    Actually I have something I am genuinely unhappy about. I found out today that most schools have banned the reading of To Kill a Mockingbird from the school curriculums. That pisses me off so bad. I read that book in school when I was about 15 years old and to this day it is one of the best books I have ever read. I remember even back then, when I was a dumb shithead, how much I learned reading that book.

    Yeah, I read that in 9th grade; it was great. Why the hell would they even ban that?

    Apparently it is considered to be immoral because of the rape topics, racial slurs, profanity, and "adult themes" that are in the book.

    I come from a very conservative family (crazy right?) and even they don't mind that I read that book. Ugh.

    :(
    Canadian schools don't tend to do that as often as American schools do. It is disappointing that it happens at all though.

    Oh, that's ridiculous. It's literature. Authors are trying to get a message out there, they aren't going to dumb it down because schools are too goddamn sensitive. That stuff's gonna be out there no matter what they do, might as well introduce it in an intellectual context.

    Psshhh, Americans... that's like, THE book of high school english. Not that I particularily liked it, but it's iconic. They can't ban that.

    Just finished visiting my 4 year old nephew in the hospital. He shouldn't have to go through this shit :(

    And then I came home and had someone scream at me for an hour about something I didn't do, and then start sobbing on me for the next hour about totally stupid things. Ugh.

    Someone at my high school had ripped out all of the pages containing that stuff in every copy.

    I've made a decision that's going to make me the villain to a lot of people who would rather I fit into their little box of who I should be. Thing is that I do love them but they have their own lives to live and it would be nice to hope that they would want me to be happy for myself rather than worry about how it will affect THEM.

    What?!?!
    Fuck, my school had it in the curriculumn in year eleven (middle year high school I think that is in the US...). Even the kids that hated reading or were ambivalent about books got into that one.
    It's a brilliant novel, and it shouldn't be banned at all.

    Dude, that was banned up north when I was living there still...5 years ago now I guess. Luckily, I was home schooled and got to read all the banned books I wanted. Fahrenheit 451 (Irony there), TKaM, Catcher In The Rye (I still don't know what the fuss was about), Huck Finn, The Jungle, Of Mice and Men...y'know, the good stuff.
