Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Yes, I agree that 5-year-olds shouldn't read 'Sex' by Madonna, but where would they get it!? I seriously doubt obscene or explicit books would be shelved in elementary school libraries!.
I would promote banning them there, but that would be like banning whaling in Lake Superior!. Just doesn't add up!.
I think it is perfectly fine for a parent to decide that his/her child should not read a book, within reason!. But for that parent to make that decision for other people's children is wrong!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
To a certain degree yes!.
I would ban them according to ages!.
I would not want a 10 year old reading a sexually explicit book written for adults (you'd be surprised what books they have at a public library in the junior section)!.
I believe it has nothing to do with censorship!. We just need to analyze what books are appropriate for each age group!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
I might want to ban specific books from being in grade school libraries (like, I wouldn't want 3rd graders to have access to books with sex or lots of violence) but once you get to a certain age, you shouldn't be keeping too much away from them!. Bad words and sex from novels are nothing compared to a sense of oppression and lack of freedoms that comes from banning books!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
Definitely not!. Governments are fond of banning books in order to control the masses!. Something that Palin would approve of!. Maybe if we ban all books with sex, then no underaged children will get preggo!.!.!.!.waaiiiitt!!! That doesn't work now, does it!?Www@QuestionHome@Com
I suppose that I would ban anything by Paul Reiser, that's it, that's the joke, Paul Reiser, the least funny man on the planet!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
I don't have to agree with what you are writing, but I still want you to have the right to write it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
