Another Common Core Porn Book Recommended Reading For High Schoolers

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a pornographic book that was recommended as an exemplar text reading material for 11th graders by the Common Core Standards.  That text was The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison.  This book was written from the point of a view of a person who enjoyed raping young girls.  It glorified rape, pedophilia and incest.

Morrison’s book was so sexually explicit that I refused to reprint some of the excerpts that I saw.  As I said then, it made Lady Chatterley look tame and mild.

It turns out that this is not the only pornographic book recommended by the Common Core Standards.  This time, the sexually explicit book was recommended for 10th grade students.  The book, Dreaming in Cuban by Christina Garcia caused a number of parents of students at Buena High School in Sierra Vista, Arizona to complain.  While it may not promote rape, pedophilia or incest like The Bluest Eye, it certainly is nothing more than a piece pornography that has no place in a school.

Like my previous post, I saw some excerpts of Dreaming in Cuban and refuse to reprint them here.  They made me feel dirty and ashamed for having read them.  The last thing we need are hormone driven teens reading about detailed sexual encounters and the community of Sierra Vista agrees with me.  One parent sent the following email to Alice Linahan, founder of Voices Empower:

“Below is a picture and an excerpt out of the book Dreaming in Cuban by Cristina Garcia.”

“This is a 10th grade literature book that was used in my son’s class at Buena High School in Sierra Vista, Arizona. The whole class read this book out loud during class. Everyone in the class had a copy of this book.”

She then included a screen shot of a page from the book that I will not reprint.

After enough complaints, the school has pulled the book from its shelves, but what damage has already been done to those students forced to read the book aloud in class?  How many other students across the nation will be forced to read either book?

Parents, do you want your teenagers reading detailed descriptions of a man and women in a shower together or to read about the conquests of a child rapist who’s proud of their conquests?  I’m telling you that the Common Core Standards is a dangerous thing if left unchecked.  You need to be looking into what your kids are being taught and if the schools in your areas are using the Common Core Standards, you need to be extra careful.  It won’t be long before hormone driven teens will be acting out what they read and I don’t think you want that to happen.
