Don’t Celebrate Kids in Drag

This isn't progress.

Desmond Napoles marches in the Gay Pride Parade on June 28, 2015 in New York City.

By Jennifer Hartline Published on January 10, 2018

I’d like to think that any adult worth their salt would want to throttle the adults who allowed a 10-year-old boy to dress in full drag queen garb. They would fear for that child’s life and soul. I’d like to believe that. But I can’t anymore.

I can’t because it seems to be the next demand of the “LGBTQIxyz” agenda: celebrate and encouraging the queering of our children.

Don’t try to tell me this isn’t being done on purpose. This is just the next piece in the puzzle, the next envelope to be pushed, the next frontier to be blazed. The next frontier after that? Decriminalize and then normalize pedophilia as just another “orientation” that is common to human beings and thus, normal.

Sexualizing Children

The “m.o.” is to sexualize the children from toddlerhood. Bonus points if you queer them. Sever their healthy ties to biological reality. Tell them their physical bodies mean nothing and send them adrift on the sea of their feelings. Break down their natural and healthy sense of modesty and privacy. Teach them to act on every feeling, especially every sexual feeling.

After all, they are “sexual” beings. Planned Parenthood declares: “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.”

Apparently it’s not enough that America slaughters babies in cold blood in the womb by the millions. Now adults feel free to feed them to a perverted sexual idol that modern America has crafted out of its craving for “autonomy” and “personal truth.” We molded this monster with our lust, selfishness and arrogance.

They can’t just be boys and girls anymore. They have no right to latency anymore. They must learn to satisfy the demands of the sexual Moloch that is now devouring them while their parents gush and take pictures.

Blame the Adults

I don’t want to write about 10-year-old Desmond. He’s a child in desperate need of sound guidance. He has no way to comprehend the real consequences of his behavior. It’s not a game he’s playing, but he can’t possibly understand that. It’s not his job to understand that. He’s a kid.

That’s the job of the grown-ups. Are there any grown-ups left around him? Are any adults in charge of him who have the spine to call this madness what it is?

Biology and physical reality are antiquated ideas. All that matters is “my truth” and “your truth.”

I don’t blame Desmond. I fear for him, and I weep for him, and I pray that God will intervene to rescue this poor boy and set him on a new road to wholeness and purity.

I blame the adults who worship their carnal desires. In the modern world, men are little gods. Modern man worships our power to reconstruct ourselves according to whatever we feel like today. Biology and physical reality are antiquated ideas. All that matters is “my truth” and “your truth.” 

Moms and Dads can sit the kids down and say, “Dad is becoming a woman! Isn’t that wonderful? Be happy for him because he’s going to be so much happier now. And guess what? Mom is becoming a man! Oh, Johnny wants to ‘transition,’ too? Gee, won’t we just be the happiest, most enlightened modern family!”

A New Hole into Hell

Parents see a little boy gravitate toward pink, or put on a dress while playing one day, and suddenly they think he needs to be encouraged to decide for himself whether he’s really a boy. He might be transgendered. We don’t want to impose society’s outdated gender norms on him.

They must tell him his body means nothing, tells him nothing worth knowing. Five year-olds in kindergarten who probably still think they could fly if they jumped off a high roof are now burdened with the task of defining their “identity” based only on their feelings.

Pre-pubescent kids are chemically mutilated for a few years before they’re surgically mutilated as older teens. Teenagers who can’t buy beer are now fully empowered to make permanent, life and body-altering decisions. Their brains aren’t fully mature until they’re 25 or so, but they know enough to decide to cut off their healthy breasts or penis. 

This isn’t progress. This is a regression to a dark and inhuman place where people despise everything pure, right, and truly human. As a nation we’re already drenched in the blood of our babies, and now we’re piling up the bodies of our young children on the hill of “Identity.”

    Queering them? That’s a sure clue that you don’t have one. A person is no more turned queer than they are turned straight. So ridiculous.

