Republicans’ Wet Dream: Outlaw Drag Queens

Kids are being slaughtered in their classrooms. Americans are dying of starvation. The earth is basically on fire.

So what are our representatives doing to save the world? Criminalizing drag shows.

Yup, the uselessness of our elected officials just doesn’t stop. She who shall not be named took to Twitter, bragging that she will waste Congressional resources in an effort to shield young people from anyone she deems outside the heteronormative margins.

When it comes to Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent, MTG has none but she is one.

Spell. It. Out.

Anywho, Margarine TayTay Peen isn’t the only nutbag working to demonize drag. In Arizona, an unhinged weirdo named Vince Leach joined the fray.

Oh, excuse us – that’s State Senator Vince Leach.

Btw, isn’t that the perfect name for a cartoon villain?

Leach lost his damn mind (well, what meager scraps he had to begin with) when he heard about an indigenous drag show at the Heard Museum.

Senator Scrotum-Head flew into a legislative rage, vowing to ban all access to drag shows for individuals under 18 years of age.

Why?

Because he heard that kids were exposed to queens who had their “crotch wide open.”

Ouch!

Royally rising above the idiocy, Pyraddiction thanked her audience for braving the horrors of LGBTQ+ representation.

“To all you children who are here, give a big round of applause for your parents who brought you. I know I would’ve liked to have gone to a drag show when I was your age.”

See, that’s one of the many concepts that right-wingers fail to grasp: we are all just kids. We need to fall down and pick ourselves up, and who better to teach us than a death-dropping superstar?

Tragically, many queer adolescents won’t have the opportunity to grow up with the guidance of a fairy drag mother. In fact, many won’t even survive into adulthood. The extremism of the Republican Party has oozed into society and it shows no signs of clearing up.

A Christian Fascist group recently invaded a drag event, urging police to “go in there and put bullets in all their heads… that’s what the badge is for.”

Conservatives are so scared of self-expression that they want to literally kill us all rather than understand us. They have obviously chosen hate, but all we can do is love, love, love until our dying breath. We pray that day is far in the distance.
