A bar in Oregon is promoting an upcoming drag event that features an 11-year-old child in drag.
This is child abuse, there is no other word for it. The 11-year-old child who's being paraded in creepy sexualized clothing is being abused by her parents, by the bar, by the community, and by the state.
I want to focus on the community aspect of abuse. Right now, our country is at a point where thousands of children are being physically mutilated, where drag for kids is rampant, where early exposure to hard-core porn is normal, and where society is teetering on full-blown acceptance of pedophilia.
We hope that this is a transitory time and that our government will reverse course and enact laws to protect our children.
But we can't wait. It is abuse by a community to allow such attrocities to take place unimpeded. It's neglect to turn a blind eye, and a frightening measurement of how sick society has become when an 11-year-old child is sexually presented to the public and no one does a thing about it.
So what's to be done? If “family drag hour,” or now, “child-drag” comes to your community, rally your community and do everything lawful thing possible to stop it before it starts.
Be brave and stand for your values. Stand for the children who have no one else on their side.
