AFA: Upset about a gay sex book in a bookstore July 15, 2008

It seems our old nemesis the AFA is at it again. This time against Barnes and Noble for the audacity to have on view in public the book “Ultimate Gay Sex”.

Then again, when I searched Amazon.com for that I saw this one, Dick: A Users Guide. I think every guy should have it gay or straight.

Anyhow maybe Mr. Howse could have taken the opportunity to explain to his young son that sexuality wasn’t just man and woman. It included man-on-man and woman-on-woman. Hell, I bet Mr. Howse watches woman-on-woman porn too.

But the point I’d like the make is that not everyone has access to Amazon.com, or a credit card for that matter. A bookstore might be the only place they can go to get more information about their sexuality.

If I’m not mistaken doesn’t B&N keep all its more adult titles in a separate area? This is a big deal over nothing if you ask me. The fact that young master Howse spotted the book “lying open” on the reading table. Maybe Master Howse saw ass and though it was something else, who knows. But I bet he’s now a master-baiter.

And as usual the AFA has it’s underwear in a bunch over it. BTW, my amazon search on “gay sex” returned 7,328 books. I don’t think we’re whispering anymore but being that this took place in Collierville, Tennessee I can’t see many outlets for young or even older men to get more information about gay sex and relationships. Banning the book from the shelves will just serve to get more misinformation out there and I think we’ve seen the error in that over and again.

Placing it behind the counter means you’d have to know the name of the publication instead of being able to browse. That’s not a solution. I’d say have an adults only area but I realize there may be some younger gay people who need that information just as much so that leads me to say leave them where they are and let people like Mr. and Master Howse get the hell over it.

n Collierville, Tennessee, recently, an 11 year-old boy named Landon Howse was walking through the Barnes & Noble bookstore when he noticed a book lying open on one of the reading area tables. His dad, Brannon Howse, was right behind him. What Landon saw were graphic pictures of two men engaged in sex. The book was titled “Ultimate Gay Sex,” and is one of the many sexually explicit books offered in Barnes & Noble stores.

Mr. Howse was obviously stunned and upset at what his young son had just been exposed to just walking through a general bookstore. When Mr. Howse complained to the store management that this kind of material should not be on the bookshelves anywhere in the store, especially a store children frequent, he was met with indifference. When he complained to law enforcement that Barnes & Noble was in violation of the Tennessee “harmful to minors” statute he was given the run around.

Since this story broke, AFA has learned that this is a serious problem in Barnes & Noble stores across the country. Many parents have written to say they have had the same type of heart wrenching experiences with their children as Barnes & Noble does not place the homosexual pornography behind the counter or even in a restricted area not open to minors. Anyone can go in and find it on the shelf. I wanted to warn parents and grandparents about this danger because this is the largest bookstore chain in America and other bookstores have similarly have no responsible policy when it comes to placing these kinds of books in theirs stores.
