During a recent episode of her show, she spoke out against the idea of drag shows being performed in front of young children, calling them deeply disturbing.
While acknowledging that there are adult-oriented drag shows that are entertaining, she insisted that parents need to be aware of what their children are being exposed to.
“What happens is if you introduce s*xual behavior, and like s*xual references, just s*xualization in front of children too young, it gets them used to it. It lures the child into that behavior. So it is a problem, Charlize. Believe me.”
Even though Theron’s eldest child has transitioned from male to female, Kelly maintained that Theron should still be opposed to exposing children to such content.
