Mom Calls "Anne Frank's Diary" Pornographic, Demands It Be Removed From School Curriculum

The Anne Frank Diary is 'pornographic' according to one mother who has lodged a formal complaint over the book being used in school to educate her own child.

Mom, Gail Horalek, has filed a formal complaint against her daughter's school district over its use of the Anne Frank Diary, saying that many of the passages contained in the book are way to graphic for seventh graders like her daughter.

The mother highlights one part of the book in which Frank discusses discovering her genitalia, and Horalek has said it is akin to pornography, and is completely inappropriate for her child and her schoolmates.

She has complained that Meads Mill Middle School should have asked parents to sign a permission slip before they assigned the book to the children to read, due to the content.

Right. A young woman's harrowing tale of being hunted by the Nazis is porn. There you have it - the GOP's inane Nazi references have come full circle.

1. That Mom is Just Over the Top Wrong and Backwards.

 


From the article: "Mom, Gail Horalek, has filed a formal complaint against her daughter's school district over its use of the Anne Frank Diary, saying that many of the passages contained in the book are way to[sic] graphic for seventh graders like her daughter." and "The mother highlights one part of the book in which Frank discusses discovering her genitalia, and Horalek has said it is akin to pornography, and is completely inappropriate for her child and her schoolmates."

I'd have to tell that mom that she's really out of touch with the world if she thinks her daughter hasn't already discovered her genitals by 7th grade.

2. What can one say about a country where you can ban books, but not guns?

Even though books are protected by the Bill of Rights.

3. Horalek is a fool and a lousy mom

So, Anne Frank writing about discovering her sexuality is "pornographic"? I feel sorry for Horalek's daughter.
