Sick idea finds way to get sicker

"Drag Dyndrome" adThe sick, twisted drag queen story hour has landed a new opponent after picking a new, vulnerable target.  

“What happens when you cross a deviant misogynistic sexual fetish with people who are intellectually disabled?” writes Anna Bohach in an Activist Mommy online post. “You get a sexually exploitative nightmare that is the equivalent to a turn-of-the-century freak show.”

What is angering Bohach, who leads the group 500 Mom Strong, is the newest twist on the already-controversial story hour: parading Down syndrome men, dressed as women, in front of an audience.

She is speaking out after learning a London-based drag performer, Daniel Vais, has recruited Down syndrome men for his “Drag Syndrome” shows that are now touring the United States and Canada. 

In the commentary, the conservative activist calls Vais nothing less than a “carnival barker” for exploiting men who are vulnerable to sexual abuse. 

Bohach, whose son has Down syndrome, says Down syndrome people are vulnerable to abuse because they are very trusting and caring, yet they are often unable to communicate when someone has harmed them.

“It's a problem because it's sexual exploitation of developmentally disabled people,” she tells OneNewsNow, “people who are not always able to understand what something is when it's in a context like drag, which is a sexual fetish.”


LifeSiteNews reported from a "Drag Syndrome" show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where a small band of protesters were mocked and cursed by the show's attendees, and accused of being judgmental. 

"Men caked with makeup and wearing wigs and high heels," the story said, "did cartwheels on stage and ran up and down the aisles while lip-syncing various pop songs."

According to the story, the drag queen emcee of the show imitated a church pastor at one point and asked for a "Yah-men" from the raucous audience.

"Yah-men!" the audience responded. 

In her Activist Mommy commentary, Bohach concludes:

The progressive left that has been pushing Drag Queen Story Hours and “Drag Syndrome” cares little about the human rights and the dignity of children and disabled persons, much less the rights of women. They regularly push for the extermination of persons with Down Syndrome while they are still in the womb and abortion up to and after birth of all children abled and disabled. They have already fully embraced the idea that men can be women and celebrate womanface, so I guess we should not be surprised when they attempt to shred every bit of dignity and respect that Down Syndrome families have fought for.
