The parent on at the moment seems to be more upset about the sex scenes in the Handmaiden's Tale than the rape scenes.
They're arguing kids shouldn't read books like To Kill a Mockingbird until their over 18.
I feel like I'm taking crazy pills listening to this. I feel sorry for the parents poor kids.

In 2021 at the age of 65 and STILL single, she reluctantly opted for a legal name change instead.
In the Half Blood Prince book, we have a chapter in the initial stage called The Other Minister. It sets the stage to explain the Ministry of Magic's co-operation with the government of muggle UK.
So in July 1996, Cornelius Fudge comes to meet the British PM of the day, who if we go by the records, was John Major. The muggle PM reminisces on his first meeting with Fudge a few years back where apparently Fudge tells him that he, John Major has taken to Fudge's appearance out of the fire and his announcements of the existence of the magical world in a much better manner than John Major's predecessor.
Although in the book Fudge says that "he (the former muggle PM) tried to push me out of the window, thinking I was a hoax planted by the opposition", its pretty clear to anyone who knows a bit about politics and of the Harry Potter universe that the first time Fudge ought to have met the muggle PM would have been when he became the Minister of Magic; circa 1981 after Voldemort "died" in Godric's Hollow, and that the British PM at the time was Margaret Thatcher.
So, tldr; the Iron Lady tried to push out a big bully in the form of Cornelius Fudge out of 10 Downing Street's windows lol.
Edit: As one of the comments rightly pointed out, Fudge did not become minister of magic in 1981 as I had stated before, but upon checking the facts, I've ascertained that he ascended the post in 1990. Still, there is a good chance that Thatcher did try to push him out of her window, since she served as PM till late November 1990.
May we all piss on her grave. Amen. 🙏
I’m taking Margaret Atwood’s class on MasterClass, and in one of her lessons she talked about how a lot of people are afraid to write, and they should figure out why so they can start writing. I think I’ve identified what it is that makes me freeze when I’m at my computer. I’m afraid of the possibility that I’ll found out I don’t have what it takes, that I’ll ultimately fail at the one thing I think I’m half good at, the only thing that’s held my interest since I was a kid. This scares the hell out of me because if I can’t be good at writing, then I’m pretty much not good at anything. I have to get over this fear, but even though I’ve found it I still don’t know how.
Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Vanessa Kirby as well, but I don’t get why people hate Helena as Margaret. Sure, there was a noticeable difference in their portrayal from the get go but I feel like Helena played Margaret as how she was in that phase of her life. She played the version of Margaret you hear stories about - the innately dramatic person who’d insult anyone and wouldn’t be afraid to flip the board while playing monopoly. But at the same time she made her sympathetic and loveable, just like Vanessa did. Margaretology and Cri de Coeur were two of my favourite Margaret episodes too. I just think that even tho there were differences from Vannessa’s portrayal, that doesn’t mean she did an awful job as the whole point of the show is showing these actors at different phases of their life.
I love Jennifer Aydin from RHONJ!! She has the best one liners & I so get a kick out of her dry humor. She has an amazing husband and seems to be a great mom. I truly can’t stand Margaret and how she reacts to Jennifer. She is the epitome of haterdom. Anyone with me?
