Okay, now I've lost all faith in humanity.

For me, it was when it was ok for parents to let their little boy dress in drag and do a strip tease in front of grown men

I live in CA and while I wouldn't put it past some attention seeking activist or celebrity, I don't know a single normal person even among liberal progressive types that would allow their kid(s) to do that. So I'm inclined to think behavior like that is way overblown by the bible thumping aspect of the right.

I have a friend who works at adult establishments back East. He's seen people on Facebook try to book pre-teens as strippers there. Said Clubs said "NO F***ING WAY! WE ARE 21 AND OVER!"

I've had a friend post about such things and how it's abusive and he had "progressive" friends of friends defend the actions.

I'm not saying it doesn't happen at all, but I can't fathom it happening on the scale that some claim. Kind of like how gun control proponents blow out of proportion the number of gun crimes committed with rifles. I have to treat both sides' arguments with the same level of skepticism in order to be objective, I'm not going to completely dismiss one side while taking the other on blind faith.

My dad is an extremist lunatic who wants to see the streets run red with the blood of liberals, Democrats, and immigrants, but that's obviously not the mindset of the average gun-owning conservative, is it? So it's not really fair to judge all based on a few.

Plus, I don't think one can seriously take pedophiles trying to abuse kids as any kind of proof of a widespread willingness of parents to allow or encourage the abuse of their kids, just like back alley muggings don't equate to bank robberies.

What bothers is isn't if it's common or uncommon or an outlier but that the notions are being entertained out there.

All it really takes is the willingness to look at a concept, no matter how crazy and it's possible to become reality.

I preferred to not be paranoid with incoming gun laws but the moment we don't pay attention, laws will be passed and have been passed to restrict our rights
