I’m very fortunate to be married to a woman who, in spite of her upbringing in a fundamentalist cult, has grown up and mostly out of closed-mindedness. We now agree, for example, that (when we can afford to) we will obtain every single commonly “challenged book” and be sure they find prominent placement on each our our children’s age-appropriate shelves.
Found today a good letter from a librarian to a patron who had asked for a book to be “reconsidered”.
This particular case seems to me like another example of a parent trying to control what their child reads in order that the child not ask uncomfortable questions.
I ask “what the hell else are books good for?”
And yes, we will probably be buying “Uncle Bobby’s Wedding”.
