Claiming that a substitute teacher showed the R-rated “Brokeback Mountain” in class, a 12-year-old Chicago girl’s family has filed suit claiming she suffered psychological distress from watching male cowboys (OK, shepherds) have sex with each other. The girl and her grandparents are seeking more than $400,000 in damages. That’s a lot of trauma.
Can any adult conclude that that movie is appropriate for 12-year-olds? If so, are there any movies that are not appropriate for 12-year-olds? (I await lefties and their listings of any patriotic-themed movie.)
