In an impressive expansion of the term ‘pornographic,’ a Northville, Michigan woman, Gail Horalek asked that Anne Frank: The Diary Of A Young Girl (The Definitive Edition) be removed from the school’s curriculum because: ‘It’s pretty graphic, and it’s pretty pornographic for seventh-grade boys and girls to be reading. It’s inappropriate for a teacher to be giving this material out to the kids when its really the parents’ job to give the students this information.” The passages that she’s dubbed “pornographic’ are actually more anatomical, given that they discuss Frank attempting to learn more about her own body, than they are ‘designed to arouse lust,’ the conventional meaning of pornographic.
