Is Hanover School Superintendent Wilson Allowing Porn in School Libraries? You be the Judge!

Wilson Political Cartoon

The Jamelle Wilson Oblivion Express

 

I received an email from a Mechanicsville Resident concerning a battle he has been waging with Hanover School Superintendent Jamelle Wilson about a book titled ” 12 Reasons Why” by Jay Asher.

The email, in the form of a Letter to the Editor here at Virginia Right! reads:

The February 25, 2015 edition of the Mechanicsville Local vol. 31, no. 43 documented my recent battle with Superintendent Jamelle Wilson and the Hanover School Board regarding the book “The Thirteen Reasons Why”, a reading resource currently available to middle and high school students. “The Thirteen Reasons Why” is a sexually explicit book which graphically portrays suicide, rape, masturbation, sexual battery, voyeurism and digital penetration.

In spite of the fact that the book’s content meets the definition of pornography for the Miriam Webster dictionary and Virginia Criminal Code, it doesn’t seem to bother Superintendent Wilson and members of the school board. Only one board member, John Axselle, objected to keeping the book on the shelves, not because of its sexually graphic content, but because of the way the book’s message was delivered.

The real question of course, is this; when and under what circumstance is it ever appropriate to provide sexually explicit reading resources to our children?

Of course the right answer should be, never, and under no circumstance. Unfortunately the best answer I could get from Superintendent Wilson was that the book was to stay in spite of the fact that some students may find the book to be sexually graphic. Whether it is revised history in kindergarten and elementary text books, anti-American films shown to our high school students, or sexually graphic reading resources provided to our middle and high school students, Superintendent Wilson and our regressive school board seemed to be hell bent on changing our culture and way of life, all for the sake of political correctness and liberalism.

“In Loco Parentis”? Hardly, more like, El Loco Parentis!

Rodney D. Davis Sr. Mechanicsville

The Mechanicsville Local that reported the process Mr. Davis followed in an attempt to have the book removed from the School System’s available titles, Wilson and the school board refused to remove the book. On appeal, Wilson led through the same refusal to remove the material from the schools.

So I did a bit of digging. First, the book may be found on the internet in PDF form (here is one link). So it is easily and freely obtainable by parents who want their child to read this story of a teen who committed suicide. And therefore it is not necessary that the school carry the title out of convenience.  But the teen not only committed suicide, she recorded tapes to assess blame and guilt on everyone that ever offended her. The tapes are then passed from one “offender” to another after the girl kills herself by taking a handful of pills.

In my opinion, after reading the book, it is a dangerous message to send to teens that everyone else is the cause of teen suicides. It is a liberal “blame everyone else” tale so typical of the pablum that the left loves to use to drive a narrative of blame as a means to control the behavior of others. It is the result of political correctness run amok. If only the other kids weren’t so “mean” the poor kid would still be alive.

The trouble with that is that bullying does not cause suicide in a normal, healthy society in normal, healthy people. Only in those coddled from birth in our “everyone gets a trophy” world where children do not learn to cope with adversity do the risks of suicide skyrocket to the level we see today. When I was in school, I was bullied. We all were. And I can’t recall a single case of suicide among my schoolmates. When someone bullied me, I learned to avoid, negotiate, outsmart or otherwise manipulate my bully.  Sometimes I would reach the point I could take no more and on a few occasions I kicked some ass. Others, I got my ass kicked. And life went on. Not once did I ever consider taking MY life. I will admit that on occasion I did contemplate a death, but it was not mine, I assure you.

But these days we have a pill for everything. And when we combine these pills with the culture of coddling, what the hell did you think would happen? Bullying didn’t hurt me. It made me stronger. It gave me the security in that I could deal with whatever life threw at me. I graduated from High School with an education and the confidence to succeed in life. I learned when to be aggressive and I knew when aggression was not advised. Kids these days are ill prepared to face the real world after High School. What they learn is that they should all make $15 an hour flipping burgers and get everything their heart desired. They all get the same trophy. Nobody is better than anyone. No need to keep score, that is too competitive. Let’s just play for the sake of playing. No need to face adversity.

Until the real world smacks them in the face. And then they understand that they have no skills to deal with much of anything. Their boss damn sure keeps score. Everyone does not get the trophy. Raises are based on merit – a concept the school administrators deplore.

People like Jamelle Wilson are confident in their knowledge, their education and they come across as arrogant and aloof. They have been taught that when someone like me or Mr. Davis voice objections to methods and materials used in our schools that we are the problem. That they know more than we know. And all the while, clear-headed thinkers see the damage and destruction of Wilson’s policies and what they are doing to our kids. We are “prudes” or worse, right wingers who want to ban books. But what they can’t see is their own failure. They are incapable of honestly assessing the tragic outcomes of their policies. We have a nation of weak, neutered drones graduating from our High Schools and headed to the university level of indoctrination that will turn them into brainless and spineless adults who think that opening our boarders and working with people who vow to kill us somehow makes sense.

The part of this book that I find most distasteful is the willingness on the part of people like Wilson to teach children that the cause of suicide is bullies. People that are not nice are to blame. The classmates who don’t pretend you are handsome or beautiful. Those who make fun of something about you. And worse, they teach these kids that it is not their fault if they think of killing themselves because someone says you have a big nose. Or you have ugly shoes.

The funny thing is that the bullies I went to school with ended up working for the kids they bullied. Because the bullied learned to cope. To deal with a bad hand.

Don’t get me wrong. There is a line between bullying and criminal activity. And we have laws to deal with that. But our society is now raising another generation of kids that are fragile and will never get better. Because they are allowed to believe they should blame others and not seek the fortitude and ability within themselves. It is someone else that’s to blame.

