Having a bit of a gay-themed day here at Taking Aim. Parents in Missouri are up in arms about male penguins that might be gay because they looked after an egg together. The horror!
A book about two male penguins that raised a baby penguin has been moved from the children’s section to the non-fiction section of two public library branches after parents complained about homosexual undertones.
The illustrated children’s book, “And Tango Makes Three,” is based on a true story of two male penguins in New York City’s Central Park Zoo.
The penguins, named Roy and Silo, adopted an abandoned egg in the late 1990s.
Presumably, the ‘non-fiction section’ the article refers to is in the adult section of the library. Which begs the question – what kind of library doesn’t have a children’s non-fiction section?
