Some people have to much time on their hands. If you don't want your kids to eat the book then don't let them read it. Don't try to ban the book that from the looks of it, a lot of people like it

Is this one of those one million mom type bully groups that tries to enforce their opinions on other people because they think they know what's best for everyone?? :P

The thing with censorship that gets to me is the fact that by banning a book they only make it more popular.  I am against any and all censorship.  We are a nation founded on the right of free speech.  Censorship acts against that right.  I actually want to read this book now.  If I hadn't read this post I might not have even thought twice about it.  The people who censor books actually end up working against themselves in the end. 

lol yep they are just promoting the book for the auther.lol he should thank them,I bet those ladies would love that lol


I am a busy working mom to two very active girls.  I love my kids, play on the floor in the fort with them, take them to the park, and love them always!  I can't imagine life without them!

 oh brother. nobody is forcing anyone to read it. if you don't want to read it then don't. if you don't want your kids reading it don't let them. i doubt it's sitting in the children's section.

Yeah, because Naked Lunch, 120 nights of Sodom, and The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty (all available at your local public library) are not pornographic in the least. I worked in a library for years. The materiel there, including 'unrated' dvd's is available to anyone who can find it on a shelf. This is why it pays to not pawn your children off onto the librarians for free babysitting services.
