When will people learn: you don't burn books?


Clare Phillipson, director of the Wearside Women In Need, has called on people to burn copies of the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, claiming it is degrading towards women and encourages sexual violence.

Perhaps Ms Phillipson has never heard of Heinrich Heine and his famous quote, but that is still no excuse for burning books. Of course we should all discourage violence against women, but this is not the way.
