I’m surprised when any book is banned or challenged, but the continual obsession with challenging The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian absolutely stupefies me. That book has the tamest sexual content I’ve ever seen. I’m stunned people can find anything to object to.
They banned a book about soldiers for profanity? What’s next, a soldier’s right to breathe?
It’s almost like they’re banning everything that doesn’t fit into their fantasy worldview of a perfect little world where everything is just perfect and OK.
Most adults are stupid like that. They don’t want children learning about the real world because they think kids aren’t smart and can’t handle things that might happen later on in their lives.
Team Thugs + Pokemon!
lindsay - moltres because of her kazooie mc skin (and she’s def a fire type)
kdin - I got a lot of suggestions for dragon pokemon but went with chandelure as it’s one of his fav and goes with the colors of his enderdragon mc skin
caleb - eevee because they’re both adorable
