Ex-porn star reading to LA students causes stir
COMPTON, Calif. -- Some parents have filed complaints with the Parent-Teacher Association after a former adult film star said she read to children in a classroom at a Los Angeles County elementary school.

Sasha Grey, a 23-year-old ex-porn actress who has appeared in mainstream shows like HBO's "Entourage," was a guest earlier this month at Compton's Emerson Elementary School for Read Across America Day.

Grey tweeted Nov. 2 that she spent the day reading to students in the first and third grades.

KTLA-TV ( http://bit.ly/uZ5zY8) quoted parents questioning whether it was appropriate to have Grey at the school. Parent Dudley Wheaton wondered why the school couldn't find a fireman or a police officer to read to students.

That's the only way their objections make sense, right?

Don't you just love patriarchy. All the dudes demanding FREE SPEECH so they can watch their pron. And they demand that women have the 'freedom' to act in pron films. And then when a woman leaves that industry, she is vilified. See, women can only be whores or madonnas...that's patriarchy. Pathetic culture we live in.

Good for her to volunteer reading to the kids. Where were the dudes watching pron? Oh, watching pron....the dudes just don't have time to volunteer.

Edited on Sat Nov-12-11 05:11 PM by TheDebbieDee
is CONTAGIOUS! This stuff rubs off on people, especially impressionable little children.

Innocent children who didn't even know what a pornstar was until their parents started making a big deal out of a pornstar that READS.

:sarcasm:

12. Cool
Maybe if we were all porn stars people wouldn't be so uptight about things.

If I were running that school, I'd lecture those parents on God's forgiveness, which is what they're not doing.

God forgives, most people do not. Once you've done something wrong, most people, including many Christians, will not forgive or forget.

And i wouldn't be bothered by it even if she was still making porn.

I just don't see the big ass deal.

(Pun intended)

18. When did we become such a squeemish nation?
I just don't understand what this country's collective problem is with sex.

And why a fireman or police officer? They don't have sex? Sure, Authoritarian parents *WOULD* be more comfortable with an Authoritarian Ideal of a "Hero", wouldn't they?

These bluenoses are so afraid that Murrika's gonna collapse in a heap of decadence "Just like ancient Rome did!" that they're gonna push it off the cliff in the other direction.

43. Yeah, it does.
Fuckin' Calvinists...

I just got finished with a magazine article about sex education for 6-grade girls (12 year-olds) the article said that the statistics showed a decrease in the incidence of teen-age pregnancies. This article was from 1944.

Yep, 1944.

It also stated that the program they were describing had NO opposition from parents when it was introduced into the schools.

Now fast-forward almost 70 years and hysteria and fiction rule the roost. Can't tell 12-y-o about sex, my GAWD! they're too young, and besides, you educate them about sex and they're liable to, you know, EXPERIMENT!!!

I think we've become more superstitious, uptight, and primitive in our thinking. We're not becoming more decadent and permissive, a large portion of the population is becoming more ultra-conservative, and these puritanical "Good Old Days" they pine for haven't existed for nigh on 400 years.

300,000 unique computers identified by law enforcement trafficking in the most brutal and violent child pornography movies and images




yes, what is the issue in the u.s. being concerned about the health of our kids. silly parents. "They don't have sex?", "Murrika's gonna collapse in a heap of decadence", "Just like ancient Rome did!"

"I just don't understand what this country's collective problem is with sex." truly, i dont understand america's problem with sex, either. tell me about "plymouth rock". how arrogant we are





http://outkickthecoverage.com/where-are-the-adults-at-penn-state.php

"Where are the adults at Penn State?"

The number of Jerry Sandusky victims is now over twenty and climbing. The reality is there are probably over a hundred kids who were victimized over the past three or four decades. Decades!

Is it any wonder then that Jerry Sandusky was allowed to be a monster for so long?

30. That's the way to get people to leave the porn industry.
Trap them by not ever forgiving them,and allowing them to try on new careers,even if they leave the industry at a young age like 23.
