Strongly oppose SB656

This "solution" of an imaginary problem will do real-world harm to students. Existing laws sufficiently provide for parental supervision; we should let teachers and librarians do their jobs without worrying about vague definitions of "sexually explicit content." By attempting to preserve "innocence," this bill would impose devastating ignorance.
