“• Gender Queer: A Memoir – an explicit, pornographic book showing sex acts.
“• Flamer – a graphic book about young boys performing sexual acts at a summer camp.
“• This Book Is Gay – a book containing instructions on ‘the ins and outs of gay sex.’
“• Let’s Talk About It – a book that contains graphic depictions about how to masturbate for males and females.”
Progressives care for logic about as much as they do for morality. They aren’t partial to truth, either. For example, Pink claimed books such as “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Diary of Anne Frank” are being banned from Florida schools.

Evidently, she isn’t aware of Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking Standards for English Language Arts. However, DeSantis press secretary Jeremy Redfern is. In a social media post on Tuesday, he suggested Pink “confused Florida for California.” “To Kill a Mockingbird is on Florida’s BEST standards list,” he noted. “Anne Frank’s diary is on the same page.”
The following are some titles of books that have been banned from schools in Florida…. Lmk which book is pornography….

For the record, those classics aren’t what Pink said she would away during her shows. The PEN America news release said she would be distributing copies of “The Family Book” by Todd Parr, “The Hill We Climb” by Amanda Gorman, “Beloved” by Toni Morrison and a book from the “Girls Who Code” series. False claims about Florida’s “book ban” aren’t anything new. Last year, USA Today published an article titled “Fact check: Fake list of banned Florida books circulates widely online.” “In July,” the article said, “a new Florida law went into effect that allows parents to register concerns about books taught in schools and petition local districts to ban them.” Progressives don’t like parents being allowed to register concerns about what the schools are shoveling down their kids’ throats. They see parents as the enemy, the first and last line of defense against progressive brainwashing. “Nevertheless,” the article continued, “many prominent people on social media have been claiming that a slew of books were immediately banned in schools and libraries statewide by the law. They have circulated an image of 25 book titles listed on a piece of paper.” Wait for it … “The book list includes novels that have been taught in schools for generations, including ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ ‘Catcher in the Rye’ and ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.’ It also includes the Harry Potter series and the biblical Song of Solomon.” Progressives are like an old blind dog doing an old trick because it can’t see to learn any new ones. And yes, they’re still coming after your kids.
