Senate Republicans Fight Back Against the Sexual Perversion Children Are Being Exposed To


PHOENIX, ARIZONA— In an effort to protect innocent children from adults who aim to expose them to inappropriate sexual behavior, Arizona Senate Republicans are joining several other states by working on legislation that would prohibit minors from attending drag shows.


Earlier this month, local media outlets reported the Heard Museum hosted a drag show as part of "Pride Night." Children were observed in attendance, as the show was touted as being "family-friendly." Performers were seen dressed in scantily clad attire while carrying out provocative dance moves that left little to the imagination as youngsters watched.


Meanwhile, Tucson Magnet High School, part of the Tucson Unified School District, hosted a drag show in May. The effort was spearheaded by two counselors who lead the LGBTQ+ student club. One of those counselors was subsequently arrested after evidence revealed she was having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student.


Policies of "nondiscrimination regarding gender expression and sexual orientation" are sending a message to society that we should disregard morals and values just to normalize these unscientific, broad, ill-defined and subjective terms, which set a dangerous precedent for our children that are too young to be exposed to such concepts.


"One of the reasons why we were elected as lawmakers by our constituents was to protect family values. If men want to dress as women, and if adults want to participate in watching these hyper-sexualized performances, they have the freedom to do so. It crosses the line when kids are subjected to these drag shows. This ignorance by public and private sectors promoting this behavior sends a message of complete and utter perversion that can have detrimental impacts on the social and emotional development of our children. We will be damned if we won't fight like hell to protect the most innocent from these horrifying and disturbing trends that are spreading across the nation now that extremist Democrats are currently in control of our federal government."

If half of the performers at the Heard Museum were not men in women's clothing then that must mean that the other half were men dressed in women's clothing. I can't say one way or the other but if there is a "drag show" with men dressing up like women then I think that should be made clear prior to the show so people with children may decide to seek entertainment elsewhere. What does the Catholic Church covering up sex scandals have anythng to do with parents trying to prevent their children from being exposed to "drag shows"?

Drag is not exclusively men cross-dressing. It's an insanely broad and diverse term to describe any type of artistic performance art that, typically, goes hand-in-hand with the LGBT+ community. Drag can be men in men's clothes, men in women's clothes, women in men's clothes, women in women's clothes, and every other conceivable combination of costume, gender expression, and performance. A parent taking their child to an all-ages drag show is 99% of the time knowledgeable of what drag and drag shows entail, so this legislation the AZ Republicans want to pass is not preventing kids from "accidentally" seeing drag performers. What it does entail is one specific ideological group forcing their views of parenting and childhood onto others that they…

I'd love to see how you conservatives try to define "drag" and "drag shows" because I guarantee you, half the performers at the Heard Museum were not men in women's clothing. You're trying to ban something you know nothing about, and it is laughable (to say the least). If you don't want children to see drag or any type of theatrical, artistic performance, don't bring them to these events. This is another example of Republicans whining about excessive government control and then trying to push an unenforceable law. Check your hypocrisy next time you try to discriminate.
