Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,
HOW ABOUT IF I, Karen Glover, a woman, decide that I want to be a DRAG KING? Yes, that’s right, a DRAG KING…I’ll wear an oversized mustache, thick fake eyebrows, a man’s wig…I’ll wear exaggerated muscular padding to emulate that of the most extreme body builder. I’ll have to attach a huge, prominent plastic male appendage below my waist to be hidden in extra room jeans to achieve my desired effect.
Wow, I look good.
Will Woke Mayor Katjana Ballantyne welcome my new found Diversity and invite me as an important guest speaker at the Public Library?
Actually, our extremely woke mayor doesn’t seem to have a clue as to the authentic meaning of Diversity! Mayor Ballantyne’s idea of Diversity certainly isn’t the lovely co-existence among all races, ethnicities and ages living at Clarendon Hill Towers. Many tenants dress in stunning apparel and proudly represent themselves, their birth countries and in many instances, their Faith. The Mayor’s disturbing idea of Diversity is big Blue Wigs, shiny dangling earrings, tacky jewlery, inch-long polished fingernails, garishly made-up faces, push-up Size Triple E padded bras…and, of course,an extremely suggestive wiggle walk.
Oh my goodness, what’s really going on in the minds of these innocent children, witnessing these lascivious creepy shows? Some confusion must be setting in as they also gaze upon the “understand-
ing, sympathetic smiles from their naive, Woke Parents? Seriously, are these innocent minds really sharing their Woke Parents virtue signaling “highly evolved” empathy for the “plight” of drag queens?
Childhood emotes an uncomplicat-
ed sense of innocence, merged with a blissful innate sense of safety. Yes, all social issues are complex. But when it comes to children, always caution and protection…
If Woke People are sincerely concerned about the safety of drag queens, there’s many much more appropriate mainstream venues to advance the visibility of drag queen culture in order to illicit a sense of understanding from the general public. This in-your-face to children library drag queen venue only will serve to ultimately cause emotional turmoil in impression-
able minds and is just plain wrong.
Mayor Ballantyne’s idea of diversity is adult men purposefully dressed in tacky women’s attire only to hypersexual-
ize the appearance of women and to allow themselves to self-identify solely as sex objects. Drag queens do not represent Diversity…they do not represent womanhood…they only represent a mynute minority of people like themselves who engage in a certain sexual proclivity…
making women appear to be stupid, moronic sex-crazed bimbos.
The drag queen culture is a lifestyle separate from the everyday lifestyle led by the average gay individual. Many gay men and women have expressed extreme dismay over this Drag Queen Story Telling Library Craze, which carries no value and significant meaning in their own lives. Recently, society has become cognizant of the opinion that, for instance, Blackface is insulting and degrading to Black People. It intentionally insults the intelligence of Black People, and theatrical productions with actors in Blackface portrayed skits intentionally choreograph-
ed to ridicule and portray Black People as perpetually foolish and lacking common sense. Nowadays, even the slightest appearance of ‘cultural appropriation” even if it may be flattering at times, is frowned upon, especially by Woke People…so why is ridiculing and demeaning the essence of womanhood in public libraries considered to be admirable and commendable behavior?
Most intelligent women take pride in their appearance as respectable women and make a conscientious effort to present themselves well socially and in the workplace. These Library Drag Queens depict Womanhood as silly, clownish, trivial, stupid, full of drama and sex-obsessed. We must run these Woke, Evil Politician Sickos who promote library creep shows to children out of office! These particular politicians have no moral or ethical compass. I feel empathy for any human who is hurt, assaulted and attacked in any way for who they choose to be…but transforming a highly sexualized fringe minority of society’s culture into pillars of society is absurd, and in this case of libraries… child abuse. Any drag queen who wants to show up at a library to read drag queen stories, or any stories, socialize and tease your
innocent child with hypersexualized “attitude” is probably not too interested in filing up your child’s head with wholesome thoughts…
Just the Opposite!!
