Holy fucking Christ! This is funny as hell. The Guardian (01.25.10), via ThinkProgress:
"Dictionaries have been removed from classrooms in southern California schools after a parent complained about a child reading the definition for 'oral sex'."

Oral sex definition prompts dictionary ban in US schools

"'It's hard to sit and read the dictionary, but we'll be looking to find other things of a graphic nature,' (Menifee Union school) district spokeswoman Betti Cadmus told the paper."

Wonder what they think about the word "intercourse"?

Menifee is a town in Southern California, in case you cared.

Thank goodness. I was worried the kid looked up the word gender and had an identity crisis. I mean, it is the land of fruits and nuts.

"Protecting our students against a new definition of "gender", which would allow young people to define themselves as whatever sex they feel they are at the moment, despite their biological make-up."

Isn't California supposed to fall into the ocean? I've been looking forward to it.
