In the shadow of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, a spiritual sickness flourishes. Courtesy of the Jefferson Madison Regional Library (JMRL) system and the Charlottesville National Organization for Women, library patrons and their children are being exposed to a panopoly of explicit sexual practices placed alongside a provocative array of abortion desensitization and normalization propaganda.
All who enter Charlottesville’s Central Library are confronted with a glass case display bearing signs proclaiming “Your Body Your Choice” and “My Body My Choice.” Between the twin posters is a biblically inspired portrait of the Lion and the Lamb (i.e. Jesus), being descended upon by the dove of peace. The intentional combination of Christian symbolism with radical pro-abortion verbiage is confusing at best, and demonic, at worst.
The case itself, just steps away from the children’s section of the library, contains sexual and abortion related literature and paraphernalia directed toward youth. An examination of the case content and books placed on top of the case reveals messaging, instruction, and advice that broadly would be considered X-rated.
One book, open and featured inside the glass case details female masturbation:
“Even from an early age, girls (like boys) can find that touching or rubbing their own sex organs can feel good… For many girls, having orgasms when they masturbate is trickier at first than it is for boys. It can take patience and practice to get to know your clitoris…Masturbation is one of those things that almost everyone does, but few people talk about it. It is usually a very private and personal act, although mutual masturbation is sometimes done with a partner.”
On top of the glass case, another book—specifically written for a middle and high school aged audience—entitled simply, “this book is about sex,” by Tucker Shaw and Fiona Gibb, defines and explains divergent sexual practices and terms so that kids will be well equipped for their early experiences:
Doggie style: A sexual position that mimics the way dogs have intercourse (female on all fours with the male entering from behind).
Eat out: To give oral sex to a woman…
Finger: Inserting finger/fingers into the vagina and or/stimulating the clitoris for sexual pleasure.
Golden Shower: Sexual fetish in which one person urinates on the other…
Orgy: A sexual encounter involving more than three people.
Queef: Sound often made during sexual intercourse as a result of air pockets getting trapped in the vagina during the thrusting of the penis.
Subsections of the same book answer quintessential questions regarding sexuality such as:
- Should we have a foursome?
- How do I meet other lesbians?
- What can I expect if I have an abortion?
Within the glass case itself, is a virtual cornucopia of anti-religious, pro-abortion agitprop, and sexually themed items, including:
- A button proclaiming “If men became pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament”
- A gold-colored “coat hanger” necklace
- A complete Intra-Uterine Device (IUD)
- An exposed, unopened package of birth control pills
- Male and female condoms in various colorful packages, disguised as candy, with messaging such as “two become one” and “sweet one”
- An ode to racist eugenicist and Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger
- “Keep Abortion Legal” buttons
- Condom bumper stickers
- A quote from the book, Not for Everyday Use, demeaning Catholic teachings on sexuality
JMRL’s policy Section 4.51 addresses Displays and Handouts, and specifies that display space will be granted only under the following circumstances:
Requests made by the public for Library display space shall be granted only for educational, artistic, and cultural materials appropriate for all ages and designed primarily to promote interest in the use of books, other Library materials, or information services. [emphasis added]
The library clearly miscarries in meeting its own fundamental “all ages” test, as many of the displayed books are labeled “Young Adult.” Coat hangers, threesomes, and female condoms are clearly appropriate only for age-limited audiences.
Section 4.51 also addresses equity in such displays to be determined by the branch manager:
A request for a display focusing on a public issue must indicate that all aspects of the issue will be presented in an equal manner. The Branch Manager will determine whether or not the proposed display is balanced.
Such a lopsided display could not possibly meet the “balanced” criteria; yet, it was supposed to have been approved by library branch manager, Krista Farrell, who as a parent of two adopted children, would seemingly have great compassion for the suffering of children (both born and pre-born).
While NOW is merely fulfilling its execrable mission, the Jefferson Madison Regional Library has utterly failed its patrons by violating its own policies in a most contemptible way. JMRL has used taxpayer supported space to feature the gruesome Planned Parenthood / National Organization for Women political agenda—one which results in dead and dismembered babies. And it is attempting to market all manner of sexual experiences at very young ages as being “perfectly normal.” All of this pedaled, unavoidably, to children who enter Charlottesville’s Central Library not for politics, abortion, or sex, but for a peaceful learning experience.
