Melissa Joskow / Media Matters Fox news anchor Martha MacCallum, whom the network touts as part of its purported “news”-side team, said “there’s a sexualization element to” Drag Queen Story Hour -- a national program of events in which drag queens read children’s books to kids at libraries, schools, and bookstores to help children “develop empathy, learn about gender diversity and difference, and tap into their own creativity." Her guest also claimed that drag queens and LGBTQ people are trying to “groom” children into an “unhealthy lifestyle,” citing HIV and AIDS. MacCallum’s segment is just the latest example of right-wing fearmongering about drag queens and children, which tends to subtly wink at myths that LGBTQ people harm young people or that they are sexual predators or pedophiles.
