Gay Penguins

Ah, the gay penguins are creating controversy yet again (and I'm procrastinating yet again). Some parents are complaing that the book about the gay penuins at the New York City Zoo is in the kids section.
They feel that:
the book tackles topics their young children aren't ready to handle.

Their request: Move the book to the library's regular shelves and restrict it to a section for mature issues, perhaps even requiring parental permission before their child can check it out.

My question is, are their kids really not ready to handle this or are the parents not ready to handle the thought that their kids might be able to handle it just fine?
