Banned Books Week – Pt. 4: Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby.

bbw-logoAs I’m sure most of you know by now, it’s Banned Books Week and I’m┬árunning a series of blog posts discussing the banning of books to celebrate the event. In the first post, on Monday, I kicked off the series with a short post about the event as well as how and where books are being banned. The second post┬ádemonstrated why the banning of books is such a problematic practice with an excursus on an ugly chapter in world history and the third post continued the series with a look at the not-so-noble nature of the reasons behind the banning of books.

While the last post focused on the bans targeting diverse content, this time I want to discuss the reasons that have to do with people in their birthday suits and what they might do together.
[tip: if you’re offended by the big bad word s-e-x, you better not read this post. Of course you may also read it and then issue a formal request at the next library to ban my post on┬átheir computer networks.]

In the first post, on Monday, I kicked off the series with a short post about the event as well as how and where books are being banned. The second post┬ádemonstrated why the banning of books is such a problematic practice with an excursus on an ugly chapter in world history.

In┬áyesterday’s post I┬áconcluded that anyone who attempts to (or does) ban books, is trying to indoctrinate others with their own beliefs.┬áToday I want to continue the series by discussing what kind of beliefs those are.Read More »
