1/ Short 🧵 on anti-#drag efforts in Texas:

The Senate passed a bill this month that is pitched as a way to protect kids from explicit drag shows.

But legal experts said it would criminalize everything from dirty dancing to #LGBTQ Pride parades.… #txlege
2/ The lawyers identified 4 areas of concern: The bill includes vague descriptions of new crimes, specifically targets people “exhibiting” as the opposite sex, is overly broad in its definitions of “sexually oriented” and lacks discussion of an alleged scofflaw's intent. #txlege
3/ How could this suss out in the real world?

The bill criminalizes "real or simulated" groping of the butt, which the lawyers said could land performers and venues in hot water if dancing crosses is "prurient" content and is in front of a minor.… #txlege

Senate Bill 12 gets FINAL PASSAGE in the Texas Senate by vote of 20-11. It would criminalize drag shows or any other performances deemed overtly sexual if they're in front of or may be in front of minors.

Background:… #TXLege #SB12 #LGBT #LGBTQ #dragqueen
Senate Bill 1601, which would bar public money from libraries that host #drag shows, is up for final passage in the Texas Senate.

@SenRoyceWest, the only Democrat who voted for it yesterday, is asking Qs of the author. #txlege #SB1601
@SenRoyceWest West asks one question: Would the drag queen library bill apply to men wearing kilts in libraries?

@SenBryanHughes says no.

West asks no further questions. #txlege #SB1601

I'm going to use this as a thread on "fun" stuff within the Omnibus appropriations bill. Where to begin?

First, this bill is 4,155 pages long & was released after #Midnight. It's disgusting how Swamp legislators will not even attempt to read the bill's details. 1/
Nancy Pelosi said it best: We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it.

But before the bill passes, I'm going to highlight some things I think are of note or that I think are interesting.

Some GOP Senators are already touting how this bill spends less than @JoeBiden's request. That does not take into consideration the costs associated w/ supplemental appropriations & the PAYGO Waiver.

If & when @USCBO scores this bill, it will likely total $1.9 trillion. 3/

👇🏻 A great example of the manipulation of language to gain access to children. #dragqueen #storytelling #children #safeguarding #SafetyFirst
What is a "rich experience"? I do believe they are 'story telling'. What does "interactive" mean? An 'understanding of different communities' is used to manipulate, as is 'can reduce inequality'. A healthy positive start in life for children is one withOUT sexualization
Note how they use language & words to make the audience believe that teaching them about drag, etc. gives children a 'positive start' in life. This is manipulation. Exposing children to drag is going to 'reduce inequality' or normalise drag? #linguistics #questions #manipulation
