“Fifty Shades Of Grey” Banned From Libraries In Florida
1:15 pm, May 5th | by Amy Tennery
Library services director Cathy Schweinsberg said the move wasn’t based on any kind of public outcry (because, really, who’s complaining about free porn?). In fact Schweinsberg said that the library department purchased copies of the book before realizing what it was. She told the Palm Beach Post that she decided to remove the book because it didn’t meet the library’s “selection criteria,” which is curious, since obviously the criteria was in no way used during the selection of the book.
When asked why books like the “Kama Sutra” and “Fear of Flying” were allowed to stay on shelves but not “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Schweinsberg noted that those were “written years and and became classics,” before adding that “Fifty Shades of Grey” is “not a classic.” Well, okay then, Judgy McJudgerson. More like “Fifty Shades of Bummer.”
Of course, if women are looking for more free erotica at the library they can probably just use one of the computers.
