Brutally: Should I get rid of my dog if my boyfriend hates it? He told me not to get rid of my dog but feel like the little guy deserves a loving home.

He left the bed and stopped cuddling whenever ex. entered the room And when the ex. escalated to hitting me the dog slowly stood up and moved towards us: he got in between. Submissively. He put his big body in front of me, to be hit instead of me.

A guy I was considering dating came to visit me one day, and Tonto wanted NOTHING to do with him. Normally well behaved, he shoved himself between us and would NOT let this guy near me.

At that moment, despite being like, 17, I knew something was up, and ultimately things didn鈥檛 pan out for guy and me.

OMG Yeah okay, those edits were made by her dad, a cishet person - and also her dad, a Holocaust survivor, who would have been brutally aware that when the diary was first published in freakin鈥 1947, had he included anything which people could use to demonize his daughter or tar her as some kind of聽鈥減ervert鈥, it would prevent the message he was trying to send about the horrors of the Holocaust and the heroism of his daughter from being properly understood and accepted the way he hoped. That isn鈥檛 fair. It isn鈥檛 just. But it is reality. If Otto Frank had let this be included in the published version, there鈥檚 a large chance the homophobic backlash would have prevented the book from reaching the audience it did and spreading the message it needed to. It was NINETEEN. FORTY. SEVEN. The Holocaust had ended TWO YEARS AGO. The acceptance of LGBT identities was basically nonexistent. Otto Frank made a decision based on the time and place he was living in, about what the world at that time was and wasn鈥檛 ready to accept.聽 Let me say this as bluntly as I can - I am a bisexual Jewish girl and I would have made the same decision Otto Frank did. Making sure Anne Frank was unambiguously seen as sympathic and heroic was more important. Making sure people weren鈥檛 sidetracked from the main issue of the Holocaust was more important. He shouldn鈥檛 have had to make that decision, without doubt. Anne Frank鈥檚 sexuality (however she would have identified in modern terms) shouldn鈥檛 be considered relevant to her status as a hero or a sympathetic victim. But in 1947, it undoubtedly would have been. Otto Frank survived Auschwitz and lost his entire family (a wife and two teenage daughters)聽to the horrors of the Holocaust. He hoped that publishing his daughter鈥檚 diary would spread awareness and sympathy for the victims of the Holocaust. If he had to make sacrifices to do that - well frankly, so fucking be it. I don鈥檛 know who alive today has the right to judge him.聽 Thank you for that addition. We cannot blanket demonize people while ignoring context.

I鈥檓 just now finding out Anne Frank was bi??? OMG
Yeah okay, those edits were made by her dad, a cishet person - and also her dad, a Holocaust survivor, who would have been brutally aware that when the diary was first published in freakin鈥 1947, had he included anything which people could use to demonize his daughter or tar her as some kind of聽鈥減ervert鈥, it would prevent the message he was trying to send about the horrors of the Holocaust and the heroism of his daughter from being properly understood and accepted the way he hoped.
That isn鈥檛 fair. It isn鈥檛 just. But it is reality. If Otto Frank had let this be included in the published version, there鈥檚 a large chance the homophobic backlash would have prevented the book from reaching the audience it did and spreading the message it needed to. It was NINETEEN. FORTY. SEVEN. The Holocaust had ended TWO YEARS AGO. The acceptance of LGBT identities was basically nonexistent. Otto Frank made a decision based on the time and place he was living in, about what the world at that time was and wasn鈥檛 ready to accept.聽
Let me say this as bluntly as I can - I am a bisexual Jewish girl and I would have made the same decision Otto Frank did. Making sure Anne Frank was unambiguously seen as sympathic and heroic was more important. Making sure people weren鈥檛 sidetracked from the main issue of the Holocaust was more important. He shouldn鈥檛 have had to make that decision, without doubt. Anne Frank鈥檚 sexuality (however she would have identified in modern terms) shouldn鈥檛 be considered relevant to her status as a hero or a sympathetic victim. But in 1947, it undoubtedly would have been.
Otto Frank survived Auschwitz and lost his entire family (a wife and two teenage daughters)聽to the horrors of the Holocaust. He hoped that publishing his daughter鈥檚 diary would spread awareness and sympathy for the victims of the Holocaust. If he had to make sacrifices to do that - well frankly, so fucking be it. I don鈥檛 know who alive today has the right to judge him.聽

Thank you for that addition. We cannot blanket demonize people while ignoring context.
