At top, Anchorage father Jay McDonald testifies at the Feb. 7 Anchorage School Board meeting as Board President Margo Bellamy and Board Member Pat Higgins watch online.

The Anchorage School District has no business giving minor children books that tell them how to have anal sex and create their own online porn.

This is the message that concerned father and local educational advocate, Jay McDonald, tried to relay to the Anchorage School Board before they voted 5-2 to silence him at the Feb. 7 meeting.

McDonald was the only person to speak during the period set aside for public comments. He began by acknowledging the high priority the school board has placed on advancing “diversity, inclusion and equity.”

“We don’t often see specific examples of what diversity, inclusion and equity looks like, though,” he told the board. “So, today I brough an excellent representation. This is like the archetype of diversity, inclusion, equity material – this was one of the books that was recently purchased for the libraries.”

The book in question, “Let’s Talk About It,” is currently available through school libraries at Bartlett High School and Romig Middle School.

McDonald began his three-minute testimony by reading from one of the book’s chapters dealing with “sexting.”

“So, before you start sending your naughty masterpieces around the world, take some time to get friendly with photo editing software and apps,” he read. “Digital photos are permanent, and impossible to retract once they’re out there, so keep your recognizable features out of them, before you share them.”

Before continuing, McDonald paused to emphasize that the book was targeted specifically to children.

“Crop out your face, hide your birthmarks and scars, and edit out your piercings and tattoos, and don’t forget to tell your sweety how hot they look,” McDonald read. “Let them know you appreciate the little gift they’ve sent you.”

At this point, he was stopped by School Board Vice-President Carl Jacobs, who was running the meeting.

“I’m going to interrupt you at this point,” Jacobs said. “It sounds like you have a concern about a book. I’d be glad to get you connected to the superintendent and their team to go through the appropriate process.”

McDonald responded, “I’d appreciate it if you don’t interrupt my time.”

“Mr. McDonald, I’ve asked you to defer to the superintendent and their team,” Jacobs warned. “If you have a concern about a book, we have a procedure and a process and a team ready to assist you.”

The lone conservative on the board, Dave Donley, then spoke up in favor of letting McDonald continue his testimony.

“I don’t think he has violated any rules,” Donley noted. “He hasn’t shown any pornography. He hasn’t used bad words.”

Without ever acknowledging Donley’s points, Jacobs told Donley that he could attempt to overrule his decision.

Donley called for an override vote, but it failed 5-2. Board Member Andy Holleman was the only person to vote with Donley in favor of letting McDonald finish his testimony.

Jacobs then told McDonald that he could use his remaining comment time, if he had something else to talk about.

McDonald proceeded to challenge the school board’s decision to cut him off for simply reading from a book that the district uses in educating Anchorage children.

“There are still purchase orders out for these books,” he claimed. “Like, they’re not old things that were just put on the shelves to rot.”

McDonald then defended his First Amendment right to address elected school board members by simply reading a few short excerpts from a book which is approved by the district.

“I don’t understand how it’s appropriate for kids, and it’s not appropriate for the school board,” he said. “It feels a lot like you don’t want parents to be seeing what’s being given to the kids … You’re happy to give these books to kids. It seems like you’re terrified to give them to parents, and I think it’s an absolute travesty that you cut off my time and don’t even let me have my three minutes. I think you’re breaking your own rules. Thank you.”

Anchorage father, Jay McDonald, objected to a book on anal sex that is currently available to children in Anchorage School District libraries.

A few minutes later, McDonald posted a 16-minute Facebook video from inside his car, detailing why the book was inappropriate for children. The video had been viewed more than 13,000 times in 19 hours.

“It’s got a whole chapter on sexting, and they’re not telling kids, don’t do it,” he said. “They’re encouraging them to edit their photos. To remove identifying characteristics before sending their naked nudes out on the internet.”

“This is what we got in middle schools,” he added.

McDonald then proceeded to read from a chapter entitled, “What are kinks, fantasies, and porn?”

“A great place to research fantasies and kinks safely is on the internet!,” the book states. “There are tons of people and communities out there who share your interests and have all kinds of advice. The online world is also chockablock full of pornography; professionals and amateurs alike sharing their sexy adventures online. When consumed right, porn can help you discover new aspects of your sexuality and help you safely explore kinks and fantasies.”

McDonald noted that book then instructs children to be sure and research their favorite porn stars to make sure they aren’t producing illegal content.

“Look up interviews with your fave porn performers, go to sites they recommend, and pay for your porn,” the book states.

