School Days, Real Ones


After several thousand people wrote in protest, Scholastic Books, the world's largest publisher of kids' books, has reversed an
earlier decision and included in its spring fairs a book with a set of
lesbian parents. Scholastic had asked the author of "Luv Ya Bunches" (a
title, admittedly, we're not all that crazy about) to change the two
moms of one girl to a heterosexual couple; she declined. The change
marks the fourth time in six months that companies have changed
decisions based on protests from members. More campaigns here.

parents...It's not an issue to clean up or hide away." - author Lauren
