Intrepid Dad Arrested While Trying to Ban Dirty Porno Sex Book

New Hampshire resident William Baer was just STEAMED (in the angry way, not in the Jesus-approved marital-bed kind of way) when his precious daughter was assigned a book to read in school that featured not only descriptions of sex-genitals, but ALSO SEX-GENITAL TOUCHINGS.

Baer described the book—Nineteen Minutes—as "like the transcript for a triple-X-rated movie," so naturally he took his misgivings to a school board meeting. Where he was arrested. For daring a cop to arrest him.

Via Wonkette:

And then he went to the meeting, where during the two-minute comment period he attempted to have that much-anticipated discussion, asking board chair Sue Allen for documentation of the error and asking her to read the notice that the school sent Monday, which he considered inadequate because it only referred to "high school relationships, some of them unhealthy." He then demanded that someone read the passage on page 313 aloud, at which point his two minutes were over.

Another parent, Sara Carrignan, also complained that she was "utterly appalled" by the book and the oversight, and that her son "had this book in his hands for a week." She also considered the notice "garbage."

When a third parent was speaking in favor of the book and saying that he didn't want other parents trying to ban it, Baer interrupted, calling the man's position "absurd"; Allen asked him to stop talking. He replied, "That's fine…It's absurd. Why don't you have me arrested? Why don't we do that as a civics lesson, nice First Amendment Lesson."

We were not aware that the First Amendment guarantees the right to interrupt people during a meeting, as long as you're really sure you need to, but we learn all sorts of things from the internet.

Allen asked Baer, "Sir, would you please be respectful of the other people?" and he shot back, "Like you're respectful of my daughter, right? And my children?"

As Wonkette notes, the book's actual "offensive" sexy sex passage—they posted an extensive excerpt over here—is actually a stark and realistic depiction of date rape.

Certainly wouldn't want to educate our daughters about that. No sir.
