Sweden's Paying Drag Queens A Lot of Money to Read to Kids
Yes, this is in Sweden, so no, it's not yet happening here. But how long before American liberals import the practice of shelling out some serious fat stacks to drag queens like coo-coo liberals have embraced Greta Thunberg? San Francisco just put that little lady's glowering face on a building's outer wall. So you know, I might be paranoid but I'm not actually.
Last week the MUMS Cultural Association in Stockholm was awarded 1,710,500 Swedish kronor — or $177,000 in U.S. dollars — to develop “creative fairy tales” performed in front of a young audience through its Among Dragons and Drag Queens project.
“In addition to authoring new stories, the project will develop an accessible story hour model based on the needs and wishes of the target group in order for the experience to be as good and accessible as possible,” claims the Swedish Inheritance Fund, which provided the grant, in a press release. “[...] The project will present its fairy tales at libraries, but also in other contexts.”
No one has a problem with playing dress up for fairy tales. Let the children channel their inner princesses, knights, kings, queens, witches, wizards and bridge trolls. The problem of associating fairy tales with men in fishnet stockings twerking, that shouldn't need further explanation. But here we are.
Now maybe there's a popular children's fantasy book series out there featuring Tomisina the Buldge, a courageous princess knight of the double rounded table (shaped like nutsacks), who, with lucious locks waving in the breeze, slays dragons and misgendering fools. In which case, sure, Amanduh flashing his crotch may be inline with the story. Princess knights unsheath their crotch swords like Arthur drew Excalibur.
However, last I checked, fairytales keep it pretty classic, even modern day fantasy series for adults tend to keep the characters either male of female. Even if some of those characters are a little sexually fluid. But not too many in drag.
In which case, why the hell does anyone need Georgina Peckerwood performing the elctric slide to inspire children to read? It's never made sense to me, this desire to put grown men in sexually weird outfits in front of children to promote books.
There’s no evidence that drag events are turning children transgender or causing them to be sexually abused.
Yet. There's no evidence YET. However:
- UK: Drag Queen Busted as a Pedophile in Undercover Sting
- ANOTHER Child Sex Offender Discovered at 'Drag Queen Story Time'
- Library Admits Registered Sex Offender Participated in Drag Queen Storytime
- Drag Queen at Library Drag Queen Story Time Appears to Flash Children
- WATCH: Drag Queen Strips for Kids at Drag Queen Story Time. How Does This Promote Reading?
So pardon us "right wing websites" that have a problem with men dressed as clownish hookers reading to kids. I know, I know, we're just such close-minded hicks. How dare we.
