Judge Throws Out Texas Ban On Drag Acts, Calls It Unconstitutional
The left is not backing down as it continues its fight to destroy childhood innocence as they attempt to take an entire generation of kids and turn them into drag queens.
A federal judge ruled that Texas' new law limiting public drag performances was an unconstitutional restriction on speech.
“Not all people will like or condone certain performances,” U.S. District Judge David Hittner wrote. “This is no different than a person’s opinion on certain comedy or genres of music, but that alone does not strip First Amendment protection.”
In other words, the judge ruled that a drag show isn't sexually explicit.
Hittner said that a “large amount of constitutionally-protected conduct” would have fallen under the new restrictions, like cheerleading.
I just cannot comprehend how this judge just compared a drag show to cheerleading. What a clown.
The bill attempted to ban the performance of “sexually oriented” shows in front of minors.
Hittner called the law “substantially overbroad” and “unconstitutionally vague.”
“But even if SB 12 were not unconstitutionally vague, it would still fail due to it being an impermissible prior restraint on speech,” the ruling states.
Performers who violate the law would have been charged with a Class A misdemeanor and punished with a $4,000 fine or one year in jail. And businesses caught hosting drag shows were expected to be fined up to $10,000.
The measure would have criminalized sexual conduct that “appeals to the prurient interest in sex” in front of a minor or on public property. The definition of sexual conduct was expanded to add “sexual gesticulations using accessories or prosthetics that exaggerate male or female sexual characteristics.”
I really do not see what is ‘vague’ about this definition. It clearly defines what is and is not allowed. I am also not aware of any free speech right that allows one to expose children to sexually explicit things.
Texas state Sen. Bryan Hughes said he will continue to fight for the bill.
"Surely we can agree that children should be protected from sexually explicit performances. That’s what Senate Bill 12 is about. This is a common sense and completely constitutional law, and we look forward to defending it all the way to the Supreme Court if that’s what it takes," Hughes said.
It is definitely constitutional to protect children from these things. And no, a drag show is not ‘open to interpretation.’ It clearly is men, dressing up as highly sexualized versions of women. Texas has a duty to protect children from this insanity.
There is no reason grown men should dress up in sexualized costumes to perform in front of children. And anyone who defends that is either incredibly ignorant or abhorrently evil.
