Conservatives are celebrating the COVID-19 pandemic for reasons that only make sense if cruelty is your religion.
The Media Research Center’s Gabriel Hays is excited because the self-quarantining means libraries are closed… which means drag queens can no longer read books to children.
… There are silver linings to some of this limbo, one being that the LGBTQ community has to slow down its offenses against our sensibilities.
… famous drag queens are lamenting the lack of people coming to their shows because of quarantine.
Hey, at least kids all over the country can be safe from drag queen story hour for a month…
… All the viral videos of them sexualizing kids as young as nine-months-old are proof that maybe from certain perspectives, quarantine might be good.
Imagine how miserable you have to be to take joy in the cancellation of a children’s story time. Those events aren’t sexual, by the way. Conservatives, much like pastors and televangelists, just can’t imagine people who don’t fit gender stereotypes without thinking of sex. Everything is sexual to them. Even reading to kids.
Those story hours will eventually return. I’d like to think this brand of bigotry will eventually die out.
