The written passages that parent Stacy Langton read to the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) board meeting were so sexually graphic that board members thundered about children being present, and finally Langton’s microphone was cut off.

What was she reading from? Two books — Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe and Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison — that were both available to kids at Fairfax County, Va. high school libraries.

Now the FCPS has released a statement saying that board members would review the content of the novels, according to the Daily Wire, which initially covered Langton’s brave stand:

“Circulation of Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison and Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe will be suspended with immediate effect. FCPS is in the process of convening two committees made up of staff, students and parents led by our Library Services Coordinator to assess the suitability of both texts for inclusion in our school libraries. The recommendation of the committees will be put forward to the Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services who will make a final decision as to whether FCPS continues to stock these books.”

A passage in Lawn Boy has a young character describing an oral-sex encounter with a pedophile to a friend and saying it “wasn’t terrible.”

Why would children be allowed to read a book such as this, other than to groom them for the sexual attentions of older people?

“Both of these books include pedophilia, sex between men and boys,” Langton said last Thursday at the school board meeting while showing the books to the board. “The illustrations include fellatio, sex toys, masturbation, and violent nudity.”

So two books have been red-flagged, but how many more books like this remain in the Fairfax County schools’ libraries? How many remain in school libraries nationwide?
