An 11-year-old student mortified parents and the internet across the national landscape as he read passages from a school librarian’s suggested graphic novel out loud to his corrupt school board. The boy is drawing praise for his maturity and for his courage to take on the leftist machine that is increasingly being seen as destroying the innocence of childhood with disturbing regularity.
The boy, Knox Zajac, read passages from the early pages of the teen romance “Nick and Charlie,” and full disclosure, it’s difficult to read as an adult. It’s all the more troubling to read it knowing that this was intentionally written and shared for young audiences.
“Knox Zajac, an 11–year-old sixth grader, spoke up at a school board meeting last week to read aloud from the illustrated romance for teenagers, “Nick and Charlie,” that he had checked out of his school’s library. The story begins with two early teen boys stealing wine from their parents and proceeding to experiment s*xually with one another,” captioned a user on Twitter who shared a video of the speech.

Passages from the book read like the literal captions of an adult late-night movie.
“…[b]efore I finish my sentence, he’s pulling off my T shirt. laughing when I can’t do his shirt buttons, he’s undoing my belt, I’m reaching into his bedside drawer for a condom. We’re kissing. Again, we’re rolling over, obviously, you can see where this is going. I don’t know if it’s because we’re feeling especially emotional or just tired,” Zajac reads from the book.
He continued: “Or this past couple of weeks, I’ve been too much. But this reminds me so much of the first time we had s*x, we were both f*cking terrified. And the whole thing was kind of terrible. I didn’t know what we were doing. But it was good, too. So good. Because we were a mess of emotions. And we were scared and excited and everything felt new. So this sort of thing, to sort of feels like that. Nick touches me like that any minute.”
There is no way around the fact that this is 100% inappropriate and disgusting and that the people who places graphic content like this in the hands of young people belong behind bars. If a stranger read something like this aloud to a random child at a park or shopping mall, they’d be arrested on the spot. But suddenly when a “teacher” distributes this material to minors they are brave and bold for allegedly expanding the worldview and promoting tolerance.
After the boy finished, his father stepped up to the microphone and pout the entire board on blast and on notice.
“So that’s my son is 11 years old, and went to his library and found that by the entry door of our library, this is the schmuck that he is finding,” he said. “All right, I don’t care whether it’s gay, straight, bisexual, whatever the terms are, for all this stuff, doesn’t need to be at our school doesn’t need to be at my 11 year olds library.”
The father continued: “We do not need to be having literature that’s showing boys how to suck d*ck. All right, this is a very, very frustrated about it okay. And you may think that schools know the best for our children. You know, we know the best for our children, the parents. If you remember this, I was here last year talking about masks, and I even offered you proper usage for a mask and you said I was bullying.”
“Like I said, listen to the parents. I can tell you right now, I don’t work anymore. And I will be more than happy to focus my time and effort to the security of my child and children in the school. All right, I will be a thorn in your sides. So I just want you to be aware of what you’ve woken. Okay. I’m sure that a lot of you guys are fine and great. People have nothing but the best intentions for our children. But by the four months for a school to get this book out of the library is ridiculous. The parents are here right now and they’re speaking and you need to listen and do something about it quickly,” he finished.
