Christianheadlines.com reports that the Tennessee House of Representatives passed a bill last week that would ban drag shows from public settings, including in places where minors may be present. The bill also points out that violating the law once is a Class A misdemeanor and could result in fines of up to $2,500 and 1 year in prison. Additional violations would result in a Class E felony charge and could result in fines of up to $4,000 and a prison sentence ranging from 1-6 years.
This is one of the first attempts we’ve heard of to ban drag shows from places where children may be. The words family friendly do not belong in front of drag show—ever. Drag shows are inherently sexual and perverted and degrade women. They are not in any way appropriate for children. Our state legislators should be looking closely at this bill to see if it could work here.
