Current Montana State Law Allows Pornography for Students (Minors): Via Schools/Libraries/Museums


If you read the black highlighted text below you can see clearly where students (minors) are allowed to view perverse content of sexually explicit materials via in “accordance with policies approved by the governing body of the library or museum” and “policies approved by the governing body of the institution.”

Many parents have no clue this is allowed in schools and libraries.

We do know that “approved by the governing body” of such institutions can be quite subjective meaning they can simply choose whatever content they FEEL is right. The book ‘Gender Queer’ which is bombarding schools and libraries across the country and which minors have access to is just one example of the filth (and dangerous content) that minors can obtain.
