Rolling Stone Claims DeSantis’ Adult Drag Show Crackdown ‘Sucked Pleasure’ Out Of ‘Life’s Little Joys’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Florida Republican governor and 2024 presidential candidate Ron DeSantis (R) recently signed a bill that bans children from attending events that include "sexually explicit content," such as drag shows or drag brunches. So of course, a writer at Rolling Stone is mad at him for, and we quote, "having successfully sucked the pleasure out of many of life's little joys."

    Why is having children around adult content something worth celebrating to Rolling Stone? We don't dare ask but we thought the column was worth highlighting to show the utter insanity - and perversity - of the American Left.

    "This is sad that you kind of have to do this," DeSantis said after signing the "Protection of Children Act" in mid-May. "There's these, like, drag shows. It's sexually explicit, what they're doing. And look, adult entertainers - people can do what they want with some of that. But to have minors there, I mean, you have situations where you'll have an 8-year-old girl there, where you have these really explicit shows, and that is just inappropriate."

    In turn, DeSantis has been attacked by the far Left for assaulting the LGBTQ community or something. "Drag queens," and other adults, seem confused about what they can do in front of children. Now, a "furry convention" hosted by Megaplex in Florida has banned children from attending so as not to defy the law, even accidentally.

    A certain EJ Dickson of Rolling Stone magazine seems especially incensed that DeSantis is using his authority to guard the innocence of children and keep creepy adults away from them.

    "Florida Gov. and GOP presidential nominee Ron DeSantis has successfully sucked the pleasure out of many of life's little joys, from drag brunches to Disney adult TikTok," Dickson wrote. "And thanks to the passage of SB 1438, or the Protection of Children Act, DeSantis may now be bringing the ax down on furries."

    What's a furry? Well, as described by National Geographic, a furry, at its most basic level, is a person "who believes that they are part human part animal."

    As Dickson describes, though, some people who consider themselves "furries" do it purely for a sexual fantasy of sorts, replete with dressing up as various animals and engaging in vulgar behavior. So in other words, Dickson is mad that children aren't allowed to be around a bunch of adults whose sexual fetish might be dressed as beasts and different creatures.

    "While SB 1438 does not specifically target minors dressing as furries, it prohibits children from attending adult performances, which it defines as 'a presentation that depicts or simulates nudity, sexual conduct, or specific sexual activities,'" Dickson noted before claiming, "And, like drag, there are pervasive misconceptions that this mode of expression is inherently sexual."

    However, the writer notes that while it is "true that there is a segment of furrydom that does treat it as a kink, it is not a representation of the wider community, and many furries do not view their interest in anthropomorphized creatures as sexual at all."

    Where that line of sexualization starts and stops is murky - apparently - so Megaplex decided to make the convention age-limited to those older than 18.

    Rolling Stone spoke to one transgender furry named SemJay who owns a furry adult toy company. He agreed with Megaplex's decision but said he would not be attending.

    "I don't want to end up in a confrontation, or worse, jail or dead, for just going to the bathroom in Florida," he said in reference to another law signed by DeSantis which requires individuals to use the bathroom that correlates with their biological sex.

    In reaction to Rolling Stone's article, DeSantis staffer Christina Pushaw tweeted, "Don't expose children to your fetish and we are good."

    It should be noted that as a good rule of thumb, common sense and basic morality would dictate that if there is any question about whether your behavior could be perceived as "sexually explicit" - then it surely is not appropriate for children to see. Apparently, Rolling Stone needs to learn that lesson - as does the furry community.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
