New York D.O.E., P.B.S. Feature Drag Queen In Show Aimed At 3-8-Year-Olds


               The New York City Department of Education recently teamed up with PBS member station WNET-TV to create and air a series of children’s shows called “let’s Learn.” The series was ostensibly designed to help “children 3-8 with at-home learning,” and features "instruction by educators and virtual fieldtrips."

              What is the collaboration between the NYCDOE and public television helping the kiddies learn? Well, the Daily Caller reported on a recently aired episode hosted by a drag queen known as Little Miss Hot Mess who told the youngsters "I am a drag queen and a children's book author, and you may be wondering to yourself: 'What on earth is a drag queen?'" Yes, I’m sure that question has been keeping them up at night for some time now.

              Little Miss Hot Mess then described drag queens in part as "everyday people who like to play pretend and dress up as often as we can," before going on to say drag queens "also are leaders in our community, and if you ask me, we make pretty good role models."

             After glowingly characterizing drag queens in general, LMHM proclaimed, "Today I'm going to read from my own book, which is 'The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish,'" performing it to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus." And why do the “hips on the drag queen go swish, swish, swish” Little Miss Hot Mess?

“She” then explained why she plagiarized Verna Hills’ song to draw attention to “her” hips, saying, "I wrote this book because I wanted everyone to get to experience the magic of drag and to get a little practice shaking their hips or shimmying their shoulders to know how we can feel fabulous inside of our own bodies." How would you instruct three-to-eight-year-olds to feel “fabulous” inside of their own bodies, Hot Mess?

At one point the performer/author/transvestite exclaimed, "I think we might have some drag queens in training on our hands." Really? Why might that be, Little Miss Child Abuser?

Kids learn a lot between the ages of three and eight, much of which affects how successful, stable, and happy they will be in their adulthood. The revelation that “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish” need not be part of their education.
