Rolling Stone tries to paint Ron DeSantis as evil for "bringing the ax down on furries," makes huge campaign contribution instead 🤣

Look at this tweet:

Now look at the story:

FLORIDA GOV. AND GOP presidential nominee Ron DeSantis has successfully sucked the pleasure out of many of life's little joys, from drag brunches to Disney adult TikTok. And thanks to the passage of SB 1438, or the Protection of Children Act, DeSantis may now be bringing the ax down on furries.

"Life's little joys" include drag brunches, Disney adult TikTok, and furries?

Holy Groomer Alert, Batman. I wonder what in the heck we'd find on writer Lyndon French's computer!

On Wednesday, the organizers behind Megaplex, an Orlando-based convention for furries — people who enjoy dressing up as or making art of anthropomorphized creatures — posted a statement on Twitter regarding its policy for admitting minors. The statement was in response to SB 1438, which makes "knowingly admitting a child to an adult live performance" a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by a year of prison and/or a $1,000 fine.

Furries are banning children from their pervert conventions.

That's the story.

That's what this is all about.

So what does a law about exposing kids to sexually charged content have to do with people dressing as cartoon bunnies and foxes?

Only an idiot or a pedophile would ask that question.

Seems like a totally appropriate place for a child...

...many furries do not view their interest in anthropomorphized creatures as sexual at all.

Mhmm. Sure, Lyndon.

The fact that the furry organizers felt pressured to bar children from the convention is yet another example of how it's been seen as an attack on LGBTQ rights. (The ACLU referred to it as "a blatant attempt to erase drag performers and silence the LGBTQ+ community.") The furry fandom overwhelmingly skews LGBTQ, with nearly 80 percent of furries self-identifying as such, according to surveys of the fandom.

Most people interested in dressing up like animals are also the ones with deviant sexual behaviors. Interesting!


Well, anyway, thanks for the campaign contribution to DeSantis, Rolling Stone!
