Strange? Guys in drag shouldn't perform for pre-schoolers?

Some people are just not progressive. Sad, they must be homophobic. Or have half a brain. Oh well.

Most Parents Oppose ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’

Rasmussen Poling

Tuesday, November 15, 2022

The popularity of “Drag Queen Story Hour” doesn’t include the parents of school-age children, who overwhelmingly oppose the phenomenon in which men dressed as women perform for children.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 60% of American Adults consider “Drag Queen Story Hour” not appropriate for children, including 44% who say it’s Not At All Appropriate. Only 29% think “Drag Queen Story Hour” is appropriate for children, including 11% who consider it Very Appropriate. Another 10% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Among those who are parents or parents of school-age children, a majority (51%) believe “Drag Queen Story Hour” is Not At All Appropriate for children.

Earlier this year, it was reported that the nonprofit Drag Story Hour NYC, which sends crossdressing performers to interact with children as young as 3, had received more than $200,000 from New York taxpayers since 2018. Only 14% of American Adults believe taxpayer money should spent on “Drag Queen Story Hour,” while 71% say it should not receive taxpayer funding. Another 15% are not sure.

The survey of 1,000 U.S. American Adults was conducted on October 26-27, 2022 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

While 47% of Democrats consider “Drag Queen Story Hour” at least somewhat appropriate for children, that opinion is shared by only 17% of Republicans and 22% of those not affiliated with either major party. However, majorities of every political category – 89% of Republicans, 56% of Democrats and 71% of the unaffiliated – are opposed to taxpayer funding of “Drag Queen Story Hour.”

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of whites, 60% of blacks and 65% of other minorities think “Drag Queen Story Hour” is inappropriate for children. Similarly, 71% of whites, 66% of blacks and 73% of other minorities oppose taxpayer funding for “Drag Queen Story Hour.”

Women (32%) are somewhat more likely than men (27%) to say “Drag Queen Story Hour” is at least somewhat appropriate for children, but strong majorities of both men (72%) and women (70%) are against taxpayer money being spent on such events.

Married Americans are more likely than their unmarried peers to think “Drag Queen Story Hour” is inappropriate for children.

While 46% of Americans under 40 believe “Drag Queen Story Hour” is at least somewhat appropriate for children, just 20% of those ages 40-64 and 17% of those 65 and older share that opinion.

Americans with annual incomes below $100,000 are most likely to consider “Drag Queen Story Hour” inappropriate for children.
