    As consumers, we can simply choose not to purchase any book which offends us or read material which we find objectionable.

    Thanks... Sorry to let my contempt for the "In your face" consumer culture bleed through...(Ijust don't think this qualifies as "Stuff youth NEED to know")...

    I think that when children reach a certain age they should be taught about sex by parents that aren't too scared to broach the subject. The other option is for them to learn about it through books such as this which only adds to the earlier sex parties that kids are having now. It is one thing entirely to tell little johnny that if he doesn't watch his shot, another life will come along, we should not be bringing up the subject of which position to take. That takes all the fun out of it. Exploration is a thing for a couple to find on their own. It should not come down to what is in a 'manual'.

    Besides, haven't they learned by now that most people throw away the instructions anyhow? I don't use them on anything. Buy a dvd player and tinker till I get it right is how I do. We don't need no stinking instructions. And who are they to be giving these instructions? I wonder how many of them have been divorced or been promiscuous throughout their time. If I had a child and they were being exposed to this type of material then I would raise nine kinds of cain.

    It is for me to decide what my child learns about certain things. As far as I know, this isn't a Party run educational system. Big brother just wants to put his hands into everything we do. Next there is going to be a manual on how to 'Breathe Right'. 'For those who take up too much oxygen in one breath. That is not healthy. You should only inhale for 1.2359 seconds and exhale for 2.241 seconds. That is the correct way to do it.'

    Believe only half of what you see and none of what you hear.

    I really find this WalMart "censors" music...The one here doesn't carry Melissa Ethreridge's music as she is a lesbian.....

    Or a lot of Buffett because of one certain song....

    Or Cyndi Lauper because of "She Bop", etc.....

    But they'll carry this book? LMAO!

    RH? You're right....we have a choice....Thank God...there's a lot of reasons I don't even shop Walmart.......They are so inconsistent with their policy and just plain stupid at times.....

    I figure its fine for them to have it available and figure they should not bother to censot the music either, even the rap crap I detest. Those that dont want it can walk on past and keep it out of their carts, those who do can buy it. As far as the kids, I dont see where it is their job to decide what is and isnt for the kids, thats what parents are supposed to be for.
