What's WGN-TV's Definition of 'Somewhat Racy'?

September 2nd, 2012 6:36 PM

Last night on WGN-TV's News at Nine program, anchor Jackie Bange began a story:

A guidance counselor at Rich Central High School in south suburban Olympia Fields is on administrative leave after publishing a somewhat racy book he wrote that focuses on sex and women.

What constitutes somewhat racy at the station calling itself "Chicago's Very Own"?  Part of the answer is in an article appearing on the Chicago Sun-Times's Web site.  Written by Casey Toner, it reports on Bryan Craig's book titled "It's Her Fault."  Some excerpts:

“The easiest kill for a man is through the young lady with low self-esteem,” Craig wrote in the book. “Of course some will feel this is taking advantage, and yes it is. The ultimate goal for a man is to do all he can to eventually be able to commit and submit to a woman’s power.”
All men and women should be sexually promiscuous before getting married, Craig wrote. He describes in graphic detail what he perceives to be the difference in the color and texture of vaginas of women from various races and ethnicities. Based on his observations, he espouses his theory about “why Latin women have more children.”

And later:

“From that moment forward, I vowed to never be put in that situation, and to mind-f--- every woman I could,” Craig wrote.
He then describes a method that allows women to juggle five different partners at once. He describes the strategy as “the A through E:” your admirer, your ultimate admirer, your counselor, your sexual release, your ideal.
In the final chapter, Craig encourages readers to enter the “wonderful world of submissiveness.”

 If all this is only somewhat racy, I can only wonder what "Chicago's Very Own" considers racy.   Or maybe there's no such thing.
