Mashable hailed 12-year-old drag queen 'Desmond is Amazing' as 'the future'

Tech website Mashable has faced severe backlash after it hailed a 12-year-old drag queen as "the future."

The digital media site celebrated New York boy Desmond Napoles, aka "Desmond is Amazing," who they described as "inspiring."

Desmond has previously made headlines after video footage emerged from a late-night New York gay bar, showing the then-11-year-old boy dressed in women's clothing and dancing for adult men, who howled and threw money at him.

After the video went viral on social media and outrage ensued, the mother of the transgender child was reportedly paid a visit at her home by Child Protective Services.

The young boy's parents were being investigated by authorities for alleged child abuse, his mother Wendy Napoles confirmed via Instagram shortly afterward.

According to Mashable, however, Desmond is "inspiring" other children to follow his path in life.

While Mashable gives the boy’s age as “ten,” Desmond’s website states he is 12, according to Breitbart.

Mashable posted:

10-year-old drag superstar ‘Desmond is Amazing’ is in fact, amazing. The New York City drag kid is inspiring others left and right with his positive attitude to ‘be yourself always no matter what anyone says.’

Mashable adds that at his very young age, “Desmond has immersed himself with a handful of LGBTQ youth advocacy projects and is making one thing clear: Desmond is Amazing is the future and we’re here for it.”

According to Desmond and his website, he developed an interest in drag when he was only two when his mother watched RuPaul’s Drag Race on television.

His website states:

[H]e would stop playing with his toys in order to watch as well. He thought the drag queens were so amazing and beautiful, like princesses.

He made his professional drag debut in RuPaul’s Drag Race season 5 winner Jinkx Monsoon’s video for the “Bacon Shake” when he was just 7 years old. He continues to perform on stage and at events.

As Breitbart’s John Nolte reported in December 2018, the establishment media have celebrated Desmond is Amazing:

The Daily Beast and NBC News have both gushed over what can only be described as the sexual exploitation of a child.

According to LifeSite, “ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ (GMA) recently devoted a segment to the boy during which his cross-dressing was celebrated as an example of individuality, and his parents were praised for their support of his drag hobby.”

Desmond’s website states he is most inspired by “the feedback he receives from other ‘drag kids’ and LGBTQ+ youth.”

“Often times they describe how Desmond has helped them discover the importance of self-expression and gave them the courage to come out,” the site continues.

“It is this personal engagement with fans, which Desmond has coined his ‘Amazies,’ that motivates him to continue doing drag and advocacy work.”

However, nobody else was “here for it” in the same way as Mashable.

The post on Twitter from Mashable faced a universally negative response.

“This child is being exploited while his life is being destroyed,” one commenter wrote

“It is incredibly sad to see.” 

“Good to know you love child abuse” tweeted conservative pundit Sara Gonzalez, while fellow right-wing commentator Mark Dice simply replied“vomit.” 

Even former fans of Mashable saw the video as a step too far.

Unfortunately, Desmond’s schtick is just the tip of the iceberg.

In an age when transgender advocates support administering hormone-blocking drugs to prepubescent children and preteen girls lead leather-clad fetish fans through the streets in pride parades, such actions are continually being normalized by the liberal media.

Desmond can be “amazing” as he wants, without being sexually exploited, which his parents seem to allow.

And judging by the one-sided debate on Twitter, most Americans definitely don’t see drag and sexualization as the “future” for their children, no matter what liberal media outlets like Mashable say.
