I caught Ace administering an epic beatdown to Jane Pratt on Twitter. Unfortunately, he was tweeting her old Twitter account and he moved on.
But reading the posts you can understand why the despair.
At AoSHQ, "Sydney Leathers, XOJane, and Slouching Towards Idiocracy":
Lisa DePasquale was a little hurt that Jane Pratt, who was a childhood hero of hers for editing teen girls' magazines that appealed to the "Smart Girls," is now peddling Sydney Leathers' Idiot's Guide to Getting Older Married Men to Masturbate for You Over the Internet how-to manual.And see, "Slouching Towards Idiocracy."
I linked this in the sidebar yesterday -- but I assumed she was self-publishing or maybe had some kind of deal via, I don't know, Vivid Entertainment's literary imprint, if you can imagine such a thing.
Nope! Teen Girl's Magazine. (Correction: I'm told it's a women's magazine for girls who used to read the teen magazine Sassy. But see my note at the end.) Click the link to the see the story and read what Jane Pratt thinks is important information for teen girls.
How sad is this?
Teen magazines used to peddle the fantasy of becoming a Fashion Model.
Now they peddle the fantasy of becoming a Vagina Model.
This really made me sad for the pathetic current state of the human condition in America in the Age of Obama. How low will we actually go? When teen magazines are celebrating a half-wit's skill at baiting men into 'batin', how far are we from Idiocracy?
BONUS: The original piece at xoJane, "ANTHONY WEINER'S SEXTING PARTNER SYDNEY LEATHERS REVEALS HER 10 SECRETS FOR SEDUCING A POLITICIAN.
It's all of a piece.
The left is succeeding in destroying the culture. The trick will be resisting despair. Leftist regressive overreach is upon now and we'll see some real political shifts in the upcoming elections.
