Some Parents Are Just Kuh-Razy.....

......Thankfully the rest of us still have our heads screwed on correctly.

One such couple in Tulsa, Oklahoma decided that a children's book featuring a character from the classic TV show Arthur was too inappropriate for children. Buster's Sugartime features the lovable character, named in the title, meeting with different families, including a same-sex couple. The couple from Tulsa argued that because Oklahoma's laws ban same-sex marriage, all books discussing the topic should be banned too.

The Board of Education, of course, denied the request from the couple. School superintendent, Cathy Burden, said, "If legality in Oklahoma was an issue we were to use in criteria, then we would have to get rid of a lot of books in our library referencing things like pirates and robbers and cattle rustlers and many other topics that are certainly in popular fiction not only for children but for adults."

No books should be banned. Period. Everyone should be able to read everything and make their own informed decisions on how they feel about it and react to it. Of course. Of course.
