Daring SNL Skit With RuPaul Highlights The Absurdity Of Drag Queen Story Hours

We have long been covering the rising trend of drag queen story time and other such events in public libraries, schools, and other venues where these adult performers are given access to young, impressionable children. 

But is this trend reaching a breaking point? 

Last weekend, sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live seemed to poke fun at the controversy sweeping Western culture that is Drag Queen Story Hour. However, what the show really did was expose just how empty and foolish the idea of drag queens reading storybooks to children really is.

The skit, titled “The Library,” does a surprisingly great job of highlighting just how frivolous and silly the entire premise is and what the actual goal is: to immerse children in drag and LGBT culture.

Newsweek gives us a rundown:

The skit opened in a library, with two employees played by Aidy Bryant and Mikey Day speaking in front of an audience of parents and children. The pair introduced the person who would be reading to the children that day—famous drag queen RuPaul, who was also the episode’s guest host.

RuPaul began to “read” a selection of children’s books to his audience.

“First up: Eloise by Kay Thompson,” he began. “Ooh, Eloise, you need to call the front desk and get a hot oil treatment for that broom on your head! And girl, Victoria’s Secret called—they want their wallpaper back!”

Putting Eloise aside, the drag queen then held up another famous picture book: Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans. He again poked fun at the illustration on the cover, which depicted a nun walking with several schoolgirls on a forested road in front of the Eiffel Tower.

“Miss Madeline, I have bad news, child,” RuPaul said. “The Eiffel Tower is not in the woods. Girl, you better draw France right, b—-. Somebody trying to act like they been to Paris. Pshaw. You ain’t never been there, girl.”

Later, at Bryant’s character’s prompting, the audience learned that there had been some miscommunication between RuPaul and the library. The type of “reading” he thought he came there to introduce to the children was something more than simply exploring the magic of literature. In drag culture, it refers to a specific kind of mockery.

“Reading is throwing shade,” RuPaul said. “A brutal insult wrapped inside a glorious wordplay.”

Now, it’s hard to imagine that RuPaul or SNL’s writers have any of the moral qualms with DQSH events that we do, but they’ve nonetheless exposed our biggest concern. 

Drag Queen Story Hours are being used as ground zero for the LGBT indoctrination of young children under the guise of education. The sketch goes on to illustrate just how selfish parents are who drag (no pun intended) their kids to see drag queens reading books.

In the sketch, of the mothers in the audience, played by Ego Nwodim, asked a mother next to her if they should leave but that mom, played by Kate McKinnon, said “absolutely not” and that RuPaul’s “reading” of the book characters was the most fun she had “since this girl blasted out of me,” referring to the birth of her daughter. Does this not unwittingly expose the reasons most parents frequent these events? For their own personal gratification? 

Towards the end of the skit, Day’s character timidly suggested ending the event, because the type of “reading” RuPaul showcased probably would not prove useful to the children. Who knew Saturday Night Live could be so right about anything?

  DQSH events may be fun for “woke” parents looking to give themselves a pat on the back for supposedly showing their children how to be inclusive but, children are not benefitting from this deranged practice. As a matter of fact, it’s hurting them.

In the sketch, in response to the suggestion that perhaps the “reading” session should be ended, RuPaul replies, “Well, sir, these children are spending their Saturday inside a library with RuPaul,” adding, “A well-timed read is going to save their little booties on the playground, right?” before continuing on with his “reading.”

At the end, RuPaul says, “O.K. children, you go,” suggesting it was now their turn to participate in the “reading.”

There it is, folks, drag queen story hour in a nutshell: drag queens setting inappropriate examples for children and then encouraging children to join in, suggesting a future benefit to this type of behavior.

It looks like SNL and RuPaul were having a good laugh at the absurdity of drag queen story hours. Truth is, there’s nothing funny about them. We also know from very recent experience that RuPaul himself is quite content to expose children—literally—to the highly inappropriate side of cross-dressing and drag. 

In reality, these events feature sexually immoral characters, many of which have criminal records, interacting with vulnerable, defenseless children. They need to be shut down and united we can take a stand and get the job done.
