This list is part of the article and video about a Virginia mom who found that books graphically depicting pedophilia were in her child’s school as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion — so she read from them, verbatim, to the school board

Below is a list of books the  Young Adult Services division of the American Library Association approves - they determine which books are in schools.

Lawn Boy” is in schools, in part, because it has been heralded by the Young Adult Library Services division of the American Library Association (YALSA), which helps determine which books are carried in schools.

If the book was billed as boosting tolerance and fighting back against stereotyping, “Lawn Boy” seems like a bad choice: it depicts a Hispanic as a landscaper and gay sex as perverted.

An unusually large portion of the books recommended by YALSA are about homosexuality. Those include:

Flamer: “Aiden spends a last summer at scout camp before high school, which he dreads. He had a terrible middle school experience. He’s bi-racial and gay (though he can’t admit it yet) and doesn’t know where he fits in or how to be himself in a world that actively mocks both of those things.”

Surviving The City: “Dez finally reveals her identity as a Two-Spirit person. The four students convince Geraldine that the old protocols are exclusionary and antithetical to Mino Bimaadiziwin or ‘the good life,’ and Riel’s Auntie Alex is invited to share about Two-Spirit teachings. Afterward, everyone, no matter their gender or sexuality, is welcomed back into the circle.”

I’m A Wild Seed: “De La Cruz talks about how she discovers her sexuality and what it means to be a woman of color. She also reflects on the racial and sexual oppression that she and others face in American society.”

Heartstopper: “Shy, openly gay Charlie is worried that rugby player Nick will end up being a bully, but the two strike up a friendship. As they grow closer, Charlie struggles with what he assumes is an unrequited crush, and Nick starts to question if his feelings for Charlie are romantic.”

Much of the youth librarians group’s selections focus on instilling a sense of racial oppression rather than a mastery of reading.

Two of the four winners of YALSA’s Morris Award are:

Black Girl Unlimited: The Remarkable Story of a Teenage Wizard: “Using magical realism, Brown explores the intersection of racism, poverty, sexual assault, and intergenerational trauma, as well as the strength and power that women wield as they navigate these challenges.”

The Black Kids: “Pulling away from her white friends, she gravitates towards the group of black students and identifies how racial bias, microaggressions, and her own complicity shape her relationships at home and school.”

Going all the way back to 08 when I was on soda head - and polled on this - I realized the left was trying to normalize it... and how important it was to them was clear to me when seriously about two hundred lib accounts found little old me and my poll to repeat the same words in comments "YOU ARE A...
