Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

Ex-Porn Star Reads to School Kids

Former porn star Sasha Grey took her talents a less adult audience by visiting Emerson Elementary School and reading a book to students, which caused the school to receive several complaints and at first deny Grey’s visit, TMZ reported.

“We have several celebrities who read to our students each year,” a spokesperson for the school told TMZ. “The actress you indicated was not present.”

But photographs uncovered by the entertainment website and a tweet by the actress told a different story.

“Spent the am with Read Across America Compton, reading to the sweetest 1st and 3rd grade students @ Emerson Elementary,” Grey tweeted.

A spokesperson for Read Across America told ABCNews.com that Gray was not affiliated with the program.

Grey responded to the backlash from her visit Friday by telling the entertainment site: “I believe education is a universal right. I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent.”

The ex-porn star, who made her last adult film two years ago, most recently appeared on the television series “Entourage” playing herself.

She wasn't talking to the kids about her "porn days", was she?!  Either way, once you decide to walk down that path, you should never be allowed to be around children or have your own children.  You forfeit that right when you make those decisions.

No, she wasn't talking to the kids about her "porn days" (as far as we know) but what is the point of bringing that sort of "celebrity" into an elementary school? What purpose does it serve? There is an overall agenda in our schools to sexualize children: from the recent lowering of the age of consent in California to 12 to indoctrination in so called "sex ed" classes to so called "homosexual history" classes. This is just another, no so subtle, way of promoting the sexualization of children but also the decriminalization of pedophelia. We see this trend all over the country and not just in California.

     If this, supposedly, reformed porn star wants to turn away from that lifestyle choice and raise their own children i think that is fine but this has brought the issue into a more public sphere and there is no evidence that this is an attempt to have a positive effect on children. Sexualizing children is clearly child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of minors. The so called "Progressive" agenda is more concerned about destabalizing our society than it is about doing what is best for children.
