The left loves to push their agendas on children. The younger they are, the more impressionable.
It’s sick, we know, but that hasn’t stopped the leftists.
“Drag Queen Story Hour” is now in publicly funded school and libraries over the U.S. – because that’s how you fight gender norms apparently.
The story hours seem to have begun with the help of San Francisco-based RADAR Productions and New York-based Feminist Press. But now Canada also wants in on this practice. They hold their own version of the story hour at a public library in Edmonton.
CBC News reports:
“Big personalities with big hair shared stories at the Edmonton Public Library on Sunday afternoon that they say they wish they’d heard when they were kids.”

“It’s OK to be different,” one of the drag queens running the event, Lourdes, told the packed crowd of about 150 people.
“Five clumsy drag queens wearing big shoes,” went one rhyme. “One fell down and her hair did, too!”
“We dress like princesses. The drag kings dress like cowboys. They bring stuff that the kids are drawn to,” said Lourdes.
Another drag queen, going by TJB, read a book called The Boy Who Cried Fabulous.
“So many synonyms!” exclaimed TJB.
“Edmonton’s still a very conservative climate and so again, for young impressionable children who may not be fitting into the binary boxes in the world, it’s very important for them to have examples of people and places they can grow into that are inclusive,” said the drag queen.
The program – if you can call it that – was pushed for by Kristopher Wells, faculty director at the Institute of Sexual Minority Studies and Services at the University of Alberta. He dubbed it “Over the Rainbow Storytime”.
“What I’ve learned today is there’s nothing better than a drag queen reading a story,” Wells said.
He apparently doesn’t get out much…
“I had tears in my eyes seeing the families stream in here and the excitement where people felt safe and at home.
To see the rapt attention of these kids, the excitement, the happiness, the freedom to be themselves, to celebrate their families and reflect our community, this is what pride should be all about.”
Freedom to be themselves? It sure seems like you’re telling them to be like the drag queens if you ask us.
Let’s just take a look at what this “freedom” can bring, shall we?
A National Center for Transgender Equality study found that 30% of transgenders have experienced homelessness. Around 40% have attempted suicide.
This doesn’t sound like a happy-go-lucky lifestyle. It sounds like people are confused and suffering because of it.
Yet, programs like “Drag Queen Story Hour” exist, celebrating and encouraging gender confusion in children!
Sure, liberals blame society for the suicide rates, how the homelessness. But Transgenderism has long been defined as a mental illness called gender dysphoria. People also suffer from depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts.
Is it really society’s fault? Maybe…the part of society that encourages “Drag Queen Story Hour”.
