Oklahoma libraries starting to cave?

by Jeremy Hooper

Despite initially indicating that she wouldn't cave to her state's recently passed "non-binding resolution" to segregate gay-themed children's books, Tulsa City-County Library CEO Linda Saferite told local reporters yesterday that the diversity-encouraging books have been moved to a special "Parenting Collection" section.

Rumor has it that entry into the "Parenting Collection" section requires one to declare themselves devoid of morals, and to wear the word "fag lover" upon their bosom. Oh, and it's housed in a gas chamber. But once you get passed all that, the copy of "Heather Has Two Mommies" is all yours!

**UPDATE: Local reports indicate that the librarians are being pressured by some state Representatives, who have threatened to kill a bill that would give libraries more money unless they remove the queer-friendly kiddie lit. Drunk with power, they are.
