Yep, reading books like “Harry Potter, LOTR, GoT, The Hunger Games” which “contain deeply insensitive and addictive material” and “encourages difficult behaviour” can “cause brain damage in children” — at least that’s what a principal, who stands for the “old-fashioned values of traditional literature”, of a British school says!
The principal, Graeme Whiting — who is probably just bitter because he never got his Hogwarts acceptance letter — recently published a baffling blog post, claiming children should need a “special license” to buy such fantasy books
In the blog post titled “The Imagination of the Child“, the grumpy headmaster also went off on the irresponsible mothers who let their children corrupt their minds with these books with “pictorial covers that hide the sometimes demonic, influential and unacceptable words that may lie within the text”, saying:
While that was the headmaster being strangely unbelievable who thinks that imagination of children should be caged and not allowed exposure to anything modern, an Egyptian official recently claimed that Tom and Jerry — not ISIS or dictators — are responsible for the rise of violence and extremism in the Middle East
As reported by Egyptian Streets‘ Mohamed Khairat, the Head of Egypt’s State Information Service (SIS), Ambassador Salah Abdel Sadek, during a speech at a conference called “The Media and the Culture of Violence” at Cairo University, told the audience:
“[Tom and Jerry] portrays the violence in a funny manner and sends the message that, yes, I can hit him … and I can blow him up with explosives. It becomes set in [the viewer’s] mind that this is natural.”Youm7 published an article titled “Five Accusations Tom and Jerry Faces in Egypt”, which claimed that the cartoon teaches children about negative habits, such as drinking alcohol, smoking, and stealing.
Well, if you grew up reading those fantasy books and watched Tom and Jerry, chances are you are either a crazy person or a terrorist :/
