Virginia Library Removes Holiday Display Featuring 'Gender Queer' & 'Lawn Boy' Next to the Bible
"The Dolley Madison Library holiday reading display was intended to highlight the freedom to read and the fact that many library patrons have more time during the holidays to do so," Fairfax County Public Library Director Jessica Hudson reportedly said in a statement. "It was not the intention of staff to create a display that could be construed as offensive. The display has been removed."
A library in Fairfax County, Virginia, created a book display featuring the notorious books "Gender Queer" and "Lawn Boy" – which parents claim feature pedophilia and obscene material – alongside the Bible but later removed the display after residents called it offensive. pic.twitter.com/5Mj7l1fM0A— D.
