I am not big on book baning and I haven't read the book so I don't know how I would feel about that.

I think banning books is completely insane, if you don't want your kid to read it then don't let them.

It's really not that hard of a concept, these moms have no life and just want to have attention.

I do not agree with banning books. If you don't want your kid to read something don't let them. My mom let me read whatever I wanted when I was a kid including danielle Steele books. It didn't make me go out and do the things in the books!

Remember when some moms tried to have Harry Potter banned?

The only thing I could maybe see is that you had to be a certain age check out the book from a library.

Maybe rate the books like movies and you have to be 18+ to check out a "rated R" book

If we can allow Catcher in the Rye, then we can allow this.
