Texas school superintendent told school district librarians to remove books from their shelves that talked about sexuality and transgender people according to a joint media investigation published Wednesday.Prior to the return of students after the holiday break this January, Jeremy Glenn, the superintendent of the Granbury Independent School District in North Texas, told a group of librarians he met with that he needed to speak from his heart, according to ProPublica and The Texas Tribune in partnership with NBC News.In the meeting with librarians, Glenn reportedly told them he had concerns over LGBTQ-themed books. “And I’m going to take it a step further with you,” he said, according to the media investigation. “There are two genders.

There’s male, and there’s female. And I acknowledge that there are men that think they’re women. And there are women that think they’re men.

And again, I don’t have any issues with what people want to believe, but there’s no place for it in our libraries.”He also told them if they were not conservative, “You better hide it.”Glenn added, “Here in this community, we’re going to be conservative,” according to a recording of the meeting obtained and verified by NBC News, ProPublica, and The Texas Tribune.
