Am I too old to accept a children’s book called “Two Boys Kissing?”

Am I too old to accept a children’s book called “Two Boys Kissing?”


Why does this shock me:

I found this book in the children’s section of a Hawaii public library. It makes no rational sense for me to be disturbed. Me—a person who accepts whatever is private and doesn’t hurt other people I say let people live their lives snd don’t bother them. But this coming of age book, which I wouldn’t have noticed if it was about a boy snd a girl, this book bothers me. Especially its presence in the children’s section. Am I just too old yo put aside deep seated gender roles? Does it bother you?
