    That specific article has been blacklisted from being shared on Facebook, likely because the imagery has been deemed inappropriate for their readers (though, apparently, it is appropriate for 4th graders).

      it is really sad to see all the posts on that this book is pornography. My son used this book thru our church in 4th grade and it teaches alot about respecting your body and body image. How many of you have looked at this book on the book shelves before complaining that it is pornography? Besides it is just on a recommended book list. What kids are hearing in school now from their friends is way different than what my son heard at that age. Make sure and talk to your kids about sex. I had a friend who her parents said you do not have sex before marriage and could not discuss boys or sex with her mom. at age 17 her boyfriend told her you cannot get pregnant the first time. Of course she believed him because talking about sex was forbidden at her house. She got pregnant the first time. Married at 18 divorced by 19. Something to think about.

        Such bull crap. How in the world did we get to the Age of Reason and the Enlightenment and USA without group “Sex Ed” in schools. It is a wonder that the Natural Family even existed prior to the massive sexualization of our children in the 70s.

        Sex ed is pure evil to destroy that Awe and Mystery necessary for sexually moral adulthood. Sex Ed is the cultural Marxist concept to collapse the two pillars of culture: The Natural Family and Christianity and it is certainly WORKING,

        Abortions, divorce, STDs, Out of wedlock births skyrocketed with Sex Ed in 1970.

        While I agree with you that parents “need” to be the ones to talk to their children when it comes to sex “when they deem it appropriate” I disagree with your assessment that this book is not pornography. If that, indeed, is your position Sue. Just by looking at the photos of the pages in the article it can clearly be stated the textbook crosses the line from sex education into pornography. As far as children talking to their children about sex is concerned, unfortunately this can be a double-edged sword. So many parents these days either lack the ability to talk to their children about such subjects or they are too scared. Also there has to be a trust between parents and children that allows for and encourages children to seek answers from their parents but, sadly, too many parents are unqualified to discuss the subject of sexual awareness and curiosity themselves. Too many of them are still children themselves…..some biologically and other psychologically. But as far as your question “how many of you have looked at this book on the book shelves before complaining that it is pornography?” goes….after seeing what is displayed by this article, I don’t need to look at this book any further. Finally, the first article I saw about this matter said the a teacher of 30 years (I believe) brought it to the attention of the author and stated that this book was “part of the school curriculum” in Tennessee under the guise of Common Core.

        • Tewana Secumbah

          Common core is the “common whore” that will destroy the youth of this and future generations.

          • vanguard7

            good analogy.

      • Sam

        I can see the little naked cartoons where the character has his hand on his privates. One is masturbating, one is putting on a condom. This is cartoon porn and doesn’t belong in the hands of 9 years old children. Why do we have to inform our children at such a young age? They need to learn about puberty first, and I will never approve of teaching children that all forms of sex is perfectly normal. This is a lie.

    • sue

      If you think about it some 4th graders are curious about sex and what it is. They hear stuff from their friends at school and on TV about it and then they become curious. Once kids know what it really is it is not such a big deal to them anymore. My son started asking questions at 8. I figured rather hear it from me than a friend who would give him wrong information.

      • Susan

        Sexualization of children is a cultural Marxist invention. Google Lukacs and Adorno. Parents need to answer any ‘questions” in an age-appropriate way. You don’t tell an eight year old about “anal sex” and other perverted uses of the body. It warps how they see their body and Reality. They should NEVER take “Pride” in such dysfunctional learned behaviors like the harems boys of Afghanistan. It is child abuse to put such insidious ideas into their heads when they are in Latency.

        “Sex Ed” is to destroy normal sexual identity formation of children which requires innocence (known since Christianity/ Rousseau/ Freud). To “warp” their normal identity formation (which ALL so-called “sex ed”, outside of parents, does) reduces sex to sex organs without the understanding of the passions (which immature children are incapable of, so it gives WARPED view of sex organs/parents/people).

        Introducing “differences” to an immature age will result in teasing and humiliation in an age (Latency) which naturally prefers “the same” and reviles differences (herd instinct). Appreciation of the “Other” only comes with maturity/puberty when there can be some understanding of the sex act passions. Even then—to have strangers in group situations “teach” sex—is absurd.

        Beyond Biology class—which was taught in high school only, and never beyond the biology of sex/body, which didn’t strip sex of its intimacy/privacy and dignity.

        With the advent of “sex ed” in schools under the guise of “Health” ed, came the destruction of morality, modesty, privacy, etc…..in sex….the destruction of shame and modesty, which is necessary for a “Civil” Society who respects males and females.

