Drag Queen Story Time at the Cherry Hill Public Library, June 19, 2017
It is one thing to be tolerant. Adults can figure that out. It is an entirely different matter to program the minds of very young children and to use taxpayers' money and public facilities to do so.
Here's the story:
CHERRY HILL -- A pair of drag queens had songs, style and a message for kids and their families at the library Monday night: It's okay to be different.
Around a dozen families slogged through the dreary evening to arrive in the colorful children's room at The Cherry Hill Public Library for story time. Young girls and boys sat cross-legged on the carpet, waiting for "Aria Sheer" and "Natu Sheer," who perform together as the Sheer Sisters, to make an entrance.
The duo walked in wearing bright, tight dresses, heavy eye makeup, big wigs and high heels. Aria Sheer, who is played by Richie Roberts, had a glittering beard and a purple dress with a long train while Natu Sheer, Lindsay Caswell, wore a fur sash and curly green wig.
In a program that lasted about half an hour, the two sang songs, read two books titled "It's Okay to be Different" and "Not Quite Normal" and helped kids make unicorn horns out of construction paper.
"We have a rainbow zebra here, and a regular one here," Roberts said, pointing to a page in the book. "And it's okay, right?"
While shy at first, the group quickly warmed up to the Sheer Sisters, hopping up and coming to the front of the room to get a closer look at the book's pages and posing for photos with the duo.

"We have a rainbow zebra here, and a regular one here... And it's okay, right?"
Yeah, except that there really isn't a "rainbow zebra" is there? Unless you take a "regular" zebra and paint it or do some pigment augmentation surgery on it or some shit like that.
What are they doing to these children? Sure all kinds of people exist on earth and when these very young children grow up and become adults, they will be running into all of them... drag queens, porn stars, blue collars workers and white collar employees, occupations of every description, people who collect condom wrappers and those who collect stamps, Christian fundamentalists, social justice warriors, communists, fascists, LGBTQRST activists, jihadists, neo-Nazis, Democrats who want to tax them to death, Republicans who could not care less... all sorts of people.
Should we use public facilities to give them all an opportunity to proselytize to the kids? Maybe pick up a convert here or there?
We haven't missed the coincidence that this dubious event occurred on the same day that august body -- the New Jersey Senate -- passed S-3067, allowing no debate and after hearings in which the audio of the hearing was doctored to eliminate some uncomfortable testimony from the public record. George Orwell anyone?
For those of you not paying attention to what the Senate does (that's 99.9% of the electorate -- by design), S-3067 uses the power of the State to require that the Commissioner of Education stick his nose into the business of local school districts and "develop guidelines regarding transgender students." Things like the use of "the name and pronoun that corresponds to a student’s gender identity... issuance of school documentation such as student ID’s in the name that corresponds to a student’s gender identity... permitting transgender students to dress in accordance with their gender identity... equal opportunities for participation in physical education... participation in gender-segregated school activities in accordance with a student’s gender identity... the use of restrooms and locker rooms... permitting and supporting the formation of student clubs or programs regarding issues related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth." In addition, the guidelines will include "information on organizations or other resources available to students and parents that provide support to transgender individuals." Yep, proselytizing and recruitment.
But don't you dare try to start a Christian club at school... or wear a Trump tee shirt to have your photo taken for the school yearbook. Some things WILL NOT be tolerated.
And when did the New Jersey Senate become so obsessed with the sexual identities of children? What's next? Breast augmentations for the 13 and under crowd so they might better conform to the entertainment media's ideas about the sexualization of children in the furtherance of the marketing of products?
The state has over 500 school districts -- each a hothouse of innovation on how to solve the age old problem of helping people rub along together without needing to tyrannize the majority. But no, the Senate -- and especially those dried up old figs on the Democrat side -- just have to get their hands on the state's children and force everybody into one way of thinking.
We have been warned about this before, in another context, by that good liberal, Mrs. Lillian Smith. A Southern writer, she was a pioneer in the battle to end segregation. We recommend her book, "The Winner Names the Age." In it, you will find this passage she wrote when she accepted the Charles S. Johnson Award for her work:
“It is his millions of relationships that will give man his humanity… It is not our ideological rights that are important but the quality of our relationships with each other, with all men, with knowledge and art and God that count.
The civil rights movement has done a magnificent job but it is now faced with the ancient choice between good and evil, between love for all men and lust for a group’s power.”
“Every group on earth that has put ideology before human relations has failed; always disaster and bitterness and bloodshed have come. This movement, too, may fail. If it does, it will be because it aroused in men more hate than love, more concern for their own group than for all people, more lust for power than compassion for human need.”
“We must avoid the trap of totalism which lures a man into thinking there is only one way, one answer, one option, and that others must be forced into this One Way, and forced into it Now.”
