A registered child sex offender has been reading to children at Houston Public Library as part of its Drag Queen Storytime... A media spokesperson for the library confirmed one of the program’s drag queens, Tatiana Mala Nina, is Alberto Garza, a 32-year-old child sex offender. In 2008, he was convicted of assaulting an 8-year-old boy.
For the millionth time, I don’t for a second believe that there are more sex offenders, perverts and pedophiles among trans people than there are among any other group. The overwhelming majority of trans people are good, normal folks who’d never harm a child or assault anybody and who just want to live their lives in peace. Just like gay teachers aren’t more likely to be pedophiles than straight teachers. It makes me very angry when people claim otherwise because it’s demonstrably untrue.
However, I do believe that the uncritical acceptance of anybody’s claim that they are trans that we are being forced into can and does allow actual perverts to pose as trans to access victims. Anybody who wants to work with children should be background-checked irrespective of what identity they claim to have.
Also, it’s an extraordinarily bizarre thing to do to expose children to clearly adult hobbies. What’s next, bringing the BDSM folks in chains and leather gear to nursery school? I’d never take my kid to such an event because I don’t see the point.
