One of the apparent recruiting tools to bring children into the LGBT lifestyle is drag shows – those events with costumed men and women cavorting onstage in skimpy attire.
The men often dress up as women.
The whole scenario has left parents across the nation feeling violated, irritated and enraged, on the whole.
Now one state is proposing to do something about that.
According to a report at Breitbart, Tennessee lawmakers have adopted a plan to prevent drag shows from taking place "on public property or in front of children."
It does this by classifying "male and female impersonators" as adult cabaret performers, and banning "adult-oriented performances that are harmful to minors."
The plan has been approved by the legislature, and now heads to the desk of Gov. Bill Lee, a Republican.
A sponsor, State Rep. Chris Todd, R-Madison County, explained, "this is a common sense child-safety bill."
It makes it against the law to have an "adult cabaret performance" where children are present. They also are banned on any public property.
The law describes cabaret performers to include "topless dancers, go-go dancers, exotic dancers, strippers, [and] male or female impersonators who provide entertainment that appeals to a prurient interest."
Penalties are misdemeanors carrying fines of up to $2,500 and a year in jail.
Repeat offenders could be charged with felonies.
Sen. Jack Johnson said it targets "sexually explicit" entertainment.
"We’re protecting kids and families and parents who want to be able to take their kids to public places," he said.
