    USA: Websters DICtionary Banned From School District for Oral Sex Term

    Dictionary banned from school classroom


    An American school has banned a dictionary from classrooms. Now the Menifee Union School District is forming a committee to decide if the dictionaries should be allowed back, or permanently banned. Sounds crazy? Read on...
    The dictionary - the much-respected Merriam-Webster's Collegiate version - was pulled from classrooms after a parent at Oak Meadows Elementary School complained. This was because a child had found the definition of "oral sex" in the book (I'd guess it's there along with a lot of other "bad" words).
    The decision was made without consultation with the local school board, and parent reaction has been mixed, with some parents in favour, saying that the books shouldn't be in use for young children (aged 9/10).
    The books, which cost $24 each were, according to the Press Enterprise, bought to allow advanced readers to "look up words that they didn't know." However, spokesperson for the school district, Betti Cadmus, added that a committee would be looking into the issue and that it would "determine the extent to which the challenged material supports curriculum, the educational appropriateness of the material and its suitability to the age level of the students."
    I'd guess they don't let children near the internet then...

    What they should really do is get together and have a good old fashioned book burning.

    That'll show them libbies what they can do with their pornographic books full of Satan's words!

    Reading words like that at such a tender age is sure to turn them into rapists when they get older, anyway, on the same subject I think farm animals should be banned from having sex, also family pets, this sort of thing if seen by youngsters will turn them into child molesting adults, the world needs more artificial insemination.....

    Except teen pregnancy is rising because of all that 'abstinence only' bullshit the religious right pushed through:

    US teen pregnancy rate up for first time since 1990: study

    some of the comments on the article it came from are hilarious.

    Hilarious! It doesn't matter what country we all looked up the naughty words in the dictionary but only in the US would they ban the dictionary. What amazes me is that they let kids have calculators to do their math tests. Where was this when I was in school and had to memorize the multiplication tables for hours on end? and do all calculations on paper with the exam to show i knew how to do it.

    If they're looking it up in the dictionary, they already know what it means, Dumb-A$$ Parents Of Menifee Union School District.
    p.s. They're probably already doing it, too!

    They should learn the definition of oral sex behind the bike sheds like we did when we were at school.

    Websters should be banned from every school for being wrong.

    BG, help me out here, what does the Hershey's Hgwy have to do with this? Only ask because Hershey is just down the road from where I grew up.
