Rainbow Parties

Michelle Malkin has published a column reviewing a new book that is supposedly written for pre-teens and young teens. it is called "rainbow party" here is a excerpt from her column that will explain it:..........Here's a rich irony: I'm writing today about a new children's book, but I can't describe the plot in a family newspaper without warning you first that it is entirely inappropriate for children.
The book is "Rainbow Party" by juvenile fiction author Paul Ruditis. The publisher is Simon Pulse, a kiddie lit division of the esteemed Simon & Schuster. The cover of the book features the title spelled out in fun, Crayola-bright font. Beneath the title is an illustrated array of lipsticks in bold colors.

The main characters in the book are high school sophomores supposedly typical 14- and 15-year-olds with names such as "Gin" and "Sandy." The book opens with these two girls shopping for lipstick at the mall in advance of a special party. The girls banter as they hunt for lipsticks in every color of the rainbow:

"Okay, we've got red, orange, and purple," Gin said. "Now we just need yellow, green, and blue."
"Don't forget indigo," Sandy said as she scanned the row of lipstick tubes.
"What are you talking about?"
"Indigo," Sandy repeated as if that explained everything. "You know. ROY G. BIV. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet."
"That's seven lipsticks. Only six girls are coming. We don't need it."

What kind of party do you imagine they might be organizing? Perhaps a makeover party? With moms and daughters sharing their best beauty secrets and bonding in the process?

Alas, no. No parents are invited to this get-together. A "rainbow party," you see, is a gathering of boys and girls for the purpose of engaging in group oral sex. Each girl wears a different colored lipstick and leaves a mark on each boy. At night's end, the boys proudly sport their own cosmetically-sealed rainbow you-know-where bringing a whole new meaning to the concept of "party favors." .... This attempt at sexualizing young America is something I predicted long before I created my blog. When president Bill Clinton announced to the world that oral sex doesn't count as real sex, I knew eventually that idea would filter down and become a problem for parents, having to explain to their children that the president lied, which presents a moral dilemma. On one hand you are supposed to trust your president to do the moral and right things but on the other hand you don't want your daughter engaging in group oral sex. Thanks Mr president. To save your own hide you have corrupted and endangered an entire generation. I hope you are proud of yourself.

We still don't have a president that will tell the truth. Do you think that he was influenced by Clinton, too?
