Bridge Michigan reports:
Lapeer County Prosecutor John Miller says he may file criminal charges against employees or officials of the Lapeer District Library if an LGBTQ-themed graphic novel isn’t removed from the shelves.
Miller told Bridge Michigan on Monday the illustrations in the book “Gender Queer: A Memoir” could rise to the level of accosting, enticing or soliciting a child for immoral purpose, a felony punishable by up to four years in prison.
“I hope that is not the outcome of this,” Miller said. “I want this to come to a conclusion” that the community agrees on that would “remove the book from the library.”

The town’s head librarian notes that Miller has expressed no opposition to books that depict heterosexual fucking. The Joy Of Sex, she points out, is also in the library’s collection.
Kudos to Amy Churchill, the director of Lapeer District Library, for standing up to intimidation tactics by the local prosecutor to try to force the library to remove an LGBTQ book https://t.co/xlaAzfPJge via @BridgeMichigan
