    Good riddance to Hef. He did NOT make the world a better place.

  • Lucia Lola

    Time to re-read the piece on Rob Ford and not having to mourn the loss of nothing (outside of family and loved ones). Frankly, I found him repugnant and reprehensible.

  • fragglerock

    I am so glad that misogynist pig is dead! Anyone join me to dance on his grave??

  • M. Zoidberg

    Burn in Hell, Hef. I mean that from the deepest parts of my shell.

    Pimp is the world’s oldest profession — not prostitute.

  • Kendall Turtle

    I keep seeing all these “RIP Hugh Hefner” on Facebook and I’m just hoping if there’s a hell he is burning in it.

    • Rae

      Hopefully, he’s burning at the Ninth Ring of Hell.

    Hugh Heffner is dead? Who cares?

  • catlogic

    Good. Fucking. Riddance. He was overdue. May his afterlife be one of devastating, total self-awareness.

    • shy virago

      I agree!

  • What the pig did was atrocious enough. I wake up this morning to headlines about “the visionary” pimp. Can you see the reaction if somebody called Sessions a “visonary of new racial relations”? Or Arpaio a “visionary on immigration”? But it’s A-OK to call someone who makes it fine and fun to market women a “visionary.” And sexism is over.

    Regarding ‘intersectionality’ no longer including back women: Welcome to the patriarchy party! Anything you say can and will be used against you.

    Also, water is wet.

  • Rae

    I concur!

    Excluding black women from intersectionality? Do I have to go Venn diagram on some people?
