a reply to: [post=22708888]randomtangentsrme[/post Did you watch his tv show? The guy was gross. He did nothing to help women with his magazine except turn them all into sex gods. They were willing. Women didn't have a lot of options in the 50s. He was always men's wet dreams. Not womens-they just used him as a stepping stone. Hollywood was never friendly to women except for the casting chair. We all know this. It doesn't need more explanation. And, oh, yeah-I'm sure you guys read it for the great "Articles."


No I did not watch the TV show. I was not alive when it aired.

You have a very misguided view of Hollywood, and the modeling industry.

In the 60s and 70s he had some great contributing writers, Ray Bradbury, Shel Silverstein, Arthur C. Clark, et al. So yes, some of us do or did read it for the articles.

Some things you are missing in the casual dismissal of Mr. Hefner, are the huge support he had for civil and gay rights. As well as how he helped to reshape the American mindset about these issues, due to a very large circulation of his magazine.

Oh, so you're young. I lived through Hef's time. He objectified women. Nuff said.

I know ... if you would have read my posts , I specifically said " nobody knows where he is "
I also said I hope he is with Jesus , because I do not know what was in his heart and mind at the hour of his death.
People have been implying I said he was in hell , which I didn't... just merely stated he didn't lead a very Christian life...and he isn't someone to idolize.

I'm from the belief system that there is a place for those with remorse , and they need prayers as they go through atonement.

Hugh Heffner is in my prayers ... the rest is up to Jesus .

"In a better place now" is a tall order for this dude.

Sorry but the whole world objectifies EVERYTHING. He simply did what all good entrepreneurs do, marry a market with a product.

He also gave female photographers jobs when no one in any media would.

So, because everyone in your opinion does it, it s okay. sorry, don't buy it.

Lots of bad stuff happened at that mansion. Guess it's easy to forget. If you are young, you will not have a clue of what life was like for women and how Playboy treated women. Please educate yourself before accepting the MSM stories. Read Gloria Steinams account of working at one of his clubs. So much you apparently don't know. Try google.

As a female, and mother of a little girl (who, in 8 years would be game for creeps like Hef) I can't say I shed any tears at the news.

All you dads out there okay with Hef's treatment of teen girls?

Our society celebrates predators like Hef and doesn't promote healthy, meaningful, fulfilling relationships.

(PS: Referring to his "personal" life here and his mansion and its rules, rather than the mag.)

So when is "Heff - The Movie" coming out? I think he looks like Woody Harrelson.

Remember the "war" between Playboy and Penthouse?

Social media is throwing it around that he was killed.

We'll see.

I pretty much think the devil protects his own though.

peace

Old Heff was a Pedophile! He had a 10 year old Brooke Shields pose nude in his magazine. Child porn!

Wow - I never knew that. Makes one wonder what was really going on in the mansion!
