Hear Me Out, or, Ginny Maziarka's Crusade against Homosexuality

Continuing its insightful review of books that Ginny Maziarka has objected to at the West Bend library, Consorship-Free Libraries has posted a summary of Hear Me Out: True Stories of Teens Educating and Confronting Homophobia, a collection of twenty first-person accounts written by lesbian, gay, and transgender teens.

The bottom line is that Hear Me Out does not contain any sexually explicit material or anything else that could cause it to be labeled as obscene by any reasonable person.

As a result, Censorship-Free Libraries has issues the following challenge to Ginny:
AN OPEN CHALLENGE TO GINNY MAZIARKA: Post a comment to this blog that explains your objection to Hear Me Out!. Tell us clearly what it is about this book you find objectionable, and state in tangible, practical detail what you think the library should do with/to this book. If you feel your explanation needs more space than a blog comment allows, post a full article on your own WISSUP blog and leave a link in a comment here. (Yes, you should expect your response to be scrutinized and debated).
I don't expect Ginny to acknowledge this blatant attempt to rid the library of any text that portrays homosexuality in a positive (or, at least, non-negative) light.

Her repeated attempts to push her (intolerant, homophobic, antithetical of the lessons of Jesus) morals on the rest of the community have got to stop.


  1. I cut a pasted the challenge into Ginny's blog. She, of course, deleted it. then claimed that she has responded to the blogger. There is no comment on the blog from Ginny that I could find. Still more cowardice and hypocracy from Ginny Maziarka.

  2. Yeah, I saw that too. Wonder what forum she used for her response.

  3. Now we have a suspicious lack of comments on all of Ginny's new posts. I have tried to comment several times and nothing has been allowed.

  4. Noticed that. I wish we could just ignore her in hopes she'd go away, but I fear that voice cannot be allowed to remain unchallenged.

  5. Did you see the letter in the paper from Debbie something today. It was addressing mine regarding community standards. Now mind you I just read Fri. paper 15 minutes ago. I've been busy taking down and puting back up a chain link fence today but can anyne tell me if it was a slam or agreement cuz frankly I am not sure. I think I am too tired to figure it out. What do you think?

  6. Looks like WISSUP has "comment moderating" enabled. Too bad, miss checking in frequently to see DanBack comments before they disappear.
