A New York City Public School principal is defending a sexually explicit novel remaining in the middle school library and told a concerned parent that the school has no plans to remove this book that details sex acts.

Booker T. Washington Middle School principal Elana Elster admitted in an e-mail shared by popular account “Libs of TikTok,” that the novel, “This Book is Gay,” was indeed in the middle school library and that it would remain there to let children explore “new and different” ideas, as well as “expand their horizons.” 

“This Book is Gay” discusses orgies, kinks and sex apps. The book includes detailed information on how to have anal and “girl on girl” sex, Fox News Digital first reported.

“NYC middle school principal confirms in an email that the school offers the pornographic book ‘This Book is Gay’ and have no plans of removing it. The book teaches kids about gay sex and encourages the use of sex apps. This is what they’re giving 12 yr olds to read,” Libs of TikTok wrote with screenshots of the email and graphic images from the book.

One passage in the book talks about dildos and says “Let’s talk about dildos: I think a lot of people assume that where there is no penis, a desperate sexual void is created, out of which something [bleep] shaped must ultimately slot in order to satisfy. I’ve only every slept with two women who enjoyed using dildos. I hate wearing a strap-on. I’ve only every done it once and NEVER AGAIN!”

Libs of TikTok shared a page of the book that features a diagram illustration of a naked “boy.” The diagram is described as a “rough guide” that explains which “parts feel nice when you touch them.”

In an email to the concerned parent the principal suggests that the parent is sheltering their child from “new and different” ideas by objecting to the book.

“When you say you are ‘at war everyday,’ I am wondering if you are referring to the exposure your child is getting to people and ideas that are new and different. This is a public school and the children will be continuously exposed. It doesn’t mean that they will have to agree with everything they are learning or seeing. In fact, they will be taught to question, analyze, expand their horizons,” the e-mail reads.

The American Library Association lists Juno Dawson’s book as the ninth most challenged book in 2021 for “providing sexual education and LGBTQIA+ content.”

Neither the New York City Department nor the principal responded to a request for comment, Fox News Digital reported.