Graphic illustrations of sexual acts and positions are printed throughout the pages, along with comments that say “…there’s nothing wrong with enjoying some porn; it’s a fun sugary treat…”

McDonald highlighted another section of the book that encourages children to explore anal sex.

“Both practical and pleasurable, this tight flexible hole serves two purposes!” the book assert. “This is the entrance to your bowels, the passageway for getting food waste (poop) outta your body. The opening is ALSO chock-full of sensitive nerves, making it a primo erogenous zone for touching and penetrating.”

Feb. 7 was not the first time McDonald has read from objectionable books purchased and provided for Anchorage students.

The past October he was cut off after reading from “This Book is Gay,” by James Dawson. It details “boy on boy sex,” masturbation and much more. It is still currently listed as “available” for checkout at Bartlett High School.

Overall, the Anchorage School District library website includes dozens upon dozens of books that introduce children to gay sex, porn, gender and sexuality experimentation and more.

“Are we educating or are we promoting here?,” McDonald said in his recent Facebook video. “When they say they promote comprehensive sex education, this is what they’re talking about.”

    It appears that Anchorage has,.. over time, .. devolved to the far leftist agendas of Commiefornia.. Note:.. Not All of California fits that description … But in the long run, it is a virus , more infectious than COVID, with extremely detrimental consequences for the families.. There is a Vax, but we can’t discuss that.

  • steve says:

    Can we all agree that everything the leftist Democratic touch turns to crap? They have their black hearts, and I don’t mean race, set on destroying the culture of this country. And if you ask them why they don’t know. A person once told me, “Your thoughts don’t come from you, but what you do with them does reflect on the person you are”.

    • Carl Handratty says:

      Am I really the only one that sees these people look like child predators? Look at that guy with the beard, he just looks like a chomo. I would bet he likes little boys.

  • Mary says:

    And the Anchorage School Board wants to take your PFD to improve education in their schools. ☹️

  • Mary says:

    Mr Mc Donald go after their bond. “BONDS FOR THE WIN.”

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    The first person to indict here is governor dunleavy! No executive orders, children being groomed for pedophilia in the school system! Next,parents get your children out of that mentally deranged system! Next church leaders with nothing to say! I’m being disciplined in my response but God knows the anger and prayers for the demise of the wicked who oversee this garbage!

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Places around the nation are firing the school board members and electing new ones. Anchorage needs to fire the school board members. Or, as Mary stated, go after their bonds – even they even have one!

  • Chuck Anziulewicz says:

    By the time kids graduate from high school, roughly half of them have engaged in some kind of sexual activity. Some of that is anal intercourse, which kids assume will not result in pregnacy. Burying your head in the sand about this is just dumb. And calling this an “ANAL SEX BOOK” just because anal sex is mentioned little more than fear-mongering.

    • Sammy says:

      that area of the body was designed to push things out. not for putting things in. doing so destroys the structure over time and that’s why adult diapers are used more among men doing so than little old ladies with incontinence . it’s a real statistic, look it up.

      • ABetterfriendofHumanity says:

        Kinda like we’re only given lungs so we can smoke, right? Don’t be an idiot. If God didn’t want you to put things in your bum he wouldn’t have made it feel so good, lol. According to the CDC/WHO, a majority of straight couples surveyed said they engage in anal play at least occasionally. It’s not even a ‘gay’ thing. The only human organ with more nerve endings than the anus is the vagina. The book is 100% correct. You going to say the vagina was only designed to push things out?!

        And you are right that repeatedly abusing ANY part of the body can cause damage over time. So maybe, just Maybe explaining how to engage in such play PROPERLY has some educational value? Explaining how condoms work, what kind of lube is safe/unsafe, what STDs may or may not be a risk depending on their choices, how to properly clean their orifices. The ‘lets talk about it’ book is extra thoughtful. It even teaches people to affirm each others bodies and to show appreciation to their partners, ie not just objectifying them.

        And lets be clear here, NONE of this is about grooming children. If you can’t compartmentalize the idea of your teenagers learning about sex education without imagining all the gays in town lined up trying to rape them, then YOU are the sickos with mental problems. Nobody supports friggin pedos! Gee, maybe you should read the chapter of the book that explains what ‘consent’ is to learn more?! These educational books are meant to go ALONG with your own teaching. If you have concerns about something in the book, TALK about it with your teenager and explain why. If they ask you a question about the book, give them good and true advice like you are supposed to! Read the book yourself before you give that paranoid dad’s opinion any weight at all. Hes so far off base its scary. Constantly imagining a pedophile on the other side of every message his kid ever sends. It’s disturbing.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        “ABetterfriendofHumanity,” you are no friend of humanity. You are a friend of the devil himself.

