The current project "Rainbow Boxes" is planning to send a box of gay, lesbian, transgender etc, etc young adult books to all 50 states in America and they don't want these books in a marked "LBGT" area...no they want them mixed in with other young adult books so that unknowing kids will pick them and read them without knowing what they might be in store for.
Some of the books in the box include:
-Description: Sahar and her best friend Nasrin have fallen in love, but in Iran they can’t be together openly. When Nasrin’s parents arrange a marriage for her, Sahar comes up with a plan to become a man, since sex reassignment is legal in Iran. This is a fascinating look at how far we will go for the people we love.If You Could Be Mine" - By Sara Farizan [Identities: Lesbian, supporting gay and transgender characters]
"None of the Above" - By IW Gregorio [Identities: Intersex]
-Description: On the eve of taking things to the next level with her boyfriend, homecoming queen and track star Kristin finds out that she is intersex, throwing her life into turmoil and her identity into question. This novel is as thorough and informative as it is sensitive and engaging.
They understand there will be challenges to reaching their goals.
The goal I am seeing here is to get publishers to pump out more filth than they already are. I'm a parent who reads YA because I have young adult readers in my home and I want to know what they are reading and what the school is sending home as "suggested reading lists"- its trash. It's often graphic and loaded with sexual encounters- both hetero and homosexual. It's corrupting our children and most parents are completely clueless as to what these books actually contain.
The goal here...sneak the books into areas where unsuspecting YA readers who aren't looking for LBGT books will get one anyway.
I am sure these two gay activist authors will soon be barraged with money and book donations from the corrupt ilk of our society looking to corrupt more of our children. It's what they do folks.
If you're a parent, please pay attention to what your children are reading- don't assume a school reading list is actually good for your child- usually it's not.
Also, pay attention to what books are on the children's and YA shelves at your local libraries. Your child may be reading content you aren't aware of. And don't forget Catholic school libraries...don't think these books can't one day end up there too.
