You know, I, as an artist, have to consider censorship very carefully. For example, there is a fine line between pornography and art.
I have several WONDERFUL books (all fiction) where the hero (or heroinne) is gay. In some books the character has other issues to deal with, since they are gay. In others it is just a facet of the character, and makes no change in the story line. I think it is important for those books to remain in the mainstream libraries. A library should be open to all ideas, religions, beliefs, etc. The books are there for those who seek to learn more.
The only time I have ever been behind library censorship was when people were using the computers next to the childrens section to access pornography. Above all else we must protect our kids from predators. But, because a person is a homosexual it does not mean that they are a predator, or wrong, or evil, etc etc, it's that kind of thinking that lead to all of those nasty statistics about suicide rates.
I hope all that made sense, I'm trying to type, paint, take care of a child, keep my cat from ripping up the couch, and keep the dog off of the couch all at the same time. can we say multitask? <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />
