Why are sexy books banned more than violent books?
I don't agree with libraries banning books. I can remember librarians asking me as a kid if I had my parents' permission to check out books from the adult section--(this seems reasonable), --but I was only questioned about the "sexy" books-- never about those based on horror or murder. What's the deal?
Such a great question and one I really don't know the answer for but one I wished I really did.
I have wondered the same thing myself I hate that people are so worried about what we read that they forget a persons creativity is built through many things such as reading,writing,drawing etc....Censor this,censor that,but teach kids how to shoot guns we are becoming a very warped Nation.
It really comes down to how you define "sexy". Erotic or pornographic shouldn't be in a public library, and if you want that, there's thousands to choose from in stores (more popular in the USA), or just nip down to the local newsagent and pick up a copy of Razzle there (EU).
I suppose horror/suspense reads aren't as graphic as films. Now, that's a stereotype or wild guess at best. But do they really promote violence? People aren't advertising these books on TV or showing live-action depictions of what's going ot happen in the book. We're safe from violence like this.
As prettynutjob30 says, we are censoring a lot but (metaphorically speaking) teaching children how to arm up. And yet somehow people younger than the age ratings have access to so-called violent video games and film....?