    • Jennifer Hartline

      No, John. No human person is ever born “queer.” That is a concept and a definition totally foreign to the human person who is made in the image and likeness of God. It is an inhuman theory straight from hell.

      • John Connor

        Sorry but that’s pure opinion without support.

        • GPS Daddy

          Your standard reply when your cornered…

          • John Connor

            Cornered? Nope.

          • GPS Daddy

            yep

          • John Connor

            Because god isn’t an answer.

          • GPS Daddy

            wrong

          • John Connor

            The nonexistent are never the answer.

          • Paul

            I know what you mean, Caitlyn Jenner does not exist, no matter how much you want to pretend, that is just Bruce Jenner in drag. Men do not become women, nor vice versa, no matter how much some folks pretend. All those surgeries simply chase the nonexistent. It’s madness, a delusion.

            Exactly. Worm dirt at the end. Nothing else follows.

          • benevolus

            That prospect seems to make you happy.

          • John Connor

            It’s just life.

          • GPS Daddy

            Purpose:

            Darwin: Meaningless… A Foreign concept… You are less than a speck in the universe… nothing…

            god- a nonexistent entity who poofed an entire world into existence and all of it’s inhabitants. we are specks in the universe. My family and life aren’t meaningless just more opinion.

          • GPS Daddy

            >> My family and life aren’t meaningless just more opinion

            Did you ready my post? Lets review. I wrote this:

            >>the meaning and purpose you so rightly find in your family

            Hmmm. did I say you do NOT find meaning and purpose in your family? NOOOO!

            What I wrote was that the meaning and purpose you find in your family is an illusion IF Darwin is right.

          • John Connor

            Not at all. I live in the now.

          • GPS Daddy

            So, then John Connor, explain to my in clear and rational terms how you get from a purposeless, unguided evolution to having meaning and purpose in life?

          • John Connor

            Evolution has nothing to do with a person having a meaningful life while here on earth. One need not believe in the supernatural to have meaning and purpose. You make the best of life while you’re here and afterwards, worm dirt.

          • GPS Daddy

            I’m amazed at how atheists will not connect with the worldview they claim to hold.

            So lets break this down. You wrote:

            >>Evolution has nothing to do with a person having a meaningful life while here on earth. One need not believe in the supernatural to have meaning and purpose

            Yep, agreed.You find purpose and meaning in life. Got that. So do I.That’s not disputed. I’ve given THAT one to you now for SEVERAL posts. However, the question remains: Is that purpose and meaning grounded in your worldview? That is the question that I asked you and that is the question you refuse to deal with.

            So lets ask it again. Well breakdown this down step by step going backwards:

            You claim you find meaning and purpose in life. You also claim Darwinian evolution is true. Hence, that meaning and purpose MUST have evolved in your world view.

            Please explain the evolution of purpose and meaning.
            Also, please explain how a purposeless, meaningless, directionless process evolved purpose and meaning?

            Now that should be clear enough.

          • John Connor

            Lol! I’ve explained myself plenty. No gods needed for a meaningful life.

          • GPS Daddy

            Lol! Made unsupported claims? yes. Explain? Not so much.

            You have a very,very poor showing here John. You have demonstrated the following:

            A fatalistic worldview
            An inability to explain what you claim in your life from your worldview.
            An intellectually bankrupt worldview.
            An unwillingness to see things from other’s point of view.

            And you did this for all to see.

          • John Connor

            And?

          • GPS Daddy

            And, of course, the meaning and purpose you so rightly find in your family is nothing more than an illusion IF Darwin is right.

          • John Connor

            Nonsense

          • eddiestardust

            So why come here?

        • benevolus

          If you are an unbeliever, why are you trolling on a Christian site? Go away.

  • Jones Howell

    It doesn’t end there. If people can ‘self-identify,’ then why can’t they ‘other-identify’? That is, if I identify as Atila the Hun, why can’t I squish someone I identify as a roach?

