'Book Burning' or 'Protecting Children'
The harm caused by sexualization of our youth will have irreparable damage
Let me start by saying I am against banning books. What you seek out at the proper place and time is your business. Keeping inappropriate books out of reach of children is our business!
Comparing parents trying to protect the well being of children to Marxist style book banning is pure projection. There is a place for everybook. Sometimes that place happens to be behind a curtain where you need to show an 18+ ID to enter.
These are just two books at the top of the list of which parents want removed from school libraries across the country.
I urge you to check your children’s school library for these harmful, sexualy explicit books. Let the grooming stop with you! 👀
Book for 8-12-year-olds says kids should WATCH their parents have sex — and then it gets even WORSE2 🙈
Early sexualization (also called premature sexualization or hypersexualization), happens when adult sexuality is forced on children, preteens, and teens. It’s when children are influenced or pressured to behave in the context of adult sexuality — but without having the maturity of an adult to understand consequences.
A 2007 study by the American Psychological Association highlights the effects of sexualization on girls (effects that have only become more obvious in years since the study):
Research evidence shows that the sexualization of girls negatively affects girls and young women across a variety of health domains:
Cognitive and Emotional Consequences: Sexualization and objectification undermine a person’s confidence in and comfort with her own body, leading to emotional and self-image problems such as shame and anxiety.
Mental and Physical Health: Research links sexualization with three of the most common mental health problems diagnosed in girls and women — eating disorders, low self-esteem, and depression or depressed mood.
Sexual Development: Research suggests that the sexualization of girls has negative consequences on girls’ ability to develop a healthy sexual self-image.3
