LGBT books dominate 2016’s most-banned list

  • PaulBrownsey

    Why not “in USA” in headline?

    • ECarpenter

      That would be good. It would also be interesting to hear what books are being banned (if any) in UK public libraries, and in UK school libraries. I imagine some of the religious schools, in particular, don’t have copies of “Two Boys Kissing”.

    The Land of the Free! Funny how free speech is is limited to anti-gay propaganda, then suddenly it’s a constitutional right

    • dave

      The Bible is also on that list

      • 1Myles1

        That is one book that should never be banned.How will christians learn that religion is sick and evil if they can’t read the bible?

  • Guest

    they were banned to stop the LGBT’s from spreading their propaganda. These books are trying to brainwash people and turn them gay.

      Sexuality is innate and immutable.If you think you can change your sexuality,prove it.Go gay.Even in your ignorance you should be able to follow up your beliefs.

        tbh I wouldn’t call sexuality universally immutable. makes it harder for ppl who go through dozens of labels to feel comfortable in the queer community. And sometimes, ppl do end up going through a lot of labels before they find out what works best for them. :Bb

      I’d rather be around glbt people than hate filled bigoted “christians” any day.

    • Liam

      By your logic, if it is possible to change a person’s sexuality just with depiction the constant images of far more explicit heterosexuality in all forms of media would more than cancel it out.

    • CrissCross

      If people can change their sexual orientation on a whim, then it means that ANYBODY could “go gay”.
      Which would mean that EVERYBODY is bisexual (& part of lgBt) & could go either way.
      If Everyone is LGBT then why ban LGBT literature?

    • John Hoggett

      You are so right. There are not enough gay men in the world. My love life shows that is true. Anything to raise the chance of me finding a boyfriend needs to be done. I personally send these books to every school in my locality every year.

      I am being ironic by the way. I hope you can see that.

      Perhaps you can’t? Oh well, never mind.

    banning books, gee, sounds like something nazi gemany would do.

    Welcome to amerikkka, home of the hate-filled “christian” bigots, land of the white racists.
