Earning Sexually Explicit Content


The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board has removed David Guterson's novel Snow Falling on Cedars from school library shelves and English class reading lists.  Apparently there were complaints about the book's sexually explicit content.

In this world of sex and gore filled video games, accessible Internet porn and instant digital/satellite/on-demand XXX movies, the idea that some kids may actually read a prize-winning novel for a dose of smut is refreshing.

I say, if the kids stumble upon a little sexually explicit content while reading Snow Falling on Cedars, they've earned it.
