    You seem to think that banning Mrs. Doubtfire will change the world. Whatever. Perhaps we can just pass a law that says we can lock up our kids under the stairwell till they’re 18 “for their own protection”.

    I am sure there are mixed reasoning... some probably love kids, some probably like kids (which is why bg checks are needed), some is for exposure and some is...

    I don’t believe that is the only motivation for all of them although I can understand why some would do this after the decades of persecution they have received by the “bible thumpers”.
    Even if it is just provoking, why is that an issue? Seems to be working since our 2016 election...

    As long as the kids have fun and are safe I could 100% care less, but you need to read the bill to get the full picture.
    This is to allow deletion of gay characters and themes in “minor” (less than 18) books on the will of five people at each library.
    Why not let parents choose?

    I don't consider affectionate kissing sex.

    It will certainly protect children from being exposed to these mental disorders.

    182.821.2 (1) "Age-inappropriate sexual material", any description or representation, in any form, of nudity, sexuality, sexual conduct, sexual excitement, or sadomasochistic abuse, that:
    182.821.2(1)(a) Taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest of minors;
    182.821.2(1)(b) Is patently offensive to prevailing standards in the adult community with respect to what is appropriate material for minors; and
    182.821.2(1)(c) Taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value for minors;

    So it doesn’t mention background checks and your entire premise is based on bigotry and lies‽

    Hey, at least you are consistent...

    Book readings to convince kindergarteners that freakish lifestyle choices are acceptable, in spite of their parents’ values and beliefs.

    So children are mandated to come to these events, or is it optional? — up to the parents in other words...

    Many parents just trust the library to have a decent person reading to the kids. I know that’s hard to believe, but parents and kids are often over scheduled and don’t take the time to check these things out.

    In Dallas, I would not have suspected they’d have someone doing this who looks like the most flamboyant character from a San Francisco gay pride parade.

    Depends on how thoroughly they've previously been mind-raped by defenders of perversion. The clown is almost certainly appearing with the DQ so as to impart to the latter a patina of wholesomeness by association, and the kids will mostly take their cues from the despicable excuses for adults who set it up.

    I think the motivation is pissed off bible beaters
    I think it's the primary motivation. I understand pissing off bible beaters. I've been there myself. But when you do something like this you are catching more people in that then you want.
    everything you can think of is an issue with somebody. I don't know why.
    I think government doing anything about this is stupid. I don't think any Bill won't get anywhere.

    I think it's inappropriate. Put lots of things parents do with their kids I think is inappropriate.

    Is it inappropriate to do in front of kids?

    So which is it, is it against the parents wishes or are the parents too busy to care what their children do as long as they are distracted?

    Debate is about finding truth in our lives, yet you say you don't want to hear things that make you uncomfortable. The truth can not hurt anyone, only our expectations of it can.

    No, just going ahead and helping someone else see the distinction.

    How do you mean?

    Drag doesn't have to be an "adult themed cosplay show", it's possible to have tasteful drag for kids. Even then, it's really the same theme going on. Expose him to things in his life that will make it so he can understand what's happening and how to talk about it.

    Its not a mental disorder, but libraries are public places and these events should be held on private property.

    Republicans love to fly their banner that says they are for smaller less intrusive govt. and moments like this just go to prove how much they lie and think that people with kids are too stupid to make a decision on their own...

    I'll put my posting history up against yours anyday as to knowing what debating is all about and it's not about me hearing things this is about children and nothing about "truth".

    What if smart parents are taking their kids to the library for books that are in the same section?

    I'm sure you would want to, listing to yourself all of your accomplishments must seem like a good way to spend your time.
