IMPORTANT READ: Playboy, Rape and Grim Fairy Tales

leave a comment »

Media Lizzy blogs about the Playboy website putting up a graphic piece about the author’s desire to have hate sex with 10 conservative women.  Violent rape.

See NSFW/Kids screen shots HERE, that were abruptly deleted from the Playboy website – after many Republican and Conservative folks went ballistic.

The same Playboy author, Guy Cimbalo, uses the B-word in attacking Michelle Malkin and says she has “mental problems.”  So this wasn’t a fluke, something out of the ordinary for this puke.  He’s a sicko, with a sick mind…the kind of sick f__k that sometimes makes me weep, thinking about their mother or sister(s), and how his words must be such a deep hurt, so very, very painful for them.

AOL News fired liberal writer Tommy Christopher because of his repeated attempts to get coverage of the Playboy attack list on AOL’s Politics Daily. Christopher had first attempted to post this criticism of Playboy’s sick list the day it was published on their website.  Surprise, surprise, he learned that shortly after putting his article on Politics Daily it was deleted by an editor.  In his two years of writing for the site not one other post had ever been deleted by an editor

There are moral absolutes.  Guy Cimbalo and his ilk are free to choose how they live, write, and speak.  Free to behave immorally.  But that does not mean the behavior is acceptable.  Or moral.  It is not.

Go here and read, please.

Get involved, because the next time it could well be you, or someone you know. Blog this story, email it, don’t let it die until AOL and Playboy hear from those of us who know what is moral, what is right.

UPDATE:

For too long we have accepted that the Internet stands for freedom. But freedom without responsibility is mob rule, the jungle. Where being too accepting of this “freedom” has led us to was amply demonstrated in the horrid story Tommy Christopher protested. The father of that creeps story was accepting “MILF” jokes and banter, and the mother was the whole Sarah Palin deal. When a person is bankrupt of ideas or constructive criticism, now they turn to denigration and marginalization. Sometimes, most shockingly, it is done merely because it is easier.

Somehow a new code of ethics needs to be formulated, and all of us need to insist it be followed, and be prepared to suffer the slings and arrows of those who will attack us for insisting upon it. But it needs to be done.

If not, the accepted practices of some, that includes actual intrusion into our private lives and that of our own families, will become increasingly more common. It will become a more wide spread “sport” to see who can draw first blood, literally, in making journalists and bloggers to retreat from their ideas, to actually drive them off the public Internet!
