ANNVILLE - The Annville-Cleona School Board on Thursday voted to remove an award-winning children's book from its elementary schools after a student's parents objected to some of the book's illustrations.


"They were asked what do you feel might be the result of viewing or reading this material, and their answer was, 'Children may come to the conclusion that looking at nudity is OK, and therefore pornography is OK,'"

Source

This is just sickening. Simple, harmless illustrations that don't have any sexual implication and do not even show genitalia will not lead children to believe that looking at pornography is ok. The people make some good points in the comments. These parents need to wake up and look around... As one comment says, just walk into your local Walmart and you'll see more skin and sin.


The book received numerous awards, including the International Reading Association award in 2004, the Parents Choice Gold Medal, and the Bulletin Blue Ribbon from the Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books.


But yet all it takes is the ignorance and stupidity of one person. It feels like we're still in the dark ages.

There we go again! Nudity is bad, but the images of bleeding corpses, violence and murder is OK.
True freedom begins with nudity. The removal of the same and the distortion of nudity and sexuality is the 1st step to slavery and true perversion. But then again, how can TPTB have a ready suply of mindless sadists joining their opressive armies and other enforcement agencies, if the same people would have learned to simply enjoy their bodies and the beauty of nudity.

I will never understand the Americans and their big problem with Nudity and Sex.
What is wrong with those people?


As for the topic: The pictures aren't in any way sexual or suggesst anything. It's just a human without close which is natural. Completely ridiculous.

It may well have something to do with an overwhelming amount of the population spend their sundays allowing some self titled snake oils salesman to tell them how to think.

That was a remarkably off topic pointless reply but I like your avatar so you get away with it.

Ha ha - I almost responded to the urban dictionary post with "Wrong thread?" But then I read the OP's source. The banned book is "Dirty Cowboy."

Ah, those were the days, when naked arms were pornographic I did hear that the T shirt industry lobbyists spent billions persuading the clergy that arms were ok but people should be locked up for having their jeans cut too low.

By this logic, we should ban money.

Seeing what money can buy may lead to wars, corruption and thievery.

Ban money.

Ban money.


People like the secret service use money to buy prostitutes and porn, Strippers and pornstars do it for the money...

People kill for money..

People lie for money..

People commit suicide over money..

Money it seems is a very dark thing and yes we should ban it

Just a question.... I'm wondering how many of you that are opposed to the parents here are also in favor of removing the pledge of allegiance from school because of "Under God" or "in God we trust" from the money? Censorship is censorship, so for those that are in favor of what I have just mentioned, you are a hypocrite. I wouldn't want my daughter reading this book, and I could care less what kind of "awards" this book has won by some progressive, globalist / secular association(s).

The entire theme of the book is obviously some kind of fibrillating palpitating ultra liberal left wingie dingie attempt to sell garbage to young school kids.


The illustrator cleverly uses various items, such as birds and a boot, to cover the boy's genitals while he is bathing and then while he is attempting to get his clothes back.

The book received numerous awards, including the International Reading Association award in 2004, the Parents Choice Gold Medal, and the Bulletin Blue Ribbon from the Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books.


The awards process is obviously some kind of money mumbo jumbo and should be stripped of all merit.

The book is filth


The book's author(s) have zero taste.

The book is more on the level of late teen, early 20's sick-o jibberish.



The book, illustrated by Adam Rex, is the story of a young cowboy who needs his annual bath

Real Classy ^^^


Only "intellectuals" have THAT kind of "Taste"

Just saw some of the illustrations from The Dirty Cowboy. It looks like a great kids book. Excellent art work.

Probably not thought of as pornographic by more than a handful of feeble minded folk.

"Oh, give me a home where the Buffalo roam: Where the Deer and the Antelope play;: Where never is heard a discouraging word..and nobody ever takes off their @$%# clothes..OK!"

I think i just realised how much christianity held human beings back, what the hell??
The irony of course being that come puberty these kids are naturally gonna try and catch a glimpse of the opposite sex whether that be via a photograph, video or the real deal!

I really dont know whats wrong with people! I feel sorry for there children!
