So im dense for having a differing opinion? Do you not see how that could be thrown straight back at you?

I do not like the photo but there is no way that photo is pornographic. If you think it is, please demonstrate how. It fails the dictionary definition of pornography all ends up - meaning your response is emotive rather than logical.

An emotive response is not a good way to 'Deny Ignorance' but it's ok, flame away.

In this case your "different opinion" is just daft pedantry and deliberately obtuse.

Of course it isn't pedantry. The thread title asks if it is child porn. It blatantly is not child porn. If you disagree then show how - you have failed to do this on every attempt so far.

If you can't show how then you clearly concede that you have simply made emotive responses and don't have a valid argument. Don't you see that?

Or am i wrong for expecting you to be able to validate your point?

Again, as many of you seem to be missing the point, this isn't about whether the picture is appropriate or tasteful or whatever, the author specifically asks if it is child porn.

The picture in question



This is what's causing all the ruckus? Put those EXACT poses & facial expressions on a sunny beach, draw thong lines, and it's not suddenly not an issue -- guaranteed.

No dice... unless we're talking about 80s hair metal... drag isn't theater. That being said... I'm not so sure that someone firmly planted in one way could just suddenly change... unless of course she's mentally or physically abused and it distorts her world and screws with her coping mechanisms.

That's a lot more likely to happen if she is surrounded by drag queens and other gender dysphoric individuals.


Well, have to disagree about drag in theater. The ancient Greek theater up until at least Shakespeare were all male casts, women weren't allowed to perform. If there were any female characters to be played, men played those parts in drag.

I do agree that being a part of the drag scene isn't a great choice for family life. I don't think that the daughter's husband is too pleased with it, but he allows it. If she keeps that part of her life separate and doesn't try forcing that lifestyle on the kid or husband, it's not a big deal in my opinion, just another performance on stage. But like I said earlier, it's adult theater and kids shouldn't be any part of that IMO.

To be honest I think of drag performance as parody. Of course, no one would approve of black face performances, so there is bias toward the idea that's it's OK to dress up as and perform as the opposite sex, just don't do that as another race. That aspect makes it more about accepting an alternative lifestyle than preserving a theatrical tradition.

Don't give a #.

The pendatry isn't important. Why can't you understand that? What is happening here is sick effing child abuse.

As lgbt I think this is vile.

It is totally unacceptable, and puts our entire community in a bad light.

Drag kids (or rather their "momagers") - please go back into the closet.

is it because they dont have daughters to put into beauty pageants for the heterosexual pedophiles so instead they dress their sons up in drag and put them in drag show contests for the homosexual pedophiles?

I thought the definition of porn is naked bodies and intercourse , this is just some sick dude standing naked next to a kid he probably will abuse at some point in the near future as he is probably actively grooming him right now !
and is to me child abuse , but it could be porn to pedos !

I have no idea

Well I see nothing wrong with children playing dress up, this is not that this is deviant aholes trying to exploit children and trying. To make it seem mainstream and normal. I feel same way against all children beauty pageant for God's sake let kids be kids. If I took a picture with a man wearing a fib with a 13 year old in my area and cops found out about it you better believe I would be getting charged brought against me which shows how far my state has come because they used o allow 15 year old girls to strip when I was a teen.

Generally speaking I'm OK with almost anything done between consenting adults.

The ten year old in this photo shoot was apparently having fun and very likely was accompanied by an adult relative. Fine . . . but what is the message? Drag queens were kids once too, and are kids, and its OK for a kid to be a drag queen?

If that were the only message involved, i.e., gender, at least psychologically, can be flexible and this ought not to be forced into the shadows or be the object of disapproval or scorn, I wouldn't object to that either.

Unfortunately putting the little boy/girl into a photo with a virtually naked man/woman veers off into more ambivalent territory. Some fashion shoots in leading fashion magazines have been criticized for presenting veiled soft core kiddie porn using very young models. This shoot is similar and even more thinly veiled. That probably was not the intention.

Putting children into the position of being the objects of sexual desire, in the media, ought not to happen. It isn't fair to expose them to widespread attention of a sexually focused sort. My two cents worth.

After re-reading this thread and the last post I made, I thought I should add a few other points about the theater and drag.

There is a high percentage of homosexual men that are theater actors. This was true from the beginning of western theater up to the present day. Traditional, having only male actors and performing in drag is linked to homosexuality.

My brother had done some tours with a theatrical troupe doing a musical production of "Alice in Wonderland" to family audiences. Can't get a more Disney show than that. All but my brother, one other guy and the female cast members were straight, the rest of the cast were gay men. The GF's daughter that does the drag performances talks about all her gay friends into the drag scene, no surprise there.

Seems pretty obvious that gay men like the stage. So anyone that may try to down play the connection of homosexuality and drag performance by claiming it is merely an artistic tradition or freedom of expression is skirting the truth.

Just to clarify, I've got nothing against kids playing dress-up with drag, being involved in theater productions or even families forming clubs where kids can have competitions in safe, family friendly environments.

But there are clips on YouTube where one kid performs in an adult drag club (which many of the patrons apparently even complained about).

And then there's a clip of this "drag kid" (or "club kid", seemingly another moniker) sitting next to a guy who was found guilty of murder, and this kid was obviously on some illegal substance.

This has all just crossed the line of any conceivable rationale.
Not only do the two leading "drag kids" (who are apparently in some kind of competition with each other) dress like thirty-year old sex workers (which would be completely inappropriate for girls their age), they have personas to match (at least when the one is coherent), and there are major calls to have the parents investigated (at least in one case they are both unemployed) and they openly appear to be pimping out their kids.

That to me is vile, not necessarily kids having a drag bag at home.
I can't be more specific, because that would even be against the T&C on ATS.
