are they really believing these children are exploited? I only see more religious intolerance and bigotry at what they determine as a target.

You gentleman rattled loose a memory - Does anyone remember the Jonbenet Ramsey case?

The focus was on the mystery of her disappearance and all of the implications of that.

The smaller story, but still reported on at the time, was how cut-throat the child beauty pageants were and how poorly the young models tended to be treated, including by their parents.

I am not suggesting that is the case with these children's drag shows because this is the first I've been aware that such an industry even exists. But it's important to keep in mind what was learned about the girls' beauty pageants IMO as drag pageants are carried out.

#26 | Posted by JeffJ at 2019-07-08 11:19 PM | Reply

I don't see this as being cutthroat, because I don't think there's any money in it.

I see this as being not a whole lot different than Halloween, like the earlier JeffJ did.

I agree with 4 and 5 more than 26, by a wide margin.

I apologize for my imprecise articulation. Johnson and Clown were talking about young girl beauty pageants and I unintentionally drew equivalence to these drag pageants. I didn't intend to draw equivalence between the two as I have no evidence that there is a cutthroat equivalence.

I think it's important to keep that in the back of our minds, but I agree with you that the lack of money in this reduces the likelihood of similar abuses, by a lot.

The overt sexualization of children is against the law in liberal democracies like Britain, France and Germany. If you put on a kid drag show in those countries, you will go to jail, along with the parents of the children and most of the audience.

Drag Queen Story Time UK

And there are more chapters internationally. Germany, Sweden, Japan, Australia...

Nobody's gone to jail. It's not sexualization of children.
