ANGER OVER ‘BRAZILIAN PUBES’ BOOK
FUMING Parents have demanded publishers withdraw a GCSE textbook in UK schools as it shows a lady with a “porn star” Brazilian pubic hair wax.
The science revision book has been met with outrage from grown-ups who said it “looks like it comes straight out of a porn film”.
Publisher Pearson has been asked to withdraw the 2017 textbook after parents branded the image “seriously disturbing and disgusting”.
One Twitter fan said Pearson Edexcel were “utterly disgraceful” to have used the “landing strip” illustration in its International GCSE Human Biology textbook and “should apologise”.
One mother said: “It depicts a woman with pubic hair that looks like it comes straight out of a porn film.”
Another added on a Mumsnet forum: “It may appear trivial, but it is definitely unhealthy. This is part of the learning that gets drummed into girls about how disgusting they are, how they should be ashamed of themselves, how their discomfort is irrelevant to others.”
However, some Twitter fans appeared to defend the book.
User Big Un from Hull supported the publishers and posted: “If it was all covered in a big hairy mott, you wouldn’t be able to see the good stuff.”
