  1. I’m surprised that majority Christian areas don’t ban books on evolution, atheism, in favor of homosexuality, etc. Or maybe they do quietly, such as by making them hard to find in libraries.

  2. Hahah Harry Potter, perks of being a wallflower, fault of our stars etc being banned for the said reasons but game of thrones books not even mentioned with all the profanity, brutality and incest shown. The irony in our censorship i would say 😀

  3. I honestly hope one day humanity will illeagalize censorship. And bar morons who side with it to live on this page planet.

    Primarily Zealous religious twats and parents who refuse to MONITOR THEIR OWN FUCKING KIDS AND WHAT THEY READ/WATCH

  4. If your school bans Harry Potter your school has a problem if people who asked to ban that story actually bothered to read it they realize it’s not really about promoting witchcraft it’s about friendship, coming of age, family, and it’s two most important themes love and acceptance of death

  5. Banning books is retarded! why not ban the Lord of the Flies it teaches you that if you’re apart of a group you’re accepted but if you’re an outcast you’re pushed away
