The library book issue shows how the left isn’t willing to give an inch.
For high school senior Gabrielle Izu, Texas’ public school book bans feel personal.
The books Texas is targeting — mainly novels that focus on discussions of race, sexual orientation and gender identity — tell the tale of Izu’s past and future. The 17-year-old high school student is Asian American, Black and Hispanic and bisexual, and she hates to see her identities or her peers’ censored.
“Bisexual” is another way of saying “attention seeker with daddy issues.”
“I ignored [my sexuality] for a really long time. And I think that as a young girl, if a book showed me that this is a life that could be lived, I could have had a lot more peace and coming to terms with bisexuality,” said Izu, who attends James E. Taylor High School in the Katy Independent School District near Houston.
You just have to come to terms with the fact that public schools are going to teach your kids about all the sexual possibilities life has to offer. It’s called social emotional learning, bigot. If you don’t like it then you can hecking home school.
Katy ISD removed, temporarily, Jerry Craft’s “New Kid,” which explores how more subtle or indirect discrimination impacts Black students in a mostly white school.
How many mostly white schools are there in Texas? There can’t be very many.
“They’re OK with heterosexual scenes, heterosexual ideas. But the second something turns slightly, slightly queer, slightly homosexual, it discomforts them. It’s the same thing with [people of color] viewpoints,” Sadeghi said. “Why do we have to remove books about Black people and Asian Americans simply for the sake of white people’s comfort?”
I still don’t understand what the plan is from Texas Republicans. The media is driving the entire narrative and all I hear from Republicans is how they have “lists” of books to ban.
It’s totally nonsensical and cartoonish.
The issue is not about race or homos or whatever, the issue is about paraphilia and critical theory.
It’s pretty straightforward when you categorize the two issues in this way.
Paraphilia describes all these sexual fantasies that are in no way related to procreation.
Critical theory is a formula for criticizing anything and everything in your society until it collapses.
There is no coherent vision for what comes after society is collapsed, but one thing is certain — white people are not a part of the plan.
