In case you were under the impression that Drag Queen Story Hour was some sweet event where guys in dresses read cute stories to little children and then everyone goes home, think again. Videos keep surfacing of drag queens doing stripteases, rolling around on the floor with children, and now… twerking. Oh yes, twerking. In case you don’t know what twerking is, there’s an entire genre on YouTube that will enlighten you (or sully your soul with degeneracy, to be more accurate). Twerking, for the uninitiated is the simulation of sex in dance form. There’s no other way to see it. I don’t recommend looking it up, but if you must, don’t say I didn’t warn you. But this is what libraries think is okay for toddlers now. Welcome to Twerk Time, little ones!
Ignoring for a moment the incredibly bad fake accent, what in the fresh hell is this? Who thought this was a good idea? The American Library Association, for one. They’ve been pushing this program all over the world. The Federalist reported:
The world’s largest library association’s annual conference this year featured more than 100 workshops with an “equity, diversity, and inclusion” theme, according to the American Library Association’s conference catalog. That included workshops with these titles (some shortened): “Creating Queer-Inclusive Elementary School Library Programming,” “Developing an Online Face for a Lesbian Pulp Fiction Collection,” and “Telling Stories, Expanding Boundaries: Drag Queen Storytimes in Libraries.”
It’s time to defund these people.
