There’s a bear inside, and a chair too, there are people with games, stories to tell, open wide, come in, it’s kindergarten…
In October 2022, ABC and Kindergarten featured Shane Jenek reading a story about a girl who wanted to wear pants instead of a dress. Jenek is a cross-dressing artist who performs under the name “Courtney Act” (with all of its sexual innuendo).
In the Senate Estimates Committee on November 8, 2022, Senator Alex Antic asked David Anderson, CEO of ABC, about the segment and child grooming. Senator Antic said ‘gender dysphoria was being fostered’ by allowing a man parodying regressive gender stereotypes to read a children’s book about a gender-nonconforming girl on the Kindergarten program.
Despite Greens Senator Hanson-Young’s strong urgings on the committee about victims of sexual abuse, the word ‘grooming’ has widened its scope of sexual predators targeting children to groom them for abuse or exploitation. sexual. Known as ‘systemic grooming’, ‘grooming’ is now understood to encompass a wide range of strategies designed to instill and indoctrinate children, through education and entertainment, in ideologies such as critical theory of race and queer theory.
Boundaries that were once accepted and common are being eroded, creating conditions that elude protection and leaving children vulnerable to more damaging predation. Such tactics are often presented as harmless, espousing the values of kindness, inclusion and diversity, but can be an unwelcome intrusion into the moral framework and values that parents want to instill in their family life, and undermine their efforts. to protect their children from harm.
Jenek first appeared in national media on australian idol in 2003; failing to do the final cut as himself, he was cast when he returned to his ‘Courtney Act’ drag persona. Jenek didn’t make the top 10, but came to public attention nonetheless, saying, “A lot of people thought I was prettier than most of the girls on the show…more glamorous.” Jenek has appeared on reality TV shows such as Big brother and RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked. He was signed to BMG (now Sony Music), peaking at No. 29 on the ARIA Singles Chart with Rub me bad and release other singles such as Ecstasy, AAA with William and Alaska Thunderf*ck, and drop of liquid In 2020, he appeared in a documentary titled Meet the Glamcocks.
Jenek has publicly identified as “pansexual, queer and polyamorous”. On October 21, 2022, Our magazine confirmed that Jenek had been in a “group sex situation” with Rob Mills, another 2003 australian idol pretender, and reported that Jenek said, “I’m absolutely stunned by the revelation that Rob Mills thinks three people is an orgy…”
Some feminists, women’s rights advocates, and conservatives criticize drag as a parody of femininity, performance that mocks and sexualizes regressive stereotypes of femininity, and it can be called “woman’s face.” Others consider it a harmless creative art form. I suspect some Australians would accept drag provided it was performed in an appropriate setting, such as an over 18 venue.
With the vast majority of Australians fully accepting people with gay sexual orientations, our country is one of the best examples of the inclusion of gay and lesbian people in society. But rainbow campaigners, funded largely by generous taxpayer grants – whether it’s the $13 million and more given annually to the AIDS Council of NSW (ACON) or $25 million at the Victorian Pride Center in St Kilda – would have us all believe that those who ‘self-identify’ in the ‘LGBTQ+ community’ are the most oppressed, most vulnerable and most at risk of violence. Despite these claims, it is clear that Aboriginal women are most at risk of violence and homicide in Australia.
Gays and lesbians achieved equality before the law in 2017 with the amendment of the Marriage Act 1961 after an overwhelming majority of Australians voted in favor in the plebiscite – myself included. Despite securing this last piece of the legislative rights battle, “diversity, inclusion and equality” remains lucrative work for LGBTQ+ organizations, who continue to actively promote their agenda with government institutions, departments and private companies, including the ABC, and demand additional rights under the law, such as the protection of self-proclaimed “gender identities” at the expense of biological sex.
The ABC, revealed in the Exposed ACON project led by researcher Kit Kowalski, was arguably compromised by its relationship with the AIDS Council of NSW and membership in the controversial Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI). This system ranks organizations based on their compliance with integrating and prioritizing an LGBTQ+-centric worldview, and directly conflicts with women’s rights. LGBTQ+ identified people’s platform and promotion of their agenda earns organization points on the index, it remains to be seen if featuring “Courtney Act” on Kindergarten will earn ABC points in their annual submission to AWEI. ABC GM David Anderson dancing on a Mardi Gras float didn’t earn them points in their latest submission because he didn’t speak publicly about ‘inclusion’ at LGBTQ+-endorsed events. ACON.
At the end of this month, Lyle Shelton appears in Queensland Civil and Administrative Court to defend a lawsuit filed by Dwayne Hill, a transvestite and adult entertainment industry award-winning man who plays a drag queen called “Diamond Good-rim,” and a transgender woman. identified, Johnny Valkyrie, who plays ‘Queeny’ and had a Gofundme page to raise money for a bilateral mastectomy. They complained about Mr. Shelton’s Blog where he criticized the Drag Queen Story Time Session, and demanded a public apology, a purge of his blog of any warnings about the misdeeds of drag queens reading to children and $20,000. Mr. Shelton intends to defend himself vigorously on the basis of his right to freedom of expression.
The Drag Queen Story Time session at the Brisbane City Council Library where these two were reading to preschoolers was protested by a group of University of Queensland students. The images went viral, sparking a backlash online; the organizer of the demonstration, Wilson Gavin, a young conservative homosexual, committed suicide the following day.
These days, it’s unlikely anyone would think twice before reading a story to children about a little girl wanting to wear pants instead of a dress. But there is a raging global controversy over children being exposed to gender identity ideology and queer theory through the media and schools without the knowledge or consent of parents, a explosion of children and adolescents with gender dysphoria and a growing number of detransitioners, those who regret hormonal and surgical interventions to achieve a facsimile of the body of the opposite sex. Mr Shelton’s impending trial is an example of efforts by LGBTQ+ activists to silence any criticism of men and women posing as arguably sexualized parodies of the opposite sex reading stories to very young children.
In light of this, Senator Antic was right to object to a cross-dressing man reading a story about a gender-nonconforming girl on a preschoolers’ TV show funded by Australian taxpayers. . The ABC executive clearly sees things differently, during the Senate Estimates Committee hearing, David Anderson responded to Senator Antic’s questions saying, “I don’t see this as prepping kids with our content. “
