Another bit of evidence of the strange connection between feminism and pornography that keeps appearing in contemporary cultural commentary. Did you know that Playboy has been run by a woman (Hugh Hefner’s daughter) for the last thirty years?
I found this remark about Christie Hefner in the NY Times:
“She’s certainly a liberal feminist and a liberal Democrat,” said Mr. Navasky, former editor of the liberal Nation. “People would say, ‘so what’s she doing putting out a magazine and running clubs catering to horny men?’ But she found a way to make it work consistent with her values, to serve Playboy and her father and give them an opportunity to do socially useful things.”
So, objectifying women by selling their nude pictures to men is now supposed to be “consistent” with feminist values?
