Scrotum is a naughty word

The Higher Power of Lucky is a children's book that librarians swore to ban in their libraries. The reason for the uproar is that the word scrotum has been mentioned in the first few pages of the book: “Scrotum sounded to Lucky like something green that comes up when you have the flu and cough too much,” the book continues. “It sounded medical and secret, but also important.”

The question is, why must people be pretentious? Scrotum is as scientific as you can get, much like saying penis or vagina, so why must you go "protect" the innocent from the word? And when exactly are you gonna teach a boy about his ballsacks anyway? The dog's scrotum was bitten by a rattlesnake and on other news, stupid people can't say dick, cock or scrotum.
