The people that were calling themselves "traditional" then are now the backwards racists and misogynists of today. The result will be the same for people who refuse to acknowledge that homosexuals are people and have the same right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that you do.
    Good Lord, stop equating the horrific plights and sufferings of African slaves with guys who like to screw other guys in matrimony.

    It's demeaning to the real inequities and pains of history.

    There was a long drawn out period between when blacks were slaves and when they were fully accepted citizens and there were a lot of people saying "Quit complaining. At least you aren't slaves anymore." back then too. The relative level of injustice in a civil rights issue only affects the urgency of its rectification, not its existence.

    The point is that the exact same phrases and methods that were used against african americans and women are being used to suppress the discussion of homosexual civil rights issues.

    For conservatives, some of you guys sure don't like free speech and the free expression of ideas. Aren't you guys supposed to be freedom loving?

    This was a girl's memoir about the suicide of her father. Calling it pornographic is insulting.

    Look at my son Johnny! He's so smart. He just graduated from college. Um, no, he can't name the Vice President of the United States. No, he has no idea where Russia is. No, he can't add numbers that have more than 4 digits. No, he has no idea what our Constitution says or who wrote it. But he saw cartoons depicting women having sex with each other in college!

    From YOUR link in the OP:

    The school purchased copies of the graphic novel — which includes cartoons that show two women having sex

    Yes, every book I ever read about suicide contained cartoons showing two women having sex.

    As the people who own this book have already attested, that statement is very misleading. Besides, a sexual them doesn't make it pornographic. Shakespeare's plays contain sex. James Joyce's novels have sex. Classical sculpture and Renaissance art contain nudity. Portrait photography has nudity. Are those pornographic? Grow up, man. Two pictures in a graphic novel that have a boob in them don't make it porn. Calling it that is just being inflammatory and dismissive of the value of a multiple award winning piece of work that has prompted a play and movie.

    Jeez, I hope you never have to go to a gynecologist's office. There's LOTS of porn on those walls with your definition.

    I'm not a man.

    I decide what's pornographic and I decide what's appropriate reading material for my children. You decide for your children. Fair?

    "The memoir frankly examines her sexual development, including transcripts from her childhood diary, anecdotes about masturbation, and tales of her first sexual experiences with her girlfriend, Joan".

    Yes, just about suicide, right?

    I'll dig up this thread the next time someone whines on here about graduating from college and not being able to get a job. Nobody goes to college for the "experience". Once upon a time, when this country was still great, people went to college to learn skills to get good jobs. Cartoons drawn by a woman whose career is being the author of a comic strip called "Dykes to Watch Out For".

    Please don't compare a comic strip author to Shakespeare or Joyce. Talk about insulting.

Given that - why would ANYONE think this is what kids should be receiving from college in lieu of meaningful things, like say, our Constitution, or a history book, or an economics book. Then I read that there are such college courses as "50 Shades of Grey" and a college course about Pornography and a college course about a woman who finds out her father is gay.

    I'm sure the interview for kids who take those kinds of courses would be wonderful. "Well, you got a C- in American History, and a D in American Lit, but I see you aced Pornography. You're exactly the kind of person we want. Welcome to Boeing!".

    If this is the type of **** that kids are focusing on in college, it's no wonder that they can't find jobs, and no wonder that most of them think Spiro Agnew is a mousaka. And I call BS on the administrations who think graphic sex cartoons are more important than knowing what happened on Lexington Green.
    First of all I sincerely doubt that the class handing out sexual guides or whatever the hell it is is part of anyone's major. It's almost certainly just some elective liberal arts course. And if it is part of their major then the nudie picture book is the very least of their problems.

    Second of all, you're certainly entitled to your opinion, but in the end your control over what he's exposed to from here on out is severely reduced, your money or not.
