Chelsea Clinton, the former president’s daughter, spoke publicly against “bans” on sexually explicit, pro-LGBTQ publications being distributed in schools around the country.
Subsequently, she was accused of promoting “pornography” to youngsters.
This is Disturbing
On Thursday, Clinton stated on Twitter that an excess of 50% of the proposed book bans during the past year included books with LGBTQ+ characters & themes; although she omitted to mention that such works are often graphic.
The former president’s daughter emphasized that bans on things like these are purely detrimental because literature is a fundamental way for kids, teens, and adults alike to learn about both themselves and the world around them.
Clinton posted a recent NBC article in the tweet which bemoans the fact that efforts to prohibit publications have hit an all-time high; works with LGBTQ themes stay top priorities.
Over 50% of the attempted book bans last year involved books with LGBTQ+ characters & themes. Books are a vital way that children, adolescents and adults learn about themselves and our world. Bans such as these are nothing but harmful: https://t.co/eblRSU7tZk

The head of the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, Deborah Caldwell-Stone, is quoted in the piece as saying the “LGBTQ-heavy” compilation of disputed books sends an image of “exclusion.”
Younger gay and transgender people are being told they have no place in school and in society as a whole, she claimed. It conveys to the LGBTQ population that they do not have full citizenship rights and are not welcome in public spaces like libraries.
Periodic reminder that when they accuse us of “banning books” they’re referring to graphic books containing pornographic content which are offered to kids in schools across the country.

Many people were outraged by Clinton’s backing. Some even accused her of advocating “pornography” for kids.
Americans Push Back
The well-known Libs of TikTok Twitter account, devoted to revealing unacceptable actions of the radical left, posted on Twitter that they just want to remind everyone of something.
Whenever the left falsely accuses Republicans of ‘banning books,’ they are talking about graphic publications that include sexually explicit material distributed to children in educational institutions across the nation.
