Tearing down exhibit was ridiculous
There has been much said about the Gay Pride exhibit at the Gloucester Library.
I must say that, as a parent and a person that lives in this community, I am outraged that one or two people can decide to tear it down because they were offended. That is ridiculous. We all know someone who is gay; we have friends who know gay people; our kids hang out with gay people. It’s not contagious. You don’t have to keep hiding from people that are different than you.
It would have been nice if (Gloucester supervisor Gregory) Woodard had minded his own business. His track record is not that impressive.
This could have been resolved long before this, by just putting out the exhibit and, if people didn’t like it, don’t look at it. We don’t live in the stone ages anymore!
Everyone is different and we all have different views, but that doesn’t give a small amount of people the right to make the decision for all of us.
So words can be thrown around now that it’s gone, but it shouldn’t have happened in the first place. And what is going to be the next thing pulled down from the public library?
