NJ School District Yanks Lesbian Sex Book From Required Summer Reading List

A New Jersey school district has apologized to parents after requiring high school students to read books that include graphic depictions of lesbian sex and a homosexual orgy.

“Some of the language is inappropriate,” said Chuck Earling, superintendent of Monroe Township Schools in Williamstown, N.J. “We were not trying to create controversy. We were just trying to get students to read.”

The books were on a required summer reading list for middle school and high school students. The district decided to pull the book off the list, with the start of school just days away.

“There were some words and language that seemed to be inappropriate as far as the parents and some of the kids were concerned,” Earling said.

There's the key... "as far as the parents and some of the kids were concerned". In other words, the school itself, represented by Earling, DOES NOT SEE A PROBLEM WITH THIS AT ALL!!!!

“Some of the language is inappropriate,”

Only "SOME" of the language? How about the topic?

If backward unsophisticated folks would just let the enlightened experts have their way, everything would be just fine.

Earling said the school district’s summer reading list was prepared by a committee made up of teachers, librarians and school administrators. The board of education ultimately approved the list.

“They read the books,” he said. “They didn’t feel it was inappropriate based on the language that’s used, common language used on the street.” The superintendent said students have seen more graphic things on television or in the movies – and noted that only about a dozen people actually complained.


I can just see this smarmy academic elitist shrugging his shoulders and smuggly dismissing this as no big deal... we'll just update the list to include a rating system.

Nope. If its written or drawn then its not “kiddie porn” legally speaking. There are tons of “incest stories” sites online.

The Brazilian government recently had a sex-ed video that showed a young boy beating off to dreams of sex with an older man. Pedophile dream come true.

These perverts are running the schools and Hollywierd

If anything at all in this world increases liberals’ chances of getting laid—they fully support it.

Wrong ideological message for those currently in power! The Homosexual agenda is more important to them.

Nah. Not relevant in today’s world. Best stick to the garbage kids see and hear everyday. It’s easier that way.

You can tell a lot about a school’s culture by checking up on the reading list.

You can tell a lot about school administrators when they make stupid comments like this one did.

Chuck Earling is no academic, I am quite surprised he can even read. He is a typical bureaucrat that has spent his entire adult life on the public dole and quite frankly is too stupid to be qualified for a job in the real world.

Some people need to be unemployed. Promptly.

Some snips from the local paper:

One such selection, “Norwegian Wood,” which was on the required reading list for incoming tenth-grade honors English students, includes a graphic depiction of a lesbian sex scene between a 31-year-old woman and a 13-year-old girl.

“Norwegian Wood”?

Regading lesbian sex scenes?

Seems to me these pervs are a little too unclear on the concept.

"We were just trying to get students to read.”

That's pathetic. My kids all read all the time ... when they're supposed to be eating, when they're supposed to be doing chores, when they're in the bathroom. Anoreth took the Federalist Papers on a date, "in case I get bored."

The students in this article probably can't decode and process text well enough even to enjoy the homosexual orgy.
