Every single conservative leader around the country should be talking about this and as usual Ron DeSantis is the one leading the charge:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suggested Wednesday that he might urge the state's child protective services to investigate parents who take their children to drag shows.
When asked by reporters whether he would support proposed legislation from a Florida state representative that would punish parents who take their children to such performances, the governor said he has asked his staff to look into the idea.
"We have child protective statutes on the books," the governor said. "We have laws against child endangerment."
Now, real talk: Calling child protective services is serious business. You only do it as a more-or-less last resort, when a child is in significant danger of some kind and the state needs to step in and act on the child's behalf.
Does this rise to that level?
There's a case to be made that, yes, it does. How do we know this? Because we know, instinctively, that way more people would be convinced that this was a possible child protective issue if this were a normal heterosexual burlesque show being performed by actual women.
If parents brought their children to what amounted to a sort of lite striptease featuring Dallas-area strippers, nobody would think of denying the obviously sexualized nature of it all, and many more people would be calling for legal action against it. The only reason the Left is defending this is because the dances are being performed by gay men, which somehow makes it okay.
Still, does that mean CPS should be called? Maybe or maybe not. But at the very least DeSantis correctly recognizes that this is a deeply perverse, disgusting and alarming thing, and that we should at least be able to talk about the possibility that it constitutes child abuse.
Don't be afraid to ask these questions and consider these possibilities. The well-being of children depends on it.
