If Republicans re so concerned about the sexualization of children, why are they trying to ban drag shows and not the pageant culture depicted in shows like Toddlers and Tiaras?
Conservatives don’t want children exposed to comic drag queens, but they're just fine with turning children *into* exposed, sexual drag queens. pic.twitter.com/2PLctayLSy

And if church is what you’re seeking, look no further than a drag brunch.

Trying to sanitize pride makes no sense! What do you think I'm proud of? The growing contingent of queers in cargo shorts?

With friends like these…
The New York Times running an article this week blaming trans people for the fall of Roe vs Wade and then having "enby" as an answer in the crossword today is just the perfect encapsulation of the state of trans media coverage, no notes
