...celebrity blogger Perez Hilton begins his book with He was born that way the Boy with Pink Hair. Parents who arent fans of the controversial, sometimes pink-haired Hilton dont have much reason to get riled up about his new childrens book. It tells the simple story of a boy with bright, cotton-candy hair who gets bullied, makes a friend, and discovers a true passion. No, the Boy with Pink Hair isnt a euphemism for Boy with Homosexual Tendencies, as some may fear; the book will appeal to creative kids who may have been picked on for their offbeat interests.

Yikes. Kids book or not-I don't want to know!
It will be required reading for every first grader in the California public school system.
No, the Boy with Pink Hair isnt a euphemism for Boy with Homosexual Tendencies,
But what America really wants to know, Perez, is...when you hit puberty, did it start growing out that color, too?
It takes more than pink hair to make a book pro-gay. Since I have not seen said book, I’m in no position to judge one way or the other.
Perez is sick.
I was gonna say she just stole the idea from The Boy With Green Hair and changed the color. Nothing new under the sun. I did like that movie, though.
Finding a curiously silent young runaway boy (Stockwell) whose head has been completely shaved, small-town police call in a psychologist (Ryan) and discover that he is a war orphan named Peter Frye. Moving in with an understanding retired actor named Gramps (O’Brien), Peter starts attending school and generally begins living the life of a normal boy until his class gets involved with trying to help war orphans in Europe and Asia.
Peter soon realizes thatlike the children on the posters, whose images haunt himhe, too, is a war orphan. The realization about his parents and the work helping the orphans makes Peter turn very serious, and he is further troubled when he overhears the adults around him talking about the world preparing for another war. Peter awakens the next day and his hair has turned green, prompting him to run away after being taunted by the townspeople and his peers. Suddenly, appearing before him in a lonely part of the woods are the orphaned children whose pictures he saw on the posters.
They tell him that he is a war orphan, but that with his green hair he can make a difference and must tell people that war is dangerous for children. He leaves determined to deliver his message to any and all. Upon his return, the townspeople chase Peter, and even Gramps tries to encourage him to consider shaving his hair so that it might grow back normally. He agrees to get his head shaved, and the town barber does the jobthat night, however, Peter runs away. Later reunited with Gramps, Peter learns that there are adults out there who accept what he has to say and want him to go on saying it. He’s sure that his hair will grow back in green again, and he will continue to carry his message.
The new Dr. Seuss
You do realize that Perez is a gay guy.
No we do not want to know that, he is a pig.
We are living in the last days.
I have only the vaguest recollection of my parents taking me to see that movie back in the 1940s. I may have to watch it again, now that I’m a seasoned citizen.
Didn’t he play a horny hologram in Quantum Leap?
hear = hair... darn this sticky key board :o)
Oh, I thought it was Paris Hilton! LOL
He sure did... he also played one of the bad cyborgs in Battlestar Galactica.
I’m barely old enough to remember it ;)
I do remember how outrageous it seemed at the time to sport green hair. The country’s gotten considerably more jaded since.
