If this is true;

Quote:
one pic shows a man painting on a boy’s butt, another has the boy walking as a naked model on the red carpet with adults watching
That's inappropriate.

I know Abbott's storm troopers would ban it in Texas schools, yet Mein Kampf is still allowed.

In high school literature class we were reading a Vietnam war novel filled with expletives (and F-bombs). It was a hit.

After my mom (who worked in the field of public education for 20 years before retiring in 2019)
took a look at this pic, she had the same reaction as you regarding this teacher.

"So idiotic."

It's a fairly strange book. I remember the author described the boys physiques and them being nude a bit much.

It was a hot climate, no adult supervision.Clothes would be hot, dirty and smelly with no Mom to launder them.Most kids would shuck them.
Kids here go skinny dipping when there are no grownups around.
Some adults also.lol

in Japan, there's a children's book character named butt detective. he's a detective, with a butt for a face. ... google image search will however give a wide variety of results if you search the term. ....

I found his descriptions smacked of eroticism. And I mean at the time when was about 14 and the book was part of school curriculum. The teacher asked, "what do you think about the author? Do you think he likes kids?". Well...

Although the part that was genuinely disturbing to me at the time, was the vivid description of
Piggy's death. Simon's too

The overall theme is that the southern states want to ban books that aren't in line with the right-wing, Evangelical equivalent of Sharia law.

Sadly, the "Deep South Biblical Trump Belt States'

Are Increasingly Becoming the "Butt of Jokes"

For More Liberal "Forward Thinking" Folks;

Yawn, It's No Surprise;

Folks Who Stick Close
To Rural Areas tend to be
More Conservative Than Nomads
Who Escape the Cave And Old Cave Art

For Greener Lands of Prosperity; As Generally
Science Studies Show 20 Percent of the Animal Kingdom
Leans Toward Sitting and 80 Percent of the Animal Kingdom Leans

Toward Roving

Including Humans

As Yes There is that Other

25 to 30 Percent or so even increasing
Somewhat Environmentally So As Humans
Live A Much More Sedentary Life Literally Attached

to 2-D Screens, Failing to 'Scan The Horizon' For Deeper
Natural Instincts And Intuitions to Come into Free Play

of Imagination and Creativity; Sort of Like A Book Aimed
At a Target Audience of Ages 2-6 as 'Toilet Humor' is

A Common First Step Toward the Development of
Imagination and Creativity For the Next Picasso

or Mozart or Beethoven Or Lord Knows Even

A Semi-Fictional Buddha, Jesus, or

Lao Tzu To Appear on New

Coming Real Human

Horizons too...

YET NOT SO MUCH IF THEY
ARE SPANKED FOR DANCING IN
CHURCH ADMONISHED WITH SCOLDS

OF QUIET HANDS AND FEET JOHNNY
AND JANE SIT STILL AND NO SPOT THE
DOG CANNOT COME TO CHURCH WITH US....

Yet, Yes Service Dogs are allowed in Walmart
Where at Least They required Their Employees
to Wear Masks During the Deadliest Parts of the

Pandemic Where There Was no Social Distancing
Or Masks Required in the Delta Variant Part at Church

As True at that Place Remember Life After Death is the Best....

Hmm...

Hmm....

Is the Human Condition
Rational: NO as Science
Shows We Basically Hallucinate
Our Realities as We Go Based on
The Stories We Co-Create as Culture
Individually and "Group-Wise" Before;

Which Means Almost Anything Goes and
Will Not Go Depending on What Group Think
Thinks As They/We Basically Hallucinate Their/Our Realities
to Come in the Stories of CuLTuRES They/We Continue to Co-Create

ThiS way

OMG!

The Human
Story Has No Limits;

Yet of Course When Rarified
Abstract Constructs like Words
And Culture Becomes Worshipped
As a Way of Life; Perhaps the Best Thing to do

If You are A Teacher in Deep South Biblical Trump Belt Ways
in Mississippi in That Deep State South Here is DO NOT READ

(Or As An ASSistant

Principle of A

School Or Other
TeacheR AS Such)

TOILET HUMOR
BOOKS TO KIDS

ON ZOOM; as Levels
of Disgust as Science Shows
Are Usually Higher Among Conservative
Leaning Folks As A Matter of Personality True too...

Open Minded Folks Will Be Much More Open to See the
Aesthetic Value of A Michelangelo Sculpted David or Jesus

As Opposed to
More Closed

Minded

Conservative
Leaning Folks as
Research By Jonathan
Haidt, Famous Social
Scientist, Does Still Show
And Others Too of Course
in the Area of Personality Studies too...

