Libraries Becoming Private Child Corruption Centers?
Linda Harvey, Mission America
It’s bad enough that some libraries encourage little children to perch on the laps of transvestite males as they hear fables about well-adjusted homosexual families, in the so-called “Drag Queen Story Hours” featured in some communities.

And then those guys turn out to be convicted child molesters, as recently happened in Houston.
But other libraries have devised another method for mental molestation of youth. Middle and high-schoolers are invited to a private “safe space” session with a garishly -dressed she-male to explore what “drag” is all about. And adults are excluded—until the public hears and cries “foul.”
It’s happening in Delaware County, Ohio, an affluent suburb north of Columbus. And taxpayers are putting up quite a fuss. A June 5 session called “Drag 101” is advertised on the teen page of the Delaware County Library website, and here’s how the announcement reads:
“Drag 101—Teen Program. Curious about the art of drag and no idea where to start? Come learn the basics with former Miss Gay Ohio America, Selena T. West! All genders welcome; drag is for everyone! Teens only, please.”
What-- no parents? And why not adults? One’s suspicions are heightened immediately over any program for a 13- year-old to be unsupervised in a private space with a man who likes to dress as a woman.
And in a taxpayer-funded library, no less.
Talking Points to OPPOSE Senate Bill 11
Ohio's Radical "Sexual Orientation"/"Gender Identity" Bill
1.All citizens in Ohio are already protected against discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, disability, age, religion, national origin, ancestry, familial status in housing, military status and retaliation.
Do we need more of this proud lifestyle?
There is no need for protections based on sexual behavior or discomfort with one’s anatomy. These are personal preferences and attitudes, not “rights,” and where such legislation has passed, there’s a track record of harming the freedom, status and current rights of other people.
2. Sexual orientation and gender identity encompass ever-changing definitions, which means moving points of legality. There is no clear evidence these are inborn traits and much evidence these are fluid, changeable preferences. So these terms do not deserve legal protection and have proven so broad that inevitably, they become a tool to suppress free speech, freedom of religion, and well-established rights of others.
3. Homosexual behavior and gender confusion are highly controversial, with demonstrated health and social risks, and millions of Ohioans have deep concerns about validating these identities and behaviors, especially when impressionable children might be taught to accept them inaccurately as normal and uncomplicated.
4. People of many faiths have objections to homosexual behavior and gender confusion. Mandating Ohio’s embrace of these behaviors puts people of faith at best, in difficult positions and at worst, in jeopardy of losing jobs, businesses, parental authority and more.
