From Publisher’s Weekly:
The controversy began in February when two patrons complained that the library’s YA section included fiction and nonfiction books about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues. The patrons accused the library of promoting “the overt indoctrination of the gay agenda in our community” and demanded that the library add books “affirming traditional heterosexual perspectives.”
The books that the fundies wanted banned include Stephan Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Esther Drill’s Deal With It! A Whole New Approach to Your Body, Brain and Life as a gURL, and It’s Perfectly Normal, a book on puberty and sexuality, which contains the following text: “Some people disapprove of gay men and lesbian women…. Usually these people know little or nothing about homosexuals, and their views are often based on fears or misinformation, not facts.”
Tranny children’s book publisher Seven Stories Press (see one of their books at right, which is about a little M2F trans boy who dreams of beautiful dresses) has issued a call to action, getting predictably and justifiably righteous about a taxpayer-funded library “protecting” children from books that say being gay is OK.
We’re really wicked tired of this bullshit and maybe someday these people will get tired of hearing themselves shout because BLUE STATES WIN! BLUE STATES WIN!
