Cork City Libraries has locked the comment section on a social media post featuring radical sexually explicit books next to books for young children.
“Cork City Council is a proud member of the Rainbow Cities Network,” the post read, adding “Why not pop into your local library to check out the wide range of LGBT stock within!”
An attached photo shows a number of LGBT-themed childrens’ books displayed on a shelf.
One of these books is “This Book Is Gay” by a transgender author named Juno Dawson.
As previously covered by Gript, this book features graphic sex tutorials about bringing men to sexual climax, as well as guides on the mechanics of how to perform anal and oral sex.
These descriptions are featured alongside cartoon illustrations.
“Perhaps the most important skill you will master as a gay or bi man is the timeless classic, the hand job,” the book reads.
“The good news is, you can practise on yourself.”
It also claims that “porn is fine and fun” and that “the prostate gland (located just up your bum) feels amazing when massaged), adding: “Lots of men, gay or straight, like how this feels.”
Beside this book on the same shelf is another book entitled “What’s the T?” by the same author, Juno Dawson, all about transgenderism, as well as “uncensored advice on coming out, sex and relationships.”
Directly beside these is displayed the book “An ABC of Equality” by Chana Ginelle Ewing – an alphabet book teaching children about “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and asexual” identities, among other things.
On Amazon, the book’s author says that the book is aimed at children as young as 3 years old.Cork library includes explicit sex material amid children’s books – Gript
