Anne Frank Diary Pornographic, Mom Claims in Middle School Complaint

Is The Diary of Anne Frank pornographic?

One mother in Northville, Mich., believes so and even went so far as to file formal complaint with her child's middle school, according to local news reports.

The following passage from the The Definitive Edition of the Diary of a Young Girl is the main reason why the mom is so outraged by the famous work:

Diary of Anne Frank Cover

"Until I was 11 or 12, I didn't realize there was a second set of labia on the inside, since you couldn't see them. What's even funnier is that I thought urine came out of the clitoris."

"When you're standing up, all you see from the front is hair."

"Between your legs there are two soft, cushiony things, also covered with hair, which press together when you're standing, so you can't see what's inside."

"They separate when you sit down and they're very red and quite fleshy on the inside. In the upper part, between the outer labia, there's a fold of skin that, on second thought, looks like a kind of blister."

"That's the clitoris."

Because of this, the woman wants the book yanked from the curriculum, but insists this "doesn’t mean my child is sheltered" or she lives in a bubble.

“If they watch any kind of movie with a swear word in it, I have to sign a permission slip,” Horalek adds, believing she should have had that option here.

The Northville School District said in response that there is a committee in place to review such complaints and it will do so at the appropriate time.

This is not the first time the The Diary of Anne Frank has drawn harsh criticism from parents because of its passages that are explicit about sexuality.

Furthermore, some say it is simply too depressing for students.

Anne Frank died in March 1945 in a concentration camp and posthumously became perhaps the most famous victim of the Holocaust through her diary.

The only good thing to come out of this heated school debate? The Justin Bieber Anne Frank Museum guest book controversy seems tame by comparison.


At faculty we get the most total of food. At your house we don't get this much. At your house my mom tells us to only consume a bit so there is certainly adequate for everybody, she says.


This mother is an idiot to think that those passages are pornographic. It is simply just a young girl discovering her body. It's a human body, for Christ's sake-- everyone will learn and find a way to understand it during times in their lives and it should not matter what ages that happens. It's completely innocent, natural and not in the slightest bit sexualized.


instead of demonstrating how to put a rubber on a cucumber? Perhaps there should be a demo about how deep a vagina is? Maybe take an oscar mayer hotdog and yes throw it down the school hall way to demonstrate vaginas!

@ re: sex ed in schools

You are obviously one of the idiot assholes who don't take life too seriously. Yeah, you're one of those bastards that don't realize and haven't been taught that the vagina much like the penis, comes in different shapes, sizes and yes gentle scents also! These are the real things that should be fucking taught in schools. Our children need to be taught about relationships...the good ones! And the real reason why wars get started in the first place, and whose really behind them, our kids need to be taught alot of what's going on in this messed up world. And get me wrong, I'm sure there's a place for trigonometry, but there is also an even bigger issue going on in this,world and it's called apathy. And I see it every time I see the news and hear of a bomb going off or when another kid walks into a school and decided to kill instead of tell somebody he's got a's apathy. We are the lost generation.


OMG in a world where children are getting their labias probably shot off by an automatic shot gun in sunday school. I'm sure when hundreds of rounds of ammo are getting poured into these children their private parts are being spared! So---please let us leave the bull some place else. This is reality and so was Ann Frank. It is time for children to learn faster because of computers or oneday some computer freak may lore your " innocent" baby away from you! It is a dog eat dog world and getting worse and you are worried about poor sweet Ann:(


Why in the year 2013 are there still prudes? In a day and age where violence is glorified,why not celebrate a young woman who was learning about her body. It shows that she was a young girl who lives and had the foresight to document her very frightening Abd yet extraordinary life. How is any of that pornographic?


“If they watch any kind of movie with a swear word in it, I have to sign a permission slip,” Horalek adds, believing she should have had that option here. Clitoris and labia are curse words? Somebody better tell that to the authors of anatomy books.


ofcourse, this is what happens when "The Michael Jackson Story" drives you mad?


what Vincent replied I am stunned that anybody able to earn $5507 in 4 weeks on the internet. did you look at this web page




People are such prudes that it's apparently taboo to discuss human anatomy with 10-14 year olds who are going through puberty and discovering sexuality themselves. If I were that kid and my parents reacted this way to a book, that would only drive me to check it out from the library in secret. As a teen, books were a very contoversial subject in my household, and I spent the years of my adolescence secretly reading books that my conservative father and stepmother did not want me reading.
