Tulsa Caves in to Censors

“(Tulsa, Oklahoma) Two days after Oklahoma lawmakers passed a resolution telling publicly funded libraries that books written for children about gay families should be placed in Adults Only sections, Tulsa libraries have moved the books from ‘impressionable eyes’.”

The library director called this a “balancing act.” I’d call it a fall from grace. She says she was looking for “a better way to house these materials,” and created a “Parenting Collection,” which is a particularly Orwellian title that substitutes for “books we’re not going to let little kids read.” I say I’m glad I don’t live or work in Oklahoma.

I know you’re a woman, but lady, grow a pair.
