Storytime at local libraries isn’t what it used to be.
In the not-so-distant past, it involved librarians reading children’s classics to eager young listeners.
Now, our “progressive” society is working to erase this role for library workers — replacing them with men in drag.
Ian Morrison, whose drag name is Brittany Lynn, is spearheading a recent push to normalize these events.
According to Morrison’s GoFundMe fundraiser, he plans to launch his Drag Queen Story Time 2.0 at the Please Touch Museum, a Philadelphia children’s center. He is asking for $10,000 to make it happen.
Morrison accurately writes that “children know nothing of gender roles at their young age,” but he thankfully has a solution. He claims to be working with five child educators, whose roles revolve around guiding parents with seemingly gender-confused children.
“More importantly, this program will be addressing questions that kids may want to ask but are afraid to ask in front of their parents, peers, or others,” Morrison writes. “These questions will be asked during pivitol (sic) points of the program AND will be asked by PUPPETS planted in the audience along with their puppeteers.”
Educators with an agenda, planted audience members catering to children, and an impressionable and captive audience — if you don’t think this is what the front lines of the culture war looks like, you’re dead wrong.
As Philly.com reported, this war isn’t being waged exclusively at private venues. Annie Christ (presumably an irreverent play on “Antichrist”), another Philadelphia-area drag queen, will be hosting a drag queen story time at an area library on Feb. 2.
If you’re wondering how subtle “Annie” will be during his interactions with kids, his Instagram doesn’t inspire much confidence.

Pennsylvania’s Lansdale Library was inundated with calls after the announcement that the story time would be taking place there.
The library’s director expects a protest to form.
Despite the outcry, the event is predicted to draw progressive parents from all across the city. Families will even be turned away in the very likely scenario that the library room hits its maximum legal occupancy.
Fortunately, not every American is willing to go gently into the dark night of the progressive left. One fight comes from exactly where you’d expect — Cajun country.
As WAFB reported, Louisiana activist groups were able to slow the onslaught of progressivism and give protection, however fleeting, to their community’s children.
Although activists were able to stop drag queen story time for a while, Louisiana’s Lafayette Public Library quickly backed down after being threatened with an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit.
Agendas like that of the drag queen story times must be fought on all levels. Whether ending in victory or defeat, stands need to be taken and lines need to be drawn. These events will invariably push children toward a dangerous and damaging path, oftentimes with parents obliviously cheering from the sidelines.
Evil, however seemingly innocuous a form it takes, must never be accepted as a viable alternative to good.