        Now sex is just objectified, as are women—and men now like the vulgar toxic culture of the Weimar Republic. People just reduced to sex organs and meaningless sodomy. There is absolutely no respect for the intimacy, dignity, and meaning of the sex act in culture/movies/media. It is reduced to “entertainment/pleasure/hedonism” so now we have massive abortions, unwed ‘mothers” and men that will never commit to women and be fathers to the children they drop, because women have no respect for their bodies and let anyone use them like toilet paper/Fluke.

        With Sex Ed in elementary/middle school ages, you reduce sex acts to mere animal acts that are meaningless and devoid of the mystery, privacy, and awe, which is what gives dignity to the act in man. Sex is NOT a “group” thing ever if virtue is to exist in culture.


    • Dave

      I would like to know why anybody, especially some of the ones that claim to be Christians, would think that such imagery is even necessary to teach kids about sex. How can the pictures of kids engaging in masturbation even be considered appropriate? Where are the courses that address the issues of picking a mate? It seems to me that, both our secular and ecclesiastical institutions miss the boat on the more important issue of finding a partner for life.

      • Tewana Secumbah

        Don’t forget, there are a lot of people who claim to be Christians so they can undermine true Christianity. Remember the Christian Obama?

  • Ben Name

    well, at least kids can come to this site to see the pornography.

    • pearl87

      Yes, and parents can see what little Billy is learning in govt schools.

    • sue

      Have you looked at the whole book in a book store or just online of the cartoon images of the naked people. If you look at the written part before and after you would know it is about body image.

      • garysvent

        “Body Image”?

        Gees, what did people do about “body image” in the previous 8,000 years of recorded history before birdbrain bureaucrats in our not-so-esteemed government decided to get involved?

        What the heck did kids do before?

        If they teach ‘sex’ in the schools the way they ‘teach’ math and science, the human race will soon die out. “Body Image” sounds like another Leftist sneak attack on normalcy.

      • Ben Name

        then what’s the problem with kids learning about body image? I’m sure they have already been attacked with body image propaganda from Disney by grade 4.

  • 19gundog43

    Doug it doesn’t surprise me a bit that a government school would think it’s
    cool to put out such a disgusting book for the young students . It’s a
    GOVERNMENT SCHOOL. Our Socialistic, Marxist government is doing everything to
    bring down our country and they are doing it through our precious children. When
    you read the Communist Manifesto you see one of the goals is to destroy the
    morals of the nation. The best way is getting to the future generation. What is
    surprising is the comments of some “parents”. Quite disgusting.
    Christian/Patriot parents need to find any way possible to get their children
    out of these indoctrination cesspools. We need a future generation that has not
    been indoctrinated by these “schools”. Can’t wait for the trolls to have a field
    with these comments.

    • Dave

      Any parent that gives a damn about their children, should never enroll in them “public” school.

      • sue

        They are not using the book in the school it is just a reading suggestion. Only a suggestion. Some kids in 4th grade start to get curious about sex and their body changing. My son was curious at 8 years old . I told him the things he was curious about. In 4th grade he used this book in a sex education class at church. It was great for him. Every child is different when they become curious about sex. So like the list said only recommended not required reading.

        • Dave

          I didn’t comment on the book. That being said, I wouldn’t trust that the aforementioned book, in the hands of what they now pass off on us as teachers, would or could, be used in an appropriate manner. Also, I haven’t read the book, and don’t care to. If what I saw of it in the other article on ClashDaily is accurate, it is very telling of the spiritual condition of your church since they are using it for their sex education class.

  • pearl87

    No one seems to get it. Facebook isn’t blocking those images because it’s not appropriate for readers, they just don’t want other parents to get the info. Shees, people, wake up!

    • Bajaron

      Exactly! This is simply more of the same. Give one reason for the action taken while the goal is to implement yet another facet of a completely different agenda.

      Obama Care has nothing to do with providing health care
      The ‘Stimulus’ was not about helping the economy
      ‘Amnesty’ is NOT about ‘Doing the right thing’ for Illegal aliens
      Gun control, NSA spying and drones overhead were never intended to make us safer
      Putting government ‘Monitors’ in news rooms is not meant to make news more ‘Fair and Balanced’
      And Common Core is neither common nor designed to educate. The sole purpose is to use your tax money to indoctrinate your children with the far left’s Core values

      • pj4me

        You got that right, Bajaron! It’s about CONTROL of the people. The Obama regime’s intention is to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” and the only way to accomplish that is take away our freedoms in order to CONTROL.

      • garysvent

        “The sole purpose is to use your tax money to indoctrinate your children with the far left’s Core values”

        Don’t forget it’s also to enrich the so-called leaders of the teachers’ unions, and their administrative buddies. The sweetness for them, to use your money, stolen by government, against you and your values; to force you to finance your own downfall and that of your children. This is nothing but evil, government entitlement mentality on display.

