Converse, Chips Ahoy market ‘trans’ agenda, feature child Desmond, who teaches how to do drugs

As the LGBT community grows and adopts the transgender movement, morphing from gender dysphoria into a mainstream gender identity, some companies are jumping onboard to earn some identity politics points.

Converse announced that they have “partnered” with folks “connected to the LGBTQ+ community” to promote their new line of shoes known as the company’s “Pride Collection.”

Desmond Napoles, 11, a self-procliamed “drag kid” who goes by “Desmond is Amazing,” is one of the featured promoters.

“We’re happy to launch our Pride Collection, partnering with six individuals connected to the LGBTQ+ community who show the power of expressing one’s true self,” Converse posted in a tweet.

The company’s site showcases a signature rainbow shoe for Desmond, who is labeled as “Drag Kid/LGBTQ+ Advocate,” with the quote: “There is no normal.”

“What started as a rebellious fight for equality has since grown into a loud, proud assertion of true self-expression,” reads the site’s Pride Collection page. “Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pride with a glitter-dipped collection of parade-worthy sneakers, including our first-ever trans flag design. Because equal rights are for everyone.”

“Let’s spread a message of love together and shout a little louder,” the page also reads.

Transgender studies have shown that as much as 96% “hurt themselves” or have high levels of mental health issues.

Desmond goes viral with ‘Everyone can do drugs’ video

A video circulating online appears Desmond sitting with an adult dressed in drag, and demonstrating how to snort ketamine.

“Anyone can do drugs,” famed transgender youth Desmond the Amazing said. “Everyone can do drugs. Your mom can do drugs.”

The video appears to be a question and answer session with viewers of a live stream.

“What his this world come to?” Desmond said later in the video. “It’s come to a world where drag kids actually exist.”

“And people do ketamine on a couch,” the other person added. Check out the clip below.

Ketamine is a strong anesthetic drug which was commonly known as a horse tranquilizer, but is now used in human anesthesia.

“This child needs to be removed from his parents. He is an abuse victim. This is horrific,” The Daily Wire commentator Matt Walsh said on Twitter.

Desmond made headlines last year for announcing a “drag house for kids”

Chips Ahoy! promoted “drag moms” for Mother’s Day

Chips Ahoy! promoted “drag moms” and drag queens in a Mother’s Day advertisement featuring a drag queen named “Vanessa Vanjie Mateo” calling for everybody to thank their mothers and “Get These Cookies.”

“I am so thankful to have a mother like mine who supports me through all my craziness and loves on me buys me Chips Ahoy cookies — chewy, the original — everything under the sun, my mama knows I love my cookies — so get those cookies,” Mateo said.

“So what’s the sweet gesture for you to do to your mama? Your real mama – your drag mama, which ever mama…”
