This is what the advert on the pages of the library says. Read and weep:

Reading this ad, the question begs – how is it OK for anyone to have our minor boys, ages 13 – 18, be pushed into this and be corrupted in such a “voluntary” way?
Instead of teaching them how to become educated and strong men, good fathers, caring husbands, staying sober and drug-free, contributing to society and defending country, the Library teaches them how to be drag queens and apply properly make-up on?
This has gone way too far and is not acceptable.
The folks at the library have lost their moral compass to allow themselves to organize an event like this.
Despicable. Must be stopped, but it would not be…, “because of the Library Bill of Rights“, says Library’s Director Sara Slymon, bids us “good bye” and confidently, or should we say arrogantly, hangs up the phone as if she owns the Library. That much on customer service, but we can live with that, good manners are not for everyone.
Democracy however is.
…BUT… democracy does not mean simply freedom – one has to know what to do with it in order to not self-destruct. Democracy is not only right, but mostly responsibility to self and the future of society. It is apparent we have lost the ability to come to this realization and the results are present.
Food for thought – what happens when one day soon, a radical religious group approaches the Library and asks for a workshop on say, out of all things in the world… suicide bombing in the name of…
To further illustrate our point – what if ALL men in our country turned to drag, resting on their “rights”… We would be done.
We must agree with Karl Heinrich Marx’s premise of dialectical materialism when it comes to the so called “socially acceptable behaviour” – “It is not men’s consciousness that determines their existence, but, on the contrary, their social existence that determines their consciousness”, A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy (1859).
The very fabric of our society as we know/knew it is fast disintegrating for decades now and there is nothing good in store for us in the present or in the future if things continue this self-destructive way.
And for this credit must be given not to our enemies, but to our collective “selves”.
Over and out.
