    I usually like to argue using my own words, not someone else's moronic picture. If you're not capable of original thought, there's no need to be embarrassed, just say so and it will save us both time.

    Again, opposition. I'm not sure what I said that didn't get through to you, but you act like the social right just handed homosexuals nationwide legal gay marriage and that getting it wasn't a decades-long affair. I think everything after that is just throwing Evangelicals a great big middle finger, which, quite honestly, is almost fine with me. I'm willing to accept almost anything if it means Evangelical Christians are miserable.

    Yeah, the Government de facto sanctioning entities for freedom of speech/expression has ALWAYS worked.

    Just let the market do what the market does. If it's made known that Hyatt condones and provides a place for this sort of thing, then I imagine that those opposed to such events could simply boycott Global Hyatt and make it known why they are doing so.

    Don't get me wrong, if everything is as the petition claims, then I agree that it was an inappropriate performance for children under the age of 16. However, provided no actual crimes took place, I don't see it as being for the Government to sanction such behavior, either via direct, or indirect, means.

    Of course, it is the quintessential Conservative M.O.; they're all about whatever freedom they say you're allowed to have.

    Christians, mostly, but that's because they're largely idiots.

    Proverbs 13:24, Hebrews 12:7, something else in Proverbs, Deuteronomy and I think other places.

    "Spare the rod, spoil the child," which isn't a quote, but a colloquialism that stemmed from the verbatim Proverb verse.

    The point being that Christians are mostly idiots. The educational attainment statistics support this thesis. Anyway, you can take something like this that happens only rarely and just ignore the behavior, or alternatively, you can take the route of broadcasting it as loudly as possible that this is going on and then attempt to use the rod, as DeSantis is doing.

    Of course, like a petulant child, which the Far Left largely consists of, they just want the attention...so DeSantis is playing right into their hands. What's the blowback going to be? More of the same. The further reaches of both of the socio-political sides endlessly trolling each other for no real purpose and to no real useful end. If, however, the behavior were simply ignored...then the child would notice it isn't getting them anything and would stop doing it.

    As ever, the Social Conservatives make something like this more of an issue than it really needs to be. Again, many of them are Evangelical Christians, thus, many of them are stupid, so you'll have that.

    Certain decisions have to be made by society, regarding what is appropriate for children.

    For example, if the local elementary school decided to show hardcore pornography to the students, would you be cool with it if the parents had to sign a permission slip before the kids attended?

    I'm sure almost all of you would say no.

    Therefore, the "Just don't take your kids if you don't like it" argument doesn't really apply here. It would only apply if you're talking about adults. I don't care if a drag show plays in my city, as long as it's open to adults only.

    Have you ever considered why there's no "construction worker story hour", "plumber story hour", or "electrical engineer story hour"? It's because these would be pointless. Men working in these professions have no need to gather together to read to little kids. This is left to people in educational or daycare type positions -- teachers, librarians, babysitters, etc.

    Drag queens are choosing to read to kids because they're trying to hammer home to young children that gender means nothing and is very fluid. Woke parents take their kids to these things, because it makes them feel good about themselves.

    While you can't really make this illegal if the drag queens are simply reading stories, you can state opposition to it, and question why it's being done in the first place.

    Gender ideology should not be discussed with young children at all. When they get older, it should be taught that gender dysphoria is a form of mental illness, where a small percentage of people feel very uncomfortable with their birth gender, and thus change to the other one as adults if they still feel that way. It should also be taught that many kids and teens experience gender confusion, but that a high percentage of them grow out of it, and return to feeling perfectly happy with their birth gender. Finally, it should be taught to be respectful of those who did have to undergo gender transitions in order to feel at peace with themselves, and not to discriminate against them.

    But that's not what the left wants. They want to teach that an 8-year-old boy who says he's a girl is definitely a girl. They want kids to learn that any deviation from gender norms probably means they're trans or at least "non-binary". Gender has become a choice rather than something you're born into. Being trans has quickly become something stylish and cool, rather than a last resort when you suffer from incurable gender dysphoria.

    There is a huge difference between being respectful to adult trans people versus being okay with indoctrinating kids. I'm for the former but not the latter.

