“As a parent of kids attending Fairfax County schools, it doesn’t matter if it’s ‘Lawn Boy’, gay sex, straight sex, it shouldn’t be in schools,” Justin said, father of two, to Fox News. “We don’t need to pay taxes for sex-related books.”

“The school board is letting our kids down,” Maria Sherwell, mother of two at FCPS Schools, told Fox News.

“Attendance is down, grades are down, children are subjected to sexual inquiries which are completely irrelevant,” she said, referring to an official FCPS survey asking students about their sex life. She lamented “that porn is allowed in school, even for college students”.

“Child pornography is so dangerous to a child’s mind,” Perry said. “Their frontal lobes are not yet developed, so what they see stays in their minds.”

At the school board meeting, some students and parents spoke out in favor of the books, arguing that they provide important representation for LGBTQ students. Other parents said that didn’t justify “porn” in schools.

When Langton spoke, she referred to two additional books, “All Boys Aren’t Blue” by George M. Johnson and “Decelerate Blue” by Adam Rapp. She said the first book includes a description of a 13-year-old boy being sodomized by his 18-year-old cousin and the other book includes obscene images of sex acts.

Langton argued that such books “violate FCC obscenity rules” so the media cannot offer them, but FCPS allows them in libraries.

“How come these documents, which cannot be shown in the United States, magically become legal when you walk into a school library?” ” she asked.

Chris Henzel, a father of three, said the committees reviewing Lawn Boy and Gender Queer were made up of “teachers and administrators who work for the school board and who could be relied on to give the answers they wanted.” .
