Rep. Lauren Boebert may not like being mentioned alongside her unhinged colleague, Marjorie Taylor Greene, but the Colorado Republican appears to have no trouble making a fool of herself all on her own.
Boebert took to social media to parrot the Right’s favorite, newly-revived talking point — that LGBTQ people are “groomers.” Re-tweeting a trailer for the upcoming Discovery+ reality series Generation Drag posted by the conservative Libs of TikTok account, Boebert wrote, “Siri, define grooming.”

Generation Drag is produced by Tyra Banks and follows five teenagers and their families as they prepare for the biggest drag performances of their lives at Dragutante, a drag ball for queer teens in Colorado. The series offers an intimate look at the aspiring young performers as they navigate their true identities and embrace their inner drag divas.
In other words, the only grooming it might feature is the painstaking process of getting glitter out of a wig.
“I have such admiration and respect for these teens,” Banks said in a press release. “They are bravely navigating coming into their own in a world that can be very challenging and not always accepting. What is so beautiful is seeing their parents and siblings supporting them.”
Boebert likely thought she was being clever by implying the trailer presents a definition of grooming, but all she proved is she’s the one who needs help defining the term.
Commenters were more than happy to assist, with more than a few bringing up that time her husband was arrested for exposing himself to a minor in a bowling alley:
That is not grooming. Grooming is when an adult man exposes himself to a teenage girl, convinces her that is normal behavior, and then she marries him.

This is what Siri defines grooming as.
The second definition sounds more like something Jayson might be into. pic.twitter.com/bLA0VgAqIG

I do not believe she is smart enough to have passed the GED test!
I thought that was obvious.
She flunked the GED exam twice before finally passing it the third time.
Betcha someone gave her the answers.
I think Maria Bartiromo gave her the answers.
Boebert’s husband exposed himself to underaged girls at a bowling alley. She was right there when he did it, he got arrested, and she still married the guy.

You should clock Pru Baker’s tweet, they have a list much longer of Republican felons.
@BennyTheHill that’s an unsurprisingly long list! I remember the Christopher Wright case in Georgia, particularly the outcome. Pleaded no contest and got 20 years probation. I’m no Qanon conspiracy theorist, but I see where they get the idea of a pedophile network among politicians.
Aww Benny, you do know you can do the same thing for Politically Influential Republicans as well? It’s not that hard. But then again pumpkin, you are the partisan cut and paste queen. You do you Boo, it’s not like we all don’t see you for what you are. It’s actually rather amusing how hard you try, yet always fall so short.
Now list the GQP pedos! It’s quite a long list!!!
Starting with former Speaker of the House Denny Hastert, who the GQP chose as its leader for years!
And let’s not forget, Jeffrey Epstein was a close personal friend of Don the Con, your beloved cult leader, and praised his buddy fulsomely. His buddy Epstein also died in a prison under Don the Con’s jurisdiction under very strange circumstances!
But give us the GQP list, if you’re not a coward. It’s very long!
Off topic, dork. None of these have anything to do with lgbtq grooming anyone. Something they just don’t do. Unless you have a confession to make.
Anyone who has visited this website at least 3 or 4 times knows that you’re completely nuts. Unable to think critically, unable to filter information, unable to discern reality from conspiracy theories.
Your comments don’t matter. You are an irrelevant person.
Are you going to defend these pedophiles too, or do you just defend the republican ones?
Well, nobody’s perfect.
Would anyone here even care about this topic if it weren’t being presented as a Red vs. Blue match up?
Our politics have been nothing but empty theater to get our attention and stock our worst tendencies for DECADES now, and Queerty is feeding into it by continuing to cover Boebert, Greene, Hawley, and Cawthorne. They’re all extreme examples of the fascist creep in the GOP that would prefer to stoke partisan culture wars than discuss policy and the need for better, more proportional representation. Because neither the Democratic nor Republican base are happy with their diminishing quality of life and historic loss of buying power.
It’s not the 1800s any more. We have the technical capacity to have more direct representation than the systems devised during a time when it took days of grueling travel for representatives in the untamed Western state of Ohio to reach D.C. We need to expand Congress to better represent our growing population.
We have build an AMERICAN identity since the ratification of the Constitution. Unless it’s being stoked by someone with a partisan benefit to reap, Americans don’t put themselves at odds over which state they were born in, because we know that we’re all Americans. The nature of the Constitution means that we’re all American because we CHOOSE to follow the same principals of governance of, by, and for the people, with no kings or other inherited titles to rulership and political power.
The American government belongs to the American people. Yes, it’s easier for the son of a corporate board member to get into office after getting their legacy admission to an Ivy League school with mediocre educational achievement. But it’s also possible for a bartender from Queens to pound the pavement, meet with communities and win a seat in the House. It’s possible for the radical upstart of one generation to become the American Civil Rights icon of the future generations.
This is America. It is an hot mess. And there is more turmoil on the horizon, as there ever will be. But we are exceptional when we come together to look towards a better future full of possibilities rather than being chained down by our past.
Well hello, I am back from a short holiday and see @BTH Copy & Paste Queen, is still at it! Completely off topic as usual. Gawd gurl give it up and get a life.
Here’s a nice short list for you BennyTheShrill
Gee Benny it makes me wonder why you seem so obsessed with this subject.
Yeah. That’s a lot of time and effort. No one is going to win the only Democrats or only Republicans are sexual predators debate, but sure, go for it. I can only imagine how miserable it would be to be one of these people who’s life is centered on this political oneupmanship — or more appropriately, onedownmanship.
Let’s see if BennyBarryMarcyJamesHart gives us the GQP list! So many to choose from!
Come on, girl, use those fingers and get to Googling!
The GQP list is so long, it would feel like a super dick move to copy-paste it here.
But I really wanna.
The son on right in the Christmas tree gun photo looks just like one of the guys in “Heartstopper.”
Whenever trumpubliQans accuse Democrats of nefarious activities, you can be absolutely certain that they’re projecting their own dark corners onto other people. The list is endless, from voter fraud (virtually all prosecuted and documented cases of voter fraud are committed by republicans trying to cheat for trump) to censorship (only one party is advocating book-bans and government-mandated speech police) to pedophiles, sexual predators, and hypocritical kinkiness, the Rs win the prize.
Bobble head need to clean up her own house! how many guns do those underage kids have close , and a fact husband showed young ladies at lol bowling, his mini dick, wow Grooming LOL Heal your own Bobble head
She would know all about grooming since she has been since her husband showed his wang to her
It’s obviously a game of taunting the readers on Queerty that Benny loves most. Don’t you think? That’s his high and many on here seem to fall into his baiting. Why is that?
I prefer to ignore the idiot but it does cause me some concern that people here seem to get so aggravated by such an obvious dimwit. This just feeds into his moronic diatribe. He loves it!
Fname Optional Lname
Poor Faux news lemming is so convinced the world is “us against them” he is missing out of the real world
i really question the sanity of some douchebag-republican-foxnews-parrot with a list of names compiled by republican criminologists thinking he could sway any independent thinkers on this site. it almost seems like don trump jr takes time out of his empty day (waiting for a jumpsuit) to come here and try to recruit some “guys”. the invisible group he talks to like an insane person. its not going very well junior, you come off angry that you never had the “stuff” that counts.
I was an elementary school teacher.
And yes I groomed them.
I groomed them to be loving, considerate, empathetic individuals.
Lucky the GOP hasn’t made that illegal. . . . . . yet
For anyone interested in the REPUBLICAN list, go to the following –

Scummy twat, I feel for her kids moms a crack GOP whore LOL
