73. My neice has a "No Boys Allowed" sign on her bedroom door -

this meant to keep my nephew and his friends out of her room

I had a friend when I was a kid who had a little shed in his parents backyard that we all hung out in that had all kinds of signs on it, including one that read, "No Girls Allowed."

That is typical of children. Many girls find boys gross and many boys find girls gross. Most grow out of it, I guess.

I don't see those books as offensive. Even if I did, who the hell am I to decide for everyone in my town that they can't see, purchase or own them because I find them distasteful?

Not a good lesson for your daughter, imho.
