You wouldn’t suppose that the Harry Potter sequence is a controversial group of books, however, apparently, it actually fucking is and to this point, it stays one of many books college libraries within the US have probably the most bother stocking as a result of mother and father preserve complaining about it.
There are a number of key complaints dipshit mother and father use to attempt to get the e book banned and as you’d count on, all of them are extremely silly.

Here’s the place issues get actually miserable although, the Harry Potter sequence topped this record for 9 years straight, that means folks have been bitterly complaining about children studying the Harry Potter sequence for longer than the span of time by which the books happen. All as a result of they’re caught within the perception that that e book promotes evil, the occult or the advantages of being a wizard, when in actuality everyone knows the complete sequence is an allegory for baby abuse.
