A Conversation With My Husband
The news just showed a story about a school that is banning THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER b/c of the sexuality and suicide in it. My conversation with my hubs, Jason, about what the school was doing went as such:
Me: That is ridiculous! How much do you want to bet that the kids read ROMEO AND JULIET there in English class?
Jason: What does that have to do with it?
Me: In ROMEO AND JULIET the kids get married so they can have sex and then kill themselves right after because they can't be together. Why don't they ban that?
Jason: Because no one can understand what the heck is going on in that play. Shakespeare doesn't make any sense.
Me: Fair enough.
*Although I still think it's ludicrous that the school is banning books...especially this one. Ugh! Censorship sucks!
