    I’m surprised when any book is banned or challenged, but the continual obsession with challenging The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian absolutely stupefies me. That book has the tamest sexual content I’ve ever seen. I’m stunned people can find anything to object to.

    They banned a book about soldiers for profanity?  What’s next, a soldier’s right to breathe?

    Banned books are almost consistently really good. You want a recommended-reading list, here it is.

    Banned for being grammatically incorrect.

    …Isn’t Speak about a girl’s haunting struggles with rape?

    …”softcore pornography”

    YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT AND THAT IS WHY I AM SO ANGRY BECAUSE WHEN THEY SAY “softcore pornography” WHAT THEY MEAN IS AN NON-DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF A GIRL GETTING RAPED AT A PARTY AFTER THE ENTIRE BOOK BEFORE THAT IS HABOUT HER TRYING TO DEAL WITH THAT EVENT. YOU DON’T FIND OUT THAT THE RAPE OCCURRED UNTIL THAT SCENE IN THE BOOK AND IT IS PRESENTED IN A WAY THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE SHOCKING AND HORRIFYING TO THE READER. I READ THAT BOOK IN SEVENTH GRADE AND IT IS STILL THE MOST VIVID MEMORY I HAVE OF ANY WORK OF FICTION DEALING WITH THE AFTERMATH OF SEXUAL ASSAULT. SO FUCK WHOEVER DECIDES WHAT BOOKS ARE BANNED FOR THINKING OF THE EVENT THAT RUINED A YOUNG GIRL’S LIFE AND HAUNTED HER SO DEEPLY FOR MONTHS AFTERWARD THAT SHE COULDN’T EVEN TELL ANYONE ABOUT IT TO BE “softcore pornography”. 

    And I have so much more I could say about some of these other banned books if it weren’t eleven o’clock at night so goodnight everyone and fuck this~!~

    THIS IS AMAZING I AM AMAZED AND ASTONISHED AND MOST OF ALL I AM SUPER FUCKING APPALLED THAT SOMEONE READ A SCENE OF, IIRC, A FOURTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL BEING COERCED INTO GETTING DRUNK AND THEN BEING RATHER VIOLENTLY RAPED IN THE WOODS BY A MAN FOUR YEARS OLDER THAN HER AND THAT SOMEONE IDENTIFIED THAT AS PORN

    PORN.

    I COULD EVEN UNDERSTAND IF PEOPLE WANTED TO BAN IT FOR SEXUAL THEMES/CONTENT, BUT TO EXPLICITLY LABEL IT ‘PORN’ IS TO SUGGEST THAT THAT SCENE WAS MEANT TO BE TITILLATING

    WHEN IN ACTUALITY IT WAS MEANT TO BE (AND WAS) SUPER FUCKING HORRIFYING

    I NEED TO KNOW WHO GOT THIS BOOK BANNED SO I CAN SIT THEM DOWN AND FIRMLY EXPLAIN THAT THEY ARE ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING IN THE SEXUALIZATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST (YOUNG) WOMEN

    I go to a women’s college. We have a walkway where bricks can be purchased by alumnae. Most just say names or class years/mascots. But this one. This one is special. It speaks to me.

    bro i love sports and women. i got to like 8th base with this hot babe “8th base whats that” she took me to the house she grew up in and showed me pictures of her dead relatives. We sat in the living room and she told me the stories of her life that lead to that moment. Like quicksand they, and that moment were gone and we left back into the cold world which we’d been spat into. It was raining

    a guy walked into the board room and said

    "hi sweetheart if you could fix me up a coffee real quick im meeting with the regional reports manager in like five minutes, thanks darling"

    and i just stared at him and coldly said

    "i am the regional reports manager"

    we are now twenty minutes into this board meeting and i dont think i’ve ever seen a man look so embarrassed and afraid in my whole life

    i’m just so fucking done with trash subtext or characters inferring vaguely that they’re gay (see: Gobber HTTYD2) or even “surprise! I was actually gay this whole time” (Mitch, paranorman) crap it’s boring and shitty and i’m not here to be played off as some kind of twist or in-joke for adult members of the audience