  • benevolus

    I think we all know what Jesus had to say about people who lead children astray. I almost shudder to think about it, but evidently the damned don’t seem to care.

  • Dena

    Why does it feel so demonic what Desmond’s parents are doing to their little boy? I saw a video of this little boy dancing in a gay pride parade. Something is so wrong and not right. As people cheer it feels like the devil is laughing and has plans to abuse this boy. He needs deliverance before something terrible happens to him. Doesn’t his parents realize they are opening the door for sexual predators to abuse their child?

  • Billie

    What a sick sick world we live in !! God help Them all

  • The focus is now, and has always been, the children! I was “recruited” as a child (what we call molested, the lgbt movement calls “recruited”) and then I became a “recruiter” (just a nice word for molester)! Don’t pity me because I was a monster, but I chose to be a monster and now I choose to follow The LORD and whatever HE lays before me to do!!! Bringing this dark to Light and revealing all of the lgbtP (for pedophile) movement’s secrets out into the open and making people aware of what they are doing! The lgbtP movement wants your children and grandchildren……. are you okay with that!??!!?!?!?!?!?

    • Suaria

      I was never molested, and have never molested anyone. In fact my SO is older than me by 4 months, and we are both in our 20s. I’m still bisexual.

      • GPS Daddy

        Maybe consider what sexuality means and what sexuality is for?

        • Suaria

          I know what sexuality means and what sexuality is for. Still bisexual.

            14:12 too. One would think when God chooses to repeat Himself you’d wanna listen Then again, if there’s anything we know today it’s that a vast majority of folks don’t think.

          • GPS Daddy

            They why are you against the one who designed and made you?

      • Royce E. Van Blaricome

        Wow! A public confession that you are a reprobate and prefer eternal torment in the Lake Of Fire over God. Smart! Real smart!

    • Jerry Reiter

      You are an admitted child molestor. Instead of taking responsibility for that you falsely accuse all LGBT people. That harms children and means you yourself are not taking responsibility for your actions. There are 12 year old virgins who know their sexual orientation. Rape does not change sexual orientation. “Corrective rape” has been tried against lesbians for centuries and never worked on anyone. You are still harming people, you false preacher.

  • LGM

    Hinduism has easily seeped into American Culture via the Yoga / Meditation Craze (thanks Oprah), and has dislodged Judeo/Christian sexual boundaries. Androgyny is the goal.

    • Suaria

      Indians who are predominantly Hindu, are more puritanical than Americans in sexual boundaries.

  • LGM

    ‘Progressives’ (godless) get a vicarious thrill from loosening sexual mores that include children. They want ‘Green Lights’ for all, so they can continue in their own sin.

  • Gary

    People in drag has always been perverted. It was perverted back in the 1950’s when Milton Berle was doing it on his TV show. It was perverted in the 1960’s when Jonathan Winters was doing it in his act. It has always been perverted.

  • Suaria

    Honey you are confusing being transgender to a stage act. Drag is simply a person dressing as the opposite sex and doing performances. For instance, a drag queen is simply a man dressing as a woman and doing a performance. He is still a guy who identifies as a guy. Being transgender is where you identify as the opposite sex when you were assigned the opposite sex as a baby. Desmond is Amazing just does performances and that’s all. Not to mention NAMBLA for a long time now is not allowed in any pride parade. If you like to parrot that somehow this will turn into pedohilia, you are wrong.

    • Jennifer Hartline

      There is nothing healthy in any way about a little boy dressing in drag and doing performances, as you put it. It is perverted. It is an assault on that child’s innocence, latency, purity, and appropriate sense of self. It is a perversion of human sexuality.

      • Suaria

        You’re the one who is making it sexual. Drag is not sexual especially since this is a child doing the performances. What a sick human being you are.

        • Royce E. Van Blaricome

          “What a sick human being you are.”

