Virginia Public Schools Reinstates Two Books Despite Complaints of Pedophilia and Pornography

Fairfax County Public Schools has reinstated two books despite complaints from parents that the literature depicted and legitimized obscene and pedophilic material. Parents confronted the school board with the graphic images contained in the books beginning in September. Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) announced the books were restored to libraries after two committees reviewed them.

The books, “Lawn Boy” and “Gender Queer” have been determined by the District as helpful to the LGBTQ community. Fox News reports “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison includes long sections of a boy reminiscing about explicit experiences he had at 10 years old. “Gender Queer: A Memoir” is by Maia Kobabe and includes photos of sexual acts between a boy and a man.

Virginia mother and president of Parents Defending Education, Nicole Nelly, told Fox News last week, “It’s appalling that Fairfax County’s response to parental feedback is to quibble over the definition of ‘pedophilia’ and to shame and denigrate families who are concerned about this material.”

“By attempting to normalize this content – and reinstating these books under cover of darkness right before Thanksgiving break – FCPS has demonstrated that in their eyes, parental input is a bug, not a feature, in the system” added Nelly.

In an interview with Fox News, Stacy Langton, one of the mothers who first confronted the school board, says “plenty” of Democrats and liberals are also calling her to say they “don’t want their kids exposed to this in school…this is FCPS coming out and explicitly saying they are in favor of porn in schools for your children.”

FCPS, however, claims that two committees comprised of school administrators, librarians, parents, and students determined that the books did not contain pedophilia, nor did they violate regulations by including obscene material.

“The decision reaffirms FCPS’s ongoing commitment to provide diverse reading materials that reflect on our student population, allowing every child an opportunity to see themselves reflected in literary characters” said FCPS in a released statement.

“Both reviews concluded that the books were valuable in their potential to reach marginalized youth who may struggle to find relatable literary characters that reflect their personal journeys” the statement continued.

Michael Sabbeth, Colorado attorney and author of “The Good, The Bad & The Difference: How to Talk With Children About Values” says “the Board’s assertion cleverly employs a logical fallacy—a strawman argument.”

While the board’s “refutation alleges the material affirms students with ‘marginalized identities’ and acknowledges the ‘difficulties nonbinary and asexual individuals may face’, their justification ignores and fails to negate allegations of obscenity, pornography and or pedophilia” states Sabbeth.

“Ironically, the Board’s justification demeans those it alleges to support. If, for example, pedophilia is in a book, arguing it helps youngsters is morally beneath contempt. To virtuously support those individuals, the Board need do no more than advance this unambiguous message: Treat all people respectfully” Sabbeth concludes.

    We had the same book, Gender Queer in our school library . Our school district has this available to 6-8 9-12!!! The parents, grandparents and others bombarded the district, it was removed for about one week. The Library Media Specialist deemed it just fine and guess what? It’s back on the shelf! We are a tiny district about 50 miles north of NYC. A very conservative town. 90% of our school board has lost their minds. We have had an influx of progressives in the last year. Our district K- 12 has about 950 students. We feel helpless and are wondering if law enforcement can confiscate the pirn

      The immediate solution is not rocket science. REMOVE YOUR CHILDREN FROM THE SCHOOL !

      How about you guys get together and hire a competent lawyer and sue those responsible? Crying over something like this accomplishes nothing. It is time to fight back. How about weekly marches in front of the school or the board offices? The time has come to fight back, and get out of your lethargy and learned helplessness. And teach your children, by george, you must take an active part against this brainwashing.. if you do it right it will backfire on the culprits.

    Gee, I remember a time when porn, of any type, written or depicted, was illegal to possess in a school or on it’s property. When child porn was illegal to possess, written or depicted, anywhere and if caught with it, made you subject to jail time. Thanks to the left, that’s all been changed and our kids are now subjects for the depraved to accost.

    You are not dealing with ‘people’, you are dealing with minions of the devil. The orders come down from him, and to them, those orders are paramount. YOU mean nothing. Destroy society, destroy freedom, destroy families, destroy the U.S., etc., THAT is all that matters to the devil. “All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing”. Doing ‘something’ means to pray AND stand firm for what is RIGHT ….. and not leave it up to someone else.

    This school district is pushing child sexual exploitation and they should be charged with crimes.

    I believe school boards are elected. This board is obviously composed of a majority of sexual perverts. Perhaps at a little more attention next election. Few things are more important than educating our children. Look how education has failed the current board.

      The school board should most certainly be voted OUT.
      But in the meantime, children are being damaged and defiled and need to be REMOVED NOW from the school!

    swipe the books and throw them in the trash. When they’re replaced…swipe them again. Democrats would call that activism!

    All of this only reinforces how stupid it is to risk imprisonment for having child porn on personal computers when all they had to do was ask their kid to check out said porn for them from the elementary school library.

Multiple states launch lawsuit against Biden’s student-loan forgiveness plan

Published

Breaking Thursday, the states of Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa, and South Carolina joined together to file a lawsuit against President Biden’s administration in order to stop the student loan-forgiveness program from taking effect.

“In addition to being economically unwise and downright unfair, the Biden Administration’s Mass Debt Cancellation is yet another example in a long line of unlawful regulatory actions,” argued the plaintiffs in their filing.

The attorneys general spearheading the legal challenge also submit that “no statute permits President Biden to unilaterally relieve millions of individuals from their obligation to pay loans they voluntarily assumed.”

Biden, however, has argued that he is able to unilaterally cancel student debt to mitigate the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Specifically, writes National Review, a Department of Education memo released by his administration asserts that the HEROES Act,  which passed in 2003 and allows the secretary of education to provide student-debt relief “in connection with a war or other military operation or national emergency,” provides the legal basis for the cancellation.

But, National Review notes that the plaintiffs point out that Biden declared in a recent 60 Minutes interview that “the pandemic is over.”

The legal brief also adds:

“The [HEROES] Act requires ED [Education Department] to tailor any waiver or modification as necessary to address the actual financial harm suffered by a borrower due to the relevant military operation or emergency… This relief comes to every borrower regardless of whether her income rose or fell during the pandemic or whether she is in a better position today as to her student loans than before the pandemic.”

Moreover, they argue that the HEROES Act was designed to allow the secretary to provide relief in individual cases with proper justification.

The first lawsuit against Biden’s executive order came Tuesday from the Pacific Legal Foundation:

“The administration has created new problems for borrowers in at least six states that tax loan cancellation as income. People like Plaintiff Frank Garrison will actually be worse off because of the cancellation. Indeed, Mr. Garrison will face immediate tax liability from the state of Indiana because of the automatic cancellation of a portion of his debt,” wrote PLF in their own brief.

The state-led lawsuit was filed in a federal district court in Missouri, and asks that the court “temporarily restrain and preliminarily and permanently enjoin implementation and enforcement of the Mass Debt Cancellation,” and declare that it “violates the separation of powers established by the U.S. Constitution,” as well as the Administrative Procedure Act.
