The problem with just posting a link, Max, is that people like me aren’t going to waste our valuable time reading something that may not be of any interest to us whatsoever.

A second problem is that we don’t know your views on whatever matters the linked article raises. As this is a forum, it might be a good idea to post your views.

Let’s picture this not being drag queens, but something else…:thinking:

NRA story time.
Catholic Saint story time.
Republican story time.
Pro-Life story time.

Would we see this happening, or would it immediately be shut down?

But Drag queen story time is okay. :flushed:

They tried it at a library an hour from where we live and it was a big old mess. The library board acted like it was perfectly fine and there shouldn’t have been any disagreement with them having it. But I do believe it ended up being moved to another facility because people did not want their taxes paying for things like this to take place at the library.

It’s a dumb idea, but I don’t really want to hear any more about it than I have to.

Sickening. I used to work at my local library. Never saw anything so disgusting before, but I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out if anything happens. A local high school started promoting pornographic books and a group of Catholics has already begun a lawsuit.

Build robust church libraries.

Apparently Drag Queen Story Hour is not just a local organization, it seems pretty well organized. Here is it’s website.

Personally, I think libraries can do just fine without drag queens reading to children.

The area where I live is slightly left-of-center politically, and I say that because Democrats win a little more than half the elections, but Republicans have a robust presence.

I was really surprised that the next town over from me had a drag queen story hour.
But it’s one of the few subscription libraries left in the country, so maybe their decision making is different…

The administrators and management of public libraries tend to be liberal. They view it as their mission to promote and represent their liberal views against what people actually want.

It was a big success in North Conway New Hampshire with many(50 plus) showing up to support.

Was stopped at another library in NH but then they switched to teens to make it more palatable and it went on.

Northeast has many because of Massachusetts. This area is very LGBT political and very well organized.

Libraries have been corrupted for years but the sad part is mothers need them because they do programs for toddlers for free and in the cold of winter it is a warm place for kids to socialize.

As a member of our local town library board, I could not see us sponsoring this type of program–it would potentially be too divisive for our community. However, we should respect the intellectual and cultural diversity a library can offer community members through its books, media and programs. We have all kinds of groups and individuals access our services—home-schoolers, senior citizens, stay at home moms, families, etc. And our library collection should inspire, inform and entertain our patrons!

Not just okay, but celebrated, encouraged, and praised. One can only feel sorry and pray for the clueless parents, and more so their unfortunate children, who attend these acts of horror. They must think they are part of some great liberating movement, some defining epoch of human anthropology, just aching to attend these events and share the experience on social media so their friends and family can just see how tolerant and open minded they are.
