The Superintendent of North Kingstown High School in Rhode Island seems to believe that displays of gay sex in a children’s book are akin to DaVinci or Michaelangelo, or at least that’s what he told one concerned mother who discovered a book filled with sexually explicit drawings displayed in the school where it could be seen prominently.

As first reported by The Federalist, one mother reported the school to the police for advertising a gay pornography book meant for children and young adults titled “Gender Queer: A Memoir.” As Erika Sanzi pointed out on her Substack blog, the book contains images of graphic scenes of gay sex and oral sex as well as a girl encouraged to “taste” herself by her own siblings. While we will not post the images here, you can click on the link to the substack blog to see them yourself.

Clicking on that link will also show you how the school was displaying the book. It was put up in a display along with other books in a window so that anyone walking by could see it.

Upon learning about this, one mother contacted the school Superintendent Phil Auger. Auger’s response, according to a screenshot of the email taken by Sanzi, was to defend the book, claiming it wasn’t so much pornography as it was art like the statue of David or no different from an anatomy textbook:

I have read both works, and I feel it is important to see these images and quotations in context of the full text. Gender Queer is available in our library, is intended for a teenage and young adult audience, and in my opinion would be considered a valuable resource for someone who is working through issues of sexual identity and/or identifying as transgender. I do not consider the book to be pornographic. With pornography there is an intent stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings. It is the reason images of in a Playboy magazine would be considered pornographic, but a statue from Michaelangelo, sexual images in an anatomy textbook, or sexual references in health class discussion or in many works of literature would not.

Looking at the pictures displayed in the book, it’s clear that it is, in fact, pornographic. The scenes depict drawings that would be seen, not in a health class, but in a porno. The images are the definition of sexually explicit.

This isn’t the only book being tossed around schools that attempt to not only normalize gay sex but pedophilia as well. Alongside Gender Queer is a book called “Lawn Boy.” This book describes a man talking approvingly to his friend about having oral sex with a grown man when he was only in fourth grade. Again, these are books meant for kids.

There’s clearly an effort to introduce your children to eroticism and kinks from those running the public school system, and they’ve gotten bold enough to not only display these books where they can be seen prominently but also defend them as “art” or “healthy” when parents rightfully complain about them. This overt move to normalize pedophilia is coming to the surface, and the response from parents must be twice as forceful.
