Price tag for 'mere exposure to lesbian book' now hovering around $20K

by Jeremy Hooper

1573440884.01. Sclzzzzzzz Aa240 A Bentonville, Arkansas man is trying to sue the city for $20,000 simply because his two teenage sons found a book called The Whole Lesbian Sex Book on the shelf of their local public library. Earl Adams claims that his 14 and 16 year old boys were disturbed by the book, which led to "many sleepless nights."

Ironic, considering that "many sleepless nights" would actually seem to be the goal for the lesbians who read and learn from the book.

Most, however, seem to agree that the lawsuit is without merit and that the public library has every legal right to keep the book on its shelves (which are meant to provide offerings for the whole public, lesbians included). That being the case, we hear Mr. Adams is considering moving on to a new money-making scheme: Suing his remote control for corrupting his family's channel surfing experience by choosing to display an episode "The L Word"
