(no subject)

In case you hadn't already heard, NZ has banned a book.

Well, it's temporarily banned while they work out what to do with it.

Apparently it contains references to sex and drug use, along with offensive language, and some Christian group (that also is big into Right to Life while lobbying to be able to bash up their kids) thinks that this might damage the poor wee darlings' psyches or something.

Did I mention the book won an award a couple of years ago for young adult fiction?

Anyway, I went and bought it on Kindle.  And I'm happy to lend it to people because fuckem.