The Catholic Church Covered Up the Statue
of Jesus Fully Nude; Yes, until the Year 2017,
When/Where Finally 'The Full Monty' Was Exposed

Yet Not Unlike The Statue of David by
Michelangelo Not Much to See Really
By Today's 'Male Hopeful Standards'

As Smaller Male Human "Packages" Were
Considered Aesthetically Pleasing then
And The Other Stuff Was Just Considered 'Grotesque'

And More 'Animal-Like' in Presentation; Hmm... Like

i Said

It All
Depends
on the Culture
at Hand 'When in Rome'

You Blend in Enough to Survive

And Perhaps Do Your Freer Art Wherever

You Find a New or Older 'Renaissance Fair'
For Displaying More Open Minded Art For Freer FULLER Expression...

Yet in Mississippi Unless You Wanna Get Fired DO NOT READ A BOOK
ABOUT TOILET HUMOR TO KIDS ON ZOOM IN AN AREA MORE APT TO BE

(Even if You
Really Need
A New Butt)

POPULATED BY

FOLKS WHO
Trend More
AS CLOSED
MINDED AND
MUCH MORE
EASILY DISGUSTED
BY TOILET HUMOR FOR KIDS...

MAN, THAT'S JUST COMMON
SENSE IF YA WANNA KEEP A JOB...

Meanwhile in Florida, The Usual 'Butt'
of Open Minded Jokes, The Word Gay May
Not Be Allowed to Be Brought up in Lower Grades
of School Too Yet Guess What As Science Empirically
Shows Through All the Human And Non-Human Animal

Kingdom As Long As Heterosexual Animals, Including Humans,
Have Offspring Gay is Gonna Be A Way Whenever Population Stresses
Come Influencing Hormones in the Womb To Continue the Greatest Law of

All Nature's
Law of Balance

And the Fact is
We Are All Born
With Butt Cracks HAha...

("i Need A New Butt")

My Wife Thought the Book Was
Hilarious You Can Find it on Youtube
Read for Free; Her Favorite Part Was "Get

A New Butt Like a Sports Car From the 60's"

With the Backdrop of the Statue of Liberty Showing in

That Book And It's True When We Got Married 32 Years ago

Hehe Much Later my Wife Complained i Had a Flat Butt then...

Not Now,

She Says
i Really Do
Have a Sports
Car Butt From the
60's Now Yep Born on 6.6.60

(16,303 Miles of Public Dancing
in 102 Months Changes 'Things)

And Of Course Since i Really Do Do
Fully Nude Art in Appropriate Avenues

For That And Semi-Nude Art in PG Ways too
i Can Most Definitely Prove it Yet this is not an

Appropriate Avenue for that So For Now At Least hehe

You'll
Have to
Use Your
Imagination, HAha...

We LiVE iN Such a Really 'Crazy Society'
Sex Sells Everything Almost Everywhere

Except
For Frigging
Basic Human
Common Sense All
Natural Yet Sadly Lost

Among Layers and Layers
of Truly the Insanity of All the
Cultural Tools; Yes, Clothes We Wear

Separating Us from All the Gifts of Our Natural
Naked, Enough, Whole, Complete Inheritance if We

Are Ever Able to Scan the Horizon Long Enough to 'See' it Again...

What's Really Nice About Free Avenues for Art on the Internet Is You
Really Get to Escape 'Rome' and Return to 'The Renaissance Fair' And Truly

Be A
Renaissance
Man And Or Woman Again...

And Even Look Somewhat like
A Statue of A 'Greek God and or Goddess'

If You Develop 'The Right Stuff' Man And Or Woman For Real...

Meanwhile, When In 'Rome' Do Be Cautious, Even More So in

'Deep South
Biblical
Trump
Belt States'...

(And if You are on
CNN No 'Jeffrey
Toobin' Stuff Please)

Like i Love to Sing;
If Ya Can Fool 'Em
into thinking You Can
Hit a Home Run on the
Southern Baptist Softball Team

Free Pass Down Here in Trump States Deep...

You'll Make 'Their Team' in a 'New York Jesus Minute' Down South...

Aut
o
Mat
i
C
Ally...

Yet You Might
Have to Press
Some 1520 Poundage
of Leg Weight to Make
(Or Crack) 'The Grade 'A' Egg'...

Yawn,
Have
A Nice
SunsHiney Day.
WHere i Live Hehe
The Sun Shines EverywHere
Always Now Just Like The Garden

of Eden

Exposed

For Free Again For Real..:)

That's true, but, in this particular case, I think a lot of people across the political spectrum would agree that the book is not appropriate.
