For once, I’ll express my disagreement through my post.
Some months ago, I saw a post on social media about a collection of rewritten children stories, but for adult only.
I found the covers quite beautiful and put them in my wishlist. Those books (snow white, red hood, etc) are clearly for adults. They are trash, violent, could content pornography, horror, gore, it can go pretty bad.
One book of the serie is actually in the news, but sadly in a pretty bad way. Without going into details (Google has them anyway), I wanted to express my support to the author. I am strongly against censorship, and even more in this specific case.
It also makes me think a lot about the fairness of the decision that has been taken so far : justice arrest an author for one page out of 270, because of one person complaining. Ok.
Then, Today, I read that the Pope declined cardinal Barbarin’s quitting request while he has been found guilty of having hidden what he knew about the sexyal harassment on children from his colleagues...The guy is still working, and they want to keep him...
Last but not least, if a book like that one get censored for sure, then we might think about burning all of the Sade’s books. 120 days of Sodom is a disgusting one that is considered as a classic in French literature...just a wtf example.
