Mr. Mister a gay bar in Texas invited parents and their kids to attend a family-friendly drag show on Saturday, during PRIDE which drew angry Neanderthal protesters and sparked outrage on social media by the extreme right . Now, a Texas Republican lawmaker wants to close the doors on all-ages drag events.
On Monday, Royse City state Rep. Bryan Slaton tweeted that he’ll file a bill next session to ban drag shows from being held in the presence of minors. “The events of this past weekend were horrifying and show a disturbing trend in which perverted adults are obsessed with sexualizing young children,” Slaton said in a statement. “As a father of two young children, I would never take my children to a drag show and I know … the rest of my Republican colleagues wouldn’t either,” he continued. “Protecting our own children isn’t enough, and our responsibility as lawmakers extends to the sexualization that is happening across Texas.”
Further proof conservatives love to “protect children” unless they’re actually losing their lives.
Just sashay away.
