I find it extremely inappropriate and insane to be honest. I would never bring my children and I would have a big problem if my library did this. There is no need for children to be read stories by men who choose to dress as women.

Exactly. I don't know what part of "voluntary" these offended parents don't understand. If they don't like it, don't bring their kids. Easy peasy.

It will boil over when other groups want equal time in front of the kids. Take your pick.

I'm for it, even though I disapprove of drag queens. Better to expose children to people who like to dress in drag when they're young so it becomes normalized instead of a source of fear. This is American, and people are allowed to do, dress, and act as they please so long as it doesn't infringe upon the rights of others. The more children grow up to accept that, the better Americans they'll be.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, I'd be for storytime with the Amish or something similar, as well.

Or storytime with the Proud Boys.

I just have to say that I really respect people who can be against something, but understand that others have rights too.

The thread, drag queens, or story time?

I agree completely. I was also vehemently opposed to "inventive spelling" in the schools and my kids did not participate in that train wreck of pc garbage.
