A father attended a school board meeting recently to confront educators regarding sexual content found in a book that he says is available to his daughter, age 7.
David Todor, whose daughter attends a school in the Waterloo Region District, in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, read passages from a book called "The Bluest Eye," a national best-seller readily available on Amazon.
"I can assure you this book has been approved, and it's accessible to my daughter, the one that's seven years old by the way ... this book is approved ... for grade four to five reading level," the father remarked to the board of trustees.
"He could have been an active homosexual but lacked the courage, beastiality did not occur to him, and sodomy was quite out of the question for he did not experience sustained erections and could not endure the thought of somebody else's," the parent read.
"Who's interested in knowing and affirming, celebrating, my daughter's sexual orientation?! Why is the school board facilitating child abuse and has these books available in the library?" the father asked.
A further excerpt from the book can be read here.
The book, which the father alleges is approved for grades four to five, is recommended for ages 15 and up by several different sets of reviews on the website Common Sense Media.
A synopsis of the book reads as follows:
"Sexual behavior is also very complicated in this novel. Sex acts and feelings between adults are described, and more than one grown man behaves inappropriately with young girls. There is also incest and domestic violence, including the rape of an 11-year-old girl."
Mr. Todor later confronted trustees about the availability of their meetings online, saying that the database had been erased. Todor then quotes one of the videos that suggests the educators wish to make only summaries available, as opposed to full video or transcripts.
"When a teacher brought attention to school books in the library, the video was taken down," Todor explained.
"It seems like the entire database on YouTube was wiped ... but I did see the video. During a radio interview a trustee was asked, 'Do you think the meeting should be available online?' She said, 'It is important to have a summary that didn't quote anything verbatim, but at the same time made sure that people are aware of what's happening during the meeting,'" the father quoted.
Todor also posted the entirety of his interaction online.
