Social media was not nice to the party, with comments including, “Party of pedos” and “EVIL INC.”
Yet another comment was, “So this is an admission that drag shows may involve indecent exposure to minors. How else could it be seen as targeting them?”
A report published in the Post Millennial said the Colorado House voted over the weekend on HB23-1135, which would increase the punishment for indecent exposure in front of a minor to a class 6 felony.
“And 27 Democrats voted against the bill, with one saying she was concerned it would lead to the ban of drag shows,” the report explained.
It was state Rep. Leslie Herod who claimed, “These types of laws have been used to ban drag shows, to target individuals who use the restroom of the sex that they identify with—a public restroom—to charge them with felony charges. I am very concerned about the attacks against the transgender community that are happening across the country.”
She continued, “When I initially read this bill, it did not even come to mind for me, either, as an advocate—but as I’ve looked at the bills, and as I’ve talked to my colleagues who are fighting these types of bills across the country, it’s very clear to me that the language is very much mirrored in some of the laws that have been used to target members of our community because of who they are.”
Colorado House Republicans posted a notification that the bill eventually did pass, with amendments, with 37 votes in support from the legislative body.

The current law classifies a first offense of indecent exposure to a minor a class 1 misdemeanor.
Roger D. Hudson, the deputy chief of staff for the Colorado House GOP, explained that the day before the vote, Colorado House Democrats “filibustered for nearly three hours … AGAINST felonizing #IndecentExposure to minors.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: Although millions of American parents send their precious children off to public school every day, imagining their kids’ days will be filled with reading, writing, arithmetic, science, history, sports and music, they’re not only in for a shock – but for total BETRAYAL. Today’s “public” (government) schools have become far-left ideological, political and religious indoctrination centers aimed at reprogramming and transforming America’s children.
Kids are being taught to HATE their own country and to see themselves and their parents as racists – or victims of racists. They are sexualized and corrupted, and many are groomed into the dark LGBT world, with almost 6,000 schools prohibiting parents from even hearing about their child’s transgender “transition.” In between all the far-left indoctrination and sexual corruption, teachers take time to scare children to death about the near-term end of life on earth due to “catastrophic climate change.” Another lie. But it’s all classic Marxism/communism, with even the “3 R’s” – reading, writing and arithmetic – now being corrupted with “woke,” “1984”-style madness.
Perhaps never has the true threat of today’s U.S. public school system been exposed as in the sensational April issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREATEST BETRAYAL: How Marxism and madness have taken over America’s public school system.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
