Virginia mom Stacy Langton showed some pornographic pictures
Video of a Virginia mother confronting her local school board over pornographic material has gone viral after she read graphic text aloud and displayed shocking images.
The clip shows Stacey Langton, a mother of six whose two eldest children attend Fairfax High School, explaining for the first time during her speech at the Fairfax County Public School Board meeting on Wednesday night that other school districts across the country After seeing stories about some pornographic books in the U.S., she decided to check the titles at her children’s school.
Sure enough, Langton was able to check out two books she’d seen as opposed to other parents—”Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Avison and “Gender Queer: A Memoir” by Mya Kobabe at the Fairfax High School Library. .
“Both of these books involve pedophilia,” Langton told the board. “Sex between men and boys … One book describes a fourth-grade boy having oral sex on an adult male. The second book has a detailed depiction of a man having sex with a boy.”

Langton maintained the graphic illustrations and began reading excerpts from the books for members of the school board to see. Then, members of the school board interrupted the mother, one telling her, “There are kids in the audience here.”
“Don’t interrupt my time,” replied Langton as the board began calling for the next speaker.
The crowd behind Langton then stood up and applauded as she remained in the lecture and tried to end her speech. As soon as the mother was approached and told that her time to speak was over, the crowd started shouting at the school board, “Go to jail!” Before Langton told board members they were in violation of Virginia law and “should be charged accordingly” for allowing minors to view pornography.
The footage was recorded by Asra Nomani of Parents’ Defending Education Sanstha.

Langton told Granthshala News that her younger four children attend private schools, but she and her husband decided to send their two older children to high school in a public school. She said it was “totally shocking” and “totally unacceptable” for children to find these materials, with the added insult that their tax dollars are paying for it.
“We’re not talking Playboy here,” she said. “We’re not talking about Pamela Anderson lying naked by a pool.”
“I’m not one of those proactive moms or dissatisfied moms,” Langton said. “It’s not about being anti-gay, anti-trans or whatever. I would be there and every single word I said would be said if it was a depiction of a heterosexual couple with heterosexual acts – pornography is pornography, And I don’t care what the gender is. And by the way, it’s even worse that pornography involves children. It takes it to another level of evil.”
The mother’s voice seems to have had some effect.
Fairfax County Public Schools told Granthshala News on Friday that both books that Langton opposed at the meeting would be “suspended with immediate effect.”
The district said in a statement, “FCPS is in the process of convening two committees composed of staff, students and parents, led by our Library Services Coordinator, to assess the suitability of both texts for inclusion in our high school libraries.” ” “The committee’s recommendations will be placed before the superintendent of assistant instructional services who will make a final decision on whether FCPS continues to provide access to these books in our high school libraries.”
Langton told Granthshala News that the school system has a shared library system, meaning that middle school students also had access to the books he described.
