Waukee Northwest High School has another book containing sexually explicit messaging. The district previously decided to pull “Gender Queer” from the school library due to its vulgar content, which Google calls adult sexual content and Facebook says violates its community standards for sexual activity.
A book called “Flamer” is available at Northwest High School. This book, like “Gender Queer,” is a “graphic novel.”
The story follows a character who is at camp between middle school and high school. Here is a scene from the book:
The character is looking for Elias at camp. Elias, though, is in a tent with a couple of other campers. They tell the character they’re “takin’ care of business.”
When he asks if he can enter the tent, they tell him he is too young.
“No, I’m not!” the character says.
“Fine, but you’ll have to prove it,” Elias says.
After entering the tent, the character realizes what “takin’ care of business” means.
“We’re each busting a load into this bottle. If you don’t cum, you have to drink it! Hahahaha!”
The character then remembers how he learned about masturbation. He found a tape behind the TV while everyone else was gone.
“It was exciting to see boobs and butts. But this time, it was different. I could see…everything. People were doing things that I didn’t even know were possible, or even…allowed?
The character — who keep in mind is between middle and school and high school and found this video a couple of years ago — notes he started watching his dad’s porn “a lot.”
“Eventually, I stumbled upon… a surprise sensation.
Back at camp, the character left the tent and returned to his own. He admits it was gross and wrong, but notes he feels so excited.
