What happened to librarians? In my day, the librarian was some old lady with giant glasses (from all the reading, donchaknow) a wool cardigan, orthopedic shoes, and would get lay down the wrath of Hades if you spoke above whisper.
Recently, it has come to my attention that librarians are, like, the wokest of The woke. I will admit, I don’t take my kids to the library very often but I recently made a trip and the first thing I saw was a rainbow flag, stuck right on the door. Uhhh, why?!!! This isn’t a night club, it’s a public library. I don’t think it needs to announce that it’s a gay friendly place. Now I’m going to go out on a limb and say that libraries have never really discriminated on anyone on the basis of sexual orientation. Mainly because it’s a library and sexual orientation would really only come up when asking about reading material and they are usually, they are discreet.
Ok, there is a gay flag sticker on the door of my public library in OCTOBER (not pride month) but it is the librarians that are also the ones who are pushing the drag queen story hours. A phenomenon…….that BLOWS MY MIND. I can’t think of ANY REASON…….AT ALL in which it would EVER be appropriate for a drag queen to read to toddlers or anyone under the age of 21.
I’ve been to a drag show or two in my day. I found them to be really bizarre but undoubtedly, sexual. They have no business in a Library for adults let alone kids. My question is,WHAT is up with the librarians? What is it about them that would allow them to think, that drag queens reading to kids and pushing gay crap IN THE CHILDREN’S SECTION (one of the reasons I don’t take my kids to the library, I’ve been burned in the past) is a good idea? I’m baffled. Maybe you can enlighten me.
