If it was a big deal, I wouldn't be doing it right now.
 
2008-12-11 05:39:40 PM
Not a big deal?! It's the only thing I remember from high school!

According to the link in the article, his precious snowflake is 14.

I've got some news for you, Mr. Moss. Your 14 year old son has already discovered masturbation. He's probably doing it now.

Oh good. Censorship for the children.

Grow up you (insert gender specific insult here).
Maybe if people stopped making sex such a shameful act, we wouldn't be such a damned uptight society.

What a jerk-off.

It's my penis, I'll wash it as fast as I want to.

It only won the National Book Award, but, hey, what the hell do they know over some sexually repressed dickhead from rural Oregon, right?
 
2008-12-11 06:58:33 PM
He's got a whole beach crammed in there. I can't believe the school district actually complied.

But Moss, the parent, said he does not think the book should be taught at any age.

"I don't think it should be for anybody," he said. "I think it's trash. I don't think a 50-year-old ought to read it."


Go sit in the corner Mr. Hairy Palms.

When I masturbate it's a really big deal. Do you know how long it takes just to set up the trusses necessary to hold my FUPA out of the way?

jaylectricity: It's my penis, I'll wash it as fast as I want to.

I LOL'd.

Seriously though... What is ideal in this man's world? That his son marry a girl at 14 and start reproducing God's intended way, missionary style, with due haste?

The Bible mentions masturbation. Remove it from the shelves at once.

Good Lord I get so farking sick and tired of these backwoods, brain-dead god-fearing hillbillies! Can't we just round them up like...well...like SOMEONE ELSE who liked to burn books???

Kinda makes you miss the 1950s, doesn't it?

Life was so much easier when everyone was ashamed of their genitals, hated black people, and put communists in jail.
 
2008-12-11 07:44:47 PM
Teenagers masturbate? Who knew?

If you are 50 and outraged by masturbation, I find it highly unlikely you are able to read.

I would honestly like to see this guy get hit by a book-mobile.

Yeah, the Romans tried that. I guess an emperor having child sex slaves that he throws off a cliff if they don't satisfy him is a minor inconvenience compared to a society that is overly "uptight".

What an idiot

on the other hand, why exactly was masturbation a plot point?

Gawd says you seed is better used in the belly of a whore than it is wasted on the ground.


Gawd like Whores and hates fapping.

I masturbated once just to prove a point about how harmless it is, and the judge had me locked up for contempt.

Molavian:No gays, either.

There weren't any gay people in the 1950s! They were all indoctrinated in the 70s. Remember, being gay is a lifestyle choice and does not occur naturally.

Can we get a list of everyone that's supposed to read it in class and send them each a copy?

I notice the "good" boy appears to be having trouble falling asleep. Either that, or the other one woke him up...

You do realize there is a light year of difference between having sex slaves and masturbating, right?

If you don't know the difference, it's probably one of the reasons why you are hung up on masturbation.

If this book has this father so upset that he thinks noone should read it, I may have to read it just to see what the problem is.

Why are conservatives obsessed with sex?
 
2008-12-11 07:52:47 PM
Masturbation is only a big deal because nobody knows how to knock on a door anymore before just barging in.

At least, that's what I find myself yelling.

The guy is an asshat, but leave the kids out of it. Growing up with a parent like that must be bad enough.

TGWJH: Can we get a list of everyone that's supposed to read it in class and send them each a copy?

I'd rather get Mr Hank Moss a subscription to Penthouse Letters. What's he doing perusing his son's reading assignment anyway? Besides, y'know, looking for something to get pissy over.

Hey, there's even a phone # for Square Dot Saddlery. I found it on the internets.

I believe that you have established a false dichotomy.
