Mom outraged after finding kids school book contains explicit sexual details she had to Google
A mon in Texas took a school board meeting by surprise when she chastised them for stocking a library book describing anal sex.
The outraged woman, identified as Kara Bell, took to the lectern last Wednesday to read out a racy extract from the book "Out of Darkness" leading school officials to cut her microphone.

The furious mum told the Lake Travis Independent School District board that she had plans to discuss the need for a second high school but instead spoke about the sexually explicit book in two schools' libraries.
Bell read out the passage from the book, written by Ashley Hope Perez, where it depicted "cornholing" which she said she later found out was another term for anal sex.
“Not going to lie, I had to Google ‘cornhole’ because I have the game in the back of my yard,” Bell said.
“But according to Wikipedia, ‘cornhole’ is a sexual slang vulgarism for anus."
The board meeting, which was streamed online, then hears Bell complain that she doesn't want her children to learn about "anal sex" in middle school.

"I've never had anal sex," she continued. "I don't want to have anal sex.
"I don't want my kids having anal sex. I want you to start focusing on education and not public health."
Her microphone was then cut off but that didn't stop the mom from demanding the removal of the book.
The following day, KXAN reported that the Austin-based school had removed the book from the library.
"A district possesses significant discretion to determine the content of its school libraries," a spokesperson for the district told the news station.
“A district must, however, exercise its discretion in a manner consistent with the First Amendment.
"A district may remove materials because they are pervasively vulgar or based solely upon the educational suitability of the books in question."
It is unclear how long the review of the book will take.
The 2015 novel Out of Darkness details the life of a teenage Mexican American girl and her love affair with a teenage African American boy in Texas.
It is set against the backdrop of an explosion that happened in East Texas in 1937 that killed 295 pupils and teachers.
