Book banning in 2021

Thursday, November 25, 2021 2:27 PM
[view link] One school board member called for the offending books to be burned. “I think we should throw those books in a fire,” he said. “I guess we live in a world now that our public schools would rather have kids read about gay pornography than Christ.” Why the fuck are they teaching any kids about Christ in public fucking school? Can we try maybe like math & reading? Cause we certainly haven't aced that in America yet.

This is the smut they are banning: [view link] I have read several, and I do not believe in Christ, so maybe they have a point!

This is the playbook of small-minded authoritarians.

Several of those are my favorites especially the Hemingway and Faulkner novels, BTW I have actually read every book on that list most more than once

This is amazingly stupid - you don’t progress by eliminating history. Without looking at the full list, there any non-white authors? Funny how the left wing cancel culture is trying to cancel those already dead. 🤪🤪🤪

Yet tearing down statues and changing names for political correctness is ok.

I agree with a parent's right to control what their OWN kids see as far a fictional works go. There should be a list of books kids aren't allowed to check out, if the parent has drawn a swastika on the kid's library card. But if you don't want your kids to hear the truth in US history class, pony up, send them to a private school.

Just don’t ban “Our Bodies, Ourselves” Every adolescent boy from the 70’s discovered it in the library and it was like winning the lottery

>This is the smut they are banning: >[view link] That list doesn't have anything to do with the article. That list is record of past instances that books were banned or attempted to be banned. What the article doesn't tell you is that some of the books parents want removed are sexually explicit books made available to elementary and middle school students. Other books that concern parents are so-called "anti-racist" books and gender ideology books. examples: [view link] [view link] [view link] video showing graphic book available in VA DC area high schools. [view link] >Why the fuck are they teaching any kids about Christ in public fucking school? They should because it's a major part of history and sociology and still a huge influence on modern society. All the major religions should be studied but not preached. Personally I was never taught anything about religion in public school.

Banning “To Kill a Mockingbird” in the past by various school districts always puzzled me. They banned the book because of the “N” word while ignoring the overarching message of prejudice and equal rights

If gay porn and Christ are my only choices I'll take the gay porn I guess?
