Op-Ed: No Drag Queens in Schools – Parents Must Stand Up and Speak Out to Protect Kids

Drag Queen Story

PORTSMOUTH, OH – “When, Exactly, Did Drag Queens in Schools Become a Thing?” asks Charles Cooke in a 2022 commentary in The National Review. Cooke continues: “Seriously: How? How did we reach the point at which drag queens in schools became a topic that is routinely debated in domestic American politics? How did drag queens get into schools in the first place? Why does anyone think it’s acceptable — let alone crucial — to keep them there? Why has one of the two major political parties in America decided that this a hill to die on? How did this happen? In the last six months, I have heard more about drag queens in schools than I have heard about the solvency of Medicare. Why?” 

Why? How? Who? When? Where? – I want to know as well. Why would any adult male (heterosexual, homosexual, or trans) want to dress in seductive female clothing with face painted in caked on makeup, and sing/giggle with sexualized dance movements in front of children in a school under the pretense of reading a book? Do drag queens (DQs) actually believe they are that talented or that special or do they think they are entitled? Why do classrooms need adult entertainers?  

Guess what DQs? Adolescents would much rather have fun with other adolescents – not with adult men in drag. Kids learn more about diversity by being with kids of various ethnicities – not with adult men in drag. Children learn about inclusivity by daily interacts with other children – not with adult men in drag. Kids learn about artistic expression by being in clubs, groups, and organizations with other kids – not with adult men in drag. Younger children first learn about the joys of reading while setting on the laps of parents – not on the laps of adult men in drag.  

There is no war against drag queens. They can jerk and twerk until the cows come home – in adult spaces. The war is against lewd, crude, and rude drag queens – in kid spaces.

Keep Drag Queens Out of Schools 

DQs are not necessary to early childhood, middle school, or high school education. DQs need to stay in their own lane and stay out of schools and stop the indoctrination and sexualization of kids.  

Parents and community members need to attend school board meetings and call for termination of employed adults in positions that allow adult males (drag queens) to indoctrinate, sexualize, and push an agenda of gender ideology in public or private schools.  

Contact your governor, attorney general, state representatives, Department of Education, and professional educators and childcare association/organizations/agencies in your county and state of residence. Contact local principals, pastors, and police officers. 

USA. Contact national associations/organizations to voice your concerns about DQs in schools and libraries via social media, letters, or phone calls.
