15 People Who Think J.K. Rowling’s Racy New Book Has Ruined Their Childhood

The Harry Potter author’s new book for adults, The Casual Vacancy, includes sex scenes and a lot of curse words. In other words: CHILDHOOD = RUINED.

J.K. Rowling has graduated (for now, at least!) from writing books intended for kids, which means, obviously, that your childhood is finished.


Sex scenes??? It can’t be!


The narrator of your childhood is talking about balls and erections.


JK Rowling writing about a teenager's balls with great sang froid. Nooo my childhood #thecasualballs #spoilers

JK Rowling's use of 'fucker' in her new book is like a big slap to my childhood..

Barely 30 pages in & J.K. Rowling has already used the words, 'fucker', 'shit', 'cunt', 'tits' & 'erection'. D: MY INNOCENCE. MY CHILDHOOD.

Childhood has been RIPPED AWAY.


J.K Rowling using the word 'fuck' and 'cunt' is odd. My childhood has been ripped away from.