  • Steven Newman

    “It is not the evil itself which is horrifying about our times – it is the way we not only tolerate evil, but have made a cult of positively worshipping weakness, depravity,
    rottenness and evil itself.” – George Lincoln Rockwell

  • vanguard7

    I don’t believe that Facebook blocked these posts because they were offensive to their subscribers but rather because Facebook was being used as a vehicle to enlighten and educate parents and the public in general of just how bad our public education system has become. There is an agenda by the Progressives to destroy ALL morality in the world (not just the U.S.) for the purpose of eventually destroying this nation and what it has stood for since we won our independence and became a beacon for the rest of the world to look up to. Their ultimate goal is to make the entire country dependent upon the government and anyone or anything that threatens that goal is eliminated or severely restricted. If people use a particular medium to expose a vile and despicable practice, then that medium is shut down or those in control of the medium restrict what is allowed. In this case, Facebook’s management has made the choice to prevent the spread of this extremely alarming expose’ on our public education system.

    • LarryFrom10EC

      Are you serious? Zuckerberg blocked this because it made his Bu##buddy Obama and his socialist common core agenda look bad.

      • vanguard7

        try rereading my post. I believe that is exactly what I said but I relied on others to be able to discern that fact on their own. pearl87 and Bajaron are two on here that understand the real reason Facebook blocked the attempts and I agreed with them. I just didn’t take time to read any comments before I started typing.

      • Tewana Secumbah

        Zuck is a big-time liberal and Obama supporter. This type of material is “liberal” indoctrination for the sexual exploitation of children. They all have the same father, Lucifer. You think Zuck isn’t going to intervene in an opposing effort when he has the means to do so?

  • Ian

    Explicit content on using condoms directed at pre-teens is reason enough for charges to be laid against all the people responsible for this material.

  • wiggumc1

    The book is not being used as a textbook in Tennessee schools.

    See here:

    • Dave

      Who said that it was? Giles only stated “…….that it is on a fourth grade approved reading list in Tennessee”.

      • wiggumc1

        No, but he posted a link to the original story which states:

        “Parents are not aware that this book is in 4th grade classrooms.”

        By posting the link and not correcting the original story, Doug continues to imply that this book is being used in 4th grade classes in TN when it is not. It is not even available in libraries.

        • Dave

          Which original story are you referring to, The ClashDaily post from 2-21-14, or Victoria Jackson’s article?

          • wiggumc1

            His original post. He linked to it in the first sentence of this article.

          • Dave

            I see your point. Then again all any of us have to go on is the word of others on this issue. It seems to me that the article you provided the link to is also making false implications by stating that Victoria Jackson claimed that it was being used in classrooms in Tennessee. She only stated that it is on an approved reading list for fourth graders.http://victoriajackson.com/10406/list-lies-current-tn-school-textbooks#hobHZ7QaA3C0W443.99

          • wiggumc1

            I think even that was edited. The link I posted above claims as much and I did read it and recall that it mentioned the candidate who initially claimed it was being used and her attempts to have it and Common Core removed from the schools.

          • Dave

            I’m not sure that it was edited. Here is Victoria’s response to the article. http://victoriajackson.com/10602/error-sex-lies-tn-textbooks-article

        • felix1999

          Do YOU speak for the entire state of TN?

          Parents are NOT aware of this book.

          Yes, it IS being used in TN classrooms!

          It doesn’t have to be available in YOUR library. It is available in OTHER libraries. Please, get your head out of the sand.

          • wiggumc1

            Do YOU speak for the entire state of TN?

            What proof do you have that it is being used?

            Do you have children in the Williamson county school system who have been issued this book?

          • Alex M

            The Director of Schools in Tennessee has said “This book is not a part of the school district’s curriculum and is not in any of our school libraries. Students have no access to this book through Williamson County Schools.” [The Tennessean, Feb 21, 2014]

            Who to believe, the Director of Schools who has responsibility, or a woman who didn’t know what she was talking about and got it so wrong she’d to edit the allegation out of her website and post an apology for misinforming her readers?

            Not a tough choice.

    • johnrhett

      I guess it comes down to whether you want to take the word of one woman speaking for the school district. Who has verified that information? Also, that’s just one school district; what about all of the others? What about all of the other states?

      • Alex M

        That might be the same woman who subsequently removed the allegation against the school from her web pages and posted a damage-limitation apology for misleading her readers. Apparently, verifying the information is exactly what she didn’t do before launching into print with a false story.

        • Dave

          Would you kindly post a link to the apology, that you are referring to?

  • MichaelCrackMonkey

    Books like these are written and promoted by pedophiles who insert themselves into the grade school system for the express purpose of recruiting children. There is no other reasonable explanation for this kind of behavior that occurs on a regular basis.

