A 16-Year-Old Went To A Gay Bar With A Fake I.D. And Things Could’ve Ended Terribly If Not For This Drag Queen

Date rape drugs usually have no smell or taste, making them extremely difficult to spot. Especially if you’re a new, inexperienced bar or club visitor. Many years after it occurred, an anonymous tumblr user has come forward with a story about the horrific time a man slipped something into their drink in a gay establishment and dragged them outside and into his car. They were 16. Scroll down to read the story and remind yourself why you can never let your guard down. And remember, there are free hotlines that you can call 24 hours a day to get help if you have been sexually assaulted or if you need advice on how to leave an unhealthy relationship:

National Sexual Assault Hotline:
1-800-656-HOPE (1-800-656-4673)
National Domestic Violence Hotline:
1-800-799-SAFE ( 1-800-799-7233) or 1-800-787-3224 (TDD)
Girls and Boys Town National Hotline:
1-800-448-3000 or 1-800-448-1833 (TDD) (Facebook cover image: Hotlanta Voyeur)

People were quick to thank the drag queens

not to make light of the situation (I'm so glad the chap was saved, so sorry he went through that, and I wish this world were a better place), but I would so want to see a TV series, or movie where a group of drag queens go around like the A Team solving crimes, righting wrongs and beating the sh*t out of rapists

Steve, I'm already casting this show in my head. Bob the Drag Queen is in it, and Eureka, and Bianca Del Rio, and Trixie Matel, and Latrice Royale, and Katya, and Shangela....

Not all heroes wear capes, some wear false eyelashes, makeup and high heels and will beat the shit out of you if you deserve it. Boom!

You can buy nail polish that detects the date-rape drug.
