A Texas mother stood up before her school board on Wednesday to complain about descriptions of anal sex appearing in books in the Central School library – senior officers cut off her microphone.
The lady, later recognized as Kara Bell, informed the Lake Travis Independent School District board on Wednesday that Ashley Hope Perez’s e-book Out of Darkness contained inappropriate language, discussing the idea of ‘a “p *** y”, anal sex, and saying’ A Mexican is a Mexican is a Mexican. ‘
On one webpage, she said, the e-book reads, âTake it off, we boys got it, then arms over your breasts.
“Put it in its field of coins, put it in its corn hole, grab a hold of that braid, rub that calico.” “
After studying this, Bell said she found out what a “cornhole” was in this context – understanding it only because the beanbag toss game – and found out that it was a time of slang for anal sex.
âI don’t want my kids to study anal sex in central school,â Bell said.
âI’ve never had anal sex, I don’t need to have anal sex. I don’t need my kids to have anal sex, âshe continued. âI need you to start specializing in training and never in public welfare. “
Her microphone quickly went off, but Bell, herself a former school board candidate, in response to KXAN, continued to demand that the school board remove the eBook from its libraries, concluding, âDon’t train them to have anal sex. “

âCentral Texas is one of many parts of the country that has become hot spots for these eruptions of native anger and disagreement,â he told KXAN, including, âYou have a small contingent in many. many cases of mother and father who solve this problem they do not agree and they should know better than those in the classroom.
He said that many books with sexually expressive content have holistic value, educating a variety of perspectives and exposing young people to the realities of the world.
“I think falsifying books that explicitly deal with sex or sexual assault is kind of a risk to young people and doing them a disservice,” he said. “It is about giving young people access to all kinds of literature in which people from totally different backgrounds are reflected.”
Out of Darkness tells the love story between an African American boy and a Mexican American woman in the context of a 1937 explosion in East Texas, which killed 300 schoolchildren and teachers, in response to a NBC News article after printing the e-book.
