Arkansas Dad Sues Public Library Over Lesbian Book

Quote:
ccording to Adams, his two sons, ages 14 and 16, were "greatly disturbed" by their discovery and apparently underwent "many sleepless nights" as a result. In a letter faxed to Mayor Bob McCaslin, Adams himself wrote that the book pushes "an immoral social agenda." He is seeking $10,000 per son -- the maximum allowed under the Arkansas obscenity law -- and has also demanded that the library director be fired.


I wrote an article about why libraries should include homosexual materials in their collections some time ago. It continues to remain timely....

I abhor censorship and do not think it is the responsibility of the government to shield kids/people from the realities of life. It is the responsibility of the parent to help their children cope with difficulties.

If these kids are that upset about learning that lesbians exist they have a tough road ahead and I don't think daddy's actions are helping.