      • LittleCindyLooWho says:

        Friend of Humanity, the universe as we know it is Billions of years old. Dinosaurs held dominion of the earth some 65 million years ago. Humans have only been around for a few thousand years. According to the Bible, all that happened and only 6 days passed for God. Some time on the 6th day, humans were created and then Lucifer rebelled. My point is that for Billions of years, Lucifer was Gods most righteous and favorite Angel. On the biblical scale, God kicked Lucifer out of the house only yesterday…and he hasn’t even woken up from his afternoon siesta on the 7th day yet. So in a billion years or so, when day 8 gets here…maybe they’ll just make up? You and I and everyone are but specks of stardust in the grand scheme of things.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        LittleCindyLooWho, where is your previous comment? What conversation are you basing this comment to me on?
        As for your history of the world, I don’t believe that the world is billions of years old. As for the Almighty Creator Yahweh’s relationship with Lucifer, I am not going to dwell on that.

        I am so interested in this website! It’s fascinating in one way and extremely simple in the other. The first is science, and the second is Christianity.

  • JM Farthing says:

    What we have here is a gross criminal and perverted misconduct by everyone of these leftist members, the ASD leadership, and some of the teachers who are the main groomers… all responsible for child porn, grooming, and sexual abuse… all of them should have charges filed against them, be arrested, and the books removed as evidence of pedophilia.
    To all who support this… you are sick in the head and heart and your vileness is putrid and abominable.
    You can not get more depraved and evil as a human then to promote infanticide, pedophilia, and self mutilation as “health care” and “normal”.

  • Dee Cee says:

    The vote to overrule the objection FAILED 5-2.
    That’s why EVERYONE needs to get out and stump for Rachel Ries and Anthony Cox for school board! Please donate your time and talents to these two amazing, conservative school board candidates!

  • J888 says:

    This is so evil and disgusting!!! What is wrong with these people??!! I can see satan is totally controlling their hearts and minds! I’m going to have to look up the author of this disgust and vile reading material.

  • Steve Peterson says:

    They want your tax money and your PFD do they can continue to groom your children into deviants.

  • Snow Tanned says:

    It’s time to financially incentivize kids for checking out these books, turning them into a central place, so we can stack them up and have a big bonfire. Pay the kid handsomely, enough for the fine from the district when they’re not returned. Good investment.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Snow Tanned, this is supposed to be a heart if you can’t tell: <3 Love your idea! Lol

    • Cindy says:

      Interesting plan. So…bribe children into committing fraud so that you, the parent, can destroy government property in the exact same way the nazis did? And so the state can order another crate of the same books. Brilliant!

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Well, the demon-controlled Nazis here in the US sure have been burning up a lot of things for no good reason, haven’t they Cindy?

      • Cindy says:

        My post was sarcasm. The person I responded to was attempting to incite criminal activity. Thats not a good thing. There is nothing wrong with these books. The material is appropriate for late-middle schoolers and high school students, many of whom are ALREADY having sex, and virtually all of whom have long since started consuming pornography and masturbating. That goes for your kids too. You should get them books exactly like this so they can learn how to protect themselves.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Cindy, my post was not sarcasm. The satanically-driven left is tricking children into doing things that are against the Almighty Creator Yahweh’s wishes and commandments – just like Lucifer tricked Eve into eating from the tree in the middle of the garden. Humanity-loving people are waking up and will protect the children. A book-burning would be nice, but you are correct, it would not be right. However, if everyone checks out those books and never returns them and just pay the fine…..

  • Akdale says:

    pretty sure the book is in Palmer library folks…..

  • Sharon says:

    Parents check out your schools new books. Every school could be ordering these same two books! I saw this on Facebook after it was posted so I shared it. It definitely is GROOMING!! It tell the kids to take inappropriate pictures to text to adults then tells the kids about many inappropriate things!! Teach these kids the things they need to educate them, not to be victims for adults!!

