More parents acting crazy; Virginia school bans Anne Frank’s Diary


It’s now official; parents need to stay the fuck out of the educational system. How else are we supposed to react when one of these people gets the expanded version of Anne Frank’s diary banned for containing a short passage making reference to the vagina?

There are little folds of skin all over the place, you can hardly find it. The little hole underneath is so terribly small that I simply can’t imagine how a man can get in there, let alone how a whole baby can get out!

Originally Anne’s father had removed some of her passages from the diary, presumably out of fear that Anne’s frankness (is this considered a tasteless pun?) would be too much for students to handle. I guess he was right, since it took only one complaint for school officials to cave.

Hey, I get it; when you have kids, your brain gets a little bit rattled (in fact, during the late stages of pregnancy, a woman’s brain will temporarily shrink for a little while). It doesn’t help that these defenseless whelps need your constant attention not to die. Eventually, however, you have to accept the fact the wider world is out there for them to explore, and losing your shit every time a sexual organ is being discussed is a serious over-reaction on the part of parents with bigger hearts than brains.

Jim Allen, the director of instruction at Culpeper County public school had this to say about the situation:

“I’m happy when parents get involved with these things because it lets me know that they are really looking and have their kids’ best interest (in mind). And that’s where good parenting and good teaching comes in.”

Does good parenting involve banning books because of innocent references to private parts? How is this good teaching? It’s quite literally the opposite of that, moron.

    Goodness knows how these parents will cope when their children start asking awkward questions. These are the people who are turning their children into sexually re[pressed adults who are afraid of the human body in it’s most natural state, no wonder nudist beaches in America are struggling for survival.

    This isn’t just crazy – it’s pathetic and very dangerous.

    The Diary of Anne Frank is a document of how terrible WW2 was – and parents want it banned because of a very small passage talking plainly but not rudely about a vagina? Absolutely ridiculous. The quote from Jim Allen is wrong – he clearly does not have the aim of good teaching in mind.

    This sort of reminds me of the story about the librarian who threw out the tarzen books because she watched the movie which had Tarzan living with jane and boy and they were not married. She never read the books which are nothing like the movies.
    So here we have NOTHING mentioned in an overtly sexual way about a GOD MADE part of the body and these @^&#(@!*^!(#&*(@*& brainless schite heads are banning it!!!!
    AAAAAaaa!!! My brain is melting from the awful stupidity!!!

    And jim (the brainless moron) allen is VERY wrong!!! This is not ‘good parenting’!!!

    “good parenting” should happen AT HOME.
    “good teaching” SHOULD happen in schools.

    I guess a girl born in 1929, going through puberty IN AN ATTIC had more access to knowledge than today’s kids in Culpeper Co., VA. God save their sinful, skin-fold exploring souls.

    Worst. School. Ever.

    Self-discovery and self-inquiry is the cornerstone of good education.

    The more I listen to this bullshit, the more I want parents to have nothing to do with their children.
