(LifeSiteNews) — During its “Pride Night” game Saturday evening, the National Hockey League’s (NHL) San Jose Sharks tweeted pro-LGBT propaganda instead of real-time updates about its matchup against the New York Islanders.
The Sharks’ social media team released a brief statement ahead of the game that announced its intention to “offer information and facts about LGBTQIA+ topics” in place of score changes and video highlights.
“Our hope is that this content will serve as a reminder that there are issues more important than goals, highlights, and wins,” the statement read. “Hockey is not for everyone until everyone is comfortable playing, working, or being a fan of this incredible game.”
Many of the tweets referenced various statistics, such as LGBT youth struggling with suicidal thoughts or feeling “uncomfortable” or “unsafe” in locker rooms. One of the most bizarre threads, however, provided alleged examples of how “other cultures” perceive the “existence” of a “third,” “fourth,” or even “fifth gender.”
One tweet read: “The muxe gender is a respected third gender in Zapotec cultures in Oaxaca, Mexico that has existed for centuries. Gunaa are those who were born as men but who identify as women & are attracted to men. The Nguii are those who were born as men and are attracted to other men.”
Another read: “The Ninauposkitzipxpe were honored as a third gender in the North Peigan tribe of the Blackfoot Confederacy in northern Montana and Southern Alberta, Canada.”
In some Native American cultures, the umbrella term to describe a third gender is “two-spirit.” In South Asia, it’s hijras. In Thailand, it’s kathoeys. In Ethiopia, it’s ashtime. In Polynesia, it’s fa’afafine. And many more.

Also ahead of the “Pride Night” game, Sharks goaltender James Reimer announced that he would not wear an LGBT “Pride” jersey for pregame warm-ups, citing his Christian beliefs. Reimer’s statement was shared on Twitter by the Sharks’ social media team.
“For all 13 years of my NHL career, I have been a Christian — not just in title, but in how I choose to live my life daily,” he said. “In this specific instance, I am choosing not to endorse something that is counter to my personal convictions which are based on the Bible, the highest authority in my life.”

With Drag Queens now targeting babies in a quest to normalize their degeneracy, it's time for our lawmakers to ensure children in society are legally protected from this grooming.
SIGN: Drag Shows for children must be outlawed

"Burlesque for Babies" is the latest depraved iteration of the Drag Queen Story Hours that have targeted children across the western world.
This involves woke parents taking their babies and toddlers to watch grown men, invariably wearing high-heels, make-up and little else, dance inappropriately for attention, gratification, money and grooming.
If you don't believe us, just watch what this pro-LGBT commentator has to say (WARNING - graphic content):
This is nothing less than grooming - an attempt by perverted men to sexualize children with erotic dancing.
SIGN & SHARE: Lawmakers must end the grooming of children by Drag Queens
How else can we describe half-naked men “twerking” in front of babies, if not by calling it "grooming"?
Aside from the degenerate men wanting to sexually perform for children, the other major culprits are of course the parents who bring their children to see them, tacitly endorsing the bondage outfits and overt perversion to allow these drag queens fulfill their sadomasochistic dreams with children.
Any adult who wants to be naked, or close to naked, in front of children is an immediate threat to young people, which is why lawmakers must do everything to combat this degeneracy before it's normalized.
Normalization is, of course, the goal of the LGBTQ movement, and that's why we have to push back now.

The Sharks organization released its own “Pride Night” statement that hinted at Reimer’s decision to forgo the celebration.
“As we promote these standards, we also acknowledge and accept the rights of individuals to express themselves, including how or whether they choose to express their beliefs, regardless of the cause or topic,” the statement read. “As an organization, we will not waver in our support of the LGBTQIA+ community and continue to encourage others to engage in active allyship.”
Ultimately, the Sharks lost the game 4-1, and they sit at the very bottom of their division, as well as 31st out of 32 teams in the league.

“Pride Night” has been a source of controversy on multiple occasions during the NHL season. In January, Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov refused to wear a “Pride” jersey on account of his Russian Orthodox beliefs. Although Provorov’s coach and many fans defended him, numerous NHL commentators angrily condemned his decision, with one in particular suggesting Provorov should “go back” to Russia and “maybe get involved” in the Ukraine war.
There have also been two occasions where entire teams — the New York Rangers in January, and the Minnesota Wild earlier this month — failed to wear LGBT-themed jerseys during “Pride Night.” The Rangers boast multiple Russian players, and Wild superstar foward Kirill Kaprizov ran into difficulties returning to the United States after visiting his native Russia during the 2022 offseason.