  • Sammy Adams says:

    For some reason there is no “reply” tab on “abetterfriendofhumanity”, so I will do so here. Occassional anal sex is one thing, gay anal sex is another. The constant use of that area destroys it, simple biology. And is it true or not that gays have way more sex on average than heteros? So it stands to reason that that area gets destroyed in a relatively short amount of time considering. The adult diaper sales prove the point. I did not say anything about the vagina, so not sure why you brought it up. Stick to the subject at hand. The rest of your comment is not in reply to mine, you should have put it separately.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Sammy, you can hit the “reply” button under your name and then address the comment to whomever you are addressing. What a sicko to use my name by adding to it. Definitely not a better anything!

    • BetterFriendofHumanity says:

      Yeah the reply button seems to shows up for some people but not others.

      You are gonna have a hard time proving there is a correlation between being gay and buying adult diapers, lol. This discussion is literally the first time I heard anyone ever suggested such nonsense. The cells i side the sphincter are among the most resilient in the entire human body. Just like the cells in your mouth and throat, they are squamous cells that are thin and layered and they reproduce very quickly because they are used to abrasions and being scratched by food passing through your digestive tract. If you ever wondered how long it takes to return to ‘normal’ after vigorous use, its about 2-3 days. Proper care and cleanliness, using the proper lube, and proper ‘topping’ can reduce that to less than a day. Keep in mind only about half of gay couples even engage in anal sex regularly. Most of us don’t like playing with dirty holes.

    • HumanitysBestFriend says:

      Some gay guys are promiscuous, just like some straight guys are promiscuous. Only about half of gay men even engage in anal sex regulary. There are plenty of bottoms that rarely get laid because tops are rare. Your sex advice is way off. It takes 2-3 days for your rear to ‘heal’ after vigorous use. But if you take the proper steps, use the right lube, and your top knows what hes doing, then it can cause no more damage than a vagina sustains during intercourse. During both vaginal and anal sex, the friction and stretching causes micro-tears. It’s similar to what happens to your muscles when you use them. The cells in the anus regenerate very quickly. You would have to cause a LOT of damage on a regular basis to cause any permanent damage.

      • Sarah Zimmerman says:

        I think that this book is for parents that are not Christian. Honestly, and it’s hard to say on a comment on a website, It’s just tough to watch people believe in freedom of religion and then say that their religion should be law. We broke free from Britain in order to be able to practice our own beliefs and try democracy!

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        I am glad that you like my name so much.

  • Prunella Scales says:

    I’ve never seen so many people afraid of books! When have any of you ever been hurt by a book? How did you all learn about “the birds and the bees”? If you don’t like a book, don’t read it. If you don’t want your kid to read a book, take responsibility for that yourself. There’s no reason for one prudish individual (or 100) to dictate what other people can read.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      I do not think that we are “afraid” of the book. Just as our Heavenly Father abhors such things, we abhor such things. Our children need to be protected and we have a responsibility to our Heavenly Father to raise up the children he gifted to us in a manner that is pleasing to him. Letting our children look at this porn would not be pleasing to our Heavenly Father.

  • mhs says:

    I can’t believe this is even a debate. Both sides declair they care about childrens welfare. If that is true then both sides should acknowledge that these books should be removed immediately. Children, including teens, do not have the emotional maturity to process sexual relationships. If people were really concerned about the well being of the school children they would be teaching them to focus on learning skills and developing hobbies. Learning ways to be happy and productive. Teaching them to avoid sex until they are older and wiser. Those of you pushing for this clearly have no real knowledge of child developement and if you do then shame on you.

  • DanoNerka says:

    thanks for speaking up Mr. McDonald – more power to you! The kids can’t read, spell or do mcuh math but they need to learn how to have anal sex and sext on their phones – with pitiful lack of warnings of the real dangers. These books could be in public libraries but there is just no good reason to have them in school libraries.

  • Bob Logan says:

    I suppose it’s good news then that the government school kids can’t read.

  • MaximusFriendofHumanity says:

    In reality, this book was never available for ASD students to check out. If you go into the book’s record it says: Shelf Location at West/Romig (850); Collection: PROFESSION; That is not a school library collection, it’s part of a professional development collection restricted to school staff. Don’t believe me? Search for it yourself: Do a search in the k-12 search box for the title. It should come up first in the list. Click on the link, and then “All copies” to see where it’s available. Mr. McDonald didn’t even get his copy from the ASD, and he didn’t follow the school districts long established process for challenging a book. As a parent to a son now in his early 20s, I can say that despite all of our parental efforts, he was learning about everything in this books from friends and the Internet anyway, and in ways that included lots of dangerous misinformation. If they’re going to do it, wouldn’t you rather they learn how to be safe about it?
