(LifeSiteNews) – Fairfax County, Virginia, a wealthy suburb of Washington, D.C., has decided to return two previously banned homosexual pornographic books to its public high school library shelves after deciding the sexually explicit books were “valuable” for reaching “marginalized youth.”

The two books, Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe and Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison include text and illustrations that are too explicit for LifeSiteNews to share with its readers, but which Fairfax County school administrators have deemed to be fine for young teenagers to be exposed.

In addition to graphic language, the books contain nudity and illustrations of fellatio, masturbation, and sex toys.

In September the books were temporarily banned pending review after concerned parent Stacy Langton shared explicit passages and illustrations in her testimony at a Fairfax County Public School (FCPS) Board meeting.

“Both these books contain pedophilia, sex between men and boys,” explained Langton during her testimony. “One book describes a fourth grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male. The other book has detailed illustrations of a man having sex with a boy.”

“What if I told you I touched another guy’s d-ck?” said Langton, reading from Lawn Boy. “What if I told you I s-cked it? I was ten years old but it’s true.”

Langton’s testimony was interrupted by a school board member who warned that children in the audience were being exposed to the pornographic passages. She was then cut off by school board chair Stella Pekarsky.

Fairfax County doubles down on ‘aggressively grooming children’

Upon returning the book to school library bookshelves, FCPS released a statement defending the books’ “literary value” and for “supporting members of the gender-expansive community and affirming individuals in their identity.”

After the reinstatement announcement, Langton took to Twitter to condemn the move.

In a second tweet, Langton noted that the school board had ruled that the two books do not “go beyond customary limits of candor in description” of sex acts.

“Fairfax County Public Schools reaffirms its commitment to pedophilia and hard core pornography for kids,” said Twitter user Keith Appell.

“School Choice is coming,” he warned.

“‘Lawn Boy’ celebrates statutory rape,” noted Alliance Defending Freedom’s Greg Scott. “‘Gender Queer: A Memoir’ includes full-color illustrations of children performing oral sex on each other.”

In an interview with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins earlier this month, Stacy Langton explained that her sudden role as an activist shielding children from exposure to sexually explicit homosexual and pedophilic books available in school libraries is “a matter of conscience.”

“As a Christian, I realized I have a duty here before God,” Langton told Perkins. “How could I possibly stay silent?”

“I felt I had a duty and a moral obligation before God to let other parents know because I didn’t know. I had no idea that there was something of this level of … filth … in the school library,” said Langton. “We’re talking about children’s souls that are at stake.”
