Grooming Kids at the Waunakee Public Library

Under the guise of inclusivity and acceptance, evil has crept into our Dane County communities. If you pay attention and open your eyes, you’ll see it up close and personal at the Waunakee Public Library.

Do you have a 5-year-old? Or a 12-year-old? Have you explained “scissoring” to them? As an adult, do you even know what “scissoring” is?

Visit the Waunakee Public Library, and you’ll get quite an education, and so will your children. In fact, one book your child could open, Here and Queer: A Queer Girl's Guide to Life, gives them instructions for having sex for the first time, using one of many options:

  • Oral Sex

  • Digital Penetration

  • Penetrative Vaginal Sex

  • Penetrative Anal Sex

  • Non-Penetrative Sex

  • Scissoring

  • Clitoris-focused Sex

  • Muffing

  • Butt Plug

  • Vibrator

Your child could also pick up the unassuming book You Ruined It (Ordinary Terrible Things) by Anastasia Higginbotham, who describes how being raped by her not-quite-grown-up cousin gave her powers like one of the X-Men.

In June 2022, for Pride Month, the Waunakee Public Library had many sexually explicit books prominently displayed in their Ages 0-12 section. One local parent reported to us that she took her young children to the Waunakee Public Library to check out some books for summer reading and found it impossible to quickly shield them from these materials, The books were in full view the moment they walked in. (NOTE: Recent reports are that many of these same materials are still visibly arrayed, suggesting that the display was not just for Pride Month.)

Here are a few more photos of the materials that parent observed:

Referred to Waunakee Library Youth Services Manager, Brittany Gitzlaff—who also oversees book selection for the children’s section—this same parent expressed that her family didn’t feel safe in the library with so much sexually explicit content on display.

Gitzlaff’s response…?

“The library isn’t meant to be a safe space for all.”

She further defended the library’s actions by adding that the library needed to provide books for diverse families.

Knowing the Law

Offering such books to children and youths cannot be seen or understood as anything but a deliberate attempt to: 1) groom them and 2) normalize pedophilic behavior. It’s actually a crime.

Wisconsin State Statute 948.11 plainly asserts that it is illegal to expose a child to harmful descriptions or narrations.

SS 948.11(1)(ag) defines harmful descriptions or narrative account as “any explicit and detailed description or narrative account of sexual excitement, sexually explicit conduct […] that, taken as a whole, is harmful to children.”

SS 948.1(ar) further defines harmful material as:

  1. Any picture, photograph, drawing, sculpture, motion picture film, or similar visual representation or image of a person or portion of the human body that depicts nudity, sexually explicit conduct, sadomasochistic abuse, physical torture or brutality and that is harmful to children; or

  2. Any book, pamphlet, magazine, printed matter however reproduced or recording that contains any matter enumerated in subd. 1., or explicit and detailed verbal descriptions or narrative accounts of sexual excitement, sexually explicit conduct…that, taken as a whole, is harmful to children.

It's important to look a bit further into the statute, where SS 948.11(1)(b)(2) defines "harmful to children" as: “that quality of any description, narrative account or representation, in whatever form, of nudity, sexually explicit conduct, sexual excitement […] when it is patently offensive to prevailing standards in the adult community as a whole with respect to what is suitable for children.” (emphasis added)

In looking at Wisconsin law, do you see why there would be—and is—an active, concerted effort to normalize the kinds of materials that the Waunakee Public Library is now promoting? If the rest of us gradually come to accept the exploitation of our children—if toleration of such abuse becomes the adult standard—then the laws that currently protect our children from predators will instead be used to justify any and all harm to them. The battle is real.

Taking a Stand to Protect Our Kids

For too long, most of us have been guilted into accepting the behavior and the demands of a small but loud number of people whose appetites, predilections, or sympathies deviate significantly from the norm. To make it harder for the rest of us to resist their aims, such individuals and the organizations that advocate on their behalf have cleverly leveraged the social justice movement to redefine themselves as a privileged victim class. Nothing could be further from the truth. Again, their goal is to normalize their deviancy and dysfunction for the purpose of inflicting damage on our children, and to be able to do so without consequences. Why is it acceptable for anyone to use our children to propagate a cycle of dysfunction that should simply end?

We do not help deeply disturbed individuals by tolerating or accepting their predatory behavior. It is, frankly, misguided and dangerous to condone their harm of others. We certainly fail in our responsibility to love our children and properly protect them by permitting anyone to groom, abuse, and maim them—whether emotionally, psychologically, physically, sexually, or spiritually.

The grooming and abuse of our children needs to stop. Period. End of sentence.

Parents, what red line needs to be crossed for you to stand up and say no? You are not helpless. You CAN make a difference locally in your community by firmly resisting the sexualization of children and the sickness that underlies it.

At the end of this article is a troubling list of books we know the Waunakee Public Library currently offers, some but not all of which are referenced above. There may be more, a possibility that we strongly encourage parents to investigate. At least two of these books are recommended for ages 13 and up, an age range not covered by the children’s section of the Waunakee library; yet they have clearly been made available in the children’s section, a fact that should cause additional unease.

We encourage parents to contact the Waunakee Public Library at 608-849-4217 and demand that these and related books and other materials be removed. If you’re not in Waunakee, we urge you to check your own local library for similar damaging material.

Diving Deeper into the Truth

We also invite you to take a deeper dive into the roots of the transgender movement in the United States, which is not only represented in several of the books at the Waunakee library but poses an already prominent and growing threat to our children. Below are links to two helpful videos that elucidate the movement’s deviancy and goals. You’ll want to make sure your children are out of the room when you watch. Much of the material covered is sensitive.

First, we recommend this informative conversation between "Relatable" program host Ally Beth Stuckey and journalist/researcher Genevieve Gluck.

Second, an additional presentation by Gluck in which she provides further insights about the origination of the transgender movement and flag, details not covered in the discussion with Ms. Stuckey.

Finally, as promised, here is the known but probably incomplete list of materials available at the Waunakee Public Library. Don't take our word for it on what these books are. We've provided links for each title, so that parents can take advantage of Amazon's "Look Inside" feature to the greatest degree possible. Note that the recommended ages for these titles begin with infancy.
