The 31st season of the popular celebrity dance competition “Dancing With The Stars” is set to air September 19, and will break history again with its inclusion of...a drag queen. Because God forbid a TV show air without shoving progressive gender and sexual ideologies.

D.J. “Shangela” Pierce, a 40-year-old man who performed as a singer in “RuPaul’s Drag Race, will be paired with professional dancer Gleb Savencho. I certainly hope he'll be in ballgowns and not mini-skirts. 

We're apparently in for a treat, as this is the first-ever drag queen competitor for "Dancing With The Stars." Can’t wait to sit on the edge of my seat worrying about this man’s junk falling out of his leotard. 

“I feel so grateful and have not missed out on how momentous this is. And I want to rise to the occasion, baby,” Shangela told USA Today

He also explained how he’s making history with his debut. 

This is something totally different because I'm a drag entertainer who will be standing up there. On the dancing nights, I'm going to be dressed as the doll, honey. That's my fiercest form as an entertainer. When I'm in drag, my pronouns are she/her. So seeing a drag queen with a male dancer is going to be something powerful. This is going to be a great space and an amazing platform to showcase that kind of representation.

The cringe level just keeps getting worse.

The show’s executive producer, Conrad Black, called the casting “a step for the show” that’s “reflecting the world of entertainment and the modern world.” He also called Shangela a “fantastically engaging personality,” USA Today reported. 

The only thing this “fantastically engaging personality” is reflecting is that DWTS is just another group that allowed the woke mob to infiltrate its show quality. 

Last season, DWTS caused controversy when JoJo Siwa danced with another woman in the competition. Siwa identifies as gay, and though there have been other gay contestants, none of them felt the need to vomit their gayness by dancing with a same-sex partner. But, today’s woke crowd is a dfferent breed of woke who think that if their progressivism isn’t being shouted from a megaphone, then it isn’t loud enough. 

This season seems to be the season of firsts for DWTS, as the series will now air on Disney+ instead of its former network, ABC. 

Great, another non-family-friendly show airing on a so-called “family-friendly” platform. How wonderful. 

I don’t know what my plans are for September 19, but I sure as heck know it won’t include watching this.
