Skip to comments.Drag Syndrome: The Sexual Exploitation of Persons With Down Syndrome — Anna Bohach

What happens when you cross a deviant misogynistic sexual fetish with people who are intellectually disabled? You get a sexually exploitative nightmare that is the equivalent to a turn-of-the-century freak show.
As the mother of a son with Down Syndrome, I am all too aware of the challenges my son will face. Mostly, I am afraid of how other people will treat him. Even before he was born, he was discriminated against for having an extra chromosome. I was encouraged by the medical community to abort him. The world sees him as a burden and I just see him as my beautiful son. Usually, when I hear about people who have Down Syndrome breaking barriers and making waves I am cheering them on and celebrating their success with enthusiasm and support. But I cannot fathom how anyone can celebrate and promote Drag Syndrome. It would be the same as supporting and celebrating Down Syndrome sex work or Down Syndrome pornography.
Drag Syndrome is a drag troupe started in London by Daniel Vais, a drag performer and choreographer. He has gathered up a group of men with Down Syndrome and exposed them to the dark world of drag. Daniel Vais is a carnival barker intent on mocking women and sexually exploiting mentally disabled men. All one has to do is visit the Drag Syndrome Instagram page to see sexually exploitative pictures and language such as telling people to cum to their shows.

“Hey, we feature Drag Queen Story Hour!”
“Oh, yeah? Hold muh beer . . .”
What about all my tard porn?
Abuse of the developmentally disabled is a crime is it not?
If not, it should be, over here, as well as in the UK, where this crap is taking place.
Does the PING! represent a punch in the face? Never mind. Punch in the gut.
One thing that also sets them apart is their inclusion of Down Syndrome characters, played very effectively by Down Syndrome actors. The acting abilities of these actors and actresses is at the same level as their fellow cast members. And the characters they portray are sometimes key to the plot lines. In other words, not just "token" inclusions. And so far I've seen no hint in any of the plots of the "tolerant" Liberal "should have been aborted" Eugenic evil.
This story is of course evil and horrifying, albeit in today's age not that surprising. But there are things (like actual stage trained people who can act and aren't vapid empty headed pretty faces) that American TV and movies can learn from the Brits. It's not a coincidence, for example, that about half or more of the "American" 101st Airborne soldiers portrayed in Band of Brothers were Brits and Irish actors. And treating Down Syndrome people as human beings worthy of life and respect, at least in their dramas, is another far more praise worthy practice.
Not surprising that people with Downs would be abused in this way. After all in many countries like the US they are aborted >90% of the time. So they are treated in a utilitarian fashion by many if they are lucky enough to be born. Sick.
Taking advantage of these vulnerable “children” explains why HELL is what it is:
“There shall be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
“The blackness of darkness FOREVER.”
“And in HELL he opened his eyes being in torment.”
The place is real and some folks are foolishly making reservations.
Thank you for that post, as a partial antidote to this abusive perversion.
I am writing both Down’s and Autistic characters into my science-fiction novel, and not as mere tokens. I have had some dealing with both, in past ministry, and as a nutritionist, but I need to do much more research to do them justice.
As for the other point:
Many of the best actors and actresses in Hollywood have always been Brits - and they often are playing Americans. Some never really pretend to speak like an authentic American - Errol Flynn, Cary Grant - but many do so very convincingly.
As my friend, who taught Fine Arts long ago, once said to me: The British really study the art of acting, going back to Shakespeare, while too many Americans either just play themselves or opt for the so-called Method Acting. (See Laurence Olivier to Marlon Brando on that score. NB: Olivier was not my favorite screen actor, but he was certainly a gifted stage actor.)
Because they study it as a craft, because they live in a small and rich linguistic environment, and because they are exposed to so many American films and shows, they usually are better with accents than Yanks. Some betray no vestige of a British accent to my ear, while many Yanks who play a Brit fall short (sometimes embarrassingly so: Kevin Costner).
I watched a movie a couple of weeks ago. All the characters were American; all the actors were English or Australian. But Irish, Welsh, Scot, New Zealander, Canadian - it doesn’t matter. Most of them can out-act the average American film actor, even while using an American accent. Hollywood - setting aside the major moral and political issues - is really a multi-national industry united by one thing: the English language.
My favorite actor, Patrick McGoohan, although technically an American (born in New York), lived in various parts of the British Isles in his formative years, and could assume virtually any quasi-British accent. (Orson Welles was in awe of the man’s acting ability and stage presence, before he became famous on television as Danger Man.)
And they are often the victims of forcible rape.