    Here's another good question.

    How many people over 40 are transitioning at this point, and saying, "Wow, I've always wanted to do this, and finally it's acceptable!"

    Relatively few. You'll see it occasionally, but for the most part, gay and lesbian adults over 40 tend to be happy with their birth gender, even if they act effeminate or masculine compared to norms for their gender. If the huge uptick in trans identity is simply one of acceptance, then we should be seeing loads of older people finally declaring they're trans -- especially out gay and lesbian people. But we aren't. It is mostly a phenomenon with young, white people in middle-to-upper class settings in/near big cities.

    It's clearly become a social contagion, which has seized upon a real condition (gender dysphoria) and normalized it as a choice.

    This is not a good thing.

    Assuming that's a black church, it's tough to argue with those. They make the faith almost tolerable.

    I have got to believe that showing them hardcore pornography would conflict with a great many other laws that are already on the books. That's a pretty key difference.

    And, again, I'm not defending drag queen story hour. Especially not this one as it seems that sexual apparatus' were part of the performance, at least, if the Petition can be believed, but I don't know whether or not I believe the Petition. I'd like to see a video, tbh, before accepting the specific allegations in the Petition as true.

    If it's something where the performer is literally just sitting there and reading a book, then take your kids or don't take them. I see no need to take one's kids to such a thing, but if people are going to be allowed to make their kids go to church, then they should be allowed to take their kids to watch a dude in a dress read a book.

    Hey, you know one fun difference between the two concepts? At least the dude in the dress can be proven to exist.

    Umm...I don't know what your Elementary school was doing, but we totally had a day wherein parents would stop in and talk about their jobs; they'd also read books in the process. Did you guys seriously not have that?

    I don't think we disagree as to why it is being done. I agree with your positions as to what they're trying to accomplish.

    I agree that gender ideology, and really anything sexual, shouldn't be discussed with young children at all. I'm not sure at what age you have those discussions and think it varies based on both the parents and children in question. Of course, it seems like it would be difficult to set an age and say, "NEVER before x age." Ten, maybe? Never before ten? I don't know.

    Everything else from that second to last paragraph seems quite reasonable.

    As far as the last part, they want something to be true simply because they say/believe that it's true. Religion is no different, in that regard. It seems a strangely common tendency for people to want the truth to be whatever they say it is.

    Split is a devout Christian. I am not. But I'm sufficiently aware of this religion and the others enough to know that these things are very personal to them just as it is all the others. Making any generalizations about them is to do so without knowing all who claim to be what you're making judgements about. Nobody is that. There are even some good Catholics.

    If you are fucked up enough to take your kid to drag time story hour, youíre going to fuck that kid up the other 17 years and 364 days youíre raising them. Itís absurd and I canít imagine why anyone would do it, but the law grants you autonomy with your children if it isnít criminal. Iíd be for passing a law that outlaws it, but society is completely fucked and this is just reason 5000 why. Taking out your swastikas and romanticizing the Weimar period certainly isnít the appropriate response. The proper response is thatís fucked up, and Iím glad Iím not a retard who would do that to my kid .

    What's this? People suddenly don't like generalizing things?

    The guy up in the sky that barks all of the orders who he cannot even prove exists is only personal to him because he either had that hammered into his head from a very young age, or is very gullible, one of the two. Did he find his way here because he was one of the guys taken by Mitchell?

    Worry about your own destiny.

    I agree with your first sentence, hence why organized religion has been so successful for Millenia. So many adults are gullible children seeking simple and absolute answers and are also incapable of critical thought.

    That's not to say that I have a problem with your belief in God. I really don't give a fuck if you spend the rest of your life asking an entity who probably doesn't exist for things. That really makes no difference to me. What I do have a problem with, as I do with so many denominations of Christianity, is that you pass judgments and try to enforce a moral view on society that stems from something that you cannot even prove to be true in the first place.

    Comparing hard core porn to a drag queen reading a kids book in a library really are not equivalent.

    I wouldnít take my kid but donít care if you take yours. Just like I donít care if you smoke weed even if it is illegal.
