    Sure, that could be a reason too. Hence my question to Volaire above. If we have questions like that - start looking at stats. You'd think there would be info about the number of pedos that lived that lifestyle, if it was a higher % in that group of people, etc. Always better to look for info like that vs. just take what examples are fed to us, because of course it's going to be the most outrageous ones because that's where the money is.

    Thanks for the post, I appreciate the post and the back and forth. IMO if you take the time to read my posts and ask questions I am more in line than people expect on several things like guns, trans in sports, done with woke culture, Drag queen story hours, to name a few. What I feel happens is that my attempt to understand and not demonize people comes off to people as accepting 100% what they do for some reason, and that couldn't be further from the truth. My general philosophy is that you are a decent person until you prove otherwise. At our restaurant we have all sorts of ages, political leans, genders, whatever. We currently have ages 14-60, hardcore Trumpers and libs, 3 non-binary teens who requested they/them, gay/straight/pansexual, and I bet a lot of money several illegals. These are people I interact with, I have to train. I just choose to not view any of them as evil or deviant or whatever. Also in my family I have a niece that transitioned, and I had a police officer uncle murder somebody in cold blood while on duty in the town I grew up in when I was about 12. I've interacted with a ton of different people and had odd things happen. I am sure many of you can tell messed up situations and stories too. But like I said in our other interaction, we seem to have the same cutoffs on this particular issue of DQs, it's just for slightly different reasons.

    It's odd to me that grown adults, who I assume have been around and have kids of their own, can't seem to imagine why people might like to be around them in a non-sexual manner. Are there any stats that show a higher propensity for Drag Queens to be pedophiles? I'd be interested to see that if it's the case. Here's one reason I could think of: in general young kids are very non-judgmental and accepting. Not a Drag Queen, but I had an acquaintance that had a physical deformity. They were more comfortable around little kids and volunteered there because they didn't get the same looks and vibes as with adults. I could imagine a group of people used to be called freaks and deviants maybe being more comfortable around kids that just go with the flow instead of judging them and confronting them. Also, something like a story hour lends to things like you know - dressing up, singing, and pretending. Much more in the wheelhouse of somebody doing that as a job or as a hobby vs. serving at a soup kitchen for example. Now, I've been clear about what my position is on if this should be in school or other places. That above statement simply means there could be very easily be reasons they gravitate towards kids besides the desire to diddle them.

    This was my thought too. It works though - it got all our looks.

    Holy crap. If Alex Jones think you are going to far, you might want to rethink some life choices.

    Posting in it and bumping it is an odd strategy.

    Thanks, that is a good distinction. When I use Drag Queen it's in the ways that this is their chosen job/hobby, so a DQ can be dressed sensibly in the way that I think of it. I get what you are saying, and like I keep pointing out, it seems we are basically in agreement of what should and shouldn't be allowed. I also have a problem if parents aren't told what's involved with events and activities like this.

    ..and that's the one example I used because I saw it. A drag queen in what was basically a business suit reading to kids. Like I was saying with Voltaire, we might have different reasons, but we largely agree on what should and shouldn't be in schools. I usually don't know how to respond to comments like that last one. I don't think I'd actively would seek out a drag story hour at the library, but it's not like I would make a big deal if we were going to a story hour and it turned out when we got there to be a drag one. Depending on the age, if there was that blurring by talking about pronouns, gender, things like that I would probably quietly leave. But again, that's because I would do that if Fireman story hour started talking about gender and things or were inappropriately dressed, so it's not about the drag element for me.

    Would you be OK if one of the moms were a stripper, and wanted to come in and read to the kids and didn't act slutty? I guess what I am asking is if the person's job is the disqualifier for you, or it's more that you don't think there is a way that a reading hour could be done by them in a way that wasn't sexual. I have also seen different kinds of Drag shows as well. Some are over the top and sexual, some are basically just dudes dancing in women's clothes. It's not all the same.

    That is correct. I had to volunteer for a background check before coming in to read or helping with a hiking club recently. I don't know about libraries, but I would sure the hell hope something similar happens.

    Yep, we disagree on that. It's good to know what points we disagree on.

    The first part is where we start to disagree. I don't inherently think it's deviant behavior, and I don't think it means they are involving kids in a sex fantasy. We largely agree on the examples even if we don't agree on the labels and intent. I was clear in my posts that it's not all of them, but I have clicked on links when people are posting about how bad these things were and seen a man dressed in what boils down to a business pant suit and reading a book on the lines of Curious George. I was not at that event, all I can go by is the info in the article and there no mention of other things. Perfect example to me of "who gives a crap". Now, you are right that more often than not, it's mixed in with some encouragement about pronouns, or Drag names, things like that. I wouldn't want that in the school, but then we move to one of my other variables and if it's at a library some other business (not a bar or strip club), then it's into the territory for me of who am I to police people and their kids. I get the impression that we might disagree with that as well, largely because of our disagreement I noted in the first part of the post. I don't disagree with your sentiment in general, but it never really works out that way. I think both of us would be fine if school boards or local areas discussed these things and let the people vote on what they want their lines to be for things like books in the library. We both know that's not reality, and more likely it's just who shouts more at a school board meeting and who raises the most stink.

    The answer is yes. I have seen examples of Fireman story hour or around here they had a couple times a week where parents and volunteers come in and read to kids at schools and libraries. So in discussions I've seen the question switches to if that's somebody's job, or they are volunteering why deny them if we are letting the other examples. To be clear, that is not my position. I think it's fair to ask that about anybody being around kids, and I hope that we don't just let any profession in and we have the sense to cut it off before we get to Hooker Reading Hour.
