Librarians could face prosecution over “inappropriate” and “sexually explicit” books in kids’ section


The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the author. 

CAMPBELL COUNTY, WYOMING- Everyone is quite aware of the attempt to indoctrinate our children in far-left alphabet ideology.

For many Americans, what people do in the privacy of their own lives is none of their concern.

When that ideology is pushed in the direction of our most vulnerable, however that is when parents decide to speak out, precisely what is occurring in Wyoming.

Obviously, there are those who have religious or other objections to some ideology, which is their right as human beings.

People have the right to their personal opinions, or at least they used to. For the left however, and most conservatives knew this would be the case, enough is never enough…they always want more.

When gay marriage was allowed by the Supreme Court, it was thought by some among the ignorant masses that this would be enough. For those who know how the radical left like the back of their hands, it was clear this wouldn’t be enough.

And since that time, we have seen exactly what scenario unfold.

Now, employees at a Wyoming library are facing legal trouble after local residents complained to police about books at that library, which they claim are books about sex, LGBTQ… issues, and how babies are made prominently displayed in sections designed for children, Town Hall reports.

A local pastor named Susan Sisti raised concerns about the books, located at the Campbell County Public Library. Among the titles are “This Book is Gay” by Juno Dawson, “How Do You Make a Baby” by Anna Fiske, “Doing It” by Hanna Witton, “Sex is a Funny Word” by Corey Silverberg, and “Dating and Sex: A Guide for the 21st Century Teen Boy” by Andrew P. Smiler.

“It’s really easy to go into the library and look around a little bit and find a filthy book that should not even be in a public library,” Sisti said according to The Associated Press. “These books are absolutely appalling.”

Sisti filed a complaint with the local sheriff’s office and prosecutors are reviewing the case.

While looking into pursuing charges, prosecutors are seeking the appointment of a special prosecutor to look at the case before deciding whether or not to pursue charges, County Attorney Mitchell Damsky said Friday.

Investigators have yet to contact library staff about the complaint, leaving them unable to know which books are causing the potential legal trouble, according to the library’s executive director, Terri Lesley.

When notified which books are the center of controversy, Lesley said library officials had already looked into a complaint about the book “This Book is Gay” and concluded it was ok to place it in the Teen Room.

The decision was under appeal to the library board as officials review the complaints about the other four titles.

Lesley noted that library staff has been dealing with some 35 recent complaints about 18 books, a phenomenon which she called quite unusual for the library.

“It’s unexpected,” she said. “We are trying to be the force of reason, trying to work through these things using the policy we have in place—review these books and do our due diligence.”

An advocacy group called Wyoming Equality says parents should be able to decide when their children should be able to view such materials.

“Maybe the answer is never. If it’s never, that’s fine. But do you get to make that choice for other families?” asked the LGBTQ group’s executive director, Sara Burlingame.

The prosecutor said the dispute about the books has “gotten contentious and out of hand,” and should probably have been resolved by simply putting the books in amongst adult materials, said Damsky.

Damsky said that as a parent, she found the material to be “inappropriate for children and disgusting.” However she said as a lawyer, she is charged with upholding the Constitution and said the situation would be dealt with “with a fine-toothed comb.”

The complainant Sisti, along with Hugh and Susan Bennett visited the sheriff’s office Wednesday and expressed concern that the books in question may be in violation of child-sex laws. The complaint was reviewed by the sheriff’s office, and they referred the case, first reported in the Gillette News Record to prosecutors.

“It’s very challenging to imagine how a child who’s sexually immature, physically immature, if there’s any reasonable purpose for exposing them to sexual behavior that’s far beyond their physical and mental and emotional and intellectual abilities to understand,” Hugh Bennett said.

In reference to the books, Bennett said they were “hard-core pornography to children.”

For example, as Sisti pointed out, the book “This Book is Gay” describes in illustrative form male and female genitalia, as well as descriptions of oral and anal sex. Damsky however downplayed the complaints, noting that much of the same materials are widely available on the internet.

“What 9-year-old kid today can’t access Pornhub or whatever they want, you know what I mean?” Damsky queried.

The library was already under fire last summer when it was revealed they planned to host a performance by a transgender magician, a show eventually canceled by the magician due to threats.

After the furor raised over the magician’s planned performance, Wyoming Equality met with local officials about the threats, and offered to support the library’s staff. Town officials left Burlingame with the impression that the furor over the library would eventually subside.

‘It seemed like there was some kind of opportunity to put the brakes on this and can we talk to each other,” Burlingame said. “It seems like the train has jumped the tracks.”

The indoctrination of our children continues.

In Washington State, Democrats (who else) are pushing a bill that would mandate “comprehensive sexual health education” by the year 2022.

The bill, House Bill 2184 would begin to talk sex to children as young as kindergarten. While most children at that age are usually more interested in playing with dolls or trucks, Democrats would begin the process of pointing children in a different direction.

A group called “Informed Parents of Washington” is warning parents about the dangers of the legislation. The group describes itself as a “collation of parents dedicated to fighting Comprehensive Sexxx Education in our schools and legislation that imposes upon parental rights.”

In a Facebook post, the group said:

“In most cases ‘comprehensive’ doesn’t mean what we think it means. Most of us might think that means the biology of sex and the fertilization process, maybe to include some information about avoiding std’s and pregnancy.

In reality, though, most who promote “comprehensive sex education” are talking about the details of sexual activity and the varieties of sexual stimulation.

