Anonymous asked: Ack, thank you for that anne frank post. I'm a bi Jew and like, yeah, it's cool that Anne Frank was potentially Not Straight? And like, yeah, that gives me something else to connect to her with? But she was also a young girl with dreams and her writing and internal debates and questions about humanity and like. THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO HER. (Your obsession with Titanic? I had with Anne Frank as a kid)
it’s just like??????? branding her bisexual is in error because just because someone says they like boys/girls or even alludes to the fact does not make them bisexual and even so you cannot put a label on a real life human being that she herself did not assign to her own person
furthermore, to place her queerness above her status as a jew is in err because the persecution she faced was SOLELY due to her jewish heritage and you (the collective you, not you as an anon) are basically saying that her whole experience in the annex hiding from nazi soldiers is Not As Important as a few passing lines in her diary about admiring statue’s womanly anatomy/potentially romantic feelings for a female friend like
People actually think/say that? That’s sick. A persons sexuality is their own. It is up to them whether they want to label themselves or not, whether they want to be open or not. She was a child and she went through some horrible things, so to ignore her struggle and instead be throwing out assumptions and speculations is vile! Leave her life and memory alone. Focus on your own damn lives. Stop concerning yourselves with who other people might or might not love. God, the fucking priorities some people have just baffle me.
Representation is great. Validation is wonderful. But don’t go digging into other peoples lives to find it!
