fuck this shit

by -Muslin
Something recently has been brought to my attention, that indeed
PISSES ME OFF. It turns out the Non banned book, ******* No. 1
banned book, is this TRUE story about penguins, named Roy and
Silo, called "And Tango Makes Three." What the book is about is
two male penguins, who try to hatch a rock that looks like an egg. A
Zookeeper sees them trying, and decides to give them a egg from a
male and female couple who were unable to successfully hatch two
eggs themselves. The book covers the six year period which they
hatched and took care of the chick, "Tango." The Zookeeper who
gave them the egg, decided to make this into a book.
Now apparently this has brought some issues because both of the
************* penguins are male, which brought to people
attention that kids might get the idea that its to have members
of the same sex raise a family.
A ************* book about same sex penguins raising a little girl
penguin, is the No. 1 banned book.
And yet this **** lives on!

It isn't banned, at least in the US. It is the most CHALLENGED book, meaning that it has the most requests to have it banned. These requests have been continually and thoroughly denied as the book is protected by the 1st amendment. It cannot be removed from public libraries, restricted from being purchased, or even removed from the children's section of a public library.
#173 to #55 - John Cena (01/22/2014) [-]
Actually it is the most banned book, it has been banned in more countries than any other book, even if it isn't in the US.

Also even if it isn't banned properly by law, the fact that most homophobic people would either refuse to sell it or to let their kids read it means it becomes not banned, but "bashed".
User avatar #178 to #173 - ImmortalBaconEater (01/22/2014) [-]
Can you provide a source for that? Because I've spent a fair amount of time looking and cant find ANYTHING suggesting that it's banned in more countries than any other book. I'm pretty sure that's a made up fact you pulled out of your ass.

People on this site hear what they want to hear and don't stop for a moment to check whether it's actually true. Take a moment out of your day to check and maybe we can stop the spread of some of this misinformation.

anyone who read these as a kid has to look back and wonder how the **** they weren't banned ANYWHERE
User avatar #183 to #68 - captnnorway (01/22/2014) [-]
I never got the stories in those books. Only thing I remember is them being in a forest, but I have no idea what happened.
User avatar #208 to #68 - Sacrifice (01/22/2014) [-]
I used to ******* love those books. I live in England and used to get them at the library, but I could only get certain ones as they weren't particularly common. I recently got an ereader and purchased pirated the entire series. Everything was great until like the 40s where it seems like someone told Applegate to get their **** together, and everything escalated so fast. Wasn't TOO bad apart from discrepancies "oh and btw in the gap between the last book and this one we've manage to flawlessly morph clothing, rather conveniently for this situation until like, the very ending. The entire last book I hated. The entire final battle was anti-climactic IMO.

Sorry for somewhat derailing this, but I never knew anyone else who read these books.
User avatar #279 to #68 - vulper (01/22/2014) [-]
I loved them as a kid, looking back they were pretty graphic for the intended audience but hey, I thought it was a good series none the less.
User avatar #305 to #279 - lorddarkskull (01/22/2014) [-]
absolutely amazing series, but damn, I am still to this day scared of centipedes
User avatar #309 to #305 - vulper (01/22/2014) [-]
Oh right, the centipede things that had an uncontrollable hunger for flesh but were still sentient..
User avatar #310 to #309 - lorddarkskull (01/22/2014) [-]
yeah, the ******* that would start EATING THEMSELVES if they smelled their own blood
User avatar #313 to #310 - vulper (01/22/2014) [-]
To be fair, it was probably horrible for the centipedes themselves, remember the one where Visser 3 actually got the body he uses and the opposing alien squad tried to sneak in as the centipede creatures?
User avatar #314 to #313 - lorddarkskull (01/22/2014) [-]
yeah, they couldn't control themselves
User avatar #71 to #68 - dragontamers (01/22/2014) [-]

Why? Always saw them, never read them, what was in them?

Ok, so it was a series about a few teenage kids who get caught up in a war between aliens. There are a species of slug aliens that crawl into your ear canal and literally hijack your brain, having access to your memories, they perfectly blend in as a normal human. Another race of aliens sends a ship to earth severely underestimating the forces of the other. The are destroyed, and one happens to crash land near the teens. Before the slug aliens arrive, he gives the teens the ability to morph into any animal they acquire the dna of.
This is just the first couple chapters of book 1.
Some themes of the series are the horrors of war, greying morality (hence why I never refer to either of the 2 alien species as the good & evil one), and loss of innocence. Perfect stuff for kids.
To top it all off, the morphing ability runs off of dna, so any injuries are healed after you morph out. This is abused, as nearly every book has a gory dismemberment from the first person.
User avatar #273 to #113 - harbingerwolf (01/22/2014) [-]
How ******* paranoid would you be upon getting awesome morphing powers that you dont accidentally touch a **** animal before you can pick a cool one.
User avatar #290 to #273 - lorddarkskull (01/22/2014) [-]
you can acquire more than one animal, and it's not automatic, you have to concentrate really hard on that animal as you touch it
User avatar #115 to #113 - tiddycats (01/22/2014) [-]
Oh alright, thanks.
#106 to #68 - FlyingCaribou (01/22/2014) [-]
Visser Three (promoted to Visser One during the series). Not only does he sarcastically mock his subordinates, but he kills them for little-to-no reason. Didn't kill the Animorphs? Decapitated. Made a mistake? Decapitated. Interrupted the Visser? Decapitated. Closed a door too slowly? ******************** . You can't win with this guy, to the point where Yeerks pass over promotions because it means having to work with Visser Three, and therefore probably being decapi-SLASH- *thud*. Lampshaded: Jake points out that Visser Three's tendencies to kill his subordinates make them hate and fear him, making him (and them) less effective. Also, I remember a scene where one of Visser's servants slices Jake open while he is in tiger form, and he talks about his guts spilling out and the way it made him feel.

