What a drag it is, being a drag scold

One bill proposed this month in Arizona would make it a misdemeanor to put on a drag performance in a public place, Bloomberg reports. … Much of the tut-tutting seems to arise out of a desire to protect the children from men in tights, skirts, other get-ups at drag storytelling hours at libraries. Someone called Lil Miss Hot Mess told Bloomberg that events like story hours are ‘reading books to children, encouraging them to use their imagination to envision a more just and fabulous world.’ Who would have a problem with that? Scolds who in a time of economic turmoil, lousy inflation, a dangerous war in Ukraine, worldwide pandemic and government tyrannies on the left and on the right believe that passing laws against drag shows is what a legislator should be doing, that’s who.” (01/15/23)
