Do Idaho’s Libraries Promote Degeneracy? Meridian Edition, Part 1



  • Libraries across the country are promoting a confused gender ideology and the anti-American BLM ideology of “anti-racism.” It is happening in Idaho too.

  • Meridian Library has 43 of the 56 children’s books on Action Idaho’s “Obscenity List.”

  • Meridian Library also has an activist anti-racism agenda that it promotes through programming and events, with no counter balancing programming on the promise and nobility of the American project.


Woke librarians are transforming libraries across the country. They peddle books about “gender trouble” to pre-schoolers and toddlers. They host drag queen story hours for young children. They encourage children to be sexually active, but rarely encourage traditional family life. They emphasize their anti-racist mission at the expense unifying and accurate depictions of the United States as a land of accomplishment and hope.


Woke librarians are seeking to dismantle the whole idea of childhood innocence, which, they believe, serves the interest of America’s traditional order. They want to confuse children and upset their stable sexual identities. A population with destabilized children will be easier for our oligarchy to control and manipulate. In this, woke librarians are part of a larger project that includes comprehensive sex education and the promotion of gender identity in schools.


But surely the Meridian Public Library in deep Red Idaho would be immune from these national trends. The City of Meridian is, after all, reliably conservative. All its state representatives are Republicans. An elected library board oversees Meridian’s libraries. Therefore, its libraries must be respectful of Meridian’s conservative values.


The data, however, tell a much different story. Meridian Library pursues an activist anti-racist agenda. It also has mountains of children’s books promoting the LGBTQ+ agenda.


Many children’s books in the Meridian public library promote childhood sexual activity and gender confusion. ActionIdaho has developed a battery of fifty-six degenerate children’s books written in the past few years. LGBTQ+ books on our list go beyond the mere romantic gay love story. Books on the list depict sexually engaged, non-traditional sexual material. Boys administer oral sex to other boys, or one boy sodomizes another. Or the books depict stories of systemic racism or exaggerated hating on whitey. Or depict males as captured but the worst forms of “toxic masculinity.” Or they glorify transitioning from one gender to another. Books on the list include Alex Gino’s George, Maia Kobabe’s Gender Trouble, Jonathan Evison’s Lawn Boy, Heather Corinna and Luke Howard’s, Wait, What?: A Comic Book Guide to Relationships, Bodies, and Growing and more than fifty others.


On the list, for instance, is I Am Jazz, which won the Rainbow Project Book List Award in 2015. Jazz is the story of boy who from a very young age comes to identify as a girl. It promotes gender confusion among children, risky sexual behavior, and glorifies trans lifestyles. The book is also now a TLC reality-TV show “I Am Jazz.”

Brook Pessin-Whedbee’s Who Are You? is unique in its promotion of transgenderism (this is not on Action Idaho’s list but Meridian Library has it). It contains a gender dial where young children can see whether the type of body they have matches their gender expression and their identity (see the image above). There is also a spinning wheel where students can select from 18 options about their identity like “sometime a girl and sometime a boy,” “trans” and “genderqueer.”


Meridian Public Libraries have 43 of the fifty-six books. Especially prominent on the list are books normalizing children transitioning from one gender to another. Kobabe’s Gender Queer, Susan Kulkin’s Beyond Magenta, I am Jazz!, Tristan Jimerson’s Quick and Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns, and others can be found in Children’s Literature. Many, many books also promote sexual activity, along with drug use and even suicide.


Perhaps the thirteen missing books are on order!


Other measures exist, and stay tuned for our reporting on them.


Meridian library’s anti-racism agenda has gained speed in the last three years. Anti-racism is founded on the belief that racial prejudice pervades all aspects of American and indeed Western culture—and only a single-minded focus on actively deconstructing all aspects of the civilization can cure the country of ills.


The Meridian Library District website on Race Resources promotes Black Lives Matter style activism among teens with recourses like Black Lives Matter: Resources and Ways You Can Get Involved, How Student Activism Shaped the Black Lives Matter Movement, and Racial Justice and Equity from dosomething.org. Anti-racist children’s books also teach that the country is irredeemably racist under the guise of an talking “honestly with children about racism.”


Books for more mature audiences also have a singular focus on the anti-racism narrative. There are resources on how to be an anti-racist ally and others that teach “white people to learn and talk about race and racism.” The site hosts “antiracism” events and features anti-racist advocate Ibram X. Kendi. No corresponding resources speak to the amazing racial progress made in this country, nor do any seek to explore the troubling family breakdown or crime among America’s black population.


We know enough to know that the Meridian public libraries are peddling porn to little children in an effort to undermine our community’s standards.

For a complete list, see Action Idaho’s Library Transparency Project. No list is perfect or comprehensive. Surely some other books Cheryl Kilodavis’s My Princess Boy could be included as well (and Meridian Library has it). Action Idaho’s list creates a degeneracy baseline of books written since woke takeover of our institutions began (roughly 2014). If libraries have these books, they are very likely to have many more such books.
