No! I will not make snarky jokes about this. I will refrain....

But it is oh so tempting.

Translated: “We wanted to quietly push gay acceptance on your kids because we didn’t think you’d see it on their summer reading list. You did, so we’ll just say we wanted to get the kids to read.”

Isn’t August 23rd a little late in the game to be removing a book from the required summer reading list?

We are not trying to create controversy, we are trying to get students to read? There are some people that are too damned dumb to be involved in the education of youngsters.
It seems to me someone is trying to get a date from a youngster?

I liked “Another night in the Dugout”, a novel by Charlie Moansweat. It was on my summer lesbian reading list. It was about a female softball team who never played a game that didn’t go extra innings, and everyone took a turn pitching and catching.

Not good enough. I want to know WHO proposed putting such material on childrens’ reading lists, and WHY they are still employed, and also WHY they are not being charged crimes such as contributing to the delinquencies of minors.

You mean that middle-school children shouldn't read a loving depiction a 31 year old lesbian pedophile victimizing a 13 year old girl, or another book about methamphetamine use and a homosexual orgy? Who knew?

One book, “Norwegian Wood,” was on a list for incoming sophomores in an honors English class. The book includes a graphic depiction of a lesbian sex scene between a 31-year-old woman and a 13-year old girl, according to a report first published in the Gloucester County Times...

Child rape = a celebration of diversity.

Leftists are twisted into knots.

I’d say the district made sort of a bush league mistake on this one.

We need some TEA partiers to run for the seats on this board and allow some adults to be heard. These people on the current board are morons.

By the way, this is being done in Texas and we are winning a good number of seats.

So I google "Norwegian Wood lesbian" and find that the original song lyrics were said to be about John Lennon's encounter with a lesbian.

Other speculation: that he burns down her apartment after she doesn't have sex with him. I don't think there's much substance to either theory, but the lyrics are pretty thin, though the tune is pretty.

There doesn't seem to be that much to the book either. It was probably recommended because it was about young people. I don't know how much of a role lesbianism plays in it. It's not the main theme.

Reader Review:

UGH!!!

This book bugged the hell out of me for a few reasons:

#1. There is a somewhat extended passage devoted to a lesbian encounter that wouldn't be so terrible in and of itself, as sex in general is a major topic BUT the novel as a whole leaned towards describing the physiological experience the woman were having and would brush over the mens again and again. There would be like 5 paragraphs on the woman and then 1 sentence were it would say something along the lines of, "she took me in her hand and I came".

GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

It seemed like an exercise in writing (hmmmm, what would it be like to write from the females perspective) more than a contributor factor to the story.

#2. The girls in this book were all needy, dysfunctional, emotional or detached but sexy as all get out while the male was unsentimental, level headed and also sexy.

#3. the main male character had sex with 3 of the girl main characters (as well as countless unnamed characters) and apparently he was FABULOUS at it because 2 of the characters decided that they would never have sex again. that it could never measure up.

OH BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTHER!!!!!!!!!!!

“We were not trying to create controversy. We were just trying to get students to read.”

Liars...There are millions of books out there to read that do not have lesbian sex scenes in them...
