Gay adults grew up reading straight romances, says writer Daniel Haack after US library withdraws Prince & Knight from shelves
The author of a rhyming picture book removed from the shelves of a West Virginia library has hit back at protesters, suggesting that anyone concerned the book could turn someone gay should remember all the gay adults who grew up only reading about straight romances.
Prince & Knight by Daniel Haack was pulled from West Virginias Upshur County public library earlier this week, according to local press reports, after a local church minister called it a deliberate attempt to indoctrinate young children, especially boys, into the LGBTQA lifestyle. The book tells the story of a prince and a knight who fall in love, ending on the lines: And on the two mens wedding day, the air filled with cheer and laughter, / for the prince and his shining knight would live happily ever after. Pastor Josh Layfield told parents that putting the book on library shelves was an intentional leading of children into sin.
The removal drew widespread criticism. The National Coalition Against Censorship, the American Library Association Office of Intellectual Freedom and West Virginia Library Association called on library board members to return Prince & Knight to their shelves.
