Drag Queen v Tranny

Before I launch into this discussion, I want to be perfectly clear that when I refer to a male, I am referring to a biological male and when I refer to a female, it is a biological female. I only make this distinction for purposes of clarification.

Recently, I’ve seen articles about how liberal controlled schools are introducing elementary age children, grades 1 thru 5 to the world of the “gay and transsexual culture” by inviting Drag Queens into the classrooms for a form of show and tell(?).

Where do I begin to express my concerns over this blatant display of discrimination against the LGBT society and cultures as well as to straight people?

I’ll begin by saying that I feel employing the average Drag Queen to give presentations about gay life to young children is not only detrimental to the future mental health of children but is a direct insult to the larger LGBT community.

If our liberal schools are going to introduce specific non-mainstream cultures to our children and grandchildren, shouldn’t they also be offering presentations by Transsexuals, Transgenders, Leather, S&M, B&D and other groups equally active in the “sub-strata” of our society? From my perspective, I feel that the Drag Queen agenda is more about getting attention than about a sexual identity. Drag Queens are the Divas extraordinaire of the makeup cosmetics industry; entertainers in their own art form but they are not indicative of the average Transsexual. In fact, if I were a transsexual or a transgender I think I might be insulted and demeaned by the very thought of a Drag Queen lecturing anyone on Transsexualism. To quote a friend, “it is like trying to compare an Edsel to a Lamborghini; it’s just not happening!”

Is it an art form? Perhaps, but so too is body-building, transsexualism and just being straight or gay; that is if we act ourselves as we understand and accept ourselves don’t we really become ourselves? Isn’t that the ultimate goal of a Transsexual?

I feel that if schools want to introduce students to the gay culture, they should invite not only Drag Queens but Transsexuals, and mainstream gays such as doctors, lawyers, teachers, police officers along with members of every other profession in our society. I’d be willing to bet there would never be a shortage of gay people willing to step forward to talk about themselves as people, not sex objects or actors, but people.

Furthermore, if they are going to have an honest open forum, the guests should be seen in their normal daily attire, not in theatrical costumes. The only rule would be that each guest must appear as themselves, not as the character they play. I believe the difference between each of the three guests will be very evident to the children without explanation.

Now, back to the original question: Drag Queen v Tranny.

My opinion: the difference is America’s Got Talent v Lives of American Transsexuals; one person’s theatrical skills v one person’s survival skills.

Which do you want your child to learn?
