Like I'm Frigging Larry Flynt


      If you're like me, then you already know who Larry Flynt is. But I'm guessing not a lot of people are like me (which is a good thing because I can be really annoying), so you may not know who he is, that's why I'll just fill you in quickly: He's an American business mogul who made most of his fortune thanks to publishing pornographic material. Have you ever hear of Hustler (DON'T click on the link if vaginas, penises and breasts scare you (why do I have a feeling that my little warning just made 85 % of people click the link))? That's him, he's Hustler.
      Mr. Flynt published his first Hustler Newsletter back in 1972 which was of course met with great disapproval and was prosecuted on obscenity several times. People wanted to prevent him from publishing his magazine, but he stood his ground all the way to Supreme Court. All his life, he has been an avid advocate of the freedom of speech and I can't help but admire him for his spunk, dedication and contribution to the realization of the evasive concept. But why did I decide to write about him out of all people today?
      A few days ago I decided to put up AdSense (Google's advertising program) on my site because a bunch of people had been asking me why I hadn't done that already and I wanted to explore that option anyway so I went ahead and did it. Straight away, I encountered some issues because Blogger has a bug (not just one but that's another story) and something wasn't working properly (or at all) so I turned to the AdSense support forum for help. Instead of answers and advice on possible solutions I got a "suggestion" to change my content or else AsSense will cancel my account. Why? Because I talk about vaginas and penises (you can read the entire thing here). I was flaming mad. I've seen a bunch of pages instigating hatred and intolerance (against gays, against tattooed people, against blacks, against animals, etc.) but they all had AdSense ads, while I SOMETIMES (not all the time in every single post) speak about something as innocent as body parts - if anything, I promote more love than less, for the opposite sex, for the same sex, for yourself, doesn't matter. Besides, my mom reads my posts, for Peet's sake. And she likes them! How bad can they be?!
      I'm not insinuating that mine and Mr. Flynt's situation are the same, far from it. His rights were severely violated while mine aren't: I don't have the right to have AdSense on my page, while Google does in fact have the right to cancel my account. It's all fine and dandy, but it made me feel like I'm the biggest pervert on the planet and us pervs have to stick together so today I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes by Mr. Larry Flynt:
  • The two most misused words in the entire English vocabulary are love and friendship. A true friend would die for you, so when you start trying to count them on one hand, you don't need any fingers.
  • Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
  • You will encounter many distractions and many temptations to put your goal aside: The security of a job, a wife who wants kids, whatever. But if you hang in there, always following your vision, I have no doubt you will succeed.
  • Religion has caused more harm than any other idea since the beginning of time. There's nothing good I can say about it. People use it as a crutch.
  • Moses freed the Jews. Lincoln freed the slaves. I freed the neurotics.
  • People aren't interested in others controlling what they can do or read or see in the privacy of their own homes.
  • There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
  • A pig has just as many rights as a man.
  • Along with a strong belief in your own inner voice, you also need laser-like focus combined with unwavering determination.
  • Just because I publish pornography does not mean that I'm not concerned about the social ills that all of us are.
  • What is more obscene: porn or war?
  • If the human body's obscene, complain to the manufacturer, not to me.
  • You have to be able to tolerate what you don't necessarily like so you can be free.

      Although my ears have been blood red with anger for the past two days, maybe all of this has been a blessing in disguise. Since people at AdSense were concerned some advertisers will be offended by my choice of words and topics, now I don't have to worry about the sensitive advertisers' ears (or eyes) and I can write whatever I want and right now all I want to write is fuck, shit, ass, bitch, cunt - don't blame me, I'm just quoting Eminem.

  3. Oh god I think I'm a pervert, I've just spent longer on that Hustler website than I think I should have - instead of clicking off as soon as clicked on, I scrolled down instead and now I cant focus on what I should be writing - I'm not prudish or anything but..........

    Anyway that's hilarious about adsense and trust you to be a little rebel. Love his quotes, especially the porn and war one!

  8. I've watched the movie about Larry Flynt which stars Woody Harelson
    Flynt is such a character and his life really interesting.
    Courtney Love was really good in there too.

    Your outfit rocks!

  10. Seriously?! I'm shaken too now! Lol, I'm wondering how the world goes! If they get offended by your posts, there is for sure something wrong! I like to read your funny posts everytime and NEVER have been offended in some way! Hopefully I never tried to put AdSense, many times I see that sites work worst with it! Sorry for you Peet, I can get what you felt! And lol, I agree with his quotes!:) Looking very cool, I'm in love with the blazer! Kisses, have a lovely evening! xo

  11. You look amazing! We love the legging, we did a diy post about this kind of legging!
    We love your blog!

  12. I know that feeling. I grew up (and kind of currently live in) an area that isn't exactly sex positive while I am. Not only that, but people are also afraid to talk about these things in private. Why are body parts so shameful? What is "obscene" language but words? I just don't understand.
    I think you look absolutely amazing in your outfit and those leggings your boyfriend hates.

  14. Hi Peet, whats so great about you is that you're not afraid to say exactly what you think..its an amazing quality to have, I wish we were all so courageous. I don't understand why Adsense would do this to you when there are far far more degrading sites out there that have tons of advertising, its a sham! Continue being who you are, because you are just fabulous that way and no one cares about annoying adverts anyways, ;)
    Terrific outfit, love the contrast of bright pink with black and white. the leggings are too cool!

  15. I wouldn't worry about google and their ads .. well, it just goes to prove that censorship is alive and well within the internet.

  17. Ah yes Google. The king and queen of the Internets. Google knows best.
    While your whole experience with AdSense is unfortunate (one of the reasons I don't do it on my blog is that it can be naughty), all I could think of is the location where you took this shots. WHERE IS IT? It's so freaking cool.

  21. awesome outfit and background, my question is why out of all of your posts did they just get stuck on the ones about natural bodily organs, you don't talk about sexuality and what not ALL the time, it's like they looked at your blog for 5 seconds, saw a title of a post and went off in a completely different direction than your initial question, don't worry about Adsense just keep being great

  22. You're beginning to achieve super-hero status in my eyes! I couldn't agree more. War is obscene. The human body is not. Bigots and haters tend to cloak their prejudice in the skirts of religious dogma and hide behind their children while they attempt to make the rest of the world conform to their own narrow-minded agenda. I myself have never asked for or taken any money for anything on the internet, yet I have been censored multiple times because my gender is different than the gender usually associated with the lingerie (panties) I model and review on my YouTube (Mister Panty Buns's Channel) - one video that had well over 7,000 views is gone, so the total view count for my videos should read closer to 88,000 instead of 80,500.
    Larry Flint was a staunch defender of freedom of the press - a First Amendment right that's been getting eviscerated lately. In my opinion the censorship occurs thanks to the prudes and their sock puppets doing false flagging, spamming their hate in comments and infiltrating moderation panels. Those Larry Flint quotes are great! Even though I already knew who he was I clicked on the link anyway :)
    Your deep pink blazer. DIY top and Forever 21 leggings all look great together.

  24. I am in shock since I read this. You can't put "boobs", "vagina" or "penis" but other people can put "fucking nigger", "fag" or "thight gap"?

    I love Flynt`s quotes , especially: "Religion has caused more harm than any other idea to since the beginning of time", "Moses freed the Jews. Lincoln freed the slaves. I freed the neurotics" and "What is more obscene: porn or war? " I didn't know anything about this man (I`m not very regular about porn), but I found this story and his personalyty very interesting.

    That shirt is really incredible. How is is done?
    And photo scenes are getting better and better. They are terrific!! <3
