An enraged mother showed up at a school board meeting that was supposed to be concerning finance and COVID, but instead changed the subject to anal sex.
During what was expected to be a boring board meeting in Lake Travis Independent School District about finances and the district’s response to coronavirus, local mother Kara Bell stood up to speak about a sexually explicit book found in the schools’ libraries.
Instead of just ranting about the book, Bell took it one step further, reading a racy excerpt from the novel, which was found on the shelf of a middle school library. If children were going to be subjected to the material from this book, the school board has to hear it too.
Bell was rightfully angry that the 2015 novel “Out of Darkness” by Ashley Hope Pérez, depicted “cornholing,” which she later discovered was a euphemism for anal sex.

“Not going to lie, I had to Google ‘cornhole’ because I have the game in my backyard,” Bell stated.
“But according to Wikipedia, ‘cornhole’ is a sexual slang vulgarism for anus,” she continued. “In verb form ‘to cornhole,’ which came into usage in the 1930s, means to have anal sex. I do not want my children to learn about anal sex in middle school.”
Despite her microphone being turned off, the enraged mother did not stop her plea for the school district to remove the sexually explicit book from the libraries of Hudson Bend Middle School and Bee Cave Middle School.
“I’ve never had anal sex. I don’t want to have anal sex. I don’t want my kids having anal sex,” she said.
“I want you to start focusing on education and not public health,” Bell added.
According to reporting from Austin news outlet KXAN, the Lake Travis Independent School District has since pulled the book from its school libraries thanks to the enraged mother’s complaint.
“A district possesses significant discretion to determine the content of its school libraries,” a spokesperson told KXAN. “A district must, however, exercise its discretion in a manner consistent with the First Amendment.”
