‘Gender Queer’ and ‘The V-Word’: Republican AG Releases Report On ‘Sexually Explicit’ Children’s Books In Libraries

Activists gather outside U.S. Supreme Court as justices hear arguments in case involving LGBT rights in Washington

“My first time getting it in the butt was kind of weird. … I was a freshman, and it was winter break, right before everyone left for vacation — a big holiday blowout party,” reads a passage from “Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts).” “There was this senior from another school, and we were drinking and flirting, and eventually we took off together.”

The book also explains in detail how to perform oral sex.

“You told me to take-off my pajama pants, which I did. You then took off your shorts, followed by your boxers,” “All Boys Aren’t Blue” reads. “There you stood in front of me fully erect and said, ‘Taste it.’ At first, I laughed and refused. But then you said, ‘Come on, Matt, taste it. This is what other boys like us do when we like each other.’ I finally listened to you.”

“The V-Word” includes various essays written by women about losing their virginity in their teenage years.

“Let me be clear so that there is zero confusion,” Landry said Tuesday. “Nowhere in this report do we call for the censoring or banning of books. This is about what’s appropriate for children. This is about giving parents the ability to control the information that their children see or have access to in public libraries.”

The model legislation defines “sexual conduct” as masturbation or lewd acts, sadomasochistic abuse and other sexual acts. The legislation included in the report would restrict minors’ access to specific sections of the library without parental approval.

“This is not a political issue. This is about giving parents and officials the tools they requested to protect Louisiana’s children from sexually explicit material that is inappropriate for their age,” he said. “This doesn’t mean that we’re banning or censoring voices. It does mean that some books should be relocated away from small children and that the ability of those children to check out certain materials should be limited to what their parents and guardians allow.”

The report also included general information about libraries, links to public libraries’ policies, and sample letters to send to library and state leaders with concerns about material found in available books.
