Times are a changin’

Overheard on a G train, Sunday, Brooklyn NY

A dad explaining to his son and daughter that “the world has changed, you can be anything you want to be these days, there’s nothing wrong with that” when they asked why there were five men dressed as ladies in the carriage. He touched his daughter’s cheek and said “they want to be like you”.

The lead drag queen thanked the father for encouraging his children to understand and not judge others.

Then the other hideous, screetchy drag queens with bad wigs ruined the moment by swearing (F and C words) in front of the children, calling each other beATCHes before toddling off in their heels into the real world.
