Dragon Ball Manga is Hard Core Porn in the Eyes of Teachers.

Why won’t anyone think of the children?


This whole complication started when a fourth grader borrowed the first volume of the Dragon Ball manga from the Pittsville Elementary and Middle School’s library. The boy’s mother somehow found out that this book had nudity and sexual content in it, and the shit hit the fan from there. (My guess is that he asked if it was ok to use her balls as a pillow, ala. Goku) She went to the student council, and had some kind of sick show-and-tell of all the inappropriate content found in the manga.

“In cartoon format, it depicts nudity, sexual contact between children and sexual innuendo among adults and children," said Joe Holloway to the rest of the council. He also added that, “the drawings and story lines are disgusting.” John Federicksen, Wicomico School’s Superintendent responded, "I'd say it's coming off the shelves as soon as I can get a phone call back to the office.” He also goes on to explain that the graphic novel are an accepted genre to the school because they appeal to children who do not like to read regular books.

First of all, right on the back of this book it states that this manga is for 13+ individuals, not necessarily something for an elementary school library; though isn’t really too out of place either. The nudity, and “sexual” talk that occurs in the first volume has nothing to actually do with hardcore porn, or even sexual teasing debauchery, but more along the lines of comedy. Seriously, we are talking about Goku here. Your five-year-old son knows more about sex than Goku does at the age of 30 (I still to this day don’t know how Gohan or Goten was conceived, maybe he was sleeping at the time?)

If you are so worried about children learning about sex at a young age, why don’t you just ban every book in the library that has both men and women together on the same page? You know something’s terribly wrong when Dragon Ball is kicked out of anywhere because of it’s sexual content.

This shows how ignorant some folks can be with looking at the content to what they think is something decent for their kids and it's kind of laughable the school didn't take the time to look through the content of the manga before having it in their elementary school library.

These people really don't know what porn is and they haven't seen nothing yet.  Dragonball is soooo tame in the sex department.  Big fawkin' deal, I'll give these people massive overdoses of hentai and that will give them something to really talk about.  It will certainly ruffle their feathers and piss on their parade.
