500 Mom Strong to Protest Drag Queen Story
Hour in Spokane as Misogyny

 

A Facebook group Called 500 Mom Strong will be Protesting the Spokane Public Library’s Drag Queen Story Hour event.

The Drag Queen Story Hour is being held on June 15th at the South Hill Branch of the library and another is planned for the downtown branch on June 22nd. The story hour is being billed as “A special sparkly edition of story time! We will share stories of identity and inclusion and celebrate creativity with a craft.”

The group 500 Mom Strong was formed by Anna Bohach and Kim Hall to protest the misogyny of Drag and the sexualization of children. Their Facebook page 500 Mom Strong states:

500 Mom Strong is a group of women who have had enough with the sexualization of our children and the mockery of our femininity. The Spokane Public Library South Hill has decided to host a “Drag Queen Story Hour” on June 15th, at 2pm.

This is misogyny. Drag Queens are very offensive to women. They are hyper-sexualized caricatures of women. A Drag Queen is no different than a racist donning black face. They mock women and debase our womanhood and femininity. The event is a sexist minstrel show teaching our sons that women are just sexual objects and it teaching our daughters that they must be overly sexualized to be desired. Enough is Enough. WE say NO MORE to a political agenda aimed at degrading women and sexualizing children. We say NO to gender appropriation!

As a result of the protest the Spokane Public Library has decided to hold a Panel to discuss the Drag Queen Story Hour with the public. The leader of 500 Mom Strong, Anna Bohach, has been invited to be a part of the panel.

The panel meeting will be held on June 8th at the main branch of the Spokane Public Library at 2pm.

The Drag Queen Story hour will be held at the South Hill Branch of the Library at 2pm.

  1. As a male and devoted heterosexual, I say Vive la difference ! As a child of a professional woman – my mom was an architect – I certainly have no prejudice against women in any field – The day when Krisanne is elected president ! skyrockets ! I do look askance however at statements like “Gender appropration” as used above. If men in women’s clothes are objectionable, I might ask the author to name the Male attire she finds objectionable when worn by women ? I LOVE to see a stylish gal ! There’s no way around the fact that clothes make a statement, and I hope you 500 moms make a strong one at the Panel, namely, that you are all dressed to the nines !

  2. I hope none of these 500 mom protesting show up in pants.

    Deuteronomy 22:5 itself says this: “A woman shall not wear a man’s apparel, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment; for whoever does such things is abhorrent to the Lord your God.”

  3. The discussion at the library, Understanding Drag: A Community Conversation, that was originally scheduled for June 8 has now been changed to Thursday, June 13 at 7pm at the Downtown Library: http://www.spokanelibrary.org/calendar/#/?i=2. The story time for kids is still on Saturday, June 15, at the South Hill Library.
