Housewife wins battle over kids book swear word

 

A BEST-selling children’s book is being removed from supermarket shelves after a complaint about a swearword by one shocked County Durham housewife.

 

Anne Dixon bought My Sister Jodie by former Children’s Laureate Jacqueline Wilson from her local Asda store in Stanley as a treat for her great-niece Eve Coulson.

 

The 55-year-old read the book to check it was not too sad for her "sensitive" niece and was stunned to find a four-letter word repeated several times.

 

Publishers Random House said they will now re-issue the book, which is aimed at nine to 11-year-olds.

 

The offensive word will be altered by one letter and replaced with the word "twit".

 

A spokeswoman for Asda said they are taking the book off the shelves.

 

"Since the book launched in March this year we have sold over 28,000 copies and this is the first complaint we have had," she said.

 

"Jacqueline Wilson books are extremely popular with our customers and it’s the top selling children’s books in most high street stores.

 

"The publisher is aware of the word that’s featured in the book and has agreed that its not appropriate for children and will be reprinting copies, as soon as these copies are available we will stock them in our stores.

 

"We are sorry for any upset caused."

 

 

In itself a pretty boring story until I found this;

Busybody fucktard Anne Dixon, a northern housewife with nothing better to do with her meaningless days than complain to supermarket chains about swearing in books, has managed to convince the whole ASDA chain to remove teen book "My Sister Jodie", by former children's laureate Jacqueline Wilson, from its shelves. Why, you might ask? Because it contained the word "twat".

 

The 55 year old cock-badger bought the book for her great niece, Eve. According to shit-for-brain Dixon, Eve is a girl of "sensitive" disposition, so the book needed to be strictly vetted before the gift was exchanged. The censorious Pentagenerian was shocked to see an accurate 4-letter description of herself repeated several times over in the text - and returned it to her local ASDA in Stanley, County Durham. The spineless cunts at ASDA Co. Durham assured Ms Dixon they would remove the book from their shelves immediately.

 

"I do not think I should have to explain to a nine-year-old what this word means," queef Dixon said when asked by reporters - despite the fact that the nine-year-old in question both has a twat of her own, and another giving her books. “I would like [Wilson] to explain how she would want me to explain this to my daughter," the dried-up cum-stain added. That's simple Anne, just point to yourself.

 

Now the whole ASDA chain has followed suit - effectively censoring a whole edition of the text. Publishers of the book, Random House, have responded by changing the offending word from "twat" to "twit" in the new edition.

 

Although ASDA believe that children will be terribly corrupted by a simple string of letters and sounds that happens to have been fetishised by society - they don't seem to think they will be corrupted by violence and intolerance. At time of writing, the are still stocking "We Love Passover" - a book that celebrates and justifies the ethnic genocide of innocent Eygptian children, aimed at 4-7 year olds.

 

They are also stocking the Children's Bible (5 years and upwards), which contains multiple genocides, fratricide, torture, incest, rape, animal mutilation, human sacrifice, sex, pornography and brutal wars. All of which, apparently, is good for kids - despite having fucked up more people and started more wars than the word "twat".

 

But hey, don't let the facts get in the way of a good censor. So I give you Anne Dixon and ASDA, cunts of the week.

The "Great" British Public!! TM :rolleyes: It's fucking pathetic how everyone caves in to the whinging pricks in society, the customer is NOT always right, in fact they're almost exclusively wrong when it comes to stuff like this. Take some fucking responsibility for fuck's sake and stop trying to blame someone else for all the things you don't like about society. Also, I love the way that these twats always seem to think that they'd have to explain what the word means to the kid, like they don't already know!?! And if they do actually have the most mollycoddled brat in the country for a kid, then why don't they just do what they must always have done and shelter them from reality and lie? Tell them it means butterfly or daisy or whatever the fuck you think might not be too scary for the little darling, you fucking cock!!

That can be dangerous though indi. It was years before I found out that my dad wasn't actually "washing his face" with the woman next door's sponge. In fact, imagine my horror when I found out it wasn't even a "sponge" at all!

Think people are missing the point here...the real censor is ASDA. As if the fact that one of the world's biggest supermarkets is now acting as censor isn't scary enough on its own, the fact such a mighty giant crumbles at the squeak of one jumped-up prude from Co Durham I even scarier, tbh.

You can tell just by looking at her that she's a total twat.

You have to wonder why twat would be in a book for 9 year olds though. It might be commonly used in indi's house, if so I can see why he's outraged  at what he considers acceptable verbage, but it's probably not used in front of most kids of that age. Not to say they won't hear it but you have to wonder why it's in the book in the first place.

Any kid reading ANY book is a good thing, and to censor what they can and can't read is a travesty.

 

The rich tapestry of swear words in the English language is part of it's beauty.  In lots of other languages you don't have the huge range of of moderate to hugely offensive words we enjoy.  If a parent wants to censor their own child's reading, all power to them, for them to censor my child's is not on.

 

As Shakespeare said "When a gentlemen is disposed to swear, it is not for any standers-by to curtail his oaths."

What does that word mean anyway?

 

I asked me mam but she said she'd tell me when I'm older  :-[

 

I was told it was a pregnant fish?

My guess is that it's not being used to mean a woman's sexual organs, but rather, as my copy of the OED says, to refer to an "unpleasant or stupid person", hence why they're going to change it to "twit".

 

Why do these prudes always see outrageous filth in everything? My guess is that they all closet perverts and they see what they want to see then feel guilty about it, but are too repressed to express it in any other way than by anger, and as always people are way too pathetic to feel anger at themselves, so they project it onto others.

 

I was using the word twat in all sorts of ways when I was a kid, none of them meant what this filthy minded old tart would assume it to mean.

 

eg: Twat - To hit with force. "Nice one mate, you twatted that one"

 

Or whatever...
