Oh noes! Run to the media (before discussing the issue with the camp like an adult)! Rock N Roll is dangerous and pushes boundaries! Who knew?

I love Bikini Kill, but I can see some Christian mom getting pissed that her eight year old was given a tape with lyrics about underage girls wiping their cum on their parents bed or blowing carnies.

I can see where some lyrics from certain bands would be inappropriate for certain ages.

But what are the racially insensitive Bikini Kill lyrics? Don't remember any of those...

Still though, common sense would lead you to not send an 8 year old home with stuff made for teenagers. That was kinda dumb.

Maybe "WHITE BOY...DON'T LAUGH...DON'T CRY...JUST DIE!" if it's taken out of context of the song. You have to remember this happened in Portland, which seems mostly to be comprised of hippies gone yuppy and super politically correct liberals these days.
