“Let’s be real here – Drag Queen Vanessa Vanjie is not Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster, oh no, instead he is (the man under the woman’s clothing and make-up) actually a child’s worst nightmare, a monster dressed with the intent to decimate the soul of a child by perpetrating a lie.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Anyone who knows me personally knows I am not a trend-setter by any stretch of the imagination. A close look in my clothes closet is evident of that fact. However, I do pay close attention to groups who are in the business of setting trends.
Trend-setters are those who work tirelessly to make a change in direction away from current prevailing cultural preferences as in the areas of fashion, topics or ideas by introducing, establishing, and popularizing new trends.
Film, print, and social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter are proving to be most useful when an individual or group seeks to generate a lot of attention and drastically change the mindset of individuals in facilitating a “new” and “welcomed” trend.
In an earlier article at Pulpit and Pen entitled There is an Adult-Induced Perversion of Children Sweeping the Land, “Drag Kids”, we examined the use of film to perpetuate the corrupt notion that drag is a welcomed self-expression for children.
