Heather Has Two Heads
“They say two heads are better than one, but in this case I'll make an exception.”
Heather Has Two Heads is the fictional story about a little girl who suffers from dicephaly: having two heads. The book was extremely controversial, and was banned from many school libraries. Parents objected, saying that if their children see this little girl with two heads, their own kids will want to grow another head.
The story is about a little girl named Heather, who was born with two heads. Heather's favorite number is two and she sees it as a matter of great significance that she also has two cats, two iPods, and two mommies.
Each head is named Heather, and they act like sisters, except that they share a body and all the related parts.
When it's necessary to distinguish the heads, they're called Heather I and Heather II, respectively. Their personalities are similar, except for one striking difference: Heather I is on Team Jacob, while Heather II prefers team Edward.
The other kids in school tease Heather and her two heads until one day, she saves everyone in her school from dying in a fire. "Wow," said the kids in the school, "If this two-headed kid can save us from dying in a fire, then the 2-headed alternate lifestyle must be OK." Unknown to her classmates, it was Heather who set the fire.
The story ends when Heather and her two heads wins the school's annual pie-eating contest, and everyone cheers.
"If God had meant for girls to have two heads," said one prominent Christian, "He would have given men two penises."
Many people believed that if schools teach tolerance for kids with two heads, when would it end? Three heads? Four? Five? Clearly, the line has to be drawn somewhere.
