Facebook Keeps Killing Moms’ Group Dedicated to Ending Drag Queen Story Hour

(Lifesite News) A Facebook group started by a woman dedicated to ending Drag Queen Story Hour was kicked off Facebook this week for the third time.

Anna Hall Bohach, founder of 500 Mom Strong, told LifeSiteNews yesterday that the grassroots group’s Facebook page was removed on Monday, June 1 because it was deemed “transphobic,” just like the other 500 Mom Strong pages Facebook had previously removed. The first page, also called 500 Mom Strong, disappeared last July 19. The second, 500 Mom Stronger, was taken down this February.

“The pages were very effective at getting our message out,” Bohach said. 

“We had a large reach with a lot of traffic on our pages.”

The first page had over 2000 followers and 1000 likes. The second and third pages had about the same number of followers, Bohach said, only with 750 and then 440 likes.  

The pages received many comments and shares, she added. The organizer said that most comments were positive, but that there were also trolls who would leave negative comments. 

500 Mom Strong still has a private “group” account on Facebook with 485 followers. 

LifeSiteNews covered 500 Mom Strong’s first protest against Drag Queen Story Hour last June 15, and also its first banishment from Facebook. Bohach then described 500 Moms Strong as a group of women tired of Drag Queen Story Hour’s (DQSH) sexualization of children and mockery of femininity. 

[DQSH]  is misogyny,” she wrote. “Drag queens are very offensive to women. They are grotesque hypersexualized caricatures of women. They mock women and debase our womanhood and femininity. A drag queen is no different than a racist donning black face.”

Since then, Bohach reports, the group has had a fruitful year, receiving news coverage, thanks even to their fiercest critics.
