Thought Crimes - v2014

Yesterday the Toronto Public Library Board announced the results of its Annual Book Ban Review (?)  They were pleased to announce that they did NOT accept that well-loved Dr. Seuss classic "Hop on Pop" represented "violence against fathers" as had been claimed by an anonymous critic.

In fact they rejected all 7 requests - including Lizzy’s Lion, a 1984 rhyming picture book that features a girl’s pet lion eating a robber.

Both seem consistent with the stupidity of the feminist "Ban Bossy" Campaign.

And apparently this book - Cásate y Sé Sumisa (Get Married and Be Submissive) by Constanza Miriano only available in Italian - is based on the teachings of St Paul that the perfect wife is loyally obedient. But it's caused outrage amongst feminists, with some calling for the book to be banned because they say it promotes gender violence.

Is it just me - or do you see a TREND here?
