Banned Books Week 2019

Here we are again. It’s that time of year when we build our TBR piles against the better judgement of those who wish to censor literature and control thoughts. Yes, Banned Books Week takes place again next week! But before the week is upon us, let’s pause the book shopping for a moment to look…

It’s not a banned book but the Diary of Anne Frank was censored for the longest time because Anne talked about her genitals in a few chapters.

I guess a diary which is supposed to be a PRIVATE written collection of memories belonging to the writer should be SFW now?

If I had a diary, firstly I wouldn’t want it to be published and if it was why would you censor my writing?

That’s just disrespectful.