I was always wondering why are people so stupid. It is absolutely no problem to get such books as Mein Kampf, Communist Manifesto, Satanic Bible ( I have read all three of them ) you can find books full of demagogy, books from cruel evil dictators that are ,,OK" but you cannot buy book about two gay penguins because that is harming child' s mind.  What the 			****		 is wrong with this world?

Well to be honest. Idea of communism is really nice and great and everything.Really if there have been one communistic society around the world we would have heaven on earth. But it is utopia. Even the most beautiful idea can get wrong if it is implemented by wrong people that prefer brutal methods such as Lenin, Stalin etc. They are saying ,,We want world peace" and on the other side they are building armies and secret agencies. Same problem is with religion. There is nothing wrong on idea until somebody took it really seriously. People are , have been and always will be hateful, selfish creatures. That' s why idea of communism, equality and sharing is utopia.

Well, people will go to great lengths to ban stuff that they don't agree with. And that is sad. Just because something contradicts someone's worldview, doesn't make it any less right or meaningful. Unless you a zombie.

just ask north koreans how ******* fantastic their lives are

yeah...sad most of them cry the new world order doesnt exist yet cant see they're 'conforming' just the way the NWO wants
User avatar #83 to #82 - rikter (01/22/2014) [-]
Well, most people find comfort and purpose in conforming to norms set in place, be it by society or religion or something else.
User avatar #85 to #83 - konradkurze (01/22/2014) [-]
and the saddest issue is, conformity breeds ignorance and fear

having everything changed to fit a homogeneous theme breeds stupidity out of simple lack of diversity.....less diversity means less chaos and more sterility in thought processes from everything being so predictable

just look at how china and russia went under communism, their conformist ideals set them 20-30 years behind everyone else, and gods only know how far behind north korea is with its total control of people's lives

and conformity breeds fear, fear of the unknown.......having everything conform to preset ideals makes people too scared to try new things and in some cases terrified new things exist

just look at how many people think going to hawaii is some huge ******* adventure, because theyve been programmed to think going to a perfectly safe place is best,,,,,and any time someone they know goes to a more chaotic place like south america, or the middle east, or china ,metc..they start flipping their **** because they have pre-conceived notions put in their heads that those places are 24/7 dangerous
User avatar #86 to #85 - rikter (01/22/2014) [-]
Indeed. And even when travelling to a safe place, your friends will try to fill your head with fears of being robbed the instant you set foot in another country.
User avatar #88 to #86 - konradkurze (01/22/2014) [-]
yeah.....some people just cant see their stereotyping of "country X and all its people are evil because of reasons" is on the same train of thought as WW2 germany's line of 'all jews are bad because of reasons"
User avatar #89 to #88 - rikter (01/22/2014) [-]
Or even the "Coutry X is best and all others are immoral because of reasons"
User avatar #91 to #89 - konradkurze (01/22/2014) [-]
yeah
sad how so many western countries preach that arab and asian countries are JUST SO BAD for 'brainwashing' or manipulating their people....

at the same time back home, said western countries supply schools with textbooks completely whitewashing history so their country only gets good things said about it....running a 'government' where its only ever been a 2-party system both run by the same people since dirt......and pumping more money into sports events in one year than any college gets in 2-3 years
#114 to #2 - bann ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
They will try, but this book hasn't actually been banned as the top comment pointed out. What's more sad is how many people will read a post like this and just outright believe it.

Just to make clear to people that this isn't about whatever or not twilight is a well written book, but rather the morally wrong things it teach

If a boy tells you to stay away from him because he is dangerous and may even kill you, he must be the love of your life. You should stay with him since he will keep you safe forever.

If a boy leaves you, especially suddenly (while telling you he will never see you again), it is because he loves you so much he will suffer just to keep you safe.
When a boy leaves you, going into shock, losing all your friends and enduring night terrors are completely acceptable occurrences — as long as you keep your grades up. (also try to kill yourself, he will defiantly come back and save you)

Boys who leave you always come back.
Because they come back, you should hold out, waiting for them for months, even when completely acceptable and less-abusive alternative males present themselves.

Even though you have no intention of dating an alternative male who expresses interest in you, it is fine to string the young man along for months. Also, you should use him to fix things for you. Maybe he’ll even buy you something.

Lying to your parents is fine. Lying to your parents while you run away to save your suicidal boyfriend is an extremely good idea that shows your strength and maturity. Also, it is what you must do.

Car theft in the service of love is acceptable.

If the boy you are in love with causes you (even indirectly) to be so badly beaten you end up in the hospital, you should tell the doctors and your family that you “fell down the steps” because you are such a silly, clumsy girl. That false explanation always works well for abused women.

Men can be changed for the better if you sacrifice everything you are and devote yourself to their need for change.

Two gay penguins are somehow still not as gay as twilight
#214 - aviatrix (01/22/2014) [-]
One of the biggest points homophobes like to use is that homosexuality is not natural. You write about a true success story pointing out just the opposite (albeit without the sex part), and their argument kinda goes down the drain.

Not to mention there are loads of animals in nature that have been observed to practice homosexuality. Dogs, dolphins, bears, even chimps, our closest relative (except homophobia and creationism typically go hand-in-hand, so maybe not). There is a list of 1,500 animals known to not give a damn about genitalia.
