Chicago Area Mom Demands Ban On Racy Book

Although She acknowledged that it's ultimately up to parents to decide what's best for their children, but she said parents are supposed to be able to trust school officials to choose appropriate material.

"No parent can go and read all six books to preview them," she said, who plans to take her concerns to the school board at its August meeting. She objected to the title "Fat Kid Rules the World."

14 year old

If her 14 year old is not familiar with smoking, drinking, drugs and profanity he's going to be in a world of hurt when he gets to college.There's a reason that sheltered kids and Evangelical types have more unprotected sex, get pregnant younger.Like they'll just all of a sudden be able to deal with adult stuff when they turn 18 and when they're 17 years and 364 days they'll be playing hopscotch and kickball.

Say what, now?

"No parent can go and read all six books to preview them,"

They can't? Why not? I certainly could. And I would think that any parent who was willing to actually expend energy to raise their child would as well. Sounds to me as if she just doesn't want to be bothered with parenting.

Re:Say what, now?

Yep.

Really? Do share your source as I'm sure calumny played no part.

Specific information can be found at my web site: Censorship by the Bush Administration, Second Term, and in this series of quotations from Harmful To Minors. Surf to those pages, do a keyword search for "abstinence".

Re:14 year old

What exactly am I looking at here Fang? How about a specific citation, link to something speaking to evangelical kids. A non-tendentious source would be nice too, like the one here from the CDC .

According to your supposition, black and hispanic kids are 3 times more likely to be reared in an evangelical, sheltered homes.

Re:14 year old

Sorry, is that the same Center for Disease Control that is now an outlet for the censorial, ultra-conservative Bush regime? The one that now posts government-approved sexuality "information" only?

Your demand for a "non-tendentious" source is question-begging bullshit that is quite in keeping with your penchant for validating information based on where it is published. Non-facts do not become factual just because they parallel a person's prejudices. Abstinence Only ignorance is an abject failure from start to finish.

Re:14 year old

So you disagree blacks and hispanics pregnancy rates are, on average, 300% higher than whites? A simple "yes", "no" sufficient here.

Re:14 year old

I'm sure you'd think so given that you are a binary thinker without any capacity for naunce.
