Viterbo Promotes Gender Confusion in Young Children

Viterbo University is a Catholic university in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Their library currently has a Pride Month display of children's books in their children's section. The books, aimed at children ages 3-17, include promoting gender confusion to 4 year olds, crossdressing "drag queens" to 7 year olds, and detailed, pornographic "transgender" sex scenes aimed at 14 year olds.

They are advertising the display as "Summer Reads" for children, but it is clearly meant to be a pride display as all 10 books are about gender confusion, cross dressing, and same sex relationships.

They are not merely including these books in their collection for students to research. They have chosen to display these books prominently in their children's section because they want to reach children and send a message. I have seen young, innocent children from the Boys & Girls club on campus using this area of the library in the past. They could be exposed to these books. They aren't even targeting college students, but children.

Below are titles and descriptions of all the books:

1) Strong

10) Love, Violet

"A young girl has a crush on another young girl but is too shy to tell her how she feels."

Taking a closer look at the Viterbo library, I found many books promoting gender ideology in the children's section. I could not find a single one countering it. A children's book search for gender reveals 137 results, although not all of them are about gender confusion.

Here are examples of books countering gender ideology that would be good for the Viterbo library to have and display:

Interestingly, Viterbo library director Kim Olson-Kopp, has written a chapter in a book promoting Marxist views of librarianship. Marxism has been tied to gender ideology. The book is called Critical Library Instruction: Theories and Methods. The chapter Kim Olson-Kopp wrote, along with Bryan Kopp, is called Depositories of Knowledge: Library Instruction and the Development of Critical Consciousness and you can read it here.

Critical instruction and critical consciousness are Marxist terms. The chapter also refers to Paulo Freire, a marxist who invented critical pedagogy, a way of incorporating Marxist beliefs into education. More about Paulo Freire.

Even though Viterbo University is a private university, it advertises itself as a Catholic school, so one would assume it espouses Catholic values or at least doesn't aggressively fight against them and live up to Viterbo's mission statement. The "Library Use" policy states the library is open to the public, who can read the books. Additionally, Viterbo houses a Boys & Girls (only 2 genders) so there are frequently children on campus who could see the display. The Boys and Girls Club advertises itself as being for ages 5-18.

Over the past few years, there has been a large increase in young people identifying as the opposite sex due to gender ideology indoctrination. Research is showing that conforming to gender ideology doesn't help, but hurts these children. For years progressive activists used the phrase, "would you rather have a dead son or a living daughter" to guilt people into supporting gender ideology. It was all a lie. An increasing number of these children are growing up to regret identifying as the opposite sex. Girls as young as 12 have had their healthy breasts removed in the name of gender ideology, and are now suing their healthcare providers.

I encourage you to respectfully write to Viterbo Library's Director Kim Olson-Kopp and Viterbo President Rick Trietley, explaining why you believe children should not be targeted with gender confusion. Also encourage them to add books to the collection (like the ones listed above) which help children understand the truth about gender in a society determined to confuse and even mutilate them.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: the author provided several examples of the pornographic content from the 'children's books' described in their aritcle but I refuse to publish this vulgar material and may God have mercy on the souls of these 'Catholics' who are sexualizing and grooming our young children.]

When a "so-called institution" has this available it puts a stamp of approval on it. Young people are too young and impressionable to know what is normal and acceptable. For a place associated with the Catholic church or any other respected institution to promote this is simply evil and a huge disservice to humanity and our children.

It's so sad.
