Seducing Teen Girls Leftward: 10 Shocking Items Lurking on the Library Shelves
NewsReal ^ | November 28, 2010 | Megan Fox

Posted on 11/28/2010 5:04:00 PM PST by TheHawksNest

Where can you find oral sex, drug use, a fondness for big government social programs and addictions to multiple sexual partners? If you immediately thought of the Clinton Presidential Library, you’re close, but it’s not the only library dedicated to debauchery.

I have spent the last week reading books and magazines I randomly selected off the public library shelves. I literally closed my eyes and just started grabbing stuff, which makes what I found that much more disturbing. The results of this experiment are filled with leftist brainwashing, explicit sex, foul language, drug use, alcohol abuse, permissive parents, abusive parents and much more.

Please understand, the following material contains language that is pornographic and obscene. But if you don’t see it with your own eyes, I doubt you would believe that any publishing house is hawking this stuff to children.

Besides the kiddie porn, the political elements dropped into these books and magazines are insidious. Never have I found conservative talking points in any of the “hot reading lists” for kids. But if your kid suddenly wants to turn vegan, save a baby seal and/or polar bears, and has developed an inexplicable dislike for the NRA, check their backpack for one or more of the following tomes.

The publications she discusses in this article can be found in the young adult section of public libraries across the United States. In many cases, children can access these materials without any parental guidance. The last few on the list are especially appalling in how sexually explicit they are, and because these books and magazines aren't necessarily bestsellers, many slip under the radar. The 10 items reviewed are:

  1. Frogs and French Kisses by Sarah Mlynowski
  2. The Breakup Bible by Melissa Kantor
  3. New Moon Girls Magazine, November/December 2010
  4. Faces; People, Places and Cultures, October 2010 issue
  5. Losing Louisa by Judith Caseley
  6. Girls' Life Magazine
  7. Friends with Benefits by Melody Mayer
  8. Some Like it Hot (An A-List Novel) by Zoey Dean
  9. Ready or Not by Meg Cabot
  10. Rainbow Party by Paul Ruditis

I once glanced at a book pulled off the shelf called "The Day America Told The Truth."

It was hailed by the evangelical talking heads of the day, who apparently hadn't read the sexually explicit material that I saw on the first page I flipped to.

I could have done without it.

It’s still a free country. If you aren’t teaching your children how to filter crap then it’s your fault.
At the same time it is important to pressure your library to provide readings with an alternate point of view.

The government wants kids to be sexually active. Planned Parenthood thinks girls should learn to enjoy sex by 10. Tax funded they are.

Libraries don’t feel pressure, they’ll just get worse and worse. They should not be publicly funded.

Ugh. A quote from the review of "Rainbow Party" on the last page of the article:
His book begins with two girls, around 15 years old, in the drugstore choosing lipsticks for a mysterious party. You get the drift pretty quick that it’s downright dirty and is going to include lots of party favors in the form of adolescent girls on their knees leaving lipstick marks on boys in their class.
I guess I know what a "rainbow party" is now. I have no words.

They sound horrible. I mean, as well as awful, boring and not very entertaining.

The American Library Association, in addition to being a haven for militant lesbians, is about as far Left and politically correct an organization as you'll find in the U.S. It's no accident you found those books. There are plenty more like them.

Have a look at ALA's issues and advocacy topics: ALA ISSUES AND ADVOCACY

It’s been this way in libraries for a LONG time. If you take your kids there, help them pick out their books, and refuse some of their choices.

In the Young Adult or Teen section, when I was in that category, I learned all there was to know about sex and drugs in those “hip” books they always carried, like Go Ask Alice and whatnot.

Perhaps the kids should just start having sex in the libraries.

A child left (maybe deliberately?) a book at church some time ago — it was part of the “Scholastic Book Club,” or something to that effect.

I tried reading it — there were many misspelled words. I suppose the author was trying to be funny, but I thought such a book should not be part of anything called
the “Scholastic Book Club.”

However I guess it’s tame now that I see what other choices are available.

Does it really come as a surprise to anyone that these things occur in books written for adults? It’s part of that First Amendment thing...

Nothing to see here.

I remember Go Ask Alice. I learned why I would never want to do drugs.

These are books and magazines written for a "tween" and teen audience. Writing the books is protected speech; using tax dollars to make them available to children without parental permission is most certainly not.

What about “Lolita” by Vladimir Nabokov? The novel and 2 movies.

“It’s still a free country. If you aren’t teaching your children how to filter crap then it’s your fault.”

Hey, those are PUBLIC funds going to buy those books.

If someone wants to spend their money on this crap for their teen-agers, that’s another discussion, but there is no reason for public funds to ever be used for this type of smut.

>>>What about “Lolita” by Vladimir Nabokov? The novel and 2 movies.<<<

First a rebuke, then agreement.

“Lolita” is obviously written for adults. The language, the presentation, and the characterization is designed for adults. Not many high school students would read it and enjoy it. Having said that....

“Lolita” is part of a trend which is continuing with these books for teenagers. The trend is to “push the envelope” so things that used to private and sacred - like sex with consenting adults - becomes something that is desanctified and political. Think about everything that’s been popularized since “Lolita,” and you can see a clear trend toward greater sexualization, a greater acceptance of pornography, and less and less judgment applied to sexuality in general. You can see it in movies and television, hear it in music lyrics... you can even see it in the fact that we’re discussing it right now in an open forum, whereas 50 years ago a fair number of people would have just been too embarrassed to speak about these topics out loud.

In fact, the trend started way before “Lolita.” And where it will end... well, every time I think we’ve hit bottom, there’s a new bottom. Maybe Huxley had the future right after all. Or maybe we will rediscover modesty and shame. Who knows?
