Looking at the pink dot and wear white movements , I saw an opportunity to promote a blue dot movement: that seeks to reach out with no hidden agenda, to the full range of marginalized people:
Sexuality& Religiosity seem to be a big two
But people of the "wrong" political colour
also get marginalized .
Foreign Talent, sex workers, people with HIV : these are our modern day lepers.
The traditional marginalized are the poor, the widow , the orphan, the handicapped , the cripple, the lame, the prisoner , the blind , the sick.
The pink movement has some strident voices that aggressively push the LBGT agenda : saying that, many of the pink supporters genuinely want to reach out to marginalized LBGT.
The religious "white" similarly discoloured by bible thumping "you will rot in hell" rhetoric ; contrariwise there are a host of bible believing Christians who will reach out to fellow sinners in non- judge mental ways.
My vision of the blue dot movement is a coming together of well intentioned do gooders to help the less fortunate
Another opportunity for the Blue Dots!
Lovingly facilitate the discussion of children library books without vitriol
It seems to be a "them versus us" debate.
Heavily loaded with politicized agenda.
Can it not be a rational discussion evaluating the pro and con?
Books do influence how we think.
Books are for entertainment
Books are for learning.
Books influence our values.
Values influence our morals
Values influence our behavior .
Parents of young children should guide what does into their children's minds,
Whether by TV shows, Internet or library books.
How much of responsibility for screenining does NLB have.
That is another part of the side debate.