    • Sam

      You are absolutely correct. Kevin Jennings is a school safety “tzar” appointed by obama. He wrote a book called “Queering of the schools”. The forward was written by his good friend, Harry Hay, founder of NAMBLA, the North American Man Boy Love Association. Shortly after Jennings was appointed, the schools started reading books like “Sally has two mommies” to kindergartners. The latest book, “It’s all normal” is in the Tennessee schools and is what I call “cartoon porn” and is being shown to 9 year olds. The perverts in charge are sexualizing our children and grooming them for indoctrination into the gay world. Those who fight this movement will be attacked and made to look like tin foil hats. This is how the left works against the truth. We must get a thick skin and fight for what is right and good.

    • felix1999

      Hey, it worked with homosexuality … Now I hear they (the LEFT) is doing the same thing for pedophiles. Remember how there was a “gene” for being a homosexual (LOL!!!!) and later DEBUNKED? Now they are claiming there is a “gene” for being a pedophile and they are BORN THAT WAY! Sound familiar?

      • garysvent

        Excuses like “… but I was born this way..” or “… I’m not fulfilled unless …” should be completely ignored. Our society, our ladies, and especially our children would be much safer if these perverts and deviants were at room temperature or back in the closet, where they belong.

  • James

    This book was supported by Common Core and Homosexuals and
    as of yet they do not control Face book, but they are trying like the devil to
    gain control.

    • felix1999

      It’s just part of the Obama plan to totally TRASH our country. To do that he MUST destroy the family and MORALITY as well as this country FINANCIALLY.

      Yes the COMMON CORE Is COMMON TRASH. Facebook is NOT offended. Facebook is OFFENDED by ANYONE critical of Obama’s agenda! There is all kinds of SMUT and CRAP on FACEBOOK, but that is okay!

      • garysvent

        Got to stay on the good side of Obamanomics and the brilliant czars of collectivism if you want to stay solvent. You endanger your company if you go against the regime, or just look successful. Corporate America is being bullied toward the Soviet State, and they are not resisting, in order to stay in business, a measly reason to sell liberty.

        Like Jews dutifully boarding trains bound for internment camps, gas-emitting showers, and human-sized ovens in another place and time. What a terrible shame some of the owners of our economy — like Facebook –are such cowards. Guess they think they’ll get a seat at the table no matter what happens to the rest of us.

    • SiRobertson

      obama and most of those he’s appointed and hired at the WH (including Holder, Napolatano, Hillary, Douglas Shulman, Rahm Emanuel, on and on) are homosexual and he wants to corrupt everything in the US with his crap, mostly our children.

      • James

        There is at least three pieces of evidence that ties Obama
        to homosexuals. The first is the Gay Choir Director that was murdered in Chicago. You have not heard anything more on this case after Obama was tied to it. Second the video where the man admits on camera that he had done drugs with Obama and they had engaged in homosexual acts together at least 3 times. The
        third one I cannot recall all the details and I do not have access to my records right now. Obama supports these homosexuals because they are more of a threat to our way of life than the terrorist. In every case where the homosexuals were given their “gay card” (discrimination laws) they have taken away your right to get a job. The do this because if a homosexual applies for the job and is not hired he sue for discrimination. The business will have to ignore your application in order to avoid a costly legal battle. You will also lose your right to free speech and freedom of religion, because you are not allowed to say anything bad about the
        queers, even your preacher can not preach the bible because the bible says homosexuality is a sin. If you doubt this just look at the law suits against business because they would not cater to them.

    Just More Of The Slippery Slope We’re Heading Down All The Way To Here…

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or 
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a 
check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not
to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that 
was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from 
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty 
F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make 
you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is
run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head 
searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but 
is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions 
of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his 
teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class 
in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more 
government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with 
Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free
cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses 
but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to 
provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was 
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest 
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a 
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government 
forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself 
makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    The Daily Caller reported the school in question never approved the book for use in class. They stated the story was false. A little more investigative journalism is need on this story.

  • sandraleesmith46

    The answer to that question at the end is obviously that approval wasn’t in God’s Name or by His will, in the least. Those images are porn and not fit for people my age, let alone children. I never saw such images in my nursing school text books, or my Mom’s, for that matter. The images were often grotesque, certainly explicit for what they were depicting, but NOT in a mocking manner such as those presented for the kiddies’ viewing! These were intended, not to educate or enlighten, but to ridicule, and desensitize children.

  • pudintain

    You should post that here and let us comment’rs re-post is. There’s 50+ people here who would gladly re-post it I’m sure. Something like when people re-post YouTube videos because YT pulls them. Get that back out there. This is just unreal.

    And have you seen some of the info they’re peddling as ‘history’? You need to get your kids out of the public indoctrination system and tomorrow isn’t soon enough.

    I don’t see how helpful it is for kids to look at an obese guy naked. It feels like child abuse making them look at that. I feel abused just looking at it, actually.

      You reckon it would be better if the naked guy was more Adonis-like in physique?
