My theory on why straight people always think drag shows are about sexualizing the performer is because that's what straight guys do when they see girls singing and dancing. They superimpose how they secretly feel onto a subculture they don't understand. Every straight buddy of mine has made sexual comments about cheerleaders. So, naturally they'd think that we do the same to drag queens. Except WE DON'T.

Then they chopped up the body into bits, hailed a taxi and dumped it into the river?

Think these parents have the child's best interests at heart letting Michael Alig intrview their child while under a painting that CLEARLY has the word rohypnol on it? And let them dress the child up like a PANDA?

You know what all that means. Stop making excuses. This incident? Is what it appears to be.
Again, sorry I don't see anything sexualized about it. All I see are right-wingers trying to superimpose sex onto something that isn't. It's like saying look at that rock it is so sexy...

Some people are sexually attracted to rocks.

You don't see any sexual connections:
between 2 older males interviewing a male child while seated underneath the word ROHYPNOL?
between 2 older males dressing a male child like a panda while seated underneath the word ROHYPNOL?

This child is in danger. But all around him people are cheering him on.

It's like watching a train headed for a cliff.

Believe me, that kid knows way more about transgender than you. I'm sure he's studied it beyond your comprehension. He has Autism. Einstein disease. If it were math I suppose you'd be saying the opposite.
Thankfully, he has parents like that and not someone like you who'd fight his Autism with your false sense of control.

An 11-year-old got an opportunity to perform in drag at a bar because that's where they perform. You act as if he was drinking. Do parents not drink around their children at home? Should they all go to jail? It's legal to drink alcohol in front of minors, you just can't give them a drink. So no, I don't agree. I think it was awesome they gave him a chance to feel good. As an Autistic he probably has way more moments of sadness dealing with people like you than he does "feel good" moments.

It doesn't look like he'll join the many Autistics we have that are homeless because he'll make plenty performing drag. A lot more than bagging groceries under the "handicapped" act at the grocery store.

Different strokes for different folks. Learn to appreciate the differences because it will make your life easier.

His parents?

Have no problem letting their child hang out with a man who murdered someone in cold blood. Bashed his head in with a hammer over drug money. Chopped up his body and took a taxi so he could dump the pieces in the river.

Oh? AND the guy -- Michael Alig -- interviewed the child under a painting that had ROHYPNOL painted on it.

But, yeah. These are STELLAR parents.

If this was any other kid? People would be screaming about it. But since the kid is TG? Anything goes, parents are PROFITING THE CRAP out of this child.

All I can do is SMH. People are BLIND as to reality. They truly see what they want to see.

No parent I know would EVER let their child near a murderer like that. No one.

he doesn't have to deal with 'people like me'. i'm an anonymous poster on the internet

if it were math he wouldn't be at a strip joint at 3 a.m.

i didn't say anything about him drinking. i'm sure the patrons were, though.

'false sense of control', my ass. this is an 11 year old we're talking about here, not a late teenager.

only a 'prude' could possibly find anything wrong with this situation...
