I have been very clear… I have absolutely no problem with gay people.
None at all.
It’s their business. I don’t care.
And I’m going take that ONE step further… hopefully y’all don’t lose your minds:
I find drag shows entertaining. I’ve been to a few. I’ve watched multiple seasons of “Ru Paul’s Drag Race.”
(Shout Out to Mr. Green, loyal COTR supporter and fellow conservative RPDR fan!)
For those curious, RPDR is like America’s Next Top Model, only with Drag Queens. It’s a totally dramatic trainwreck and I just can’t look away.
Drag is an artform, and I respect it as such. These are incredibly talented and creative individuals. Drag is ALSO the NON-PC stepchild of the LGBT community… if there’s ONE thing drag is REALLY good at, it’s being politically incorrect.
It’s fascinating to me.
I’m not here to argue about this. You can feel however way you want. I feel this way. That’s what’s cool about being a Conservative. I’m not here to police your thoughts. Hopefully, you’re not here to police mine, either.
Anyway… A Pride Parade has BANNED Drag Queens… (men in dresses) for fear they may offend transexual people (men in dresses who believe they’re women.)
According to Daily Wire:
Free Pride Glasgow, which bills itself as being a “non-commercial” and more open-minded alternative to the traditional Glasgow LGBT pride events, is taking drastic steps to prevent the oppression of marginalized peoples, banning drag queens from its annual parade.
After extensive consideration, the Free Pride Glasgow committee members decided that having men dressed as women giving stellar performances during the event would be offensive to transgender individuals, and that non-binary people within their ranks would be “uncomfortable with having drag performances.”
DEAR GOD. GET A FREAKING GRIP AND STOP BEING SO OFFENDED BY EVERYTHING.
For reference, here’s what’s TRIGGERING them:
OH LORD! How are Trans and non-gender binary people supposed to deal with this HORRIFIC DISPLAY OF LIP SYNCHING IN WOMEN’S CLOTHING?!
Here’s a hint… I’m SUPER conservative and it doesn’t wad MY panties up… maybe your “liberal” A$$ES should unclench a bit and get over it?
They’ll miss the feather boas and the glittery footwear, but “the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first,” the group told the Independent.
“It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke,” Free Pride Glasgow said in a released statement.
The decision was, notably, unpopular with famous drag queens, many of whom took to social media to suggest Free Pride Glasgow was drawing unnecessary and offensive distinctions of its own.
WHO. THE HELL. BANS DRAG QUEENS FROM GAY PRIDE? THE VERY BACKBONE OF THE PRIDE CELEBRATION? hello, ever hear of THE STONEWALL RIOTS?!!!

NOTE: this Daily Wire article makes it sound like Michelle Visage is a drag queen. She is not. She is a BIOLOGICAL woman who judges the show “Ru Paul’s DragRace.” K, thanks.
Several pride organizations chimed in to say that they, too, had considered banning drag queens over concerns that they make a mockery of the notion of gender fluidity, but ultimately decided to keep the “offensive” and “marginalizing” performers out of a sense of inclusion.
Yet ANOTHER case of the left eating their own.
