Fargo you came in strong in the clutch. A local Drag Queen group tried promoting a Kids Drag show this coming weekend. Unfortunately for the “Hot Mess Harlots”, there wasn’t enough interest and the event was cancelled. Womp, Womp, Wommmp.
I’m all for people expressing themselves however they see fit. Do what you want to do in your free time and don’t bother others. While the “drag queen” scene isn’t anything I’m interested in, if that’s what you’re into, you do you. I do take exception when you’re throwing something like this at kids to have them participate. Let kids be kids. If it sounds like I’m being judgemental, you’re damn right I’m being judgemental.
T. Arthur Mason wrote a very good piece on this show titled “Sexploitation: Kids Drag Show Planned in Fargo” that details plenty of things going on with this event. One particular quote that I found interesting was regarding the Hot Mess Harlots donations to the IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation). The IPPF believes the following:
“Young people are sexual beings. They have sexual needs, desires, fantasies and dreams. It is important for all young people around the world to be able to explore, experience and express their sexualities in healthy, positive, pleasurable and safe ways. This can only happen when young people’s sexual rights are guaranteed.”
I used to believe that “good ol’ North Dakota” would never see this kind of thing. Five month winters tend to keep out the riff-raff. This isn’t a discussion for me. People that think this is normal should get buried under the prison. This is the progressive agenda at its peak. There isn’t one argument that makes sense of this. The fact that it’s targeted at kids is disgusting. Thankfully there wasn’t enough interest and per the Facebook page of the Hot Mess Harlots, that kids show was cancelled.
Bloody hell. Let them be kids, tell them to play in the dirt, go to the park. They don’t need to be sex objects. They don’t need to be wearing makeup or pretending they’re older than they are. Scrape your knees, get dirty, and play with your friends.
Oh yeah, this is a sports website. My bracket sucked but I won the Crackin’ Bottled Brackets challenge. Fuck Villanova.
