Reading to kids, do you edit?

Honestly though if she's reading on her own she's probably old enough for you to read it verbatim and explain the racist concepts and why they aren't acceptable/would have been put in the book. She's going to run into these concepts at school, better that she understands what is/isn't acceptable, and why, when she does. Of course, bed time, while reading a chapter of the book, may not be the most convenient time for that.

That's pretty much where I am. We always try to answer her honestly and explain things, but I don't really want to get into a discussion about race and the evolution of language over the last half century while she's falling asleep.

I do point out frequently that CS Lewis was closeted *** racist and tell her that all Christians are that way, of course. I mean there's always time for SOME lessons.

To make a long story short, I don't take any responsibility for anything I post here. It's not news, it's not truth, it's not serious. It's parody. It's satire. It's bitter. It's angsty. Your mother's a *****. You like to jack off dogs. That's right, you heard me. You like to grab that dog by the bone and rub it like a ski pole. Your dad? ***. Your priest? Straight. **** off and let me post. It's not true, it's all in good fun. Now go away.
