I’m sure glad I’m a straight, white, male. Being anything else is waaaaaaaaaaaaay too complicated. Take being part of the LGBTQWhatever “community.” they keep changing the rules .
A Pride event in Scotland has banned all drag queens from performing – in case they are “offensive” to trans people.
See what I mean? One minute you’re in, the next you’re out.
Blanca Del Rio would have been the life of the party last year, this year
she he whatever is uninvited. Last year she was cool, this year she’s offensive.
Here’s their whole statement.
Free Pride Glasgow – which was set up as an “anti-commercialist” alternative to the main Pride Glasgow event – made the decision ahead of the event next month, claiming that despite drag being a uniquely celebrated part of most Prides, they would not be welcome to perform at Free Pride.
A statement from the group claimed: “After much discussion, the trans and non-binary caucus decided not to have drag acts perform at the event.
“This does not mean that people of any gender can’t wear what they want to the event, we simply won’t be having any self-described drag acts perform at our Free Pride Event on the 22nd August. We hope people can understand and support our decision. However we feel it important to fully explain why we came this decision.
“The decision was taken by transgender individuals who were uncomfortable with having drag performances at the event. It was felt that it would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable.”
OK. What the hell is a “non-binary caucus”? Never mind, I don’t want to know.
Bottom line though is this. “The decision was taken by transgender individuals who were uncomfortable with having …”
Here’s a word from the old Curmudgeon for you folks. If you can ban people because you’re “uncomfortable” then so can I. And I’m really uncomfortable with all of y’all. So just stay the hell away from me.
