A group of furious parents lined up before Virginia's Loudoun County School Board this week to read several "pornographic" passages from books assigned to ninth graders in the district, amid a recall effort against several of the board's members.
What are the details?
In a clip from Tuesday night's meeting provided by Media Research Center, the first mom reads from a book describing a domestic violence scenario where the narrator talks about a female "coming out of some car in these tight-a** little shorts...telling me she's going to leave me."
"I grab her by the neck and start punching her," the mother continues to read. Later, the narrator describes keeping the female "in a closet for a couple of days" where "she kept on screaming, begging to be let out. Begging for water."
The rest of the excerpts were sexual in nature.
"Jasper wasn't even my boyfriend, just this dude I did some hacking with once in a while," the second mother reads. "He was pretty basic...but he had a big d***. And sometimes a girl just needs a big d***."
A third parent read about sex acts involving a "boy — his pants around his ankles — squeezed between April's straddled legs as she lay on top of a teacher's desk." The narrator describes flipping the "boy" around, "pushing him against the wall" and then dropping to their knees.
The fourth mother reads an excerpt where the narrator declares, "she sucked my d***. I didn't really want it to happen, it just kinda did." Another character in the book replies, "Wait a minute, is that what was really going on? She did your homework and you ate her c******!"
A gentleman who said he is representing a group of parents in a harassment suit addressed the board following the readings.
After listing off a number of the sexual acts covered, he pointed to the panel and asked, "By show of hands, does anyone up here want to talk about that stuff now? Not a single hand, because it's very uncomfortable and we're in a room full of adults."
He said the reason no one wants to talk about it is "because they're not acceptable topics," and added, "my kids don't go to your crap schools, but theirs do."

What was the reaction?
When asked for reaction by Fox News, Loudoun County Public Schools pointed to a news release published Wednesday where the district reminded "parents that if they feel a book is not appropriate for their student" they may "submit a formal request for the Reconsideration of Instructional Materials."
One parent, who did not want to be named, told the outlet, "This is the same district that banned Dr. Seuss and 'Huckleberry Finn' as being 'offensive,' yet they're having children read pornography that violates every code of conduct in their sexual harassment training."
