Ok - I am following your argument...until the end. So books should not be banned unless they are "legitimately way too graphic" - who should determine that? Is there a guideline that should be followed? Who sets the bar? What is "graphic" to one person, may not seem so to, how do we determine what gets banned? Also, since the argument mentions banning books that are too graphic, should this argument be on the pro side rather than the con side?

I agree with you. However, I am wondering what the difference is between having the right to choose to read the books in the library, and having to read a book for class -- is there a distinction that should be made here?
