" A Texas school district announced this week that it would remove or suspend nine books from its secondary school book club readings lists. This comes as part of a months-long process in which the Leander Independent School District, near Austin, has removed or threatened to remove a number of books including titles from Jacqueline Woodson, Margaret Atwood, and Carmen Maria Machado, among others. PEN America led a campaign against those removals and today again reiterates its call for the district to immediately reinstate all the books stricken from its book club reading lists (a full list of the removed books is below)."

I feel like my journal might as well be a banned book.

Is it only 'cancel culture' when the 'other side' is doing it?

TIL that Miles Hyman is Shirley Jackson's Grandson. The banned book is a graphic adaptation of her book.

It was tongue in cheek, you f*cking idiot. But I forgot got a second, you can’t understand things with context.

It did surprise me that a cancel culture denier like you would make such a claim, but I thought your blind hatred for conservatives might have influenced your statement...

I don’t have a blind hatred for conservatives. It’s fir idiot and/or hypocrite Trumpers like you. CINO

Right- - calling names and hanging labels with no basis in reality isn't 'blind hatred'.

You may have noticed that Trump isn't even in office anymore- - why are you so obsessed with him?

How does Trump feel about Texans banning books?

At least that might get the thread back on topic...

Maybe go over to the vaccine mandate lawsuit thread and we can discuss Trump's position on vaccine mandates as well.
