I dare say it is library employees period that no longer feel safe. The feral "Talibaptists" and Not so "Traditional Catholics" are mostly to blame.

So refusing to let LGBTQ people influence their children now = forcing them back in the closet? ------

Tell me you don't go to the library without telling me you don't go to the public library.

LGBTQ people are everywhere.

The only way to keep them from influencing your children is to keep your children locked in the basement.

I'm guessing that's what happened to some of you.

I'm guessing this is your finger point at the ten commandments? That's not Christian, it's Jewish. And you've never seen me defend that or religion in any post since I've been around here.

@#7 ... I'm guessing this is your finger point at the ten commandments? That's not Christian, it's Jewish. And you've never seen me defend that or religion in any post since I've been around here. ...

"I'm guessing..." --- Why the apparent need to have a false premise to substantiate your current alias' opinion?

Can't it's opinions stand on their own?

As soon as the church wants a book in the library to educate one alter boy how to blow another one, I'll be against that too.

That's hands-on learning, directly from the priest.
Don't you remember?

Just a sign of Things to come.

On Dictator Day no job or workplace will be safe from rampaging Purge by Trumpy's loyalists.

Especially public service jobs.

This is where our country is...

Where no one agreeing with you is you not feeling "safe"...

Many do not feel safe working ironwork at high rise construction sites. So get another job!

Right, because gravity is the same as a lunatic with a gun.

The article is about LGBTQ+ people not feeling safe in the workplace, so the deplorable MAGAts show up to post nothing but conspiracy theories and hate.

Trump really got people to embrace their hate and stupidity.

But they aren't banning books. They are removing books from public entities to avoid sponsor. While that may or may not be bad based on your ideology (which is a different debate), they aren't banning books. If a parent wants their kid to have any of the books they are removing, they are free to buy them. Kids can even bring the books into schools. The government is just preventing the schools, which are government entities, from distributing them as it condones topics that may or may not be bad. Again, that is a different discussion but the government has been doing this for many, many decades. In fact, if you are someone who went to an American school and are alive today, you survived your school years with books that weren't allowed to be in YOUR school. That's reality, feel free to look it up.

At some point tolerance becomes encouragement. Some of these idiots who encourage drag shows at public libraries deserve to suffer.

That being said queer librarians that are just trying to do their f****** job need to be left alone by the howling mobs of Blockheads who seem to have a lingering resentment of libraries because it took them so long to learn to read.

LGT doesnt bother me. What bothers me are treating some people as special or making up imaginary afflictions purposely to create divide and political differences. Trans is a mental affliction that needs treated as such and not as protected element. No one gets special flags, days months because of political concoctions.
