SAVAGE: 11 Yr-Old Roasts School Board Over Library Book About Sex

February 27th, 2023 2:30 PM

While I wish the kid wasn't exposed to such a graphic book, I think his point was heard. 

Knox Zijac, an 11-year-old student at Windham Middle School in Maine, read a page from the book “Nick and Charlie” about a gay couple having sex. The book was a featured novel on display in his middle school library. 

The child, “still at a tender-enough age that he mispronounced ‘library’ without the final ‘r,’” as The Blaze reported, read every single word exactly as it was written, swears and graphic content included, certainly not because he wanted to but instead because that was the only way to get the school board to care even a little about what the heck was being distributed to kids in schools. 

“My back over my hips as I ask if we should take our clothes off,” Zijac began reading. “He’s undoing my belt, I’m reaching into his bedside drawer for a condom. We’re kissing, again rolling over, obviously you can see where this is going.” 

Yep, we can. But Zijac continued, to read the disturbing content to which he had access. 

“But this reminds me so much of the first time we had sex. We were both f**king terrified and the whole thing was kind of terrible because we didn’t know what we were doing, but it was good too, so good.”

The child then proceeded to explain that when he checked the book out from the library to show his dad, the librarian not only asked him if he wanted more but also asked if he wanted a graphic novel version. 

The school board's reaction was discomfort and shock.

Zijac’s father then finished off the remaining three-minute allotment of time. “This is the smut that he is finding,” Mr. Zijac began. "I don’t care whether it’s gay, straight, bisexual, whatever the terms are for all this stuff, doesn’t need to be at our school, doesn’t need to be at my 11-year-old’s library.”

The dad also brought up the book “Gender Queer” that’s been circulating school libraries as well as discussion in school boards across the nation. “This is bullshit,” he said. “We do not need to be having literature that’s showing boys how to suck dick.” 

At the end of the clip the father said what we’ve been advocating for since day one. 

“You may think that schools know the best for our children. You know who know the best for our children? The parents.”
