Oh, what a tangled web we weave when at first we start to deceive.” –Sir Walter Scott 

DALLAS, TX – Busted! Finally, drag queens (aka biological males) are admitting to nudity and vulgarity at drag shows in bars, but they continue to deny any sexually explicit body movements at other venues with children in the audience.  

This is me sighing, shaking my head, and rolling my eyes. 

With all the viral video clips from Libs of TikTok and undercover journalists, the radical LGBTQ advocates, the militant trans activists, and the predatory drag queens can no longer deny-deny-deny.

Cherilyn Matthews (aka biological male drag queen) admitted, “Adult entertainment would be anything 18 and up to view which would include vulgar language, which would include nudity,” in a story for WESH2.  

Really? For example, at an event in Dallas, Texas, drag queens accepted cash tips from young children while engaging in sexually suggestive body movements in front of a neon sign that read, “IT’S NOT GONNA LICK ITSELF.”  

Matthews, did you happen to read that news report? 

Drag queen Kitty Demure’s lecture to woke parents resurfaced on social media where the performer says in no uncertain terms that “kids should stay the hell away from their shows,” according to a 2022 article in Townhall. “It’s an adult thing. There’s a lot of nudity, drugs, and sex backstage. This is why the venue is a nightclub for adults. That’s why this is raising eyebrows. It’s not that the performers are gay. That battle is dead. It’s the fact that these shows are meant for adults, not kids.” 

But of course, the DQ story is ever-changing.  

Drag queen story time and a family-friendly drag queen pageant is not the same as a drag performance at a bar that you have to be 18 or older to get in,” Carlos Guillermo-Smith, a former Democratic Orlando lawmaker and a current member at Equality Florida, said. 

Let’s review:

Mom blasts school board over drag show for high schoolers while wearing the same outfit the drag queen wore, reported an article in The Daily Wire. “Does this outfit make you turn your head? Does this outfit seem appropriate for anybody here to see? This is what the man dressed like in front of our kids.” Watch on rumble.  

Pennsylvania school hosts drag show for kids without parent’s permission, a 2022 article in Townhall reported, “Leaked photos and videos show several provocatively dressed drag queens flaunting across the school’s stage performing lewd dance moves in front of a group of minors.”   

A child drag performer who was mentored by an accused child sex offender will perform at an Oregon bar. An eleven-year-old child who performs drag under the name Vanellope will perform at Old Nick’s bar in Eugene, Oregon, according to a 2022 article in Breitbart.   

In a 2022 article, The Daily Caller reported, a Pennsylvania drag queen, Brice Patric Ryschon Williams “was charged with 25 counts of child pornography, according to a criminal docket…Video footage shared on Instagram from 2017 appears to show Williams dancing explicitly for children. In July, a local Pennsylvania news outlet reported that Williams would be working with an organization that provides a “safe space” for gay and transgender children of color.” 

Judge who headed ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ sponsor arrested on child porn charges, according to a 2021 Fox News Report. 

The Houston Public Library in Texas admitted that one of its “Drag Queen Storytime”  storytellers was a registered child sex offender. The library said in a statement it “failed to complete a background check as required,” leading to a man posing as a drag queen, according to a 2019 article in Newsweek. 

At least three Texas sex offenders have participated in “Drag Queen Story Time” — programs that seek to teach children about gender fluidity and give them “queer” role models through reading events in public libraries, reports Metro Voice News in 2019.  

Did Guillermo-Smith overlook the aforementioned articles?  

Hmmm. I would refer arrogant activists to review the earlier video clips of men dressed like strippers in public libraries, schools, restaurants, parks, bingo halls, festivals, and other venues with children. Evidence does not lie. Fact do not lie.  

My question: Do these DQ advocates actually believe we are that stupid when the proof is contained in the forever video clips and photos. 

After the city of Melbourne allowed these adult entertainers–men dressed as strippers–to perform in the middle of the street, I committed to act,” Florida Republican Rep. Randy Fine said. “Adult entertainment and children are mutually exclusive and will not happen in Florida once this bill passes.” 

