What the flip is going on in Canada, mang. This is some heavy shit, I kid you not.
A photo showing a 10-year-old Canadian drag queen posing next to a half-naked adult performer sparked outrage online. But the boy’s mother thinks it’s all OK and the child is not overtly sexualized.
The world of drag queens – male performers taking on exaggeratedly female personas and taking to the stage – may seem like an inappropriate place for minors. After all, sexuality plays a major part in a drag performance, and the common wisdom is that sexualizing young children for entertainment is a taboo.
Yet there are child drag queens. One of them – Nemis Quinn Mélançon-Golden – received some unwanted attention online after a photo of him posing in a black dress and fishnet tights next to an adult drag queen was posted online.

This child tranny thing… I’m writing about it a lot now and I’m not sure why this is even a thing.
If you had asked me 5 years ago, “Hey Roy, where do you see yourself in 5 years?”, I can guarantee you that trying to convince people that little boys in drag is a bad idea was not what I had in mind as my first answer.

It’s one of those things that’s so absurd it’s hard to explain why it’s bad.
I feel like a conservative Boomer stuttering and trying to explain what I believe and finding that I can’t because I haven’t had to ever give it any thought.
I just get angry and start banging the table and yelling about how much money I make.
Here’s an interesting take from the article.
The article mentions conservative speaker Ben Shapiro, who is described as an “alt-right mouthpiece and fierce critic of child drag queens”, who criticized the mother of another child drag queen for exploiting him “for attention.” The “child drag debate” is an example of “the widening gap between Liberals and Conservatives in North America and beyond” in the age of Donald Trump, Turton believes.
“Alt-right mouthpiece and fierce critic of child drag queens” is MY preferred monicker. Ben stole it.
Imagine a conversation with a liberal.
Xir: Like, why is it wrong for mothers to drag their 10-year-old boys to male strip clubs, dress them up as women and let gay AIDS-infected men grind up on them?
Me: …I… I… I don’t know how to answer that.
The very premise of the question angers and confuses me.
And I finally get the 30-year-old Boomer meme.
I don’t have the energy left to keep an open mind. My worldview can’t tolerate any more shocks and disruptions. I know what I know and I want to go back to a better time.
Besides, I shouldn’t have to explain such basic principles to people. And frankly, I don’t want to explain them. If you’re so fucked in the head that we even have to have this conversation, well, you belong in the bog. CASE CLOSED.
I’m just going to dig my heels in here and not even try to explain why allowing your nation’s sons to become mommy’s little twinks is wrong.
Like, if a liberal is going to start a conversation on, say, Global Warming, okay, we can have that conversation. It’ll be annoying and frustrating, but I can get where they’re coming from. I used to be concerned about greenhouse gases once upon a time too and the issue sometimes does come from a genuine place of concern for the environment, which I totally get.
But my reasonableness has limits.
This child tranny/drag thing is just so beyond the pale that words fail me.
Stormer needs to hire a young Zoomer finishing up high school who can pick the ball up from here and provide commentary on these little guinea pigs. Because I’m just too damn old. I can’t even begin to relate or even contemplate the idea.
Clearly, this child tranny thing is here to stay and these kids are going to need someone to provide in-depth rebuttals to child-tranny theory.
Can’t do it, mang. Sorry. I tap out.
