Conservatives Are At it Again
Can you believe conservatives are doing what they do best, losing their minds over something that doesn’t impact them? When Crocs was announced as a sponsor for a children’s fashion walk on the mainstage runway of RuPaul’s DragCon UK, they decided they were going to start burning their Crocs. Why do they burn things they already bought? We’ll never understand.
What conservatives will never understand is that drag queens are not including children in events to groom them, but rather to provide them the support and acceptance many of them were robbed of when they were growing up. It’s incredibly frustrating to watch them twist the meaning to fit their narrative.
We can’t wait to see how the fashion show at DragCon UK turns out!
