I wasn’t going to say anything about the posts that have been circulating around the internet saying that Anne Frank was bisexual but they still keep showing up. So:
We have no idea whether or not Anne Frank was bisexual. Anne Frank died in a concentration camp when she was a child. We don’t know how she identified. We don’t know how she would have grown up to identify. We don’t know how she would have grown up to conceptualize her childhood attraction to women—whether it was fleeting, whether it was important, whether it was part of her self-concept.
As an adult, I can say that I was a bisexual child. But it would be INFURIATING for someone to read my childhood diary and make that determination for me. It is INFURIATING that people are posthumously assigning a sexual identity to a murdered child. The entitlement to exercising control over Anne Frank’s narrative is INFURIATING.
This post was rushed and I wanna go back and clarify that by “people” exercising control over Anne Frank’s narrative, I mean “white non-Jewish people” (NB I am also white + non-Jewish) who seem to be the overwhelming majority of people doing this.
I am also super available to talk about this more (online or off) with people who still don’t understand why it’s wrong to claim that Anne Frank was definitively bisexual. I think that assigning sexual labels to Jewish child holocaust victims is extremely damaging and antisemitic, so if there is any way I can convince you to not do that, I would really like to!

new number one most annoying comment to find about something harmful, besides “pc gone mad!”: “it’s satire!”
i just saw this gifset w/ quotes from End of Evangelion and someone put “eva was really dumb and a lot of “points” they make here are wrong hahahahahaHAHAA” and then op basically replied with a “who th fook asked u”
but i did think some of those quotes were wank (which is fitting cos that was the first .gif HEYOOOOO)
like “Humanity is probably the only creature capable of hating its own kind”
im about 90% certain that’s not strictly true
"The fate of destruction is also the joy of rebirth"
what the fuck does this even mean. i got an a* in english lit in secondary school and i cant parse it. like i can sort of understand it if you take the “also” out but ?????
my eva experience is basically like “the only winning move is not to play”
who the heck is Susser Todd?
it’s german for “sweet todd”
he must be a really nice guy then if people think he’s sweet
come over here, sweet todd, we enjoy your company a lot. that’s what that song is about. solved it.
that Let It Go/ambiguous crossover is pretty apt i spose because Let it Go talks about having to conceal your true self and put a face on and ambiguous starts with the frustration of someone annoyed by the fact there’s this one person who always manages to see through their put-up front
I was going to apologize for making “another one of those” posts; but then I remembered how many of those “feel sorry for cis people!!” comics there are and how they have SO MUCH MORE notes than informative and trans sympathetic posts so. I’m not apologizing for this.
- singular “they” is grammatically correct, no matter what your high school english teacher says
- don’t be afraid to question your own gender identity and don’t let people guilt trip you about it (additionally, being nb and not minding gendered pronouns is an acceptable comfort)
- why you should respect people’s pronouns and identities (and not be a rude asswipe about it)
- re: hate and social justice | re: generalizing oppressors and social justice
- the trans housing network !
- some good points if you’re cis
- "but none of my trans / queer / any other oppressed group is mean to me in real life, it’s just mean people on tumblr!"
- penises and vaginas and chromosomes have nothing to do with gender fyi
- there’s no such thing as being “trans enough”
- protect transwomen at all costs
- petition to legally recognized nonbinary genders