What men? What strippers? What street? What city? It’s just a figment of your imagination. That never happened. You must be mistaken.  

Such gaslighting from a crew of fibbers. It would be laughable if not for the seriousness of indoctrinating, grooming, and sexualizing young children. 

Our brunch shows and our story times are meant to help educate children and make them have a good experience and expose them to creativity,” said drag queen Angelique Young. “They’re not meant to expose them to nudity or things like that,” noted the news story. 

Once again, take another gander at the video clips and photographs. And read comments from the eye-witnesses in articles, commentaries, blogs, and on social media platforms. Or peruse my well-researched columns. 

Is everybody else lying?  

Oh, the drag queens are just victims of responsible citizens that want to protect minors from half-naked men – that really mean no harm – girls just wanna have fun. 

There are cross-dressing men with fetishes that like to hangout around children for the so-called purpose of entertainment, reading and teaching diversity. A hyper-sexualized male disguised as a female while acting like a fool is nefariously using LGBTQ activists as pawns and mouthpieces. That’s a common tactic used by perverts, predators, and pedophiles. And protectors of children know it.   

In a recent statement, Equality Florida surmised: 

“The bill is unnecessary, as Florida law already prohibits exposing minors to shows considered sexually explicit or harmful. It is also inconsistent with existing law that gives parents the right to determine the suitability of content in television, movies, and video games. Drag art is not adult entertainment, and attempts to equate the two by right-wing politicians are about nothing more than stoking manufactured hysteria to feed the political ambitions of the governor. 

Ultimately, we should respect the fundamental rights of parents to decide what is or is not appropriate for their own children. And we should not be asking them to co-parent with Ron DeSantis.” 

Interesting response by Equality Florida. Have they watched the bawdy and brassy video clips?  

Not even parents have a right to expose their children to sexually explicit adult entertainment.  

Purposely exposing a child to adult sexuality is considered a form of child sexual abuse, whether or not a child is touched. Non-touching behaviors can be just as upsetting and emotionally harmful to a child as some touching behaviors. Non-touching behaviors that are considered to be child sexual abuse include: 

  • Showing pornography to a child. 
  • Exposing a person’s genitals to a child, or asking children to expose themselves. 
  • Asking a child to interact sexually with someone else. 
  • Online enticement of a minor for sexual purposes. 
  • Photographing a child in sexual poses. 
  • Exposing a child to sexual acts (including masturbation) either in person or through digital, computer or video images. 
  • Watching a child undress or use the bathroom, often without the child’s knowledge (known as voyeurism).” 

And if it’s only about Gov. DeSantis and his political career as Equality Florida alleges – then why are other sensible citizens concerned and speaking out.  

Shoot the messenger when the message won’t hold water.  

Why should I be surprised when radicals with the woke mind virus sacrifice children for their own perceived and misguided civil rights agendas?  

“Drag, a beloved art form and at the core of LGBTQIA+ culture, is suddenly being criminalized, flashing back to the early 1900s. Our collective and eclectic history is being further whitewashed,” lamented a recent opinion piece in Watermark Online. Blah. Blah. Blah. 

Drag art form is not being criminalized, but men that prey upon children for sexual gratification is. And since when is a man twerking in skin-tight, outlandish female clothing considered art?  

When drag queens stayed in bars and clubs, away from children, nobody was proposing or passing legislation.  

But there’s more… 

Predatory drag queens know they’re busted. So, the next manipulation tactic is to put on grandma clothes (no cleavage showing), flat shoes (high-heels are sexy), and tone down the wig and makeup (a gloopy face scares babies and toddlers). And pretend they just want to shower children with diversity and fun. Hogwash.  

It’s not about homophobia, transphobia, hate and misinformation as the DQ soldiers accuse their opponents in order to upset the LBGTQ community by resorting to falsehoods. It’s about protecting kids.  

Moreover, children don’t need to engage with DQ’s for ‘artistic expression’ as there are myriad opportunities for creativity without being hypersexualized by grown men pretending to be women. 

Children would much rather play and experience fun with other children – just ask a child development expert. Oh, that would be me.
