Rutgers University Must Disinvite Drag Queen Who Uses Children in Sexualized Video
Rutgers University, "The State University of New Jersey", has a student center on the New Brunswick campus called the, "Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities", or SJE, for short.
The SJE is part of the Office of Student Affairs, and, as it says on its "About Us" webpage, their mission has a focus on "gender and sexuality".
That is about the understatement of the year...
In fact, the SJE sponsors daily, weekly and monthly events, mostly trying to normalize homosexual behavior, gender dysphoria (otherwise known as "transgenderism"), and gender ideology.
For the beginning of the Fall term, this year, the SJE are sponsoring an "LGBTQIA Welcome Week", which is to include a welcome Reception, next Tuesday, September 5th, in the Student Center on campus.
The main entertainment for the LGBTQIA Reception is supposed to be a drag queen, called Freddie Ross (aka "Big Freedia") - a man from New Orleans, who dresses like a woman and who sings sexually-provocative songs.
But, what the SJE Welcome Week committee may have missed (though, it is difficult to know how they would have missed it, unless they are completely blind to what follows) is that "Big Freedia" has made "hypersexualized" music videos which depict young children behaving in a sexualized manner.
For example, in one video called "Drop", "Big Freedia" frequently is at the center of 15 (or, so) pre-pubescent and adolescent girls, who are arrayed around him. On several occasions, "Big Freedia" shakes his posterior in a sexually-charged manner, which is responded to, in a like manner, by the girls.
In another example, in a video called "Na Who Mad", boys are shown dancing on the street and, then, separate footage of teenage girls who are gyrating to the music, is shown. All the while, "Big Freedia" is directing their movements with his lyrics.
This is what wikipedia refers to as "'Bounce' hip-hop" music, and, actually describes it as, "call-and-response-style party and Mardi Gras Indian chants and dance call-outs that are frequently hypersexual."
And, "Big Freedia" "stars" in other similar videos.
It is true that there is no nudity in the videos, but the very fact that "Big Freedia" should have made such videos - which depict the sexualization of children at a young age - is evidence of a serious lack of judgement and a moral compass which has gone astray.
An argument could be made that, even with parental consent, using children in such a way approaches child abuse.
Therefore, for the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities at Rutgers to have invited someone like "Big Freedia" to headline at their "Welcome Week" Reception also indicates a serious lack of judgement and a moral compass which has gone astray.
The bottom line is that a public university, like Rutgers, should NOT sponsor - whether by funding and, or, by providing a venue - such an act.
For these reasons, this petition - which is directed to the Director of Rutgers University Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities, Ms Zaneta Rago-Craft, and Cc'ed to the President of Rutgers University, Dr Robert Barchi - asks that Rutgers disinvite "Big Freedia" from the "LGBTQIA Welcome Week" line-up.
