I have always liked comedian Georgia Lopez considering he played in several movies and shows that I watched growing up. However, today I learned that he views me as an enemy because I do not agree with drag, especially when there are children are involved.
On Thursday, the 61-year-old actor appeared on “The View” to discuss Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signing the “Don’t Say Gay” bill last year.
Contrary to how it sounds, the bill does not ban people from saying the word “gay,” but rather bans teachers and third parties from teaching young children in kindergarten through 3rd grade about sexual orientation.
The legislation reads, “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”
Lopez degraded DeSantis and anyone else who does not support drag after co-host Ana Navarro praised the performers.
He said, “If you’re an enemy of drag, you’re an enemy of mine.”
I find it interesting that Lopez thinks it is okay for men to dress us as women and perform for children. Who in their right mind finds this sickening act to be appropriate?
Lopez and co-hosts Joy Behar, Navarro, and Sara Haines also discussed scandal-plagued Rep. George Santos and how he allegedly has a history as a drag queen in Brazil.
Santos, the first openly gay Republican, reportedly dressed in drag and went by the name Kitara Ravache, according to allegations. However, Santos has denied those claims.
Unfortunately for him, his word does not hold much merit at this point considering he has admitted to lying about multiple things he said on the campaign trail and on his resume in order to get elected. Some of his lies included being Jewish, his work history, his college education, his grandparents fleeing the Nazis, having a brain tumor, and much more.
“Listen, I’m sorry, but this has had me cackling to no end. I love drag queens, I’m a drag hag, we were at a drag show this last weekend, I’m constantly defending drag queens. This has nothing to do with drag queens, this has to do with hypocrisy,” Navarro said.
She added, “[Santos], when he was running, went on Facebook and expressed support for the Florida law, the one we refer to as ‘Don’t Say Gay,’ he’s aligned himself with a party that has turned drag queens into a cultural wedge issue — a manufactured cultural wedge issue — so, it’s endless lies.”