Many such programs include subtle (and not so subtle) encouragement for the students to experiment with some or opposite sex partners, instruction on the nature of orgasm and all the ways to achieve it, along with drawings and/or photos shat show them how.”

Democrats say that the bill would establish “equity,” i.e., equal access to health information, especially with regard to the topics of “affirmative consent’ and the needs of LGBTQ students.

Because students in elementary school need to know about that, right?

The Washington Office of superintendent of Public Instruction (OPSI) conducted a survey about sex education in schools, which netted more than 10,000 responses, nearly three-fourths from women.

The state formed a work group that was comprised of 16 women that reviewed K-12 sex education provisions in the state and their final report concluded that “members agree all students would benefit from K-12 comprehensive sexual health education.”

Ironically the survey found that 58 percent of survey respondents said that such a program should NOT be required in grades K-12, while 42 percent said it should be required. So obviously, the survey meant nothing, since these 16 apparently women had their minds apparently made up.

The group stated:

The Sexual Health Education Workgroup agreed that all students in Washington’s public schools should have access to comprehensive sexual health education (CSHE) in grades K-12.

Mandating CSHE is an issue of equity and would help ensure all students across the state receive quality, evidence-informed instruction, regardless of who they are or where they live.

The Workgroup found that several groups are often excluded from relevant, inclusive instruction, including students in and out of home care, students with disabilities, students who identify as LGBTQ+, and English learners among others.

The website of Washington Rep. Michelle Caldier (R) provides a radio report with John Sattgast in Olympia about the bill.

“When I looked at the curriculum, I’d be happy to read some of this stuff, but I will tell you I know that the chair would gavel me because it is completely inappropriate for me to say here,” Caldier said about the proposed mandated sex ed curriculum.

“And I think that if it is inappropriate for me to say on the dais, I don’t think that’s something that I would want to teach a kindergartner.”

Sattgast observed that out of 97 people signed up to testify, only 16 were permitted to do so within the time limit.

Though the bill to mandate comprehensive sex ed died in the last legislative session, the current bill is equally as controversial, stated Washington conservative radio host Jason Rantz of The Jason Rantz Show on AM 770 KTTH.

“And it’s fueled less about meeting the sexual needs of young kids (these needs don’t exist), than it is about pushing a very specific social justice agenda on gender identity for all classrooms,” he stated.

On their Facebook page, Informed Parents of Washington speak to what is actually contained in the curriculum. The group says that exercises given to sixth grade students makes sure that a child having sex is not shamed, while there is no similar concern for those who choose not to have sex. Students are not told about the benefits of abstinence.

The Democrats proposal, called “Rights, Respect, Responsibility: A K=12 Curriculum” apparently replaces the “3 R’s” of our youth (reading, wRiting and aRithmetic) with a new three “R’s”—Rights, Respect and Responsibility.

Under the program, kindergarteners would learn about the proper names for body parts, but only after a “note on language” clarifies that BIOLOGY is SUBSERVIENT to gender identity.

While children in kindergarten will have language that uses the terms ‘girls’ and ‘boys,’ along with ‘male’ and ‘female’, in later grades they will be instructed in proper pronouns according to the alphabet mafia, introducing a “broader concept of gender.”

With the assistance of a PowerPoint presentation, teachers will instruct young children:

Most girls have a vulva which is the name for the area between the legs.

The vulva describes the whole area including the small hole where urine or pee comes out called the opening to the urethra, the hole below that, which is a little bigger and is called the vagina that is used when a female has a baby, and the hole below that where a bowel movement, or poop, comes out called the anus.

So, a person with a vulva has three holes between their legs and a very sensitive little area at the top called the clitoris.

Most boys have a penis between their legs which they use to urinate or ‘pee.’ Some boys have a foreskin, which is a piece of skin that covers the end of the penis and some boys do not. A boy also has a hole where a bowel movement, or poop, leaves the body called an anus, just like a girl.

Kindergarten people. Not wasting any time, when children go to first grade, they get to learn about gender roles. Teachers are instructed to read ­My Princess Boy prior to the lesson and then ask the children:

“Does the job a person has, or what they wear mean the person is a man or woman?” (No) “Do the activities someone likes to do for fun or what they wear mean they are a boy or a girl?” (No)

Close the lesson by asking “How could you support others in trying new things and participating in activities that some people may sometimes say are only for boys or only for girls?” Ask for volunteers to offer strategies.

(Some responses might include: tell them that you think it’s great; tell them that they shouldn’t listen to what other people think; tell them that you will do it with them; tell them that there is no such thing as girl activities and boy activities, etc.)

Indoctrination. Note the part about not “listen(ing) to what other people think?” Parents? No say?

Fast forward to sixth grade. This is where the gender neutral or gender non-binary nonsense gets touted.

In the proposal, sixth graders would learn “language…that seems less familiar—using the pronoun ‘they’ instead of ‘her’ or ‘him,’ using gender neutral names in scenarios and role-plays and referring to ‘someone with a vulva’ vs. a girl or woman.”

“This is intended to make the curriculum inclusive of all genders and gender identities,” states the proposal.

Once kids reach 15, they are going to be taught that “sexting” is normal sexual behavior. In fact, the teacher’s guide notes that the teacher will have to “ask your IT person at school to unblock the site for you to use in class.”

The homework assignment tells the kids to go out and share their knowledge with at least four friends. Kids are told that “this isn’t easy to talk about and you may still have questions. Remember you can always talk with me…” Meaning the teacher.

This is the Democrat party for you. Anything goes. Parents be damned. The state knows what is better for your children than you do. And we wonder why we are raising a generation of snowflakes?
