Strongly oppose book banning!

I strongly oppose banning books and classroom censorship.

This is blatantly homophobic and transphobic.  Reading about straight characters/relationships isn’t about sex but if it’s about a lgbtq character/relationship suddenly it becomes all about sex?   

Reading lgbtq material does not make a student lgbtq.   If it was that simple just have them read a straight book and turn them back.
