After an image of an eight-year-old boy in full make-up appeared on a website alongside adult fetish wear, people were understandably shocked.
We have all been warned for years that the next step in the “gender revolution” will be children, so this will have come as no surprise to a lot of us who have been watching it develop.
While I like drag and respect many drag performers, I think there should be a line in the sand when it comes to children.
I see drag as an underground subculture, which mixes performance arts, fashion and comedy elements together. If, like me, you have a dark sense of humour and like a bit of razzle dazzle, it can be a great way to spend time with friends and have a great night out.
But the jokes are often very low-brow with sexual connotations, and the performers often play with overtly sexual themes. I wouldn’t feel comfortable introducing a child to that world.
I delve a bit deeper into the stories behind the new "drag queen children," which have been popping up over the last year or so, and raised my own concerns with regards to child stars in Hollywood and in the fashion world.
From what we know about the scandals, I wouldn’t want my child going anywhere near that lifestyle.
