Drag Queen Storytelling In Primary School

Recommended Posts

Perhaps I should have been more explicit.

When I said 'Children aren't interested and wont ask', I'm talking about the specifics of particular sexual kinks, along the lines of those which have apparently caused the consternation in this particular case. Not men wearing dresses, but adults participating in acts with toys on social media which is clearly for the consumption of people 18+.

Children wont enquire about matters they have no knowledge of.

If your child is asking about why a man in a dress is sucking on a dildo, you need to review their internet access and supervision, and possibly call social services to boot.

Then the police will get involved. Gets messy at that point.

The response from Mhairi Black is an interesting one.



From the stories about this, not always in the most reliable publications to be fair, the concerns raised by the parents seem reasonable and balanced. Most of them said that they were happy for the children to be taught about different people and lifestyles but that maybe a performer like this wasn’t the best choice. And their representative has said that they are homophobic, also rolling this description to gay people who don’t agree with her. I know people who are huge SNP supporters in her constituency who are annoyed with her about this response.

Thought it wasn't a great response from Black either. Another reason why politicians shouldn't "do" twitter, imho.

Think that's a different thing tbh. 

How/why is it different?

I don't think making a sweeping generalisation like that is the best way for a politician to go about making a point, but she's correct enough about some of the hypocrisy here.

How is pantomime different from a drag act named flow job, as it pertains to school kids?

Righto. Clearly your usual pishy wee problems with me is going to result in you trying to paint me as having a problem with this. Just go ahead and misquote me like usual and save us all the time.

Why do people always assume drag acts are gay?

Most of them seem fairly happy at what they're doing.

You haven't answered the question I asked. No need to have a tantrum.

You can even answer your own wee invented question if you'd prefer.

I don't have a problem with you. Why is it different?

Well it does go back to my previous point which set my stance out fairly clearly. Theres not enough info. My experience of yer drag Queen is that it is often highly sexualised. As a parent I am wary of anyone going near my kids regardless of gender of sexuality with that type of content unless I know what is included. 

I dont tho, so I am wary here, but my experience of drag queens is that their acts are fine for me  but not for my kids until they are older.

If this was simply someone who does drag reading some kids a kids story then fine. Like I said, not enough info

I think parents forget what they were like as weans. I remember a whole group of us in primary school crowded round a magazine of highly sexualised content, a hell of a lot more explicit than anything this drag queen would be doing.

I'd think it would be a safe enough assumption that the person was in situ to read a book, not do the stage act.

They read a book to a class of children. There's not much mystery about it. They were introduced to the class as "Flow".
