I Like Guys (short story from Naked)

2010

Pulled from a Litchfield (NH) Campbell High School elective course classroom after parents voiced their concerns about a short-stories unit called "Love/Gender/Family Unit" that dealt with subject matters including abortion, cannibalism, homosexuality, and drug use. The parents said the stories promoted bad behavior and a "political agenda" and they shouldn't be incorporated into classroom teachings. The Campbell High School English curriculum adviser said the short story was selected not only for its tone and style, but also its message of respect and acceptance, not for advocating homsexuality. The English curriculum advisor eventually resigned.



Held at Cabell County Public Library
