  1. More details would be helpful. If he wrote the word “Groomer” on the outside, and the chalkboard outside indicates a “Storytime” inside, it suggests the possibility of perverted cross-dressing drag queens are being foisted on the the children. IF so, the drag story hour is the most hateful crime of all. This encouragement pf perverted child sex screams to Heaven for justice. If I had children, there would be none of this sinful degradation around my kids.

    1. Foisted? Are these children being held captive? No, they are being taken to Story Time by their legal caregivers.

    2. Thank GOODNESS you don’t have children. Although your probability of becoming a parent is evident based on your demonstrated character.

    3. You realize that comedians appeared as drag queens on TV in the 50’s right? What are you scared of?

    4. I always feel that people who say such vile things are hiding a little secret. If it has nothing to do with you, why do you even care? That’s people problem, they think they can tell people how to live. Mine your own business and save your comments. It’s just that easy.
