Teacher Who Supported Drag Queen Visiting School Says Parents Shouldn’t Have “Final Say” in Raising Their Children
A teacher at a school in Texas said parents shouldn’t have the “final say” in raising their own kids after some of them complained about a drag queen visiting the school to give a talk to the children.
Willis High School was paid a visit by an adult drag performer by the stage name “Lynn Adonis” who spent the day with children and exchanged social media contacts with some of them.
School Principal Stephanie Hodgins defended the decision to invite Adonis after parents complained, but English teacher Anthony Lane went further, suggesting that parents should submit to the will of the “community” when it comes to raising their own kids.
“I believe that raising a child is the responsibility of the community and that parents should not have the final say,” said Lane in response to the controversy. “Let’s be honest, some of you don’t know what is best for your kids.”
