Just Another OC Homeless Guy: But the other people taking those positions often are such obvious assholes - or at least act/sound like obvious douchemeisters - that I have a knee-jerk reaction against anything that dribbles in chunks out of their mouths.


Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Lots of libbie poutrage in this thread.


If you think about this really really hard, maybe you'll get a glimmer of understanding about why so many here on Fark don't take you seriously in any way.

But probably not

I have a dream. A dream that one day... whenever someone opens their mouth to say something so incredible... so completely *wrong*... that everyone around them will immediately drop what they're doing and start hurling their fists at them. Silently, without a word or pause.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: I know it's considered rather silly to have any concern for the rights and preferences of sexually-repressed Christians, but since it is a public school (meaning her tax dollars help pay for it) then her desires in the matter should be considered.

/Libbies: Good taste? Good taste?  We don't need no stinkin' good taste!


I don't get to decide precisely how my other tax dollars are used.  Why should education be different?  Considering we have a public interest in sexually aware and educated people, why should the vagaries of crazy or ill-informed parents be in any way incorporated into our educational system?

You don't like what public school is teaching your kids?  Home-school them.  Public school should be based on what's best for our children and our society, not what makes their parents happy.

SheltemDragon: lack of warmth: So I guess asking the school to use the Diary of Anne Frank (play version) would be just ridiculous.  That is what I read back in school and never thought I was left in the dark about any part of the story.  I guess you don't get the true picture of the fear and nasty nature of hiding from the nazis unless you read about the persons personal writings about their own genitals.  There must be a point there about not knowing the full story unless the person telling it describes their genitals to you.  That's okay, if reading about someone's personal thoughts about sexual discovery is what you need to understand a family hiding from the nazis then read on.

/not everything in a diary should be made public
//just not good taste

As a historian I have rather firmly disagree. If your pursuing Anne Frank's diary as a historical document then *any* editing or censorship to it is a travesty. I've not read it, but simply having those passages in their show that even in the face of overwhelming danger that the normal preoccupations of adolescent self discovery applied, and allows you to compare it against historical norms of the time.

I'm firmly of the opinion that we need to be teaching students how to do history right in High School, that the discipline isn't memorizing facts and dates (you can look those up), but being able to reference information, draw out conclusions and detect biases in information. Then the students should be able to extrapolate, and employ the information to form, their own, conclusions and be able to defend those conclusions by citation and reasoning.

Any violation of the document degrades the ability of the students to do so, and there for is wrong.


I agree with you.

I also -- maybe because I was once an adolescent girl -- can't help wondering how mortified Anne Frank would have been, had she known her private thoughts about her dawning sexuality would one day be made public. And that her own father would read them.

But you're right.

Yes, it is terrible what that book does to people... i had a friend once who read it in 7:th grade; now he's stuck in a terrible sex addiction involving drugs and alcohol. Plus a strange attraction to poorly described texts of vaginas...

But really, a 7:th grader should be able to read this book without really caring that much. Either the child understands - which probably means it has heard it before and probably isn't affected - or it doesn't - which probably means it hasn't read the bible thoroughly.

Really?  You don't think that a couple of paragraphs about a teen undergoing puberty helps a pubescent reader relate to the author?  You don't think that it gives a deeper understanding about what frame of mind Anne was in and how she had to cope with the same things that all teens have to cope with only under very adverse conditions?  Should her relationship with Peter have been excised from the book as well?  After all, it was very personal and had little to do with the Holocaust.

In fact, if you think that The Diary of Anne Frank is about the Holocaust, you really need to reread it.  It isn't.  It's the story of a girl coming of age.  Doesn't matter if it is set in Amsterdam or Beijing, WWII or 1776.

It is the story of a girl becoming a woman.

Basically it is "Are You The God?  It's Me, Margaret" only with less menstruation, more Nazis, and set entirely in an attic.

So it's really more like
" let us decide cuz we read {the Good Book } the way we want to and that reading sez we can throw shade and shame, and whoever we decide we don't likes, they can haz hell or rape or torture or death, 'cause we sez God sez so, whether it's gurls who dress sexy or gays, or chubbies or Joos who cant haz Jesus, we will make sure to include you in who we bashes"

It seems that fundamentalist versions of religion exist to drive people apart more than bring them together, to give a pilgrim something to hate, someone to fight, to give some megamouth someone to rail against. Just another way to stir the pot and add more heinous crap to the world.

We need to advance our ethics, etiquette and sense as fast as our technology, that's what your interpretation of the Divine says to me.

It makes me sad, becaue we all should know that Madame Curie's House For Imaginary Friends could totally beat the the Shirt-Tails, Smurfs or Snorks in a  100-cubit foot race 8 ways to Sunday but we'll never see that till the Hebrews win the SuperBox. And till that day  I'm just gonna pout and flip you off from Fort KickAss.

Professor Farksworth: Wasn't Michigan the same place some harpy biatched about Married With Children as well?

What the fark Michigan?


These people do not represent Michigan. We're a blue state and generally middle-of-the-road or liberal up here. We have Detroit and Ann Arbor. We're practically Canadians (but without health care and bagged milk).

But when you get into the "thumb" area, the western side of the state, and in some of the podunk towns in the middle/north of the state, and you find a lot of uptight religious assholes who try to spoil it for the rest of us. We also have our share of hicks who get all their information from the wrong sources. Get further into the thumb area and you find the really crazy cabin-dwelling people who believe that reptilians, UFOs, Bigfoot, and the Illuminati are out to get them.

I guess when people are more isolated (and the thumb and upstate areas are very isolated) they end up getting a little crazy and paranoid.

Bugerz: Too_many_Brians: Yeah, my mom was that harpy for the small Christian school my brothers and sister went to.  She was able to get any positive mention of the Greeks out of the curriculum due to them ALL being pederasts. She also tried to get Shakespeare out because he was a foul mouthed pervert, but the English teachers fought back. Finally a stalemate with a minimal, edited amount was allowed.

When I went to public school for a year she also freaked out when the Spanish teacher had us take home translation worksheets with vampires on them. My mom saw those and thought that I was being taken in by the occult.

Good times, good times.

I am worried about the mother not reading the literature her duaghter does. I mean, this is a classic of the 20th century canon, not some R.L. Stein knockoff. the mother is only declaring her own incredible ignorance. I am saddened to think that nobody will confront her for being unliterate, and absolve the school because there is no reason to think parents would be unaware of that particular book's content.

911Jenny and desertfool: it's not your memory failing you, I am 2 yr younger than jenny, and I never read those parts of the diary either. we read edited versions, Anne Franks relatives who published her diary felt that those passages were too personal for publication, as they knew her as the young girl she was (think about it, would you want to publish the portions of your daughters/nieces/sisters/cousins diary where she describes her self discovery for all the world to see. I wouldn't.) As new family members inherited the diary, they felt that restoring those segments would not only be truer to her life, but also would show the historical importance that in the face of politically motivated horrors, life went on in ways that can't be stopped. there was a fark link in the last couple months that was about the re-release of the diary with the removed portions left in place and unedited.

BTW I don't remember that part of Lord of the Flies, oh yeah, I do, but didn't give two shiats at the time, but when I saw titties in the 60's film of Romeo and Juliet I was totally stoked about it.
