Northern Virginia continues to be a battleground between school boards and parents over what should be taught in public schools. The latest incident involves a series of books in Fairfax Public School libraries containing graphic depictions of sex between children and adults.

Stacy Langton, a mom from Fairfax County, Virginia, made headlines after she read aloud and showed images from those books, “Gender Queer” by Maia Kobabe and “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison, during a School Board meeting.

While the books have been temporarily removed from the Fairfax County Public School libraries, Langton is still concerned that a child will be permanently affected by the obscene pictures.

“You’re going to accidentally have your child stumble across this and open up. And once you see this, you can’t unsee these images,” she says.

Langton joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to talk about that School Board meeting, and the larger issue of such books being in public school libraries in the first place.
