An anonymous complaint was made about the reading of the sexually graphic LGBT book “Gender Queer” in a Massachusetts middle school.
Police were called to investigate, but the book was not found in the classroom.
The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office dropped the investigation, stating it was a matter for the school district. (Trending: Joe Biden Emailed Hunter’s Business Associates 54 Times)
This incident sparked controversy, with LGBT advocates and Governor Maura Healey opposing book banning, while the book’s author, Maia Kobabe, clarified that it was not intended for children.
“It keeps being called a children’s book … but I think that’s coming from a misreading of the comic-book form,” Kobabe said.
“‘Gender Queer’ is a comic, and in full color, but that doesn’t mean it’s for children.”
“I originally wrote it for my parents, and then for older teens who were already asking these questions about themselves.”
“I don’t recommend this book for kids!” she said.
Senator John Kennedy also read graphic passages from the book during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
“I got a new strap-on harness today. I can’t wait to put it on you. It will fit my favorite dildo perfectly,” Kennedy read from the book.
“I can’t wait to have your c— in my mouth.”
“I’m going to give you the best b—job of your life, then I want you inside of me.”
Sen. Kennedy reads passages from pornographic books Genderqueer and All Boys are Blue.
