Military base at center of drag contraversy hosted pride reading event for kids

A U.S. Air Force base, Ramstein Air Base in Germany, was the subject of a pending drag event that ultimately had to be cancelled. However, this did not stop the base from carrying a pride related event in the name of inclusion. Volunteers read books to children in a room that contained rainbow themed decour. Many have pointed to events like this as a contributing factor to the recruiting challenges. However, Christine Wormuth claimed that the military was not “woke,” and that those who argued that it is woke contribute to this crises.

From Fox News:

The event comes a year after the same base found itself at the center of controversy over its planned “Drag Queen Storytime” event that was slated to take place last May but was canceled after receiving backlash from service members and parents, according to

“We’re celebrating Pride Month at the Ramstein Library with Drag Queen Storytime,” read a promotion for the event on the base Facebook page that was later deleted. “Be sure to wear your brightest and most colorful outfits!”

Another drag show event slated to take place at a Ramstein Air Base bar earlier this month was also canceled amid new guidance from the Defense Department that prohibited drag shows on military bases, according to a report.

The directive to ban the drag shows on military installations this month came from Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in response to multiple lawmakers voicing concerns over a number of shows that were planned on bases both inside and outside the continental United States.

The apparent spread of such events was at the center of questioning Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley faced from Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., during a March House Armed Services Committee hearing, with the two military leaders appearing surprised such shows were happening.

Colion Noir should host story hour as well. Room decorated with US flags. Kids might actually be interested.


Leave the kids alone.

She has a point, unless she’s thinking something completely different than what I’m thinking. Just saying…..

“Air Force Library Plans Pride-Themed ‘Storytime,’ Promotes Kids Books Pushing Gender Transition”

“A U.S. Air Force library plans to stage a gay pride-themed storytime on Thursday and is promoting a list of books for children that advocate gender transition in commemoration of Pride month, according to the library’s website.”

“The library urges readers to “show your pride and celebrate Rainbow Book Month and Pride Month” with curated titles aimed at children and teens telling stories of young children and teenagers adopting different gender identities on their own, according to the reading list.”

“Books show us every color of the rainbow,” the website states.

“The pride story hour is scheduled for the same time slot as the library’s usual family story time. A calendar for the library’s summer programs notes that “Family Story Times” featuring activities “for the whole family” are held weekly at 10:30 a.m. on Thursdays at Ramstein.”

“One book on the library’s reading list, “Julián Is A Mermaid,” tells the story of a young boy who begins dressing as a mermaid after seeing three dazzling women mermaids in public, according to a description by Common Sense Media. His grandmother ignores him initially, but by the end of the story she takes him to a “parade” reminiscent of a pride parade where everyone is dressed as a mermaid.”

“Others, such as “Jacob’s Room To Choose” and “I’m Not A Girl,” feature young main characters who adopt different “gender expressions” and persuade their schools and teachers to accept the idea of gender nonconformity, according to descriptions linked by the library.”


“The Ramstein library links to the Department of Defense’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation library hosted on a third party platform for a description of “It Feels Good To Be Yourself.”

“Some people are boys. Some people are girls. Some people are both, neither, or somewhere in between,” the description reads. “This sweet, straightforward exploration of gender identity will give children a fuller understanding of themselves and others.”

“A pride event for toddlers is completely inappropriate in any venue,” Republican Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, who sits on the House Armed Services Committee, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “To hold one at a U.S. military base is a partisan abuse of taxpayer dollars and a slap in the face to military families.”

The Irony…

“Monastery Investigating Priest for Giving Anti-LGBTQ+ Christmas Homily”

“A monastery in Germany has begun investigating one of its members over an anti-LGBTQ+ homily delivered in December, while the local bishop offered his own condemnation of the priest’s remarks.”

“Preaching at Mass on Christmas Eve, Fr. Joachim Wernersbach, OSB, condemned LGBTQ+ people in extreme language. The priest, who served as temporary pastor at the parish where he gave the homily, referred to “strange modern currents” to which he objected.”

“‘You hear about gender and transgender, about transhumanism and reproductive health, about wokeness and LGBTIQ, about diversity and identity, about multiple genders and gender reassignment, and about this devastating new revelational understanding of the synodal path.’ Even the terms are absolutely strange and they all have one thing in common, because they lack beauty, coherence and naturalness. And further: ‘They are not in tune, not in harmony with the unimaginably beautiful divine order. A great dissonance has broken over our country.'”

“Wernersbach also wished “extra-great joy” to opponents of LGBTQ+ families for refusing to follow such “harmful modern currents.”

“The priest’s Christmas homily, which for a time was available on YouTube until being removed, prompted backlash from the local community. Theresia Kliemank and Antonia Lippitsch launched an online petition to the parish council, signed by 500-plus people before being closed. In Kliemank’s words, the priest’s statements “have no place in a Christmas Mass” and are “very discriminatory and exclusionary.”

I wonder what the Military’s all over the world are thing about this. Ain’t had all this shit back in 1963 when I joined up


Pointing and laughing.




Nuhn-unh. I was told the military wasn’t going woke, It was a complete invention by the right..


To Each His/Her/They Own…😉😎


I recall a time in my ute as an Air Force brat at March AFB, when the tower had PRIDE spelled out on it, and the term was on everything. At that time, it stood for Professional Results In Daily Efforts. Not so much anymore.


Sarge, I can’t attack that hill, I just got my nails done and I’m meeting

Fire up the wood chippers!

Drag problems call for drag solutions?

Do one in front of kids get the other behind a truck?


How does Drag shows (I was always led to believe that most drag queens were straight) and LGBT rights go together? Not so much a question as a statement here: if fighting for LGBT rights and drag shows for kids tend to bring so much bad press, is it helping the cause? maybe time to rethink the strategy?!?! 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Next, if they have their opinion on the subject, and mine is the opposite, why do I have to be the one that’s wrong for not agreeing with them? How come they’re not the ones that are wrong for not agreeing with me? Why do I have to change my feelings and beliefs to placate or pacify them?

Leads to my final statement- since So many people don’t agree with their thoughts/opinions, they are going to try to outflank us by recruiting our kids, to force us into submission.

It’s not equal treatment, it’s special treatment!


It’s all part of the plan. We’re seeing a lot of the + categories computer now in the LGBTQ+. Next will be the MAPs (Minor Attracted Persons), aka pedophiles being brought into the grouping.

Don’t believe me? Just remember that the same advocates would call you an uneducated bigot 10-15 years ago if you said the transgender mess was going to be their next push.
