The moral panic about drag shows says more about what conservatives find to be sexual than it does about what's appropriate for kids.
There is this local group of nutty women called "The Mama Bears" that have been terrorizing school board meetings. They dressed up in the same costumes as some high school boys that put on a drag school to prove a point, and while it was definitely a bit odd to wear a cocktail dress to a school board meeting, nobody to the left of the Amish would be scandalized.
Spot on. I can't believe that I ever considered myself a conservative. I was always on the moderate end of that anyway.
