In years past, there seemed to be a semblance of discretion when it came to impressionable children. They were “off limits” so to speak. However, in today’s society where left is called right and up is called down, it appears there is no age group immune to the influences of the left. Case in point, primed to make their debut on American televisions are two animated shows that are drawing high concern from conservatives for good reason.
World of Wonder recently released a trailer promoting a show entitled “Drag Tots!” that is set to air beginning June 28th. The show will star toddler drag queens and feature RuPaul, a famous transgender model. A recent preview on YouTube described it as follows:
“In a world on the brink of chaos, where fear is the rule of the land, the voices of a generation have banded together to give our planet what it needs…BABY DRAG QUEENS!”
“Super Drags” is another animated show seemingly aimed at children. It is set to release on Netflix, but the exact release date is unknown. Netflix described it as follows in a teaser preview:
“By night, they tighten up their corsets and transform into the baddest SUPER DRAGS in town, ready to combat shade and rescue the world’s glitter from the evil villains. Get ready, because SUPER DRAGS are doing deeper than you think.”
As expected, parents with a conservative and/or Christian bend are not at all happy with these two animated shows. Orthodox Christian author Rod Dreher described the show as “woke pederasty” to The American Conservative.
“Netflix is turning drag queens into animated superheroes, and RuPaul’s streaming service is turning drag queens into child superheroes,” he observed.
Christians or moral conservatives will most likely keep their children from viewing the aforementioned shows. But, is that really enough?
“You might think — I certainly hope you think — that your child will not be exposed to this filth,” Dreher went on to say. “The thing is, your child, and all of us, have to live in a world in which this is normal, and in which the popular culture thinks that dressing little boys up like sexually provocative women is not only permissible, but a sign of cultural progress.”
Unfortunately, these two shows are not the only examples of moral depravity aimed at naive children. Drag Queen Story Hours are currently being held throughout libraries all across America, and is being adapted by other countries as well. Activists like Tom Canham, who is the founder of Drag Queen Story Tim, said the following about the project:
“For me the project is about drag queens providing fun and inclusive reading for children about issues around misogyny, homophobia, racism, LGBTQ and gender fluidity in a way which they can understand.”
Dreher believes the way Christians should consider shows and projects aimed at normalizing immorality is to withdraw from what he describes as “decadent culture.” He goes on to encourage believers to “build ourselves up, teach those who are willing to be taught, and then build our versions of abbeys, to which Christians struggling in the world can rely on to form their own children. If not now, you conservative Christian readers, then when? What’s it going to take for you to get serious?”
Amelia Hamilton, acculturated author, warns that even if the Drag Queen Story Time or similar projects were created with an emphasis on teaching kids tolerance, it can still cause long-term harm in developing minds and souls. She believes that the Drag Queen Story Time; for example, is obviously “skewed in a particular political direction.” Of course, that would be left leaning.
The influence of such projects will cause kids to grow up believing that unnatural relations are normal, and absolute truths are somehow intolerant or unkind. Suffice it to say that the introduction of such shows or projects geared towards young minds is not something Christians or conservatives should take lightly.
