    Banned Books

    Advertisements
    I was browsing Pinterest and found this:

    Banned Children's Books We Love

    A list of banned children's books, and the reasons. How do you feel about the fact that the government can still ban books from libraries and schools, and the reasons listed for their banning? I put this in debates just in case, and I'm very curious to see how other people feel.

    I can see banning SOME books from younger libraries...like...idk 50 Shades of Grey doesn't need to be in an elementary school Other than that I'm very much against the book banning.

    I remember reading Sylvester and the Magic Pebble when I was in school.

    I do not agree with banning books. I don't like that these children's books are banned.

    My kids have all loved And Tango Makes Three. It's a beautiful book.

    I think banning any book is absolutely ridiculous.

    I disagree with banning books. And those books sound lovely. I think I will have to make a point to buy them for my potential future maybe children.

    I'm against banning books, and censorship in general.

    I don't agree with banning any books. That said, I DO believe in restricting them based on age. I don't think that 8 year olds should be able to read about "throbbing d***"s and "squirting c***"s. JMO. I'll certainly be restricting my children's access to certain books until they're old enough for the content.

    ETA: Wanted to add that if the child has consent from the parents, they should be allowed to read the restricted books.

    I'm against banning books for anyone. I much prefer parent reading and discussing books with their children to banning them so they aren't exposed to things.

    This. Restricting is definitely a better word for what I was trying to say