          That folks is whatcha call a Giant Sequoia Tree sticking outta one’s eye socket.

            Look people this person is so mature that they try to do ad hominem insults because they don’t have anything to add to the conversation.

          • Royce E. Van Blaricome

            Perhaps next time you should consult a dictionary before making yourself look like an idiot. My comment isn’t an ad hominem because it specifically addresses the “issue” and not the person.

            Perhaps it would be helpful for you to see a specific example of an “ad hominem”. Psssst, now pay attention… listen closely!!

            “What a sick human being you are.”

            THAT is an ad hominem that attacks the person instead of what they see.

            And just in case you still don’t get it, here’s another!

            “Look people this person is so mature that they”

            Notice how it attacks the person instead of what they said?Helpful? I’m not holding my breath. But hey, thanks for the fine public display that proves exactly what I said.

          YES! Thank you! She says she laments the sexualization of children, and then she commences to sexualize children. She doesn’t even know that drag is nothing to do with sex. Shows how uninformed these religious fanatics are. They’re literally inventing child abuse where there is none in order to demonize LGBT. I bet she doesn’t even look at the child sexual abuse that’s actually happening in her own church.

    • GPS Daddy

      That’s condescending. How about being concerned for the welfare of the child?

      • Suaria

        It is the same thing as let’s say when Romeo and Juliet first came out. Back in Shakespeare’s time, women were not allowed to be actresses. Only men were allowed to perform. Juliet was a man dressing as a woman for a performance. Drag is similar to that.

        • GPS Daddy

          A complete apples and oranges comparison.

          • Suaria

            Not at all. Back in the day, men performed as women which is exactly what drag is.

          • GPS Daddy

            Juliet dressing as a women in a play has nothing to do with men presenting themselves as women in society. Again, apples and oranges.

          • Suaria

            Drag is not presenting men as women in society. You are thinking about transgender people not drag performers.

    • Royce E. Van Blaricome

      Honey you are confusing Right from Wrong. Life from Death. Holiness from Sin. Eternity with God in Heaven and eternal conscience torment in the Lake Of Fire.

    Who cares what the kid likes to wear? How is it damaging his “soul”? If you think your soul is “impure” when you don’t meet society’s arbitrary gender expectations, then your idea of the soul is very insipid and callous. Also, the amount of angry craziness you spit out is comical. “Act on every feeling”? Did you miss PP’s encouragement of young people to express their sexuality in “safe ways”? Do you think proponents of gay rights want everyone to be a reckless sex maniac? Because they don’t. Pedophilia will be normalized? Not a chance. Children can’t give consent. No decent person and no one in the mainstream gay rights movement advocates rape/child abuse. Liberal activists/”social justice warriors” stress the importance of consent and speak against sexual abuse all the time. Transitioning is something people do on a whim as a result of “carnal desires”? Absolutely not. You have no idea about the experience of being transgender. Ironically, everything you spew out here is purely emotional and senseless even though you like to say you detest when people act on their every feeling.

    “Apparently it’s not enough that America slaughters babies in cold blood in the womb by the millions.”

    Wait…. you know the death toll of the crusades was 1.7 million right.

    Your belief in the predominance of flesh over spirit…. your belief that when your book stated “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” refers to the body and not the androgynous spirit is what will keep you tied to this planet incarnation after incarnation (yes I know reincarnation isn’t biblical and those who questioned Elijah’s origin were just having a bad med day) ;

    Your loveless perspective is akin to those fueling the fires that charred the skin of gays in the past and now causes young African boys expected of same gender love to be pulled out of their huts and publicly stoned. Your belief in hell acquired from the Proto-Germanic pagans exists so clearly within your mind…… because it is in fact the home you are making for yourself for lives and lives to come. Its sad as I am sure its not 100% your fault… but even this will not save you from natures impartiality.

    Thoughts return to the thinker.

    Good day,
