Shakespeare is too obscene for Amurrican children
Our deepest apologies, children, for our education system seems to have failed your parents.
We concealed this parent’s identity to protect her daugther who is reading the book in an 8th grade Honors English Class.
Honestly, I think you concealed that parent’s identity to prevent her daughter from facepalming until her skull cracks.
“Another parent says this isn’t the Romeo and Juliet he remembers in Middle School.”
Then, good sir, your professors weren’t teaching it well. Or you were stoned during the entire class.
“The teachers assured me that they would not read the book any longer. They would go back to the original Shakespeare.”
That is the original Shakespeare, you dumbass.
*facepalm* *headdesk* *skullwall*
THEY’RE READING THE ORIGINAL SHAKESPEARE BUT THEY STILL HAVE THE BOOK
It — the sex is all there, it’s just in euphemisms. I don’t — how are you — what even I can’t —
I can’t even. I have lost the ability to can.
I immediately wanted to write an email to the link they provide, but I can’t even organize my flailing and ranty thoughts enough to compose a post about it. I just…it’s SHAKESPEARE! It’s not the Romeo and Juliet you remember? It’s the ORIGINAL TEXT with a side-along page of paraphrasing. I can’t. I just can’t.
PS: Someone needs to email this video to Professor Catherine Burroughs.
kill me right now.
Yes, there’s sex but, god, there’s so much more to it, too.
I can’t even get upset about this. It’s just too funny.
Some people are too stupid for their own good.
