America OnLine Takes Firm Stance in Defense of Rape Fantasies

Time to funsubscribe from AOL too, if you're still one of the thirty people using it.

First, as was suspected, AOL's politics blogger Tommy Christopher was fired from his job for covering the Playboy hate-"Love" list.

He even lied to cover up for his employer:

There was no profanity in my original Playboy story for Politics Daily, although this was the reason given for its deletion. I embellished the reasoning when republishing it to shield my employer from criticism.

By which I think he means he pretended this reason was truthful, even though he knew it was a lie.

And still he was fired.

He was fired by his boss Melinda Henneberger. Now, it just so happens that this woman used to blog at DoubleXX. So she still has friends there, one would presume. And this DoubleXX blog just happened to swoop in to Playboy's defense, attacking, by implication, critics of the hate-"love" piece like Tommy Christopher.

Apparently, free speech is so over when the masses rule the media: ďItís only OK if I think itís funny. Itís only OK if it fits my politics. Itís only OK if I say it is.Ē I wish Playboy hadnít pulled it. Censoring the piece doesnít make it any less real, any less politically incorrect, any less true. Attempting to police human nature is the real joke here.

Meinda Hennenberger also defended the media's non-coverage of the John Edwards babydaddy scandal as well.

She seems to find the thought of running any stories that embarrass the left anathema.

Or was she merely doing the bidding of her corporate masters?

Has the fact that AOLís parent company, Time Warner, has a business relationship with Playboy may have affected their editorial decisions? After all Time Warner is a major national distributor of Playboy TV through their cable company.

Either way, AOL now is a great defender of rape fantasies, and a severe opponent of anyone daring to criticize rape fantasies.

In more news about this: "non-partisan" liberal feminist Bonnie Erbe kinda-sorta chastised Playboy for running the screed. However, she then decided that Michelle Malkin was, as the saying goes, a dirty slut just asking for it.

Yes, I'm sure women the world over are glad to have the "non-partisan" Ms. Erbe defending women from vicious rape fantasies. So long as the women in question are, like her, suitably "non-partisan."

Below the fold, the Megyn Kelly response I'm sure you've already seen. It's not Megyn at her best: Because, I'm sure, she feels the need to restrain herself, being, against her will, a target of the rape-fantasist Guy Cimbalo.

So she doesn't really tee off. Although the anger is palpable.



The good news for Playboy is, I guess, that people are talking about Playboy for the first time since 1983.
