Can Anne Frank rest in peace? Apparently not.
First Justin Bieber clowns around in her hiding place in Amsterdam and signs the visitors’ book hoping she would have been a Belieber. Um, not. (I already wrote about this pea brain).
And now, the mother of a seventh grader in Michigan is claiming that unedited version of The Diary of Anne Frank is too graphic for the tender sensibilities of her daughter and her classmates, weaned as they are on a steady diet of YouTube twerking, sexting, and smut.
“It’s pretty graphic, and it’s pretty pornographic for seventh-grade boys and girls to be reading,” Gail Horalek told reporters at Detroit-based Fox 2. “It’s inappropriate for a teacher to be giving this material out to the kids when it’s really the parents’ job to give the students this information.”
The passage in question Anne writing simply about the anatomy of her genitals. It is about as pornographic as a wave hitting the sand.
Guess who’s got a dirty mind, reading sexual content into pure anatomical description?
And if anything is pornographic about Anne Frank, her family, and everyone else murdered by the Nazis, it’s what was done to her.
I thought about that yesterday when I posted the RIP for Deanna Durbin, so beloved by Anne that Deanna’s photo was put up on the wall.
Gail needs to get over it.
