Not challanged for showing a naked boy prancing around, but for not figleafing his private parts. Even The Little Mermaid doesn't show a vulva or female nipples. --Ed Poor Talk 14:45, 13 July 2012 (EDT)
- I've made several improvements to this article. (1) Sendak's best known book (by far!) is Where the Wild Things Are. An absolute classic of children's literature. (2) It's well documented that he hid his homosexuality to avoid upsetting his parents. (3) Yes, he was Jewish, but I've moved that fact to the end; the important thing about Sendak is that he was a wonderful writer of children's books. StaceyT 19:52, 13 July 2012 (EDT)
Wow, you guys have dirty minds. It's a children's book for goodness sake. Cmurphynz 23:27, 5 November 2012 (EST)
Uncategorized bias on Wikipedia nomination.
Sorry for addressing it on this article, but this site for some reason locks talk pages at the same time as when regular pages are locked:
Anyways, I think we should address how Wikipedia is suppressing information about Maurice Sendak's planning to assassinate George W. Bush back when he had been in office on Examples of Bias in Wikipedia: General or uncategorized. Aside from one editor trying to add it in and failing, I tried to add in this information myself, but they pretty much removed my edits pointing out this fact as well. When I addressed that it was not a joke, they claimed that he was joking around simply because of laughter being in the background and that the source I used (Breitbart) was part of a right-wing conspiracy to hurt the credibility of a famous children's book author. Here's the section if you don't believe me: "Talk:Maurice Sendak#That line was not a joke." on Wikipedia. Pokeria1 12:03, 6 July 2013 (EDT)
