Anyone reading anything decent?
My english teacher is trying to get board approval to teach "Oranges are not the only fruit" by Jeanette Winterson, she has to get board approval because it has gay undertones, and I haven't finished it yet so I don't know who much it actually discusses Jeanette's sexuality, but my teacher says it is very subtle. I find it frustrating that I go to a school that is always preaching diversity and yet there is only one book taught written by an african american. And my principal, the one that heads our school is a lesbian! Like seriously, it shouldn't be this hard to teach a book that has subtle gay references, but my teacher has been told that she could ruin her career. Wtf.
I'm also kind of mad that Borders, where I bought the book only had one copy of the book (okay, that part is fine), but they had to put it in the lesbian/gay whatever the fuck you want to call it section. Like it was so different. And according to my teacher it's very subtle and brief. And the only books that were over there were lesbian erotica books. Like that is all we are good for?
Okay. This is mad enough for now. I'll finish the book and talk about it when I finish.
