MPAA Gives "Perks of Being a Wallflower" PG-13 Rating

Emma Watson's upcoming film "Perks of Being a Wallflower," has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA. The MPAA had previously given the film an R rating, but this has since been changed:

Originally, the Classification and Rating Administration assigned the movie, which stars Emma Watson and Paul Rudd, an R based on "teen drug and alcohol use, and some sexual references." The appeals board switched that to PG-13 "for mature thematic material, drug and alcohol use, sexual content including references, and a fight - all involving teens."
The movie is about 15-year-old high school freshman Charlie, played by Logan Lerman, who is taken under the wings of two seniors while he copes with his first love, played by Watson, the suicide of his best friend and his own mental illness.

CAN’T WAIT TO WATCH IT! Emma Watson AND Logan Lerman! Agh, this would be amazing! PG-13 seems reasonable, WAY more reasonable than R. (:

I’ve read the Perks of Being a Wallflower and I wouldn’t say that it was an R. And I think that the bits that are that rating can easily be taken out and should be, because it is a very good story wish should be able to be enjoyed by people of a less contained age group. That’s just my opinion.

YES! Can’t wait! I was upset that it was rated R before, but now that it’s PG-13, I was wondering, is there just sexual references, or actual sexual content? Does anyone know? Also, when does it come out?
I’m SO excited to see Emma’s new project!
