Anne Frank Diary Pornographic, Mom Claims in Middle School Complaint

by at . Comments

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.

It only sounds porographic because people have dirty minds and make it that way. Human anatomy is a part of life, and while it is described in a bit more detail than I remember reading, they are still only body parts, get over it!

As a sidenote, the reason it is more detailed than you remember is that that particular passage was just recently added back in.

We read "Number the Stars" not Anne Franks diary never even knew it had anything like that in it I wouldn't have wanted to read that as a middle schooler ...school was bad enough with health class without having to discuss that in English class as well

Look we all have read the Diary of Anne Frank for probably close to 40 or better yrs I read it on and off through middle school and high school. This book should not be taken off the shelves I remember that my middle school/ jr high teacher had read us another book about the Holocust with 2 sisters . I just think that this parent has issues and are afraid of what could happen now or in the near future. This was a sad situation with people that may have had family members in the Holocust. Our children need to be told what happened to others it is called HISTORY!!!!! And people get over it!!!!

Actually, it is the teacher's job to explain WHATEVER topic that comes up. The neat thing about language arts is that the teacher is a jack-of-all-trades of sorts, because literature covers a wide scope of subjects. Literature is art, and the purpose of the arts is to help us understand and cope with the struggles in our life, among other things. Now, stand back and let the professionals do their job, please.
