[regarding the American Library Association…]
The librarians group, which has a significant influence on school libraries, has long been accused of serving literature with a side of far-left political influence on impressionable young minds. But what is just as notable as the extreme sex and ideology in its most recent favorites is the fact that it has seemingly abandoned literature altogether in favor of ideological tracts that don’t require so much pesky reading: comics.
YALSA’s “outstanding list of comics for teen readers ages 12 to 18″ is full of tracts like Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe, one of the books called out by a parent in Fairfax County, Virginia, who caused the school board to flee the stage, citing that children were present, when the parent simply read verbatim from materials she checked out of her child’s school library.
Maia rejects femininity in part because “I’m way too selfish for parenting. Plus, the thought of growing a parasite being [sic] inside my own body makes me want to vomit.”
As a young adult, Maia wears boys’ cartoon underwear and wants the “high-fantasy-gay-wizard-prince look of my dreams.” After dating a sex shop owner for two months, Maia’s partner says, “I got a new strap-on harness today. I can’t wait to put it on you it [sic] will fit my favorite dildo perfectly.” When the partner attaches the sex toy and performs oral sex on it, Maia complains that “I can’t feel anything.”
[The Daily Wire also has strong objections to the following comic:]
Superman Smashes The Klan: “In 1946, Lan-Shin (Roberta) Lee and her family move from Chinatown to central Metropolis and attempt to fit in with their neighbors. But when the Klan begins harassing the Lees, Roberta must team up with new friends to help Superman take down the Klan in this smart, action-packed adventure.”
