Texas State Rep. Jeff Cason Calls for Removal of Porn From School Libraries - Texas Scorecard

As news surfaces around the state that a sexually explicit graphic novel entitled “Gender Queer” by Mala Kobabe can be found in school libraries, State Rep. Jeff Cason (R–Bedford) is calling for its removal, as well as potential criminal charges on schools that approved the distribution of the pornographic material to students. 

According to Cason, “this book touches on subjects that are not appropriate for school libraries and may even be criminal for its representation of minors participating in sexual activities.”

School curriculum has recently become a battleground, as parents seek to protect their children from the woke influence of educators in the public school system. 

Cason is calling upon Attorney General Ken Paxton to “start a statewide investigation into this book and others that may violate the Penal Code in relation to pornography, child pornography and decency laws, as well as the legal ramifications to school districts that approved of these types of books.” 

Most school district websites mention that a goal of the district is to keep students safe from harm. Recently, however, they are the ones harming the students in their care with explicit material. 

Cason referenced a suggested book list compiled by State Rep. Matt Krause (R–Fort Worth) for investigation. The list includes books on a multitude of hot topics, including transgenderism, police violence, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQIA+, and abortion.
