After Police Are Alerted About Graphic LGBT Book, MA Governor Rails Against ‘Book Banning’

 A police officer was called to a Massachusetts middle school earlier this month following an anonymous complaint that a controversial and sexually graphic LGBT book was being read inside an 8th grade classroom.

The book, called “Gender Queer,” includes illustrations of sex between two males with a sex toy, oral sex, masturbation, and other sexually explicit content.

An officer from the Great Barrington Police Department went to the school, W.E.B. Du Bois Regional Middle School, to follow up on the complaint on December 8, but reportedly did not find the book in the female English teacher’s classroom.

Police then notified the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, though the investigation was eventually dropped because the office determined the matter was to be “managed within the Berkshire Hills Regional School District,” the New York Post reported.

The incident caused an uproar from LGBT advocates and others on the Left, including the state’s Democrat Governor Maura Healey, who said, “Book banning has no place in Massachusetts.”

Healey presumably believes there is not a single book that should be off-limits to children in publicly-funded schools.

As highlighted by The Daily Wire, even the book’s author, Maia Kobabe, has said the content is not for children. Kobabe, who identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns “e, em, and eir,” said that while her book might be appropriate for “older teens,” she does not recommend it for children.

“It keeps being called a children’s book … but I think that’s coming from a misreading of the comic-book form. ‘Gender Queer’ is a comic, and in full color, but that doesn’t mean it’s for children. I originally wrote it for my parents, and then for older teens who were already asking these questions about themselves. I don’t recommend this book for kids!” she told The Washington Post in an interview published back in September.


Notably, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) read some of the book’s most graphic passages during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in September.

“I got a new strap-on harness today. I can’t wait to put it on you. It will fit my favorite dildo perfectly,” one excerpt from the book reads, according to Sen. Kennedy.

“I can’t wait to have your c*** in my mouth,” “Gender Queer” continues. “I’m going to give you the best b***job of your life, then I want you inside of me.”
