Tennessee Bans Mutilation of Minors and Puberty Blockers, Restricts Drag Shows

Doctors who perform “gender” procedures on minors in Tennessee will be breaking the law. Governor Bill Lee signed in bill into law last week that bars doctors from mutilating minors or giving them puberty blockers and restricted drag shows on public property or near schools.

This law protects children from undergoing irreversible medical procedures that may harm their physical and mental health, as well as interfere with their normal development. Gender surgery and puberty blockers have long-lasting and irreversible, and unknown effects on a child’s body.

The homosexual lobby, through “gender affirming” and drag shows, is trying to desensitize children to sexual perversion and its harmful effects — unfortunately with the explicit consent of parents.

Children should not be exposed to any sexualized content, let alone homosexuality. Children don’t understand this content and certainly can’t give consent to be exposed it. Any parent who consents to the exploitation of their children should be ashamed and held accountable for contributing to their children’s confusion about sexuality.

From the Washington Times:

Tennessee has become the first state to enact a law this year prohibiting sexually explicit drag shows where they may be viewed by children, reacting to concerns about the upswing of drag queens entertaining kids in schools and public libraries.

Gov. Bill Lee, a Republican, signed Senate Bill 3 into law Thursday without fanfare after signaling his support earlier, saying it was important to ensure that children were not “potentially exposed to sexualized entertainment, to obscenity.”

Performing drag shows in front of children — and on government property — would have been unthinkable even five years ago. What were Christian parents doing (or not doing) to allow this to sneak in?
