Fairfax County’s Dolley Madison Library recently showcased two highly controversial books — “Gender Queer” and “Lawn Boy” — alongside the Bible in a “holiday reading display.” Fairfax County’s school board is currently engulfed in controversy surrounding “Gender Queer” and “Lawn Boy” in district libraries.
According to detractors, “Gender Queer” and “Lawn Boy,” which include sexually vulgar passages and images, do not belong in school libraries. Fairfax County Public Schools, however, defends them as “diverse reading materials that reflect our student population.”
Fairfax County resident Harry Jackson, a father of three, joined Fox & Friends this morning to discuss the ongoing controversy surrounding obscene materials in government-run institutions. Although Dolley Madison Library removed its offensive display, Jackson called it a “partial” win for county families. “We still need to hold someone accountable,” Jackson said.
