Strongly oppose

I strongly oppose this proposal because sensitivity is very subjective.  We have policies in place in each school district to handle these situations as they arise.  Also, the students need these books to understand what the real world is all about.  The real world is not all rainbows and unicorns.  A student may use these books to help them feel safe and not alone.  For many more reasons, I strongly oppose this proposal.
