The Young Turks

The Young Turks are not ok with a teacher reading Uncle Bobby’s Wedding in first grade. They think that maybe it would be ok to read the book in high school if they got authorization from the school board, first. They think the teacher should be suspended for reading my book to first grade students.

I do think they should have actually read my book before determining what punishment would be appropriate for reading it in school! They clearly hadn’t.

  1. I disagree with the male reporter regarding compromising with people who have differing views regarding gay marriage. Would they do the same in removing texts that depict heterosexual marriage if a parent was offended? I highly doubt it. The point is equality… not preferences, even of a majority.
