Broome County Public Library185 Court St, Binghamton, New York 13901
Come join us for our first ever Drag Queen Story Time! This is an exciting chance to see live characters from your favorite books. Ariel, Elsa, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella and maybe a surprise guest or two will appear before your eyes and read your favorite stories!
As I type this, 66 people say that they are going. That means a large number of preschool children will be treated to a drag queen show with a man cross dressing as their favorite female characters, all at their tax-payer funded public library. In reading through the comments on the library's Facebook page, whenever a critical comment was posted, the individual was quickly attacked as a hater and a bigot. I was not surprised to see that most of the comments were positive. Here are a few,
"Lucky kiddos! This is great."
"LOVE! Proud to be a part of such an amazing community!"
"This is going to be awesome! God love the Community!!!! 🙌🏼 yass!!"
"In my opinion, the reason they are advertising it as Drag Queen Story Time is to prevent outraged parents causing a scene when they bring their children. Outraged intolerant, bigoted parents."
"Outstanding, Broom County Public library.... paving the path for everyone to feel included! Children hold no judgement.... it’s what we teach them, that determines what kind of person they will be!"
"Oh...my...God! This is incredible!!! What an inclusive event for all children! Love love love this!!!"
"It just kills me that people have an issue with this but fail to remember that years ago MEN used to act out the WOMEN parts in Shakespeare plays. How crazy is it to think that this still lives on today? Go be mad and upset about something else. Your children will be fine. In fact, they’ll probably grow up to be more tolerant of people than these disgusting humans bashing this amazing event are."
"My own children are much older now but I will be borrowing a friend's child for such a fun and worthwhile event."
"What a beautiful way of teaching our kids acceptance and community. Our wonderful community is made up of all colors, backgrounds, gender identities and frankly, I can't wait! I'm looking forward to taking my children to the library for some reading and loving thy neighbor. Thank you for providing this opportunity."
"What an incredible event!! So proud of the community who is supporting this, and so heartbroken by all of the negative, uneducated comments. Drag is pure art, love, joy, pride, and celebration - everything we should be sharing with children!!"
"100% agree. It's part of our culture."
Yep. cross dressing is unfortunately a part of our culture, a tiny, itsy-bitsy part of our culture, and so are a number of other perversions that are also not appropriate for young children.
The tax-payers of Binghamton, NY should shut down their public library as it has become a public menace.
