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.

KEYWORDS: childabuse; culturewar; culturewars; nasty; pornography; publiclibraries
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.

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.

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?

I was just thinking about this the other day. When I was a kid (50s through mid 60s) I practically lived at the library. I moved a lot, and every school and public library would become well known to me. I read biographies, classics and books written for "middle aged" children and adolescents. The books I read might as well have come from the 1200s compared to the vile poison kids are now exposed to. Even in the 1980s when I home schooled my and some other peoples' children, I could not believe how degraded children's "literature" had become. For those who say that it's up to parents to protect their children from filth that degrades morals and ruins innocence, I reply that it is impossible unless the parent accompanies the child everywhere they go like a jailer, or homeschools; unless they can find a really good private school.

Another point is that childrens' minds are easily corrupted by filth - meaning sexually explicit material, or books that promote leftist garbage, rebellion against parents and religion, and so on.

The need to protect children from such material was a common cultural understanding a couple of generations ago. Now it's "Toss them into the fire as soon as possible".

Licentiousness in the false name of "freedom" is liberaltarianism at its worst. The Constitution was never meant to protect obscene or pornographic material.

Of course, the protagonist in Lolita ends up dead (as I believe does Lolita herself).

This “trend” has its ups and downs. I believe in the 70s, Playboy had playmates as young as 16. And, honestly, the advent of online [often free] porn dwarfs whatever impact the referenced books wil have.

One day, maybe within 50 years or so, you’ll no doubt be able to “download” sexual experiences directly into your brain. Chances are I won’t be around for that, however.

It’s Sunday night and I was struggling, again, with our decision to homeschool our kids. Not anymore.

Just heard my five year old tell her big sister that “I love Sarah Palin” (guess what our Sunday night viewing is...)

Homeschool, and never, never, look back. Government schools are poison. They are nothing more than a jobs program for the left, a welfare program for the middleclass, and re-education camps for the children.

E. Michael Jones wrote a most interesting book, Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation and Political Control. The thesis is taken from a quote from St. Augustine:

“Thus, a good man though a slave is free; but a wicked man, though a king, is a slave. For he serves not one man alone, but, what is worse, as many masters as he has vices.”

Aw, how sweet that your daughter loves Sarah Palin! Best of luck with the homeschooling - everyone I know who has done it finds that the rewards far outweigh the drawbacks.

I emailed my son’s (homeschool association) debate coach this evening, and observed that a couple of proposed topics for an upcoming tournament involved legalizing marijuana. These are topics submitted by the students.

The coach replied that the more time he spends judging debate tournaments, the more determined he is to continue homeschooling his own children until graduation. Good education (good test scores, scholarships) aside, the students in many schools are swallowing moral poison, and although the debate competitors are being taught to argue effectively, that doesn’t mean they’re actually *reasoning* from reality.

I remember this from the early 80s, when I was a top student in a public high school. My SAT score made college recruiters swoon.

Well said...

I believe that what we are seeing is actually our government (politicians, public schools, libraries, etc) now reflecting the culture that we have allowed to develop. This has happened over several generations by small “allowances” being made. This is hard for most of us to accept since that means that we have some of the responsibility for this on our shoulders. Over the years I have heard the “personal responsibility” phrase used but when it came to actually having it, few (as a percentage) took it on.

Why have we accepted having the government “educate” our children? Was it because it was easier on us, it cost us less (average of about $11,000 per student), we did not feel qualified, we don't have the time? Those are all statements I have heard from friends. But at what cost...? We have known for a long time about the problems with public education but as a culture continue to send the children into the mess. Is it that much of a surprise that the libraries are following the lead of the schools?

I believe that we have now developed into a culture that is very self centered and, short of a major move of God within the families and the church, we are going to have some major problems. We need to move away from looking to the government as part of the answer for education (this would include schools and libraries), for financial security (social security, etc), and for setting moral rules. We need to return to God's standards and follow His guidelines...Following God leads to freedom, following man (government) leads to slavery...choose freedom.

God bless

Agreed. Parents today are often paranoid about threats from pedophiles, germs and bullies. They might be advised to consider the threat to their children's minds and hearts as well.
