Playboy lowers itself to ranks of twisted fetish magazines

June 1, 2009 by  

There was a time when the joke “I just read Playboy for the articles” was funny because it could be true. These days, that standard of editorial content seems to be out the window. Because any magazine that publishes the violently sexist “Top-10 Conservative Women We Hate,” just can’t be considered anything more than yet another classless, woman-hater wank mag. Here’s the intro:

Obama promised us the dream of post-partisanship-a cuckoo land where party affiliation and factional animosity were forgotten. Turn on cable news or open any newspaper, however, and you’ll quickly discover that the dream has yet to materialize. But there is a way to reach across the aisle without letting principles fall by the wayside. We speak, naturally, of the hate f***. We may despise everything these women represent, but goddammit they’re hot. Let the healing begin.

The piece then goes on to discuss why and how they’d like to hate f*** each conservative woman. Basically, the whole thing is a list of the Violence-against-Women and rape fantasies of its author, Guy Cimbalo.

But, you know what, I don’t blame Cimbalo at all. At least not in the spirit of this post. Because, the story would be languishing on some obscure web site right now if Playboy decided to reject it. But instead, they ran it. And the transformation is complete. Playboy, once known as a magazine that featured strong literature, is now relegated to the ranks of twisted fetish magazines.

Update: Playboy has pulled the piece from the site, but continues to show its long-time support of Cimbalo’s hate.

    Just imagine the justified ‘Liberal’ outrage if say, ‘Hustler’ Magazine ran a disgusting parody where Rush, Hannity, Beck, Savage and Ann Coulter gang-raped and tickle-tortured Katie Couric, and then Nancy Pelosi.

    Imagine. The outrage would last for months in the MSM. There would be calls for firings and boycotts. NOW would be apoplectic. Poor little outraged, hypocritical Libs.

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    joke about raping women

    if they are conservative
    EVIL freedom lovers…

    .
    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says

    [...] Playboy then showed it’s support for rape-fantasies by posting the piece. [...]
