Girls warned playing didgeridoo could cause infertility

The Victorian Aboriginal Education Association has called for the The Australian edition of The Daring Book for Girls to be pulped because it teaches girls how to play the didgeridoo. The organization says women who play the instrument will be cursed with infertility.

"We know very clearly that there's a range of consequences for a female touching a didgeridoo -- infertility would be the start of it, ranging to other consequences," he said, adding: "I won't even let my daughter touch one."