So my most strenuous objection is to the overall thought process that has Wilson showing a pattern of blaming others. Be it her support for “Blame America” educational materials or this “blame someone else” when you can’t cope. America didn’t cause 9/11 and we are not to blame. And no one shoved a handful of pills down the suicide victim’s throat. She failed to acquire the skills necessary to live. She failed because she was not strong enough to cope with adversity because the things Wilson wants to teach do not allow it.

And the reason Wilson is unable to see the pornographic nature of this book is because she is one of many in our education system that are intent on solving the problem by casting blame on everyone else because one child was not taught self reliance and self discipline. We were told to ignore the idiots that bullied us. Kids today are told to blame them. It is OK to be weak. Wilson is blinded to the truth because she is the problem.

But to most who are not blinded by the Liberal Theocracy, this book would most likely be seen as inappropriate to have on hand at our schools. It is available on the internet, but it’s availability in the school system implies approval. And this is outside of the curriculum Wilson is supposed to be teaching in schools and another example of why our schools are losing accreditation. The kids can download this at home where it belongs. It is not the job of the schools to social engineer our kids. And the efforts so far are abysmal anyway. Wilson has lost focus on her job.

Below is an excerpt from the book. Is it smut? Does it belong in schools when it is available freely and easily somewhere else? Comments?

 

I took off my top, pulled off my shoes, took off my pants, and climbed the wooden steps. And then? I descended into the water.
It felt so relaxing. So comforting.

I cupped the hot water in my hands and let it drip over my face. I pushed it back through my hair. I forced my eyes to shut, my body to slide down, and my head to rest against the ledge.

But with the calming water also came terror. I should not be here. I didn’t trust Courtney. I didn’t trust Bryce. No matter what their original intentions, I knew them each well enough not to trust them for long.

And I was right not to trust them…but I was done. I was through fighting. I opened my eyes and looked up at the night sky. Through the steam, the whole world seemed like a dream.

I narrow my eyes as I walk, wanting to shut them completely.

Before long, the water became uncomfortable. Too hot.
When I open my eyes, I want to be standing in front of the park. I don’t want to see any more of the streets I walked, and the streets Hannah walked, the night of the party.

But when I pushed my back against the tub and sat up to cool my upper body, I could see my breasts through my wet bra.

So I slid back down.

And Bryce slid over…slowly…across the underwater bench. And his shoulder rested against mine.

Courtney opened her eyes, looked at us, then shut them again.

I swing a fist to the side and rattle a rusted chain-link fence. I shut my eyes and drag my fingers across the metal.

Bryce’s words were soft, an obvious attempt at romance. “Hannah Baker,” he said.

Everyone knows who you are, Bryce. Everyone knows what you do. But I, for the record, did nothing to stop you.

You asked if I had fun at the party. Courtney whispered that I wasn’t at the party, but you didn’t seem to care.

Instead, your fingertips touched the outside of my thigh.

I open my eyes and pound the fence again.

I clenched my jaw and your fingers moved away.

“It broke up pretty fast,” you said. And just as fast, your fingertips were back.

I hold tight to the fence and keep walking forward. When my fingers pull away from the metal, my skin slices open.

Your whole hand was back. And when I didn’t stop you, you slid your hand across my belly. Your thumb touched the bottom of my bra and your pinky touched the top of my underwear.

I turned my head sideways, away from you. And I know I didn’t smile.

You pulled your fingers together and rubbed slow, full circles around my stomach. “Feels nice,” you said.

I felt a shift in the water and opened my eyes for one brief second.

Courtney was walking away.

Do you need more reasons for everyone to hate you, Courtney?

“Remember when you were a freshman?” you asked.

Your fingers made their way under my bra. But you didn’t grab me. Testing the boundaries, I guess.

Sliding your thumb along the underside of my breasts.

“Weren’t you on that list?” you said. “Best ass in the freshman class.”

Bryce, you had to see my jaw clench. You had to see my tears. Does that kind of shit turn you on?

Bryce? Yes. It does.

“It’s true,” you said.

And then, just like that, I let go. My shoulders went limp. My legs fell apart. I knew exactly what I was doing.

Not once had I given in to the reputation you’d all set for me. Not once. Even though sometimes it was hard.
Even though, sometimes, I found myself attracted to someone who only wanted to get with me because of what they’d heard.

But I always said no to those people. Always!

Until Bryce.

So congratulations, Bryce. You’re the one. I let my reputation catch up with me—I let my reputation become me—with you. How does it feel?

Wait, don’t answer that. Let me say this first: I was not attracted to you, Bryce. Ever. In fact, you disgusted me.

And I’m going to kick your ass. I swear it.

You were touching me…but I was using you. I needed you, so I could let go of me, completely.

For everyone listening, let me be clear. I did not say no or push his hand away. All I did was turn my head, clench my teeth, and fight back tears. And he saw that. He even told me to relax.

“Just relax,” he said. “Everything will be okay.” As if letting him finger me was going to cure all my problems.

But in the end, I never told you to get away…and you didn’t.

You stopped rubbing circles on my stomach. Instead, you rubbed back and forth, gently, along my waist. Your pinky made its way under the top of my panties and rolled back and forth, from hip to hip.

Then another finger slipped below, pushing your pinky further down, brushing it through my hair.

And that’s all you needed, Bryce. You started kissing my shoulder, my neck, sliding your fingers in and out. And then you kept going. You didn’t stop there.

I’m sorry. Is this getting too graphic for some of you? Too bad.

When you were done, Bryce, I got out of the hot tub and walked two houses away. The night was over.
I was done.

I tighten my fist and lift it in front of my face. Through my teary eyes, I watch the blood squeeze through my fingers. The skin is cut deep in a few places, torn by the rusted fence.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
