Don’t Celebrate Kids in Drag

This isn't progress.

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.”
