Fifty shades of GG? No thanks

It is a book that has the imprimatur of the Governor General of Canada and the applause of the Canadian artistic and media elite, and yet I can’t read the first line or much of the first few pages on television.
Did I mention this is supposedly a children’s book?

Don’t take this column as some sort of call to ban the novel When Everything Feels Like the Movies, but rather a really big question: When did nonstop stories of sex become the kind of “children’s literature” that wins the biggest award in the country and $25,000 worth of taxpayers’ money?

Let’s be blunt. The reason Raziel Reid’s novel won is because it is about a gay teen in a small-minded, bigoted town – that’s how the Canada Council for the Arts described it as they awarded the book the prestigious prize. I’ve read the first chapter and some excerpts, enough to get a taste. National Post columnist Barbara Kay, who also questions the book getting this award, read the entire thing.

    Atwood’s, sex with bears is another of our prevert government’s favourites

    • Bears should launch a Human Rights Complaints.

    No worries, most teens don’t know how to read anyways.

    It happened when liberals started mainstreaming homosexuality and pushing sexual deviancy in their children. It also ties in with and sets the stage for their impending push to socially engineer the acceptance of pedophilia as well.
    My question is why this particular book was chosen when every second children’s book (and most adult fiction) – pushes sexual deviancy as well. Good grief, will somebody please tell the gay hipsters and ugly lesbians in the publishing industry that they’re flogging a dead horse? We get already! You are a bunch of sexually disturbed idiots that think ugly is beautiful, beautiful is evil, and that lunacy is sanity. Good luck with that – but as a starving reader…I would really, REALLY appreciate an author with a STORY to tell right about now. Fictional novels should be about entertainment and I am sick and fuggin tired of left wing turd brains using them to preach their idiot ideologies.
    Here’s a heads up fellas – if you don’t want to get burned by shelling out for stinker books…don’t buy anything written by a woman. That will eliminate 70% of the stinkers off your reading list right there.

      Very well said.

    • “It happened when liberals started mainstreaming homosexuality and pushing sexual deviancy in their children.

    • Believe me, I’m not joking when I suggest the TDSB and Ontario Ministry of Education are NAMBLA members.

      • Exile1981

        I don’t think it’s a joke, at this point I suspect if you want a good cushy job with the Ontario Ministry or re-education you need to make sure your NAMBLA membership is in good order.

      I’ve gone back to reading Dirk Pitt novels from the 70’s.

        Yep. I used to like SF but it has fallen as a genre to the pink shirts. Unless you want to read about queers in space, or strong independent women emoting in a time machine…the SF genre is pretty much a write off.

        • Exile1981

          Actually so far the safehold series by david weber has no pink shirts and is a pretty good story (up to book 7)

    Karl Marx said that religion is the opiate of the masses. For Liberals, sex is the opiate. Promise them a chance to screw, and they will sell their birthright for a pottage. Liberal followers have already done that. Nothing must be allowed to interfere with that message. They must sexualize our children, so they can have access to to them.

    • Children are the new frontier.

    • “They must sexualize our children, so they can have access to to them.” Its a sort of large-scale, mainstream “grooming”.

    I’m gonna write a book, about a left-handed, transexual, muzzle’em convert to satanism, who’s french-speaking, one-legged, addicted to oxys, single-parent, Metis, votes Liberal, drives an electric hybrid, near-sighted, wears dentures, drinks Niagara wines and simply adores Gianni Ghomeshi..

    • And is anti-Israel (though perhaps Jewish), pro-“Palestinian” and pro-BDS, don’t forget. That’s sure to make the protagonist a sympathetic figure.

      • Cripes that’ll get ya a Nobel!

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        Zionophobic.

      the Niagara wines thing might be a bit to “out there”

    • Maggat

      Who is going to play the lead in the movie?

  • Gary

    What, she beat out a Transgender person. I thought that trans was the new gay.

  • Frau Katze

    Another government FAIL. I’m shocked! Shocked!
