That Hissing Sound That You Hear…

Are conservatives doing a slow boil.

The recent crowning of Missouri teen Tristan Young as homecoming queen at Oak Park High School in Kansas City has stirred a fiery debate online.

Young, a transgender student, was voted homecoming queen by her fellow students at her school, reportedly winning over four other cisgender candidates. This marks the second occasion a transgender student has been elected homecoming queen at this school — the first being in 2015, according to multiple reports.
And of course you know the right-wing is having a hissy-fit over it!
Chaya Raichik, who operates the Libs of TikTok account on X, formerly known as Twitter, has targeted transgender people repeatedly with the account, which commands an audience of over 2.5 million followers. Raichik vehemently criticized Young’s victory, resorting to scornful and transphobic language.

Raichik took it further in a deeply dehumanizing post featuring a photo of Young alongside the other homecoming queen contestants. She used this photo to mock and target the teenage girl, writing, “One of these people is a male with an adam’s apple who won homecoming queen in @NKCSchools and 4 others are young girls who had their dreams crushed by a man. Can you guess which one is a male?”
Why is she so violently against her?

The students voted her, they have no problems with her being Homecoming Queen, why does she? She has nothing to do with the school she is just an outside agitator stirring up trouble.
These assertions have raised considerable eyebrows, given that Raichik, 28, insists on presenting herself as a protector of children and is going after a teenager.
What’s it to them? They don’t even know her but they are tearing her apart. They are creating animosity toward a person who just want to live their life… leave us alone!
Standing in defense of Young, an individual underscored their personal experience with Young during their school years, vehemently rejecting the idea that any narrative indoctrinated Young. “Oak Park High School was my Alma Mater. Tristan Young was my friend. I can tell you from experience that Tristan Young wasn’t indoctrinated by a narrative. She was the nicest person I’ve ever had the pleasure of performing with. You have no idea what the f*ck you’re talking about,” they wrote, responding to a bigoted comment about the transgender teen.
The children know.

What all these right-wingers know is that children growing up alongside a trans person, a lesbian, or a gay person will see though all these lies about us… and they will be voting! And that is what these conservatives fear that they will reject their hatemongering.

  1. Yay! I also commented on Tristan Young's victory in my blog. Despite the AG's blathering, the students said "(blank) you" and voted for her anyway. I also enjoyed Beau's commentary. Thank you!
