Virginia mom Stacy Langton spoke at a recent Fairfax County Public School Board Meeting as a very concerned parent. She spoke about her concern for the content of books found in the school library.
The video clip below shows Stacy Langton who told the school board that she was able to check out the two books at the Fairfax High School library she had seen other parents protest:
“Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer: A Memoir” by Maia Kobabe
Langton told the school board: Both of these books include pedophilia. Sex between men and boys … One book describes a fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male. The other book has detailed illustrations of a man having sex with a boy.”
The school district released a statement after Langton’s comments:
“FCPS is in the process of convening two committees made up of staff, students and parents led by our Library Services Coordinator to assess the suitability of both texts for inclusion in our high school libraries. The recommendation of the committees will be put forward to the Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services who will make a final decision as to whether FCPS continues to provide access to these books in our high school libraries.”
Thank goodness for moms like Stacy Langton who is being proactive about what her six children have access to in the school library.
