This just in: educators aren't put away in packing peanuts whenever they're not around your kids.

English teacher writes racy novels, parents with nothing better to do lose their minds.

Smart Bitches, Trashy Books is predictably awesome.

I agree with SB, TB: for once, it's worth it to read the comments on a news article.  Wow, a grown-ass woman writes about, meaning that she thinks about, sex.  She doesn't bring it into the school.  She doesn't promote it to minors.  (However much I think that it's willful obtuseness not to realize that teenagers think about sex.)  If you're going to excoriate her for this, then you have to do the exact same for every single biological parent with a student attending that school. They're not just thinking about sex, they're giving tangible proof that they've had it.

There are also things to be said when it comes to why a woman writing about sex is being deviant, but if a man were to write about violence he would be an exalted local author.  However, others have said them better, so for now I won't.  What I will do is choke down my reaction to Mays' fairly ridiculous Kindle prices and give the lady some business.
