‘It has happened again. A library book readily available to minors across Iowa has been flagged for its content by Big Tech.
Nobody would consider Google or Facebook “far-right book burners” or “conservative book banners.” Yet Google and Facebook clearly are not comfortable with the content of the books.
Google flagged images of “Gender Queer” and now “Let’s Talk About It” for containing adult sexual content. Yet librarians, educators and Democrats support these books containing adult sexual content being in libraries. These books are in the “teen” section as well.
Google’s ruling on “Let’s Talk About It” comes even though images from the book were edited by The Iowa Standard.
Facebook restricted another individual’s account for posting photos from the book “Let’s Talk About It” because the photos violate Facebook’s community standards on sexual activity.
So, the obvious question — if these books are too sexual for Google and Facebook, why are they accessible to minors in Iowa libraries?’https://theiowastandard.com/google-flags-lets-talk-about-it-library-book-as-adult-sexual-content/
